Hey Fish. The price list won't import because the CD is blank
well B200 will send you the original, and you figure it out and send it back to me.
And hopefully tell me how to open it.
Did the mediacat at least work???
Me. PM address please. I lost it in the pile.....
I'm no whiz on computers either, but you can bet I'm getting it to open, even if I have to decode the binary by hand.....
If someone sends me one, and I can get it to open, I'll see what I can do as far as "printing" the whole thing to one giant .pdf file.
If I can get that to work, I have a copy of Acrobat writer, and could seperate the manuals/IPLs into seperate pdf files...
Firebox, I think you are my first recip when I get it. Sounds like you know whats what! I'll be in touch
Awesome... hopefully I can make something open it up, the F.I.L. has an ancient computer that might do the trick. I'm kinda scared to think of how big the full .pdf will be, hopefully it's small enough to fit on one DVD.
Edit: looks like Brad's got me taken care of.
I've got cjcocn and firebox.
Post up when you get it all unlocked. I was going to do the same thing, but probably would use a longer way (although I wouldn't be decoding by hand ).
If you're going to do it, there is no point in me trying to figure it out!
In Other News ......
I guess I get the next two that post up in this thread.
well.. about 90% of it is aready in PDF on another cd in circulation
That's so backwards I'm speechless:greenchainsaw:
One (of dozens) for the PC is called "cutepdfwriter". O.K., the mac is a second class citizen and just a cute pretender to the throne, but surely there at least 5 for the mac....???? opcorn:
Well hell, why aren't we all passing around THAT CD then? :greenchainsaw:
heck, it's gone around about 18 times already, and has been sold on bay for years.
Well, I don't intend to sell it on ebay (I'm not that greedy, nor do I care to receive nastygrams from Stihl's legal dept.), but I'd prefer not to duplicate the effort to do the same thing. Of course, if this one is newer, has more material, or has the price list so I could quit heckling my dealer with prices on a hundred part numbers, that would make it all worthwhile.
Oh well, no harm in checking it out, at worst there'll be another version out there for free.
It doesn't contain the price list. That's just a separate file that can be imported, or.. if you prefer... displayed in excel. Heck, Stihl even sends it out in PDF each year as part of the dealer support manual CD. Hard to believe that not one of the 8000 dealers employees hasn't spirited a copy
If you happen to be the one that has, I can PM you my e-mail address
Ha.,, not me... but there are 7999 others to try.
Hold yer horses there cowboy. Wait and see what you get on the chain letter before you start looking for anything else. You would probably be better off PMing the email addy to me. Kinda puts Lake in a bad position, being a dealer and all.
Dealer? just a meer employee... Like Fish, but better looking.
Run a copy? Hell most I know throw that list away as soon as it arrives. Funny part, the file is small enough that it could almost be e-mailed...
Separate names with a comma.
