Subject:Printing an incomplete manual From:Steven Jong <SteveFJong -at- AOL -dot- COM> Date:Fri, 4 Apr 1997 10:22:21 -0500
I am sometimes prone to sweeping analogies, and as I read Mike Starr's
to this thread a whopper rises to the surface:
Sending out incomplete documentation gives as poor an impression of the
product--and of the company that released it--as meeting a job candidate who
shows up punctually for an interview, but with uncombed hair, beard stubble,
pants protruding from unzipped trousers. Yeah, you can meet a deadline, but
not impressed by it.
For what it's worth 8^)
