I'm not even sure it makes sense to *me*. But it would probably help to know that all Engineers get an iron ring when they graduate.

"The Iron Ring is a symbolic ring worn by many Canadian engineers. Obtaining the ring is an optional endeavour – the ring is not a prerequisite for practicing professional engineering in Canada."

I understood it as you don't need to get a ring, but it is a pretty habit. :)

Like a sledgehammer for beaing uncooperative co-workers and computers! Yeah, you could call it "The Piecemaker" Stylish and practical :) And now I'm just rambling. Sorry.

Canadian Software Engineers that came from an accredited program, generally a subset of Electrical & Computer engineering, *do* get an iron ring.

Engineering school teaches the secret of iron, obviously. We mere mortals can only guess what the ring really symbolizes.
