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.
"Here's the User Guide, with everything in it, but here
are also several of the chapters, separated out, with
frontmatter (title pages, boiler-plate, ToCs, etc.) added,
and each with its own Bill of Materials number that must be
tracked, and each with the same content (if the techwriter
did his job) as the chapters, but needing to be separately
reviewed by our PV/QC people, and the extra costs passed on
to you, and together they make a jumble of files on the CD,
so we had to create a map to help you navigate them all, and
the extra cost passed on to you"...? Like that, you mean?
