"Semi-retired" from English.SE for now. It was a lot of fun for a few months, but it's too addictive.

An anonymous user suggested an edit rewriting this answer to include the word "hydropneumatics"; I'm just placing the word as a comment here.

comment What is meant by “steep learning curve”?
@Peter: The technical meaning of "learning curve" is well-established in the literature, so we can't just swap the axes without adding to the confusion. (Besides, it seems weird to have something so regularly increasing as time on the y-axis, and have the actually variable quantity (learning) on the x-axis. Usually if one of the axes is time, it's drawn on the x-axis.)
