Grind manuals and pour water on them.

To save on paper, print instruction manuals for complicated electrical appliances on super strong coffee paper. That way you can brew up a nice pot of coffee whilst you figure out how the damn thing works.

Coffee paper
Needs to be stronger at just 5% coffee bean content but it's a start. [theleopard, Sep 07 2007]

I don't read manuals. I mean, where's the fun in that?

Further on't, you can still read the manuals - if you were so inclined.

I keep all my manuals. Sometimes for longer than I have the item itself.

heh, I like this. I hate manuals. +

Although the evidence sits gravely against me [k_sra] I didnae know about the recent flood of grind : pour ideas. Seeing it at the 'add' page just seemed to fit.

[xandram], everyone does.
Apart from [G_C].
And [Dentworth], of course.

And somebody else...

Secret UberGeek Tip: Read the manuals. People will think you have super powers when you show them how to perform amazing tasks on their equipment.

i do not blame you for the spate of grind : pours, [theleopard], i was merely creating a little merry-go-round for myself that i could swing about on from idea to idea, all in the grind : pour family. try it. it's fun! : )

i don't drink coffee and i do keep manuals (although i never read them). also, i don't like anyone's hands touching my beverages before i drink it. although i'm sure this would be delicious with a milky bun, i must proffer the fish. (-)

it's a punch in the gut when you finally get it, huh? ; )
-- k_sra, Sep 07 2007

(-) meh, one-joke post. Maybe if you printed the manuals on filter paper, you could at least somehow use it to brew something.

so true [jutta], but I think our basic hatred for manuals let us overlook that part. If the words were spelled out in grains of coffee, that could help, too.

My employer recently purchased some complex new technology. The supplier offered a brief introductory training course, and from there out expects you to call the tech support guy whenever you have a question.

I asked them for the full documentation referenced in the abbreviated training manual.

"Oh, we haven't updated that in five years". " Just click on Help".

I'm never buying anything major again without reviewing the status of the documentation beforehand. Bastards. I think I need a cup of coffee.

That is exactly, exactly, my point.
