When Scrolls Gave Way to Codices

I understand that this has been around for a while, but I just encountered it a few weeks ago. I laughed hard enough that I whimpered, so naturally I had to share it with you. Enjoy!

That was me when I was given my first iPod. “Where is the manual?” I asked. And was answered: “It’s online.”

Aaaaack! 😀

  1. Even with the online versions (which are the 21st century version of Catch 22) there’s always the little bits that are left out because the ijit who wrote the manual ‘assumed’ that everyone would know about the ‘intuitive’ parts … or the manual is the final result of a google translation through three (including Latin!) languages!

    • Yep. The “‘assumed’ everyone would know” parts get me every time. I can just about guarantee that anything a computer geek thinks is obvious is not obvious to me. 😀
