Whew! I'm glad your question was actually about "Ask The Experts"...I read you post's title and thought you were asking where are the experts on this forum....which would have required a delicate answer suach as "we have two kinds of experts here...those who know they aren't but strive to be, and those that aren't but think they are."

Despite my best efforts, I sometimes fall into the later category...

Either you're an expert smart ass, or you meant to say, "I am an expert, smart ass."  I assume either would apply.  :)

Behold the power of the comma!

Yes, well, either would apply, as I am a smart ass too! (or, to stay with the punctuation theme, a "clever colon")

Pancho Barnes once told me her definition of an expert,
"Well, an 'Ex' is something that has been.  A spurt is a leak under pressure.  I guess that makes an expert a has-been leak under pressure."

An expert is a man who has made all the mistakes which can be made, in a narrow field.

As a reformed IT consultant, we used to have an expression that "an expert is anyone from out of town."

That was "Expert" in my last company.

I worked in a power plant for 15 years where everyone was the best of the best.  It was unspoken and understood.  

Calling someone "Expert" was an insult.

We had out of town consultants and vendors who came to the plant as a condition of warrantee.  One or two were held in high esteem.  Most were either endured or ignored, or if they were interested, shown what their equipment was really capable of.

I love living here in Hawaii, and wouldn't trade it for the world, but there are times when I miss being a part of those who make the megawatts flow.
