For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
For peoples interest. Within Australia, if you purchase a software
package and it does not do the job the sales assistant tell you, you are
entitled to a refund. Although all software sellers tell you no refunds
unless goods are faulty, this is not true. I have successfully demanded
my money back after I had installed the software because it did not do
what the sales asssistant had said. (Yes I deleted the software :) )
YOu do have to fight to get the refund, but the magic words Consumer
Affairs make a big difference. I also believe that we need some sort of
software liability. (Although that becomes a minefield)
