News & Notes
by Steve Giesel
Iíve been quietly
doing something since mid 2004, can you guess what that is? If you are
a regular visitor to the ETCS Website, you probably know.
I always felt like
we could do a better job of communicating timely information to our
users, but I was at a loss about how to proceed. So what Iíve done for
the last 4 years is use the ETCS Home Page as a forum for making brief,
relevant announcements to our Extension users.
place a dated announcement of one or two lines with a link to more
information about the news item. Anytime Joe Lear sends a mass email to
you, I usually duplicate his information there as well. You can also
view all the previous news items from links on that sub-page in our
Website. Predictably, I call this page, News & Notesóand itís available
from the main navigation bar in our Website.
I encourage you to bookmark the ETCS
Website if for no other reason than to keep up with current items
pertaining to Extension. Besides, that way youíll be that much closer
to the Help Desk documentation we continue to develop.
