Thanks to a free(for personal use) program that I found, I have been able to convert parts of the Competition Manual into Palm DOC format, and they are now available for download at the link below. If you do not have a DOC reader, there's also a link to download one of those from there. Currently, I have the following sections converted:

- The Game
- The Robot, Pt 1
- Team Update 1
- Team Update 2
- Team Update 3

The only downside to the DOC versions of the manual is that the format does not support all the nice pictures that FIRST puts in the manual, but other than that, the conversion seems to have gone quite well, after some fine-tuning of the output by yours truly. =) Tables also get a little messed up, so the kit list is not in the Robot Pt. 1 file...I'm working on it as a separate file...check it out!

No. I don't mean a dancing band. I mean something like Bon Jovi or most of those old bands.

Nate,

If you do not mind sharing, what is the conversion program you used?
