Hi all,

I'm an aspiring tech writer and am trying to put together an impressive
portfolio. I'm attempting to find an answer to the eternal problem of
getting experience without having experience. So far the main technical
writing project that I've done is for a user guide for an HTML editor. I've
put it on my web site at www.primeimpression.com/htmlkit.html.

I'm looking for a source (on-line or otherwise) for technical writing
(software) projects that will allow me to show a prospective employer that
I'm capable of assimilating and presenting complex information. These could
be inadequate white papers, manuals, or just software without documentation.

Any ideas or tales of personal experiences would be greatly appreciated!
