    Honda Beat Workshop Manual

    Hey guys,

    I have converted all 600 pages of the workshop manual to CD. If anyone is interested in a copy I'm happy to send it to you for 15 pound including postage.

    Regards

    Jason

    Workshop Manual

    Adrain,

    I have simply saved each page as a jpg and have organised these into folders according to chapters. As for payment, simply write a cheque for 15 pound and send it to...

    Please include your address and I will dispatch the CD immediately. The price includes postage and the fee to convert your cheque to Aussie dollars.

    Hope this helps

    Jason

    PS For every CD sold I would like to donate 1 pound to the club.

    Jason,

    Have you considered setting up a paypal account, it would make things much quicker and I'll buy one.
    It may also be worth running it through an OCR package and converting it to a .pdf or .doc file then you could e-mail it to us Poms and give half the postage to the site.

    Good idea that,

    Paypal is such a universal thing and it seems to work for anything you need.

    I didn't get chance to post the cheque off today after all so if you do have an account Jason then I can pay that way also if you want.

    Adrian.

    Paypal

    Hey guys

    Paypal is not available in Australia...

    I also attempted to run the manual through a couple of OCR packages but they took far to long to convert each page to pdf. When you take into account that it took almost ten hours of scanning to convert the entire manual, I used the most efficient system available. Coupled with this, jpg has a far better compression which not only saves space but also allows you to quickly browse through pages using slide show so you can find what you are looking for much easier.

    Regards

    Jason

    Just how big is it Jason? I mean all together?

    I can get 500MB of server space on here for next to nothing, then charge a small fee to enter the secure area. (for you!)

    Just a thought!

    Thumbs up Honda Beat Workshop Manual

    Hey guys,

    I do apologise, Paypal is now available in Australia and I have set up an account...

    jwtepper@urban.net.au

    My only reservation, is the ability to associate each payment with the respective member. In addition I will need to know your address so I can send you the CD. I'm sure we can work through this.

    As for the size, it is 302MB which would fit on the server but would take a lifetime to download, unless you have cable. I thought about using something like StuffIt but apparently you loose resolution of jpg's by doing this and I didn't want to loose any detail. Still interested in this option though.

    I thought cheques would be the most simple as you could write them in Pound Sterling, include your address and as soon I receive it I would dispatch the CD.

    Thanks so much for the help

    Jason

    Hey guys,

    It is good to hear the CD's are turning up as I was concerned with the war that they would be delayed. As for the movie file, Im glad you like it. I was even thinking if we could convert it to DivX we could put it on the site.

    Regards

    Jason

    Hey fellow Beat Owners,

    I'm really surprised at the number of countries Beats are to be found. While I remember, if you are using Paypal be sure to put where you live in the Shipping Information correctly.

    Many thanks

    Jason
