TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
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.
"Our problem is that once data is deleted in our system, it is not
recoverable. Because of this, we cannot use commonly accepted icons
such as a trash receptacle because the trash receptacles used by Mac
and Win95 enable the user to recover the data. In our system, the user
cannot recover data unless they restore from a backup."
Can't the programmers put in a confirmation message box that pops up
stating exactly that, once the icon is clicked? You know, something that
says "Heads up, folks... there's no "Undo" to this one."
