Sometimes it's incredibly important to press the buttons to rate articles you read on the web; for example, a recent piece of mine own.
Ok, here's the position. You know how – sometimes – when you read an article on a website, there are buttons to click at the bottom for you to rate the article . . . but you can rarely be bothered to rouse yourself to the effort unless you either love it or loath it?
Well, in some cases it's amazingly, dreadfully, excruciatingly, incredibly (I could go on like this for hours) important to provide your feedback. As a simple example that I'm just plucking out of thin air, I just started a series of articles on the building of my "Heath Robinson Rube Goldberg Multifarious Technology Computer" for the IBM Power.Org website (this is "The Beast" that's going to be constructed as a mixture of relays, vacuum tubes, transistors, fluidic logic, . . . and some really weird stuff).
You can find this article at the top of the DeveloperWorks/Power page (and here's a Direct Link in case you have any problems).
The point is that this is the first of a series and it was only posted to their site a couple of days ago, so I really want to make a good impression. Thus, if you find yourself with a free moment, it would be great if you could bounce over there, peruse the article, and click the rating buttons at the bottom (of course, I'd prefer a positive rating given a choice, but I leave that in your firm but fair hands).
