There are plenty of part-time assignment
possibilities. You just have to know where to look for
them. ;)

I don't have all that much free time these days, but I
do occasionally take on small jobs, such as template
construction, tool training, or project
troubleshooting (mostly RoboHelp and WebWorks

I don't do it for the added cash as much as I do it to
help keep my skills sharp. Personally, I like my
nights and weekends, and try to enjoy as many of them
as possible. But the occasional techcomm odd job is
nice every now and then.
