When I start to feel a cold coming on, the last thing I want to do is spend time and energy trying to figure out the best treatment approach. I am seeking a guide that will help me identify and self-treat common/mild illnesses (both attacking the root cause and alleviating symptoms) as well as indicate when it would be wise to see a doctor. I would prefer a printout rather than an interactive tool like WebMD.

I need to draw some process diagrams in Adobe Illustrator, and my Google-fu is failing me! I need to have a circular flow to the main part of the diagram, with a couple of additional arrows (think something like these diagrams: one
). There must be a simple way to do this! [more inside]

In my lab I was hired in part so as to have a native speaker of English on hand to improve the general knowledge of the language if only by osmosis. So, deciding to take my duties seriously, the other day I drew the Oh Snap Flowchart
on the whiteboard of our break-room where it was a big hit, what other amusing flowcharts are there floating around the internet that I could use to explain any of the various oddities of the English language? [more inside]

Joe goes to webpage. He answers a few A-or-B questions. After Joe answers the last question, the page shows him which product he should buy.
a) What do I call this decision-making tool?
b) Where do I learn how to make it?

I need to learn more about making effective diagrams to communicate complex design ideas to coworkers. What are your resources for information design for representing systems, rather than raw data/statistics? [more inside]

I (think I) am capable with HTML and CSS, but I've been asked to create an interactive, flowchart-based website and I'm not sure where to turn. (Similar to the specs described here
- No one answered this question.) --- What do I need to learn to make this happen? Any tips or suggestions would be welcome. [more inside]

What is the advantage of making a flow chart in Visio instead of Excel? I haven't played with Visio much yet, but I'm not seeing anything that's significantly better or easier.

For a friends birthday I want to make a wall chart showing which (non-classical) musicians and bands influenced other ones. E.g. Beatles -> Oasis, Neil Young -> Nirvana. [more inside]

What's a good, open source alternative to Visio? I'm looking to do some flowcharts, absolutely hate working with the draw tools in Word, and need something fairly simple, easy to use. Prefer not to use web based, don't like trusting data to third parties.

Is there a good website for making flow charts
or concept maps
or cognitive maps
in groups? A group of my students and I will be making a website together, and I am hoping to find a free or low-cost way for all of us to make such a chart together online. This would be to show how all of the sections of the website relate to each other. Any thoughts or experiences with such services would be most appreciated.

I am looking for a leadership tool I used to use back in the late nineties, but can't find anymore. It was a flowchart intended to help a person determine which decisionmaking style to use in a particular set of circumstances. Essentially it takes the D1-D5 framework (where D1 is highly directive and D5 is highly collaborative), and sets up a flowchart process that helps the person determine which to use. So for example it would ask “Will other people be affected by the decision” (yes argues for collaboration) and “Will other people's acceptance of the decision be required for implementation” (yes argues for collaboration).

What's a cool way of doing a business flowchart? You know, one that traces the flow of transactions through the various departments of the business? Preferably something that is not too complicated nor requiring a great eye for design.

I'm looking for a CMS for a small, online newspaper. I'm not necessarily looking for the front-end, I'm looking for something that can manage the back-end, or admin of the newspaper. [more inside]

Several years ago, I had a photocopy of a cartoon entitled "Why the Neanderthals Became Extinct". There were two Neanderthals, one saying "I don't know, it just seemed easier when we went hunting" and the other one replying "Yes, but Og assures us this will keep us ahead of those Cro-Magnons in the valley". The rest of the cartoon was an insanely complicated hunting plan, with boxes and arrows and stages like "Hunt Readyness Review". I've been looking for a copy of this cartoon for years now. I don't suppose anybody knows what the hell I'm talking about?
