TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
My ex-husband works for one of the companies that installs those towel
roller devices in restrooms. You'd be REALLY surprised at the number of

stupidity out there!
Enjoy your Friday, gang.
In hearing, there is wisdom. In speaking, repentance.
