Designing for change (was: JOB: Interaction designer for GoDaddy.com)

Schwab.com has done a pretty good job of managing change on their site. They
announced the pending change on the "positions" page months before they made the
change, complete with a link to see the new page (not a screen shot, but an
actual page with your stocks). Now, months after the change, they still have a
link back to the old page.

Shared elements in Visio across files

Hi there,

I can't figure out how to share a background across multiple files
in Visio. Our team is using a source control program so we want to
have each wireframe in it's own Visio file. I want to have the
template background in another file, but if I update the background,
I don't want to have to go change every page. It's like a server
side include, or "instance"

Any ideas?
