ALSC Technical Tips and Tricks

Welcome to our NEW technical page.

As articles and information becomes available, we will post it to this page with a brief description of the content.

Information may be in a range of file formats and where possible we will endeavour to display these in the most common manner. Certain files may require the viewer to save them to their own drive(s) and open them using other software, like Adobe Acrobat files (.pdf), Corel Draw files (.cpt or .cdr), MS Word files (.doc) etc:

Certain information will also be compiled and published for viewers to easily download or print out. Ie: To print a copy of our Japanese dashboard warning translation, click HERE and follow the instructions on screen.
