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.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. 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.
>>Where do you keep your paper documents once they have
been signed-off on? Do you keep them in a file at
your desk? If not, what location do you keep your
paper docs in?
Nobody ever signs off on my documents. They use them, or don't use them, I
often don't know which.
>How many of you use a standard locked file cabinet, or
a reinforced lock outside of the cabinet?
I work for a digital media security company. This means that nothing is
under lock-and-key. It would take 2 seconds to break through the front
>What sort of procedure do you use for the signing out
Sign out? I leave draft papers on a company intranet site, and hope that
someone tells me when they use them.
>For those of you who store documents electronically,
which method works best for you? Do you use any sort
of version control?
We use VSS for storing documents electronically, and for version control.
