I have been reading Alex Hughson’s thread "New user” renamed "Serial Communication with an I/O board (New user)” by Curry Kenworthy to make it easier for future users to find.
It makes me think of something that happened a few times with me. I am trying to do something in LiveCode and I come up against a blocker. I start searching the use-livecode list, the LiveCode Forums, and also general web searches. Finally I find my answer — exactly what I wanted. Then I look at the author asking the original question or answering… Martin Koob.
So I am curious — am I the only one whose mind is going or have others run this mental recursive documentation loop?
Anyway now when I am typing a question or a suggested answer I think I should put the salutation “Dear Future me.”. In any case once the problem is solved I do a final email summarizing what the final solution was and I do make sure there are some good keywords in the text that I would probably search for in the future when I have forgotten ever even working on this problem this let alone how to solve it.
