True, but pages maintained by institutions are almost equally bad about
staying put! Many's the time I've clicked on a link, and the target's gone...

I make a real effort to try and not not kill any URL to my Web site that ever
worked (via redirects, if needed). I wish institutions were the same, but
alas, for most Web-masters, they apparently seem not to give a rodent's

But the downloading is a good idea - the more copies, the better (although in
this particular case, it's not like the content is irreplacable).

Well, the /45 front panel is easy: take out the 4 screws holding the bezel on
(quite easy - unlike, say, removing an H7420 to clean it - something I am
probably going to have to do), and then take out the 3 counter-sunk screws
holding the panel on (ditto), remove the two knobs (ditto again) - done! And
equally easy to reverse the process.

We've already got pretty good pictures of the 11/45 panel, and the RP11-C.
There are no RF11 or RK11-C images (that I know of - the RF11 manual only has
a drawing, and the RK11-C manual, not even that), so if you have either of
those, a picture would be better than nothing.
