Still chugging away in DITA-writing mode; still having fun in terms of the intellectual underpinnings….

….But at times, the sad state of DITA tool implementation gets to me; I wish the tools were ‘transparent’ and allowed me to focus on content, but often they get in the way with interaction design right out of the 1980s. For example, this popup in our Content Management System as been a thorn in my side recently (C’mon, everyone hates popups, and I know I made a change; you don’t need to tell me! Especially when you don’t offer an ‘undo’ function, and when you popup silently in multiple windows, forcing me to hunt through them all till I can resume my work…):
