Found a great source of manuals to explain all the nice intricacies of any mac u can think of. I expected to get these from the Apple website but found it here instead.

Ahh crap. Please don't post l

Ahh crap. Please don't post links to the serivce manuals. Every time someone does Apple has them shutdown.

Also could someone mirror them before Apple shuts them down again. I would but I am having problems with my ISP so I can't right now.

Yup, that looks like Gambas site. I think they are trying to shut it down. Shame, I don't know where else I would go to for the very important shop manuals. Can't they at least let them keep up the manuals older then the g3 or something? Embarrassed

Why should they shut it down?

Its seems stupid to just close it. Are they scared the repairers will lose money or something? If Apple doesnt provide them then people will just find out the info through other ways. Apple just being stingy and overprotective.

Perfectly within Apples right

Apple has always tried to contorol who gets into their boxes so it makes sence that they don't want anyone and everyone getting inside. There's also the likely possibility that a luser will get the documents, get inside *&^% it up and then bring in a box of electronics and a few thousand screws and demand that it be repaired.

Besides the fact you can get a service manual for a Mac is somewhat special - have you ever tried to get you hands on takeaparts for a brand name PC? Most of the compaq's I've had to service required a service manual much more than any Mac I've worked on
