In case of scheduling conflicts, I have a Magic 8-Ball on my desk. I
tell users to consult the oracle.

The only problem is the hardware engineers, who insist on rolling their
12 sided dice instead.

Answer hazy, try again.

How do you receive requests for your writing services? Does someone just
drop by your desk, ask for help and you decide if you have time? Does
your manager assign you to a project or a specific task? Is there a
formal request (memo, database entry) that outlines what they need you
to do?
