I have done this most of the time for several years now. But there are jobs
where I must be on site for several weeks in a row.
For me it is very important to be well-known. I reach that through my
activities at tekom, our national society, articles in magazines and other
In the early 90s I was known nationally as the "crazy technical writer
operating a BBS". In the meantime my BBS, its Internet gateway and some other
activities around telecommunications have found some 200 users. I am the
of this net, but the time is not ready yet to rely mostly on this
infrastructure. But I use some kind of telecommunication for nearly every job
do. E.g. I have a customer who wants Winhelp systems. He often sends me some
paper or fax and receives the Winhelp file through ISDN Euro File Transfer.
