Multi-language manuals

I'm absolutely sick of trying to wade through multi-language manuals. Just split the damned things up! :headbang:

Right now I'm wading through a manual where I've losing the will to live having to skip around four other languages to find what I need - then trawl forward 50 pages to find the MIDI spec in English!

Strewth!

If I have to read a manual to use it I don't want it.

Damn. Was just about to send you a big 24-carat gold bar, but there's no manual. I'll have to give it to someone else now.

It really has got that bad for me, I used to go to bed with a manual or read it over breakfast, not now, the thought just makes me go crazy, literally. It has to be intuitive or I don't want to know, I think that's the attraction of anything analogue now. An analogue mixer = cool a digital mixer = instant head damage, same with everything, synths too.

I know, we've got one of those stupid Hive things, that's nearly ended up through the window many times.
