This is the blog of Ronald Bartels that wanders on and off the subject of problem management (that is how it started), but it is best described by Ray who says this is Daddy's thoughts! Like the best music is from the Eighties and a wee dram helps in solving most inconveniences.
Zen and the Art of computer maintenance
Zen and the Art of motorcycle maintenance
is one of my favourite books. What motorcycles are to Pirsig, computers
are to me. He spent hours tinkering on the motorcycle and I spent hours
tinkering on the computer (as can be verified when I'm trying to work
out why something on the network is slow). Pirsig demonstrates that
motorcycle maintenance may be dull and tedious drudgery or an exciting
and pleasurable pastime. It all depends on the inner attitude and peace
of mind (or the lack of it).
