The Hall of Technical Documentation Weirdness

Internet old timers might recall the Hall of Technical Documentation Weirdness, in which Darren Barefoot posted technical writing and pictures that made your head hurt. Someone explained this to me once: the least competent person on any project is assigned to write the manual because he's not contributing much to the actual project. Other examples are due to lack of language fluency or an obligation to be overly explicit (like the above example). Anyway, the website went defunct in 2008. But Barefoot is now resurrecting it by posting the archives on Pinterest. The archive is not yet complete, and submissions are welcome. Link  -via Boing Boing
