Pearls of wisdom from the CommunicaTRON 1200 user manual

C-Tron has been lurking around our offices for a while now. He has become sort of a fixture on the third floor, where he stares out through the glass wall of a conference room, silently judging people as they walk to the kitchen for snacks.

Unfortunately, we recently had to pack him up to make way for a new smoothie bar, so a few of us volunteered to drag C-Tron down to the basement. As we were lifting him back into the musty old box where we found him, we noticed something lying at the bottom. That thing turned out to be the original user manual. Flipping through its pages, we realized what a treasure we had stumbled upon. The manual is full of strange diagrams, bizarre instructions, and ridiculous warnings. It’s sort of like a time capsule from the dark ages of customer service technology.

We felt like this was something we had to share, so we cleaned it up a little and posted it here for your viewing pleasure.

Needless to say, you should read the entire thing. Or are you looking for something more modern?

We know. It's a lot to take in.
