The other day my Macintosh G4 would not boot-up.

Jolly lucky I had another Macintosh so I could read
the documentation!

This . . . why . . . I . . . love . . . my . . .
slide-rule . . . and . . . printed . . . manuals :)

And, oddly enough, although I have all the printed
manuals for my BBC Master Micro it has never yet
either crashed or refused to start up: 20 years and
counting! Mind you that might be because its OS is
stored on a chip, it has no hard-disk and 96 KB RAM.

It is also why I believe that as computers (unless you
buy manky, old Pentium 3s - like I do) cost a lot it
would be nice if they came with printed manuals.

love, Richmond
