Thought for the month

“There is nothing noble in being superior to some other man. The true nobility is in being superior to your previous self.” Probably W.L. Sheldon, US lecturer on ethics (1858 – 1907) rather than Ernest Hemingway.

Always works for me

NASA has been having some system problems with its Kepler spacecraft designed to survey regions of the Milky Way for Earth-size planets in or near the habitable zone. Whilst probably slightly under playing the work of the scientists and engineers, my interpretation of the explanation that power-cycling the onboard computers and subsystems appears to have cleared the problem is that turning stuff off and on sorted things.
