Got any plans for the weekend that don’t involve driving, grilling, or
saying goodbye to Summer? Take a look around TechWhirl and catch up on your
reading, enter our contest to become a LavaCon 2013
vote in the current poll, download a template, enjoy a summer rerun on
eBooks, and get some tips and tricks in our newest column, The Help Files,
from our own Duct Tape Writer, Craig Cardimon.

There’s always a good debate going on over at the email discussion
particularly if, this week, you're interested in FrameMaker master pages,
the relative usefulness of tables of figures, doing multi-boots, proper use
of em and en dashes, or answering question on opening movies in windows.
Top it off with some nice curated goodness from other wonderful spots on
the web in Tech Writer This Week.

Have a great weekend!
