It's Absolutely Perfect! ...but



Reminds me of junior high shop class...

No matter how perfectly I adjusted the table saw (and I had already been building cabinets and doing woodwork for a while by jr. high, so I knew how to set it up), my shop teacher couldn't refrain from making some last-minute micro adjustment to the fence or the blade height before he would give me the okay to make the cut.  I guess it made him feel like he was earning his pay.

Now, when it comes to the structural engineering of buildings where even a small error can result in catastrophe, the more nitpicking the better.  As Jim Collins famously said, "Good is the enemy of great".  No one ever achieved excellence by settling for good enough.
