Re: FLOS manuals

if he can help me get them into .pdf I can convert to .txt or .rtf, probably use the latter for the translatability of it.

Your efforts are appreciated. While certainly better than nothing, I do hope that the manuals can be made available in a better format than PDF. I recall particular interest was expressed in HTML.

So far I got it to a PDF and seeing if I can convert that to doc. So
even as a PDF it shouldn't be long now before we get them back to the
list for viewing.

Elf reported to the list that the 40 or so files were in a Macintosh

tool that would enable him to open the files, but no one knew of a
Windows-based one that could definately do the job.

Can't you post the collection in a zip archive somewhere (DreamHost,
SendSpace, or whatever)?

I think Susan did a handoff to Mr. Elf a couple of weeks ago.

I've been covered in tar and feathers volunteering on the clean-up in
Alabama all week so this effort hasn't even crossed my mind in the
slightest.

PS: Please call me to discuss the things I left on your voice mail
last week.
