Well, it was both.

I guess. The problem was technical because appropriate tools would have made dealing with it much easier, I agree. But that's the less interesting part. The more interesting part is that the lack of these tools exposed LW to some stress and it was the reaction to stress that was more important.

Which provides an important reality check on something, I guess.

The word you might be looking at is "resilience". Or maybe even "competence" :-/
