Documentation

In case you didn't already know, my paying job is Software Documentation. Yes, I write those training manuals, user manuals, and help files for software. You know those amazingly boring things you should read when using new software? I once read that Amy Tan, one of my favorite authors, had written documentation for IBM. Based on that I think I'm in pretty good company, now I just have to write an amazing novel and have it made into a movie.

A co-worker of mine found this quote:
"Documentation is like sex; when it's good, it's very good, and when it's bad, it's better than nothing." -Dick Brandon, Author

I'm not sure if he's telling me my documentation is good or bad.
