James, it's time for me to raise my hand. I seldom get to write on
software, or even for computer-related items, for that matter.

My company makes electical/electonic connectors, and most of
my time involves documenting the tooling used to apply the
connectors. Everything from simple hand tools to room-sized
monsters that produce complex cable assemblies.

I guess that the internet medium attracts more computer writers
than not, so we're probably in the minority...
