Junior IxD Looking for Mentor?? Are you out there?

I've tried going through the system here to get a mentor but have found it to be unsuccessful, so I figured I'd try my luck with you all on the discussion board.

I read the board every once and a while and it seems as though there are great people here who could effectively serve as mentors so I would be so appreciative of your help and guidance - even if that meant an email once and a while.

UX guidelines for Windows Vista.

Microsoft has released preliminary (version 0.7) UX guidelines for
upcoming Windows Vista. You can get them at http://tinyurl.com/9566c

It's (obviously) unfinished and rather messy, but contains some
(blurry) illustrations and gives the general taste of things to come.

Be warned that what you'll get is a .exe file that uncompresses to a
local set of HTML pages. Also, you can't even download it from
anything else than a genuine Windows system. I've copy-pasted the

Communicating Design, Visualizing non-linear task flow

Here is a question for you all.

I am exploring ways of using task flow diagrams as a means of conveying, in
an abstract manner, a recursive and interative user task flow that is not
linear - meaning the user is presented with a screen/canvas where their are
n number of dimensions/facets with attributes that a user can assign to some
artifact(x) to generate a new custom artifact (y).
How would you do it?

As an example - how would you visually communicate the user interaction with
the FaceYourManga flash application where you are building a custom avatar?
