>4. Know the answers to questions before you ask them.
Then what is the point of asking the questions? Isn't that a waste of my
time and the engineer's? I understand your underlying meaning, I think, and
I agree that we should research the answers to our questions and find out as
much as we can before we bother an engineer with a moronic question, but
sometimes asking a moronic question and getting a somewhat decent answer is
what it takes to move forward on a project. And that allows you to
accomplish #10, getting the job done.
