Construction is on the "UP"

Hi, I am an "oldie" from the UK construction industry. Its time for me to stop but I cant, instead of pulling on my slippers and cardigan, I pull on my PPE.
I live in a world of constant improvement, theodolite becomes robotic total station, notepad and pencil becomes stylus and PC. Where will it end and when will I have had enough? I recon the answer to both is "never".
I studied for 5 years, only to find that what I learned was out of date by the sixth year. I am still hungry and my appetite knows no limits.
So, I am constantly moving, constantly learning, just in time to find that what I learned is out of date. Feed me!!!!
Our purpose is to make things out of date, which you seem quite 'UP'to.
You can pass on the 'Onward Christian soldier' (read as CEan soldier) to the youngsters here.
Welcome to the world of '(version) change is the only constant thing'.
