* v1.2 - Released 10/20/2004. Found exact trigger for Superintendent's Memo, so
         documented it. Plus minor format changes. Pretty much nothing left to
         do/figure out, so this is likely unofficially the final version.

---

* v1.1 - Released 10/14/2004. Clarified a couple points. Format changes to be
         more in-line with my main Silent Hill 4 FAQ.

---

* v1.0 - Released 9/22/2004. Initial release. May be errors.

---

* FAQ Creation Date - 9/20/2004.

This is where I'll be listing the locations to find all of the memos. As you 
may or may not know, Memos are counted in your final score at the end of a 
game, and thus you need to collect nearly all of them to qualify for a 10-Star 
ranking.

Don't let me spoil the game for you! I suggest you play through at least once 
before you consult this guide, as I will be using full names of areas to give 
the best description of where and when to find memos possible. I will also use 
event spoilers to better describe certain memos.

Memos appear in order that they do in the game here. Not in the Memo screen.

With that said, let's get on to the list.
