Now fixed. I ran out of time last night at 4am and had to work today.

This is supposed to be the functionality of the user additions section. 
Writing up a specific .asoundrc for every card supported is an awesome 
task. It would require the developers (usually Takashi or Jaroslav) to 
spend the time for every device known to work. That means less actual 
coding. However there are plenty of people who use the devices and 
figure out the syntax for the .asoundrc by themselves. Recently I have 
been recieving about 4 useful additions per week.

Would you be satisfied if there were more card specific hints? I may be 
able to add some checks when we scan the user notes which would crete a 
link for notes apllicable to each card.

HOw long ago was this? BEtween July and October there was a difficult 
period when Jaroslav updated from php3 to php4 and my workstation went 
down so I couldn't make the necessary changes to the site.

Yes we use a template for the install docs.

  Apparently upon the beginning of the barrage, the donkey broke 
discipline and panicked, toppling the cart. At that point, the rockets 
disconnected from the timer, leaving them strewn around the street. 
Tethered to the now toppled cart, the donkey was unable to escape before 
the arrival of U.S. troops.
