The Little Things...

There's a component of our product that has it's own command line. When you first access it, you are presented with the following text:

Welcome to Foo. Type help to get it.

That always puts a smile on my face. It tells you the one thing you really need to know, and it does it quickly and cheerfully. (And no, I have no idea why I find that particular phrasing so cute.)

It's the little things that make the day brighter.

  1. I'll be borrowing that phrasing. Unless you've copyrighted it, in which case I'll be pirating it.

  2. I didn't write it, so I don't think I can complain if you borrow it, too!

  3. I think the more traditional phrasing is "type help if you need it"
