I hate that my first post is probably an idiot one that will follow me forever, but I have done enough research to notice that I am not alone in being taken to an irrelevant page when trying to open, for example, the Vectrix Handbook. This very topic is discussed on the "Help with using..." page under the topic "try to open handbooks,manuals etc,keep getting nyc real estate". The replies are typically witty with the most helpful being "I expect we'll be able to fix this shortly," dated 10/12/2009. With this kind of time sense, it's no wonder so many feel the Vectrix batteries are not lasting long enough. (It's just a cheap joke--my sympathies to the many suffering early adopters.)
It was unclear whether I should add a reply to the previous thread or start this new one. My sense is that the answer is "neither." In the meantime, hello everyone. Satisfied Vectrix owner here, immensely impressed with how much ground I have to cover now that I've found this terrific place. Being able to access the handbook would be a good start. Hint, hint.
