printed manual/tutorials?

i love my computer but i am tired reading the manual off of
it. Does anyone know if there exists a printed version?
Would love to be able to take it around with me (all 400+
pages!).

The only printed versions of the manuals that
currently exist are the ones that individual
users decide to print for themselves. Those
trees in the rainforest still standing would
like to thank you for mindfully considering
whether or not you need a hard copy. Some people
prefer them, others are content to leaf things
as they are.

I wonder where the point of balance is between cutting down trees for
a paper manual vs. using energy to run the computer for hours while
reading the manual online, at least in terms of overall ecological
health. Where do we pass the point of diminishing returns? Seems like
a fun econometric problem…

Its a fun ecological problem… econimically paper is more expensive,
unless you account also for health problems caused by glaring into a too
small screen…
Paper at the moment seems to be sustainable, there are more trees
growing than cut down for paper production. This is neither true for
electrical power nor for the production of computers. It depends also
where you read it. If you carry the heavy paper around, it’ll eat more.
And you should read it in day light, not in the evening at the open
fire… ;-)

It is true, sometimes you have to destroy to build. Like
most ancient cultures, they used everything destroyed
constructively, breathing new life into it.
Let’s all go make copies of the max/msp manuals!
