Is it wrong that when faced with a proper cooked dinner, served at approximately the normal time for said meal, that I wonder how on earth I’m going to…Continue reading Perspective

Coming soon…

As we approach the end of our migration from FrameMaker 7 to Author-it, I’m going to try and pull together some lessons learned, some tips, and useful links that I’ve found along the way.
