In a mail message there's context and we can add with dialogue to
clarify.  To do a piece for a wiki I'll need to be specific, include
screen shots and a lot ore detail.

I started on that and found it was so much work and had a  crash from a
power failure and ... and ... and I need to get my taxes done ... and
... I need the 'span" of time and attention.

I suppose by now I work with about 10 tabs open on snippets, templates,
pages, page parts, page views, google searches, e-books, style sheets,
web tools ... that it would be impossible to describe my approach to the
'nuts and bolts' of 'keyboarding'.  I don't know how people ever lived
without multi-taking editors ...

Indeed.  So are many other "free template" sites :-)

Documentation, somewhere, is Very, Very useful.
Keep notes on what and why you do what you do.

I just found that my template a snippet that was just a logo.
Moving it from the snippet to the template and then from the asset to
the file system really helped performance!  Note to self: remember this
when writing up the process.

Indeed!  But 'better' is a context sensitive term.
If you were running a major portal or a publishing mini-empire and had
dozens of editors and hundreds of authors then you might think differently.
