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.
Well, having done a more complete audience analysis, :) I realized that I
neglected a large portion of the techwriting community audience with my
method (my original audience was me). Therefore, I added a section on
creating a virtually identical effect with Paint Shop Pro 5. I added a BMP
to work with the PSP version and put it in a ZIP file with the PDF. It is
now 158K and available at: http://home.earthlink.net/~jwynia/ripped.zip
I've removed the previous version.
Note: I did this more as a challenge to see if I could do it with a limited
toolbase than anything else. I just figured since there was interest, I'd
give out my notes.
