I've just been asked to write a manual to a handheld computer of some kind. I think it's a guide to the management system. I don't go looking for writing commissions but every now and then I get one via a friend. This one is supposed to be finished by the end of january, so I should be able to ask for reasonable money.
But more importantly, I get the hardware for free. I assume it has a web connection, so perhaps I'll be able to use that in future if my computer breaks again.
BTW I want to buy my son a wii - are they impossible to get though? I don't know anything about that kind of thing.
