9/17/2009 update: When I first posted this I was a little nervous - one guy with a laptop against the 500 lawyers in the Oregon DOJ. Then Jack Bog, Jeff Mapes, Richard Coe at The Bend Bulletin, slashdot.org and Volokh.com wrote about it. I got thousands of hits and the pdfs of the manual (or at least the preface) have been downloaded hundreds of times and are now safely mirrored at several sites. I also got a lot of comments and letters of support. I really appreciate those!
DOJ spokesperson Tony Green then called and we had a long phone conversation. He was a little shell-shocked. I think the AG is hoping it will be a long, long time before his name shows up on slashdot again!
