thats soooo weird! i also thought it was just me. i love to cook!

maybe recipes are not only tech writing, but the Source of *all* tech
writing? i think its feasible; after all, humans and other life forms are
interested in food over pretty much everything else. Recipes are
traditionally shared and must therefore reach a wide audience and also be
easily translatable.

and recipes are very old. we certainly had recipes before computers...
...formalised writing?

i guess it has to be off topic to some extent. thanks a stack for your
t-letter idea Tom, I am going to try a fresh start to employment seeking as
of now.
