Been one for decades. That's why I'm a good tech writer. :-) I also know specs are often a "we think this is what we're going to implement" document that usually gets written before real design & coding starts, and seldom gets updated afterward. Reality & VPs being what they are, there are usually some changes that happen in the meantime, so a writer should get down & dirty with the product to see what it really does. What was that you said about digressing?? :-) > Actually, you left out part of my post. Remember what I said about > the VP's coming down and asking for all those new features by next > week ? Guess what gets sacrificed first when you try to do 3 weeks > of work in 3 days ? :-) You can have it fast, or you can have it right. Can't have both. Gary
