Oh, I quite agree, Berk! The thing is, there are so
many kinds of tech writing that needs to be done, that
you can't have a cookie-cutter writer who can do them

I wasn't seeing my comments about my approach to tw as
being "better" in any way, merely stating that this is
*my* approach. It gets me the jobs I want to do.

Your skill is in programming; mine is in being a
ferret. This is not to say that you are not good at
asking questions, nor that I can't read a program if
pushed (I can). It's more a matter of interests,
personal style, and inclination - and you can't argue
with Gus about which is better; there are times when
each of us is the right writer for a given project.
