    BRCS Download

    As mouthy as I am...(not seem mind you...AM)...I don't know much about computers. I thought I remembered downloading the BRCS some time ago and printing it out...which I still have. HOWEVER, what the heck is a RAR file and how do I open it???

    I wanted to download the material again and print a new version out since my old one is...well...old.

    Use this one instead.

    http://www.birthright.net/showthread.php?t=2628

    It is the pinned thread at the top of the BRCS discussion (Latest version of the BRCS by Chapter). It ahs the sanctioned versions of Chapter 1 and 2.

    And the files are word and pdf not RAR.

    ouu.... I'm glad you added that link, I've wondered where newer corrections are added. Still learning the ropes around here, i'm afraid.

    So yes, Thanks!

    The link to chapter 2 didn't work, or, "the file was damaged and couldn't be repaired". Is this a real problem, or is it just in my mind?

    Worked for me.

    I've used Adobe Professional to stitch all the chapters back together; would it be a violation of any rules for me to post a link to this?

    Check what version of acrobat you are using.

    I thought this was version 6. So it might not work if yuo have reader version 5.

    Regardless the word versions should still work though.

    I've just experienced this as well, and believe there IS a problem, tho' it's not insurmountable, just needs to be addressed on the Admin end.

    It appears that Chap 1 was saved with/as an Adobe ver 5 or lower, and Chapter 2 and etc were saved as Adobe ver 6 or 7 (current.)*

    The only problem is... version 6 or higher system requirements are much more than what's required for Windows '98- won't even load on older machines. If ver 5 tries to open a ver 6 or 7 .pdf, it reports the "file was damaged and couldn't be repaired". Not very good foresight on the part of Adobe, but whaddya want from freeware?

    So, anyone who still uses '98 (like me, for my desktop/web-surfing computer anyway), is screwed. (Anyone with a more modern machine but an old version of Adobe can download newer versions from Adobe or Tucows.)

    Any chance those .pdf's can be "Saved As" an earlier version, so all can enjoy them without arcane computer contortions? (I think no relevant features are lost, unless a Chinese-font version exists, or one with movies instead of artwork is desired.)

    ------------------
    (*This is based on empirical experimentation only. I still can't open the damn thing to verify the different versions. When I can, come Tuesday, I'll only be able to open it on my work computer- not very handy for when I'm back home.)

    (btw- where are these "word versions" of which legends are told?)
