and then replied:

I'm jealous....I would give anything to have our engineers take this
kind of time with my manuals! Sheesh...I can hardly get them to look
at them, much less dissect them. Does anyone else have some ideas how
to solve the problem of getting someone to proofread drafts? I'm the
only tech writer for 9 engineers and they are pumping out programs
faster than I can write....they say they don't have time. Our products
are very complex and technical computer telephony programs.
