Hi Dave,

Yea I scanned them and returned them like you made me promise to. I've got them in a program that is for converting the scans into text documents. It got to be a bit too much work for what I had time for. The files are quite large and I was hoping to convert them for space, legibility and the ability to search the text for keywords.

What manuals have you got? What more could you need?
