I love the change of seasons, except maybe for the allergies. Itâs
invigorating, and that helps, because weâre into the busiest time of the
year for TechWhirl and need all the energy we can get. Upcoming
conferences, TechWhirl Fast 5 chats, our annual Halloween fiction (or not
so fictional) festival, plus the usual assortment of stimulating features
and hearty debates. So before we finish packing and head off to Portland,
hereâs a brief reminder of all the cool stuff on TechWhirl this week.

If you missed this weekâs TechWhirl Fast 5:Hitchhikers Guide to XML
you can catch up with the YouTube recording and live session notes. If
youâre looking for answers to some of the more obscure features (?) of
Word, time to check out the email discussion list
<> and
community forum
<>. Weâve
got several threads on Word weirdness plus some other worthwhile
conversations to take part in. And the October poll question is now
published for your voting and debating pleasure.

Remember, the Adobe 2014 Tech Comm survey is open Take a few minutes to answer the questions
and influence the direction of the TCS suite.

One final reminder, next Friday (October 17) is the deadline for
submissions to the 2014 Tech Comm Halloween Horror Festival.

Have a great weekend!
