You could always print manuals out. I do and I don't have problems reading off the computer, I just like being able to highlight important things and maybe cross-reference two pages at a time. If you don't have a printer you can bring the cd to kinko's and ask 'em to print it for you.

The info in manuals is not a secret. It's the first place you should look if you have a question about a piece of software/hardware. U don't always have to read it from front to back, but if people learned how to use a table of contents, a dictionary and google, there would maybe be more professional people on here answering more professional questions.

People act like they got a recording session with Dr. Dre 20 minutes from now and they don't have time to read no boring ass manual.
I agree, some people act like douche bags when answering questions, including myself from time to time. The flip side is that if you try to teach a Future Producer how to fish instead of giving him a fish, he might get offended because you didn't breast feed him.
If somebody asks a question and the answer's on page 2 of Getting Started, I'ma tell them to look for that thread, knowing it's not that hard to find. I don't remember personally calling people names or insulting anybody's intelligence tho. All that is uncalled for.
