Opinions are like butts. Everybody has one and they all produce crap. This
I don't answer tech writing questions because the grand majority of them are
pounced on by others or stupid. I mean, I could probably lecture at length
about using Paint Shop Pro or Visio - but there are manuals for that. I prefer
sounding all high and mighty, then make fun of myself.
