This blog has a name, since blogs are supposed to have names, and I picked one as follows. I once told a friend of mine, whose parents are both physicians, about something I did to solve a techy problem. He didn't like my solution very much, and had this to say about it: "Proper fixation is one substitute for anaesthesia".
Well, I liked the remark. Fits with my world view. Or whatever it is I use as a substitute for a world view.
