Greetings from a Sunny and Warmer Salt Lake City

I've had a "permanent" job for almost 7 years now, an all-time record for
me. I write service manuals for medical X-ray equipment. Prior to my
current position, I worked permanent and contract jobs, writing service
manuals for computers, airplanes, microwave gear, and other medical devices.
Since nothing lasts forever, I am wondering what the current market is like
for a hardware writer like myself. I prefer shorter-term contracts (under a
year) if there is such a thing any more.

What say ye? I will summarize for the list.
