TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.

The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
>>>What does your group do? Software product documentation?
Marketing/promotional material? Other? Is your web work presented on an
intranet, on the public Internet, or displayed locally to the user's own
system? Are all these users on Windows, or are other platforms involved?<<<
Ah, hell! What does it matter? This is "use it or lose it money", which
means more comes later. :) Be a kid in a candy shop! Get the software and
hardware you only wish you could have! I sent my recommendations off-list,
but some items included other software they don't already have, scanners,
digital cameras, new ergonomic/state-of-the-art input devices, zip drives,
etc. I think if I was told "Bill, we're sorry to say that you have several
thousand dollars to use up by Friday" I'd be going nuts on all the
hardware/software I think I'd ever want to use (that I don't already have).
Now if you need to JUSTIFY the purchase, well, that's a bit tougher. ;)
