My husband and I have been raising poultry for several years. One evening while we were at the hatchery to get a batch of chicks, a neighbor phoned, wanting to speak to my husband. He was left speechless when my daughter, five-year-old Brittany, told him that her dad couldn't come to the phone because he was in town picking up chicks.

A customer called Compaq tech support to say her brand-new computer wouldn't work. She said she unpacked the unit, plugged it in and sat there for 20 minutes waiting for something to happen.

When asked what happened when she pressed the power switch, she asked, "What power switch?"

This small not-for-profit organization is looking for ways to cut costs, and one obvious solution is to make all the research it produces available on a Web site, says a technician working there.

"That will wean subscribers away from bound reports, which are expensive to print and mail," he says.

"A big selling point is that this makes all the latest information immediately accessible, rather than subscribers having to wait for the report to be updated and printed every several years."

"Another advantage is that subscriber companies could make the information available to more people in the organization."

Everybody wins. What could go wrong?

Electronic versions of the reports are uploaded. Then a slick, full-color brochure is designed and printed, touting the benefits of using the Web site.

"After the marketing piece is distributed, it is proudly displayed at a staff meeting," says the technician.

"Only one problem -- no one bothered to let the editors look over the brochure before it was approved for printing."

"We immediately noticed that the Web address appeared nowhere in the entire brochure."

My husband, who uses a wheelchair, showed up at his eye doctor's for an appointment.

The receptionist checked the schedule, then said: "The nurse will call you in a moment. Have a seat."

He smiled: "Done."
