Crappy software

Written on Friday, September 23, 2005 by Jessica

One of my jobs as a tech writer is to write help for software. (Press F1 and ta da! --useless information appears.) I'm working on a new piece of software that is just terrible. The programer left out crucial cues to help the user know what to do. This guy no longer works for us. He now works for Microsoft. (I'm not kidding.)

    Thanks for leaving a message on my blog.

    Jessica to answer your question about the sport versus sports thing. I think that we over here may take the singular and the plural of that word and use it like that if you know what I mean, whereas you guys just have one word to describe both ways.
    I also believe that alot of American words are now filtering into the British language that it is sometimes hard to remember which words and phrases are originally British and which are new American ones.
