AND, I might point out that Technical Writers write other than software and
computer related materials. I get the feeling from this group that some think

Writing about dies for making wire, maintenance of pumps, instruction manuals
for motorcycle assembly and other seemingly mundane topics are also things
technical writers write about.

As a freelancer, I can tell you that the technical writing most people here
seem to do is a very small part of the technical writing whole.
