>> Don't trust only the residuals. Monitor some physical quantities too.

I would like to push `simrego`s suggestion even further by adding my perspective:
Don't give a about the residuals. Monitor the convergence of your computations by probing physical variables within your computation, e.g. velocity, pressure.
