Sometimes I lie awake at night, and I ask, "Where have I gone wrong?"

Then a voice says to me, "This is going to take more than one night."

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

Researchers at Northwestern University announced in the Oct. 15, 1999 issue of Science that they have invented the world's smallest and most accurate plotter. Their so-called nanoplotter is capable of drawing minuscule lines - each is only about 30 molecules wide - with such precision that only 200 billionths of an inch separates them.

If the technology can be commercialized, it might be used to pack more processing power onto a computer chip, boosting speed and performance. It could also lead to diagnostic devices that can load thousands of medical sensors onto an area smaller than the head of a pin.
