Toolbook Knowledge Nuggets - what is it?

Toolbook Knowledge Nuggets is a program which lets you read everything that's ever been said about authoring & programming Toolbook. It contains:

bulletInternet Usenet Discussion Forum (Listserv) 1994-1999 plus
bulletThe official tech support Forum from Compuserve 1992-1996 which then became
bulletThe internet based Asymetrix hosted public discussion newsgroup, 1997-1999.

         "Toolbook Knowledge Nuggets" at work looking up
            a few words, and then later browsing freely.


bulletOffline browsing of all Toolbook discussion groups (databases supplied)
bulletFully indexed text searching
bulletAs well as being able to search, you can simply browse archives and check out what people are talking about this, or any month.
bulletThe central focus in the "Toolbook Knowledge Nugget Reader" is the 'discussion' viz. individual contributions to a subject under discussion are always combined into a single long article. It reads like a story.
bulletEdit the discussion text 'article' - then save as a HTML or Rich Text format for future reference. Print the edited document from your browser. Even add a graphic and send in the 'tip' / discussion to our online Tips Magazine.
bulletSort your search hits by date, subject and by number of people contributing to a discussion. For example, you could sort the search results and find out what the longest discussions were all about. Some discussion have over 30 contributors!
bulletWith a single click of a button, you can instantly view any discussion in your browser (Explorer or Netscape). The exported HTML file has hyperlinks and a table of contents at the top.
bulletYou can search individual years e.g. just look in 1998 for everything to do with ActiveX - the discussion databases (available for download) are broken up by year.

Can you afford not to have it?

The solution to all your technical Toolbook problems are probably in this knowledge base - it is huge. I call it 'independent' since it is not edited or put out by Asymetrix - it is the sum total of the questions people have asked and the replies they get (and don't get) in all the online Toolbook discussion forums.  And it's in your hand, in on place - ready for action.

If it saves you a few hours (or days!) of stuffing around - trying to solve some obscure Toolbook authoring problem - then it's worth it - wouldn't you say?
