Look on the bright side: If engineers who didn't like to write were doing the
user manuals, think how much larger the third party market would be! <G>

It's been my experience that most engineers didn't like to write and were more
than willing to provide me with the infomation I needed. They wanted to get
back to REAL engineering.
