Ireland, last week:
The shower gives cold water only.
Well, here I am, ready to rinse the sweat off my chubby body, but without warm water.
The control panel of the shower is unnecessary complex. One of the switches has a red and a blue state. Warm & cold, I think. Wrong! It is one of the on/off switches. I should turn another knob for warm and cold. But the whole thing is inoperative as, outside the cabin, yes even outside the entire bathroom is yet another on/off switch, with a red light. I should have switch that one, before I stood here bottom naked.
Help, all of this is too complex. I don't want on/off switches, I want warm water. Two buttons for the Co-Fu would suffice, I would say:
In SUMit HQ, for the past couple of days I've been busy to shape that course into HTML, with a cascaded style sheet for the looks. You'll find me at the big window, under a double fluorescent lamp with an extra desk lamp. Add a PC, printer, and CD player and you'll have quite an bundle of electrical cables. Help, what a complexity.
I would prefer to have one single button to switch the whole bundle on or off. A simple connector box with switch and a little red light does the job. I can switch the whole bundle on and off with just one touch of a button.
A small setback: Now, when I want to switch on the PC I'll have to switch the red light on first. Hmm, what a well known problem. Might this extra switch be a disprovement? Here I am, with my design experience, as an emperor without clothes. What a cold shower.
