Maybe I'll be out of line here with this view, but I suspect not: I'm also
a newspaper columnist. If I ever did that, I would be a "former newspaper
columnist." To take manuals and/or documentation into a job interview and
pass them as yours . . . . . isn't that stealing?

However, the usual disclaimers apply: "Your results may vary, please
recycle, and objects are closer in the mirror than what they appear."
