I have been asked by fellow DIYMA members, exactly how I created and designed my system diagram and if I would be interested in doing a tutorial for the method.
Here is my system diagram as it stands on 03/23/09:
You can also find it in my signature in any of my posts.
I have to think through exactly how to do a tutorial on this topic because the fact is I could do multiple tutorials to teach tasks that are used to create the diagram. The fact is, my diagram is very simple to put together in my opinion. Then again, I have over 15 years of graphics experience with my preferred software programs. But dont let that stop you, as I find it rather enjoyable to be able to create things like this, but at the same time it helps me think things through with my system before implementing them. So even though it is a diagram, it does help with "design" so to speak. It will take a LOT of posts on my part to walk you through the process and I almost think a video would be more efficient. But I will give it my best shot.....
