I mostly read the PDF versions for Cisco Documentation. Mostly because reading in a web browser isn’t as good as using Preview on a Mac and certainly more preferable than the lousy font rendering in MS Windows.
On a separate note, I loathe being asked to complete customer surveys and providing feedback because it happens so often. It must be fashionable among the MBA and marketing types because it never bloody stops. It sure feels like every vendor interaction these days involves taking yet another survey. It can’t be long before a survey will be included in the PO acceptance process – This sounds disturbingly possible: SalesRep: “Hi, I see you didn’t complete our customer survey on the Purchase order. I’m sorry but we accept your order until you complete the anonymous survey”.
Yeah right. Anonymous my hat.
But I digress. It’s certainly easy to waste hours in a week answering stupid surveys and feedback requests.
But right now I’m get mighty annoyed when reading ANY documentation for the Nexus product line you get this on every bloody page:
- It’s really annoyingly offensive
- It’s aesthetically ugly to the document layout.
- It’s been there for over three years.
- I hate being asked to do someone else’s job for them. Are they too lazy to check it for themselves ?
I’ve sent them an email :
Here is my document comment: Can you please remove the ” Send document comments to firstname.lastname@example.org from the top of every page in PDF version. It’s really, really annoying. I’m tired of being asked to do your work for you.
Please help me in improving my work life by ridding the world of this visual abomination and send an email to nexus7k-docfeedback@ cisco.com
I thank you.
