    Hey, this is not fair. I vote, but last group seems to have Unlimited capacity
    A tree is known by its fruit, a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost, he who sows courtesy, reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love.

    Not surprised by the demographics of the poll. Don't think I have ever seen anyone under 30 in this trade even 20 yrs ago.

    20 years ago I would have been 32 (lol).
    When I interact with other people in the trade (sales or service) most of the time they are in the 50+ group. So the poll results are consistent with my experience too.

    With a few notable exceptions I would expect the following categories:

    Freshmen (0-3yrs): Starting from scratch, embarrassed by their lack of experience, unlikely to ask questions or participate.

    Sophomore (3-7yrs): Comfortable with the equipment, feel like they already know everything so no need to ask questions or participate.

    Juniors (7-15yrs): Have seen a few models they know well become obsolete, and have seen technology change enough to know that it is a moving target. Maybe it's time to admit that I don't know everything?

    Seniors (15+yrs): Have forgotten more than the first three groups ever knew. Actually forgot almost everything. Definitely time to ask for some help.

    The numbers might need some adjusting, but I think that covers the basic stages. =^..^=
    If you'd like a serious answer to your request:
    1) demonstrate that you've read the manual
    2) demonstrate that you made some attempt to fix it.
    3) if you're going to ask about jams include the jam code.
    4) if you're going to ask about an error code include the error code.
    5) You are the person onsite. Only you can make observations.

    Seniors (15+yrs): " Actually forgot almost everything. " Yes I have pushed a lot of old data from the grey matter... but I have replaced with new and more of "new" life skills have filled some voids.. but after 31 years... I guess some old shit has got to go!
