Morning Tara;

I am on digest mode, so I am behind a day.
Yesterday (and today), I am working on:

- completing updates to a redesign of our
corporate public web.
- writing the testing document for the same site
explaining to a novice how to test and to the
redesign lead on how to log test issues and
manage the tweaking efforts over the next week.
- updating the current public web for new job
- updating the intranet for new employees and
- creating a new section of the intranet with all
our Process Asset Library content and cross
linking hundreds of documents in it.
- drafting and sending out a brief 10 question
survey for a Gov agency training session.
- editing 1 corporate process document and 2
contract documents.
- Training 3 corporate staff to use SourceSafe
for documentation one-on-one.
- 2 meetings (1 hour each)
- read meeting minutes for meetings not able to
attend (3)
- providing writing samples to Proposal dev
people for a new contract (non key position, so
we'll be able to hire someone else to actually do
- corresponding with just hired employee with
needed information about new contract.
- reviewing current corporate drive content and
plan migration to SourceSafe providing document
to all HQ staff.
- format 1 of 15 documents reviewing content for
ISO 9001:2000 activities (relates to PAL updates

Whew... I think I don't make enough! lol

I also have plans to rewrite the corporate
employee handbook working with HR and continue to
make updates to most of the items above over the
next week.


Also, I'm a help specialist, and FYI RoboHelp
isn't going to be sold anymore in the near
future, I am looking into the new company run by
the ex-RoboHelp people... (sorry can't think of
the name at the moment, but look online, you'll
find it). As a reason to spend money on a help
system? Try the "we can single source using the
help system as the basis. It will save time and
$ - this, of course, assumes that you have good
products and write helpful help!

Thought it would be interesting to find out what
everyone is working on as far as types of
projects during what is sometimes the busiest
time of
year for tech writers ("tell the tech writer we
need it by end of year!").

Generally, I am focusing on an IT Report,
Software Development Artifacts, a Manual of Style

update, and I'm still trying to get 'them' to
