Adobe CS5 User Manuals

I recently upgraded to Adobe Creative Suite 5. So far it’s a nice upgrade and since is now written for a 64 bit Intel Mac, it is noticable quicker than the old version I had on my machine. But, since i bought the update online, and downloaded the software, I did not get any printed material (e.g. user manuals). And it looks like that if you buy the retail package, user manuals are not included either. So how do I learn to use the new stuff?
Download them from Adobe. They are the CS5 Help Guides, and here is where you can the core help files from Adobe:

Made it to Prague

After waiting in line for 90 minutes to check in at the airport, flying for 9 hours (without sleep), sitting on the train for 7 hours (no sleep, but a 2 hour break and walk about in Dresden), we’ve made it to our hotel, got some sleep, and are about to hit the town. We’ve got a nice little hotel 20 minutes from the city center via tram.


Leaving today to go on my trip to Europe with my wife. I’ll have a few posts, and a few pics from my iPhone (no international roaming or data, thank you hotspots). But the good stuff will be online when I unload them from my camera storage unit.
