There is something somewhat unnerving about standing next to huge
generators.  Whether it's an awareness of the power being generated, or
just the sheer force of what's going on inside the casing you're right
next to, I couldn't say.  But you sure get the feeling that you should
keep your distance and don't touch.

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.  I
read messages from the public lists.
