I think you went fishing again and caught few. Who are you trying to kid
when you say, "Can't you just write the manual? I mean - how frickin' hard
is it to write a manual. I'm a moron and I do it all the time." Are you
trying to tell us you don't use any kind of process when you write a manual?
I think not. You wouldn't be where you are today owning your own business
if you weren't using a well planned and tested process for doing your work.
So, what is it? Are you willing to tell us?
