I do not think I know an engineer that smokes. We called those rooms full of engineers bullpens in aerospace and they have long transformed into cubicle farms. But the latest trend is to go back to a bullpen like open area with no assigned space. Try to find your supervisor in that sea of bodies when he has a different location each day!

Way back in 86 it took a small static model of one SRB cable cover 6 hrs to run on the latest 'hot' DEC computer. Then the IBM workstation arrived. I submitted the model and 3 minutes later - 'bing', signalling the job completed. I thought there was a data error. No, it was done. As was the era of those massive mainframes.
