Go to and click the link on the
home page to get the file.

It is missing the four pictures below. If you have some pictures
that can be used for the guide, please email them to me at

I will update the guide again all when I get all the pictures. More
data will be added to the appendixes in the future as well.

Thanks for sending me pictures, suggestions, edits and encouragement.
