Looking forward to a long weekend of packing, toting, lugging, and tossing?
Me too. In between boxing up dishes and marking stuff to donate, I should
able to find time to check in on TechWhirl to see who’s talking about what
we published this week.

If you’re not packing up stuff for a move or a vacation (or unpacking for
that matter), take a break and check out the new poll, user guide template
and Tech Writer This Week. Lots of free time on your hands? Contact us to
fill up some of that free time with writing for TechWhirl as a member of
the Special Writers Unit<>
. To get in touch, just drop us a note <> and
let us know what kinds of topics you’re most interested. And don’t forget
to stop by the email discussion list <> for helpful,
interesting, and occasionally cantankerous viewpoints on all things tech

Now where did I put the Styrofoam® peanuts?

Have a great weekend!
