While cleaning up around the house today, I ran across some notes from grad school. I took a networking course from Mike Westall while I was at Clemson. I never took that many notes (probably should have) but I ran across a piece of paper where I had written this:

for any theory there exists a workload that will prove it correct and other theories wrong

—Westall's Law

I thought Westall was the man back then. A true hard core computer scientist. After almost a decade in industry, that quote reminds me that he's still the man.
