"...as Einstein said, 'Ideas are a dime a dozen. People who put them into action are priceless.'" While it's pleasing (and appropriate) for me to be mentioned in the same article as Albert Einstein (a mean fiddler himself) I've long lamented the misidentification of my program as a "recycle" program, rather than a "re-use" program.
