While we're digressing about manuals, I was somewhat amused by something
I was told by a colleague, years ago:  The service manuals for one of
the broadcast television cameras (I think it was a Marconi) all had CPR
instructions in the front, just in case someone working on them got
bitten by the electricity.

One of my favourite personal discoveries while doing some servicing work
at a local studio was finding an aspirin taped inside the chassis of a
computer.  It caused some mirth while we debated whether it was supposed
to help the crappy PC, or was there to help the next poor sod who had to
work on it.  ;-)
