Remember in high school ( when you had to write a paper of a
specific length? You would shorten the margins, maybe sneak the font a
size seems I am doing the same thing now.

The gentleman who approves some of our documents has a hang up about
thickness. I was told by one of his co-workers to use a larger font, and
maybe a few extra page breaks simply because the man would not open a
document that appears to be too thin.

I understand that in the past he might have felt a bit ripped off on
content...but that is a bit archaic. So instead of making the document more
user friendly, I have to sacrifice usability and cater to this one man...the
approving authority.

When I took it to my boss yesterday, the document was 130+ pages, he
jokingly said "I don't know, maybe we should print it single sided."

Who doesn't know what day it is, cause they all bleed together...someone
told him it was Friday?!?

--Today, for revenge, I hid a little Easter egg. When the user clicks to
hear a test sound, they get to hear Homer Simpson singing Space Cowboy.
