hmm, i'm not sure about that one either. is there a way to see which are
the most viewed?

probably the UpStage manual doesn't need to be archived, as we have old
versions on the website (i think ... we used to ... ) & i don't think
anyone out there is using the old versions anyway. & hopefully in the
not too distant future we are going to have a completely shiny new
improved platform! :)
