I went ahead and downloaded them all and put them in a zip archive. Disk space is cheap, never know when I or someone else might need these.

Hi cajunman,

 

Would this be an Off Topic if I asked how you went about down loading to a zip archive?? I've never downloaded anything to a zip file before. ;)

 

Thank you,

You download them then with a zip program, you create a archive of all the files you wanty to zip...

 

winzip

winarc

Personally I use 7-zip. Completely free, with no "nagware" (in other words, it won't continually remind you to "buy the full version" like WinZip does).

 

I should mention it appears PDF's are fairly compressed as it is, because all the files total were just over 100MB, but the archive is ~95MB on "Maximum" compression level.

Hi,

 

This is great!! Thanks for the link. I've downloaded the ones my boss is always asking me about and will burn them to a CD. Great guy, my boss, but I'm constantly being interrupted with very basic questions. He doesn't use several of the programs often enough.

Thanks cajunman,

 

Then I don't even have to bother zipping them. :)

 

And thank you for the information about 7-zip, I'll have to look into that.

 

BTW, thanks for the links youneverknow. :)

 

And thanks also jayson, I have the paid version of winzip, but lost the information to get it back when my computer crashed, but I do have a hard copy, I just have to look for it.
