This is why I post under a pseudonym. Searches on my real name don't bring
up ANY of these posts... (and there are quite a few people in the world with
my real name, although if you do qualify the search with technical writer,
the first 5 or so hits are mine, and the first 2 are to my freelance web
page, so that's good, I think).
