    Hi,

     

    I need your help!

     

    I am currently studying for a masters in software engineering, and I am investigating the ideal features for a computerised cookbook.

     

    I need people who regularly cook and use recipes and cookbooks to help complete a very short questionnaire regarding how you use recipes/cookbooks.

     

    The questionnaire has 10 questions (no personal questions and is completely anonymous), and should only take you a couple of minutes to complete.

     

    Your participation is really appreciated.

    Thank you for your time,

    Richard.

    Dear Kuan and Hatch,

    Many thanks for your time and support – actually, from your comments I would very much value your views if you had 5 minutes to also review the questionnaire.

    Hatch - I have exceeded my daily allotment of private email - I would like to response to your 'Recipes in the Cloud' post privately - I will do so tomorrow. Thanks again for your comments!

    Kind regards,

    Richard

    I took the quiz. As my answers indicate, and as my Recipes in the Cloud thread shows, I find plain text a superior system to extra software overhead. Too limiting in the computer world.

    I'm not one of those who follows recipes so really none of it applied to me.

    Your Help needed! - Thanks to all those who have completed the questionaire. If you have not taken part, it would be great to get some more of your thoughts, only 10 questions (no personal questions and is completely anonymous), and will take you 2 minutes to complete. - Your participation is really appreciated. - Richard.
