Old hat


I will definitely not be voting for the 'throw enough of someone else's money at it and it'll work in the end' principle.

That's not my kind of engineering.

And please, please, don't put that stovepipe hat picture in the NCE any more, it has no relevance to anything we do.

Let's be brave and jump into, at least, the 20th century!
