ANNOUNCE: TECHWR-L Site Redesign and Reorganization

**Breaking News from Behind the Scenes at TECHWR-L** <g>

Since January 2002, we've been feverishly working on a
TECHWR-L site redesign and reorganization, and we're
pleased to announce that the new site is now available:

http://www.raycomm.com/techwhirl/index.html

Highlights of the new site include
* A new, fresher look
* A new structure and keywords to aid browsing
* New navigation aids
* Article summaries
* A new MySQL site search application, called
Mnogosearch
* Detailed (or fixed!) meta tag keywords
and descriptions

You'll also find links to the new TECHWR-L Store, which
offers TECHWR-L T-shirts, mugs, mousepads, and more!
All proceeds go toward supporting TECHWR-L.

You can find out more about the site changes in the
March issue of _The Whirler_ at

We're still tidying up details across the site, but
please do visit, browse around, and send comments,
suggestions, and problems you encounter to me at

Thanks!
Deborah

STORY: Dan the Tech Writer and his support group

Hello, my name is Dan, and I'm a technical writer.

Hello, Dan, the support group chorused.

I've been addicted to technical writing for some time now. First, I
started small, with little contract projects here and there . . .
before I knew it, I had a full time job for a software company. I was
just churning out documentation . . .

I knew there was no turning back when I joined the TECHWR-L discussion
list. I enjoyed debating about one or two spaces after the period,
identified with the Deer in Headlights Syndrome, and even spent a lot
of time discussing whether or not I was a writer and if I was indeed
an artist.

Dan cleared his throat and shook his head.

I thought it couldn't get any worse -- then SnagIt came into my life.

The group members nodded their encouragement.

I don't know how I ever accomplished anything before SnagIt! It's
such a time saver - with profiles, I created and stored my most
frequently used settings so I didn't have to constantly change my
configuration. Then with multiple outputs, I could simultaneously
send my capture to as many outputs as I wanted. And, SnagIt offers
more input and output options than any other screen capture program
--input an object, web, text, video, direct x, graphical or program
file!

Not only that, but in SnagIt Studio I added annotation like text, arrows
and clipart, and in the Catalog I easily selected multiple files to save,
convert, print and e-mail in batches!

Dan, spent, flopped into his chair.

A member turned to him and whispered desperately, Is SnagIt really as good
as you say?

Dan nodded weakly. He looked around him and realized that he hadn't
helped at all - every support group member was itching to get to a
computer to download SnagIt.

Inwardly, he smiled. At least if he couldn't help them, he'd enjoy
the company in the SnagIt online forum.

About posting ads:
Announcements on the TECHWR-L Premium Announcement posting
cost $50 to contact over 5100 TECHWR-L subscribers
directly each day for a week.

In an effort to provide a free service that allows you to post
announcements, jobs, and events, however, we have established other
services:

The TECHWR-L Calendar provides a free resource for you
to post announcements, activities, and events:
http://www.raycomm.com/techwhirl/calendar/

The TECHWR-L Employment Central provides a free resource
for you to post, browse, and search job listings and personal
profiles:
http://www.raycomm.com/techwhirl/employment/

The TECHWR-L Daily Summary Mailing, a separate mailing list
that summarizes new content posted to Employment Central and
the Calendar, can further help get your
message out to interested people:
http://www.raycomm.com/techwhirl/daily-announce-info.html

These resources are available at no cost to anyone, posters
or seekers, TECHWR-L subscribers or not. We encourage you to
regularly use these free services.

For jobs, announcements, and events that you specifically
want to be mailed directly to all 5100+ TECHWR-L subscribers
in the TECHWR-L Premium Daily Announcement, please contact Eric
(ejray -at- raycomm -dot- com) or submit your paid ad at
