Just looked at this again…must try to use it more (yup, it‘s a blog that belongs to me!)...
Never be afraid to tell the world who you are.
Clarke’s three laws:
1. When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.
2. The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.
3. Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
It‘s not a show stopper, but it certainly slows it down!
