  1. yummy, super, love those animated gifs! and what an original idea to make a new manual!

  2. Hi Georg, If I'd intended doing the animation, I'd have put a few more stages of opening in, but I was just scrolling through the photos and it begged to be done :-) I'll post the manual when its finished. I'm aiming for a triumph of style over substance!
