Hi to all!

I'm a technical writer in a small IT firm in the Philippines. I'd like to
broaden my skills with some online training (the company I work for may not
have the budget for tech writing books). Would you guys be able to suggest
some good sites aside from the excellent TECHWR-L site?

Your help would be most appreciated.

Thanks so much!
