For the last couple of weeks, I've been working with Tekan, an @WekanApp or @trello-like plugin for #TiddlyWiki. It's simple, but effective for a pair of personal projects, and for a pre-release workflow at the day job
Once upon a time, someone offered me in the region of $150 to write a 400-page manual for his software. Not $150 an hour, but $150 for the project.
