One gig I had, my manager told the IS people I was a Help Systems Programmer so
they wouldn't argue about giving me the equipment I needed to document ( did
both online and hard copy) the application. If he'd told them I was a tech
writer, they'd have insisted on giving me a POS machine with WordPerfect for DOS
(and this was in '95!) instead of the NT Workstation with all the necessary
software (as in Word and RoboHelp).

Worked for me!
