Comments: More Work with my Kids

Was the blueprint from your company?

Was the company name above the CAGE code on the blueprint anything near to the company's current name?

How many name changes have occurred in the last 45 years? Is the CAGE code the same? Is the CAGE code old enough that it only contains numbers?

Inquiring minds want to know!

Kids probably designed 3/4ths of the stuff I use in daily life. I'm sure that 4 and 5 year olds made the first computers and were later ripped off by teenager Bill Gates.

Oh Thomas, I have to look! I'll check Monday. I do know that the name of the Company X has changed and they did NOT change it on the print. It's not a major change, but it used to have Aircraft at the end of their name and the eliminated that.

I have to think back to the CAGE code. I thought it was only numbers... and I thought it was in the box with the name of the Company... but now... Sheesh, I need to check!

Jihad- My kids have intuitively known how to work every bit of electronic equipment in this house since they could walk. Good Lord. Luckily, my kids were pretty respectful too. None of them tried to put a PBJ in the DVD player...

Speaking of old drawings, 25 years ago (in looking for a site for a microwave communications tower) I pulled a print of one of the company's service centers. The original date on the drawing was 1942. But the thing that shocked me was that the drawing (which hadn't ever been updated) featured right next to the men's showers a little room labeled, "COLORED LOCKER ROOM".

Bou, Bou, Bou. Your company is asking for a major lawsuit by not updating that info box.

Let me tell you, Ford has lost many a lawsuits for things just because the info box isn't up to date. Because the info box isn't up to date then that could mean the entire drawing isn't up to date and that could mean that the vehicle wasn't manufacturered either up to date or it wasn't manufacturered to the drawing.

Stupid? Yes, but lawyers will do anything to win a lawsuit.
