Lol I remember I actually had a folder with printed instructions for missions/quests etc until I was able to use another laptop to figure things out.
Hahaha! I remember having hundreds of printed pages scattered everywhere because I didn't have constant access to a PC when I started playing FFXI. I'd have to go to a friend's house or print off a whole list of missions at school. And don't even get me started on my coveted skillchain chart.
