And I second that. Let's face it, we've been working in the wild west of
industries, essentially. When everyone wanted railroads crisscrossing the
U.S., it was a good time to be in the steel business. But eventually,
people started actually demanding quality (of all the nerve!) This is
nothing new. The industry's maturing.

I must say, though, I picked one *^%# -at- * of a time to decide to back off
programming and return to tech writing! I swear, I can't spend one more day
staring about several thousand lines of code in search of a comma that
should've been a semi-colon! (Yes, as a tech writer I may still be looking
at a lot of both, but if I miss the occasional differentiation, it doesn't
stop the source code from compiling!) These are the choices we make... ;-)
