"end of the year"! You're lucky! I regularly get CCed on e-mails saying
"Please send us the documentation for <x>" where <x> is some customer
project I've never heard of, and the documentation is something I just
started working on.

So I'm working on that documentation, plus trying to clean up the
existing documentation that was done by non-techwriters who had only a
vague understanding of <y>, where <y> is anything remotely related to
tech writing.

Working at a startup is fun. *Fun*, I tell you, *FUN*! Don't *put* me in
that white jacket... The bugs! The bugs!
