Web Secret #110: Read the Manual (part 2)

Way back in May of 2009, I wrote about the importance of reading manuals and posted some online resources for said manuals.

A year has passed and I just came across the mother lode for guidebooks of all kinds:

The Guide Database aka Guide DB.

What's so amazing about Guide DB?
  1. They claim to link to over 47 million guidebooks and manuals of all kind
  2. They not only cover technology, but every kind of guidebook you can think of - from car manuals, to obscure dictionaries, to instructions for that filter system in your fridge that you threw away 5 years ago.
  3. Feeling bored? Explore their index of top guides for inspiration. Who knew you could still find out how to operate the 2001 Ford Windstar?
  4. Want to read the latest? Review their list of recent guides. How about an English - Hindi Medical Dictionary? A compilation of Jazz Chord Progressions? World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade Game Guide?
Using the Guide DB is a snap. You type what your looking for in their search window and click "Search!" I have an old Palm TX, so I typed that in, and voila! User Guide For The T|X Handheld download comes up.

Simple and useful - I like that.
