When I was being interviewed, I was asked about my background in web-database development. I have several years of experience in this.

The question was, would I mind lending a hand in this area should they need it. My answer was, of course not. I'd be glad to help. Which is true.

This got me thinking. How many technical writers out there find themselves doing other things, say on a temporary basis? By other things, let's say, "other duties as assigned."
