    Reminds me of a wise old saying I learned from my early beginning in law enforcement(N.O.P.D.)mainly from newly promoted/transferred rank,"If it ain't broken,fix it till it is".

    To be gained - Nothing
    Has it been tried - yes
    If you know it is impractical, then why even consider it.

    I used to hate it when new bosses would make changes just for change's sake.

    On the other hand, sometimes things have been broken for years but nobody wants to change it because they are either lazy or because we have always done it that way.

    I guess it depends.

    Gabe, this is not meant as a criticism. I'm not insinuating that you have wasted the last 10 years. I was just gathering information.

    But I sometimes very much enjoy wasting my time with little mental "projects". As another example, I have often pondered a "new and improved mousetrap". I have imagined new items related to my job ( anesthesia) only to have them introduced 5 years later. It entertains me when I see that. This is a way for me to relax. It is a pleasant distraction for me. mike

    The best (rolls eyes) is when you've been around long enough to see "the cycle"...

    - The traditional standard Method X is flawed so we are introducing an improved Method Y

    - Method Y is okay but could be better so here is an updated Method Z

    - Method Z did not show the desired effect so we are introducing a brand new, cutting-edge system known as Method X

    No worries. I am working on a new shooting position where the arms push and pull and you stand at a 45 degree angle. It will nullify everything else that has come before it.
