Yup, no longer do you get wonderful hard-copy manuals when you purchase IBM Rational software.
Printed manuals are SO last century.... out-dated from the moment they are printed. They did look ever so nice on my bookshelf, however.
Now we have InfoCenters. All the information you knew and loved in your manuals is available on-line.
"ButbutbutBUT," you say, "what if I want something to carry into the server room with me?"
You can create PDF files and print out your own copies. Click on the link above (to the ClearCase 7.1 Infocenter) and scroll down to the bottom.
Under the Help System Overview section are links for creating your own PDFs or printing out topics. (If I can ever figure out why my screenshots are broken, I'll update this post with them.)
Hope this helps.

Last night I attended the Super Women's Group panel discussion and reception and took a few notes to share. Before I get started, I am thrilled to say that it was standing room only. (The fire marshal had to turn people away.) It shows the growing number of women doing technology jobs and also the effectiveness of our marketing. Next year, we are getting a ballroom, ladies! Also, this advice can apply to any career and is relevant to all my followers.

(editorial note: This blog post first appeared on my personal blog, Kellypuffs, but it is relevant for this audience as well, with a few minor tweaks. So here you are!
I love this poster. There is a high-res PDF version available if you click through, and I recommend it. Lots of wisdom here. It particularly resonates with me as it pertains to knowledge.
Kids, remember back when….
If you are “of a certain age”, you know what I’m talking about, and we are probably the last generation that will.
If you aren’t, you have no freaking CLUE what I’m talking about because you are a Child of t’Internets and you are free to know and grow. (cue hippy music). The internet, if you are lucky enough to have access to it and a way to view it, provides 24/7 access to an unfathomable amount of knowledge, anytime, anywhere.
Let that sink in, people. Anytime. Anywhere.
Better yet, t’internets has led to the democratization of knowledge …. one person, one voice. Or rather, many more voices, many more people contributing to our collective knowledge.
Need the original schematic/wiring diagram for a 1940s desk phone? It’s out there. Need to know why your bilateral destabilizer keeps shutting down? Someone else has probably experienced it and shared on a forum.
And here’s where I start getting all hippy-dippy, waving daisies, love and sunshine, because to me, this is just the coolest thing EVER. Ever. You can’t put this genie back in the bottle. Knowledge is no longer in the hands of a privileged few to be doled out to the worthy. Knowledge is being openly shared and recorded, so that others may benefit.
Maybe THIS is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius?
