The governing equations of aerodynamics are actually pretty intuitively simple, but actually solving practical engineering problems is way too fundamentally difficult for all but the simplest of problems. Engineering is about useful approximations though, and the first step of discretization, the process of turning an exact but unsolvable problem into a bunch of immensely easier approximate problems, is to generate a grid on which to solve the problem.

In which I try to communicate the regrets that surfaced last weekend when I plugged in my old laptop and sifted through a decade-old folder called
