Glenn, thanks for that troubleshooting story. I love hearing stories about someone who uses logic to solve problems. Troubleshooting skills, which included logical thinking, was one of the things I learn in community college but not much was taught to students when I attended engineering school. As an engineer, I find more times than not we are expected to troubleshoot design and other issues where troubleshooting skills are definitely needed. Thanks to my community college school training, I have solved numerous longstanding problems with just the simple skills I learned in community college.
