That was my point, Charlie.

All the "huzzah"ing going on right now, about how "we made AISC back
down when they tried to make ASD go away", is going to come to an abrupt
halt when the "late-adopters" get a load of what they're going to have
to learn now, on account of they stopped paying attention in 1986.

Probably every one that is intimately familiar with the 9th Edition ASD
