I totally agree with you John. I consider my writing (documentation or fiction) to be unfinished (despite publication) until the day I die. And maybe even not then!

Every couple of years my writing style changes. Even in just a few months, the things I've learned or read could make me question how I chose to represent an idea.

Sometimes, you can go back and change things for the better. Unfortunately, we can never go back and undo user errors and tech support.

Now...I'm not suggesting that you delete your system and start from
scratch. I do, however, now believe that everything you've ever
written needs to be reviewed periodically, and not just immediately
after it's been written. Give it a few months and then approach it
with a fresh mind.
