Boy, it went by me completely the first time.  When I was a heat treater I
met quite a few people--machinists, electricians, welders, and others in
skilled trades--who were every bit as smart as the smartest people I've met
in programming.   One of my teachers in the vocational program I attended,
who made his living as a metallurgical consultant and had strong academic
credentials, said "I've met old heat treaters and machinists who were better
metallurgists than most metallurgists I know."
