Excuses, Excuses

I’m sorry, Joe, I know I’ve been delinquent with the updates lately, but my latest incarnation as a professional technical writer has been making it very hard for me to come home and type some more. Or at least type anything I have to think about first. I don't think I’ve mentioned it to anyone, but for the last two months or so at work I’ve been editing, writing, and typesetting a manual for a pretty elaborate piece of software for publishing directories and yellow pages. It's difficult, to say the least, when only part of the package has a GUI, and the GUI it has needs help. The rest of the system tends to skip the "G" and often dismiss the the comfort level of the "U". so, at 230 pages and counting, I’m trying to minimize the chaos and actually explain what's going on. Of course, I’m trying to learn the damn stuff at the same time, which keeps causing minor delays. Sigh...

So that’s starting to sap my energy, but at least it keeps me from griping too much about the latest round of unsuccessful attempts to capture the interest of interesting guys.
