It's Not Magic, It's Work!

Word != Word

Today at work someone sent me a word file. They should have sent the body text in the email, but they are too stupid to grasp the concept of email.

I started up Microsoft Word to view the document, only to discover that there was nothing in the document. They must have sent a version of Word that my version ('97) was unable to work with.

I ran the Word file through Antiword and the day was saved. After all the effort, I was presented with four short paragraphs of text, that I already had, and didn't address the problem I written to the person about in the first place.
