          Interesting how the fix for that is a simple if statement. I wonder how many of Mesa's bugs would be just as easily fixed. Well, "easily" in terms of lines of code, because I'm sure it took some time to get to the root of the problem.

            From: http://www.smithsonianmag.com/histor...tady-51912022/

            Ford, whose electrical engineers couldn’t solve some problems they were having with a gigantic generator, called Steinmetz in to the plant. Upon arriving, Steinmetz rejected all assistance and asked only for a notebook, pencil and cot. According to Scott, Steinmetz listened to the generator and scribbled computations on the notepad for two straight days and nights. On the second night, he asked for a ladder, climbed up the generator and made a chalk mark on its side. Then he told Ford’s skeptical engineers to remove a plate at the mark and replace sixteen windings from the field coil. They did, and the generator performed to perfection.

            Henry Ford was thrilled until he got an invoice from General Electric in the amount of $10,000. Ford acknowledged Steinmetz’s success but balked at the figure. He asked for an itemized bill.

            Steinmetz, Scott wrote, responded personally to Ford’s request with the following:

            Making chalk mark on generator $1.

            Knowing where to make mark $9,999.

            Ford paid the bill.

              Henry Ford was an arrogant, formally uneducated man whose timing made him a billionaire; and also gave the world the false impression that intelligence is overrated.

                you don't have to, but it's one of available options

                  most common errors have one-liner fixes. but this one was followed by several patches reverting it and fixing it properly

                    Suffered too from hangs in xcom and other games, like Outlast. Let's hope that this is finally fixed now.
