The Benjamina Project
I am designing a sewage pumping station with its 700 meter long sewage pipe. I spent hours last night calculating on a hand computer the Hazen Williams equation. This morning I found a website where the design could be made interactively. I checked my calculations (they were right) and immediately tried several alternatives. In a few minutes I did more work than TAHAL's best engineers did in a month, that is, a generation ago. I won a bid for a treated wastewater project near Ariel, I am slowly getting to the professional place I wanted. If it is going to be so easy, I may get bored too soon.
