1. Read the instructions.

2. Follow the instructions.

3. Before performing step 2, read ALL the instructions.

The above was inspired by the instructions for cleaning the printhead on my HP printer. They do not tell you to gather appropriate cleaning materials until well into the procedure.

Who's writing these instructions, anyway? Surely none of the subscribers to TECHWR-L!
