  1. Whoa. This tip is huge for me.

    Seriously, I try to download a PDF manual for everything I buy so I can just throw out the paper version. Searching for them can be a real pain.

    Thanks Swiss Miss!

  2. Ooooooo. Nice.

  3. Ha, my husband codes PDF manuals for major companies!

  4. very good tip. i´ve search before a few months, but can´t find them. thanks!

  5. Isn’t a product that needs a manual doomed to fail?

  6. No Peter,

    When nothing else helps, turn to manual / user / admin guide. Failing that jump and scream…

    I have found manuals sometimes very useful, especially on the component level (hard drives and such).

  7. Awesome! Everything I desired summarised in a very short way.
