Can one understand the feeling of power and pleasure one gets from running an unusual application like this. Its legacy is the achievement of building a vital and powerful machine, what one learns in doing so and what one teaches others when doing so. And of course the pleasure and pride one gets from such a venture when its completed and then in driving or racing it when its finished.
Let's do our special projects like this now; and I thank God for the now, but as for tomorrow - can you build your special project in the hereafter?
