    Funny you say that....I just sold a flash and completely forgot about the manual....The buyer asked about it and I smacked myself in the head and said Duh! I had it and shipped it separately. A gentle reminder might spur the person on to retrieve it from a pile of manuals.
    Good news is we can now download most manuals off the manufacturers site.

    I am one of the guilty parties which is really strange too . I never even take them out of the box especially flash manuals. Okay that was a reminder to look again. I turn 54 tomorrow and i seriously have lost memory. LOL

    I always try to find a PDF version of the manual and hardly ever look into the printed versions anymore.
