Again the collective prejudice of so many on the list rears it's ugly head.
Technical Writing = Computer software documentation

Mechanical and electrical systems have been around for ages. While many
industries relied on apprenticeship to relay repair and operation knowledge,
many technical operations and repair documents have been produced in the years
pre-computer.
Remember the days when "cut and paste" actually involved getting your fingers
sticky or when drafting tables were actually used for drafting? (If you do
you're older than I am ;), I think I read about it in a book somewhere....)
