But  I have to counter that argument with - how do I know what information is 
 reliable either on this list or on other how to sites? How do I know who is 
an  expert on this list?



Yeah, it's a problem. I figure that even though it's "at your own  discretion 
and risk," the risk is less if more people see and review. What we  really 
need is AN OFFICIAL REVISED MANUAL, authored or at least  reviewed and approved 
by one or major vendor. I discussed it at various times  with several vendors. 
 I've been saying that since 2000, but for various  reasons, nobody has done 
it. They "don't see a need." DMC Texas has several  still-unprinted service 
bulletins, but declined to make them available when I  requested them. James 
sent me a copy of one, but that was it. I've even gathered  the materials to do 
the basic draft myself, but it's not a quick afternoon  project. That's actual
ly why I set up the DMCTech site several years ago, so  several experts might 
review and respond. Many people complaining too at  that time, nobody actually 
wanted to do anything. At least this time some folks  have set up wikis. There 
are of course other sites with tech info, but nothing  comprehensive. A 
little here, a little there. There needs to be one spot which  at least indexes all 
the various websites. Still, a manual would be the best.  (Please don't write 
and tell me to "buy the manual." I have at least 30,  including several 
original copies of each, even handwritten tech training notes  predating the 
manuals,  the out of print manuals, the service  bulletins, and the unrevised and 
sometimes inaccurate vendor reprints.)
