tourist information
Jump to user comments
Information in an on-line display that is not immediately
useful, but contributes to a viewer's gestalt of what's going
on with the software or hardware behind it. Whether a given
piece of info falls in this category depends partly on what
the user is looking for at any given time. The "bytes free"
information at the bottom of an MS-DOS "dir" display is
tourist information; so (most of the time) is the TIME
information in a Unix "ps(1)" display.
