Ever had to read documentation that wasn’t well written, was full of gaps, or just didn’t make a whole lot of sense? I’ve created a word for documentation like this: cryptomentation. Because it’s documentation that’s cryptic.
A somewhat related random quote:
“Why would there be documentation? It’s called “code” for a reason.” -Unknown
You’re probably familiar with this quote:
“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” ― Albert Einstein (src)
This past week I’ve had to deal with windows servers, something I neither excel in nor do I have the desire to excel in. So, to put a bit of a geeky spin on an Einstein quote, I rephrased it as this:
Don’t judge a penguin by its ability to clean a window.
