I have been busily packing up my life into boxes in preparation for placing them into storage before I head overseas for a few months sabbatical. Inevitably, I packed something I now needed, the manual to the washing machine so I could check how to drain it properly. I had no clue which of the 20 or so sealed boxes it was in and certainly didn’t want to open them all to find it.
I turned to Google to try to find the manual, with no success. I then checked the website for NEC, the brand of washing machine I own and discovered that they no longer made washing machines. The signs were not looking good. In the footer of the site, I noticed they had prominent links to their twitter, youtube and flickr pages. So, I decided to turn to twitter, but did not hold out much hope.
