Re: A really good article on software usability



Today Anne Wilson did spake thusly:

I repeat - I want to make the decisions.  I do not want anyone else to make
them for me.  If that makes me a control freak, so be it.  My disaster plan
saved my company precisely because I'm a control freak.  You may choose to
save a few seconds of your life, save yourself some effort several times a
day and take risks that are unacceptable to me.  Fine.  You have a right to
choose that.  Just do not make me do the same.

Agreed. As an example, for Les, if you're anything like me, think how many times the fact you have to type "y" has saved you from accidentally rm ing something?

Ever hit send in an email client only to notice something wrong with the email as it whizzes off?

How long a minute is depends on which side of the bathroom door you're on.
