In the never ending quest for usability I've had much help, last on the manual side of things. Nudges, advice and some friendly kicks in the butt - much appreciated!
Niko pointed me in one direction which included the "meaning" of thingamy, and where all business design starts (yep, that is where thingamy starts too).
He even drew me a neat overview while on the Metro (Finns work everywhere!):
Then Sarah sent me a mail describing how she avoids tech terms when explaining adjustments to the rear derailleur (there I go again) on a bike, in full knowledge I would get the point that way, use a tiny spoon ;)
Fully inspired, perhaps not much better at anything, but yes, inspired, I sat down and wrote a three page what-is-thingamy-and-how-do-you-use-it-manual a late evening. Sent it off to the my two advisors...
Sarah was optimistic (but saw need for tweaks) and Niko was lazy and did not want more than one page (laziness is the mother of many inventions) so I threw out two thirds of the yada, yada and ended up with something.
More of an experiment. One page to explain all and everything. Optimistic.
Included it here on the thingamy site if you're curious...
Still thinking though.
