moped guide

i can totally understand fred wanting to keep his guide the way it is. and i do think that he misunderstood chris robertson's post. it was meant as a joke, not as an insult. the "bobo" name was meant to highlight this, not hide behind something.

but there are a couple of things to consider. one is that people should be able to make minor changes to the guide if they think it would help them. we've put together a version of fred's guide that everyone knows is based on fred's guide. it has no date, no author, no nothing. much of our stuff is made that way (i.e. very ananymous and in "underground style"). if you insist, fred, we can put your name on it or say that much of it comes from you.

but we used your guide as a skeleton along w/ many other things. i'm sure you got yours from other books and/or people. nothing wrong w/ that. that's just the nature of technical manuals. i sent you (fred) a copy of the "edited" guide.

it has nothing to do w/ necessarily changing anything or taking away credit. but there are a few things we do differently, and a few things we fix that weren't in the guide. so that's why it was changed. i haven't heard yet if fred likes this "edited" version or not. but while the spirit is the same, it has a much different audience in mind.

i thik fred's guide is great. we all love it and think it's a useful thing to have as a reference. but we also need paper copies we can carry around w/ us and hand out to people who just got their first moped. it helps them to learn how to fix things easily.

ok, i've been rambling on now. but i want to emphasize that no one (i think i can also speak for chris) mean to insult fred. we can't take all things so seriously, folks.
