Avaya for a while in the early to mid 2000's only made their manuals  
available to authorized resellers, that seems to have changed sometime  
after buying Nortel, all of the Avaya manuals, and the corresponding  
nortel ones became freely available online. Not sure I have the link  
anymore however. I personally find the Meridian much easier to program  
than say a Merlin II or whatever - but I found I needed a manual in  
either case to not be completely lost.

of "crackpot" than the stigma of conformity."
