"Effective machine operation requires patience, kindness, and diligence.  Please note that nominal systems operation will fluctuate over time.  Running regular diagnostics and monitoring feedback during normal operations, not just in times of crisis, provides a useful baseline and instills maintenance habits that will go a long way to prevent avoidable malfunction and breakage.  Every machine has its own specific needs, and this diagnostic program is by no means comprehensive, but shoring up these common issues enables you to obtain clearer data on unique problem areas."

A game to be played (solo or with trusted friends) when you feel like garbage and don't know why.

[Please note that this primer is not written by a professional, but by a fellow pilot with experience wresting the controls of a spiraling machine, and should be followed accordingly.]

This diagnostic is both an excellent tool and a beautiful work. I have used it often over the last few years when malfunctions in my rig's programming cause interface issues with my other diagnostic tools. This tool allows me to approach machine maintenance with the kind of detached and efficient mindset often lacking when alerts are only registered mid-spiral. I keep a copy on every PAD I have owned and frequently recommended it as a tool to my fellow pilots.

Thank you. This thing you have made has had a real and lasting impact on the way I live, think, and pilot. It is beautiful.
