Hi Mark,

How do you notice when a change breaks something else?  You so
frequently notice these things, it almost seems like you're omniscient!

Do you have an automated mechanism for doing this, or are you manually
checking things frequently?  We should all be able to do this, but I
suspect some people (myself included) are not sure how to do it.  If you
could share any tips, that'd be really nice.

Here's an example of what I mean:
