June 7, 2006 Tutorial: Putting in a Table of Contents

by @ 11:58 am. Filed under How-To, SUSE Tips & Tricks

If you are in a long document, you can lose your place. Also, if you are looking for something in particular, you may have to scan the entire document looking for that topic. However, if you want to get around these two problems, put in a Table of Contents. The readers of your document will love you for it.

GIMP tutorial: Making Beveled Edges

I surely love this quote

I didn’t catch where this came from, but man, I love it:

“You don’t know how to get to the control panel let alone operate in it so you can’t figure out how to uninstall programs. (You might not even know such a thing exists) As a result, for all eternity when you boot, norton, mcafee and pc-cillin all annoy the heck out of you constantly telling you that you should sign up for their updating service and buy full versions of their products. They all also run scans at random times for your 120 day trial (after which they still bug you) and this slows your computer down to a crawl on a constant basis. You also have AOL, Netscape, Netzero and other ISP message popping up every time you boot and no doubt 17 other programs asking you to finish or start some process that will no doubt ask you for a credit card number.”

I worked at a place doing tech support once. This describes 482% of the people I tried to help, but were completely beyond even my reach.
