  • Ignoring this rule, and Commandment VI. can result in a system crash, and loss of your document.

  • If you are connected to several printers, be sure that you are sending the document to the correct printer.


VII. Thou shall not quit your work without saving it

Memo:

Please Save me!!!!!!!!!!


VIII. Thou shall not answer or press <Y> too quickly

  • Real the screen before you press <ENTER>.

  • Know what will happen if you press <Y>
