But... and it's a BIG-G-G-G but
Some database software is so simple and so intuitive (self-documenting,
they're calling it now), that little more than a half-dozen pages is
needed. I just finished a *Jewelcase Instruction Booklet* (my final
selection of terms) that I really had to stretch to reach 24 pages; 16
would have been plenty, but marketing wanted more.
I appreciate your comments, Matt, which (unlike some of mine) always
come without sarcasm.
