Only Good Code - Old Code!

Compare then... ‘Like life in general our codes seem to get more and more complicated. In this one we are discussing tonight, before an engineer can determine the pressures for which he is designing his building, he has to assess about four different factors, depending on this or that. Some of them are given to two places of decimals, which gives us an idea of accuracy that certainly is not justified by the assumptions made in assessing these factors.’(1970) 48,245-246.
