Burdick | I documented the hell out of this system, including both in-depth and | introductory documentation. : | For some reason, people who consider themselves programmers don't mind | being trained users of complex systems where most of the work has already | been done, like Java or Perl -- but if the system doesn't have an O'Reilly | book, they won't go for it. Call Tim and get an animal and their formatting guidelines and produce a mock-up of an O'Reilly book using your documentation that you can give to people who consider themselves programmers but refuse to use your system. -- Erik Naggum, Oslo, Norway Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder. Act from faith, and failure makes you blame someone and push harder.
