This is kind of off the topic a little, but did you know that Word doesn't
really delete your text?

1. Open a new document and put a few lines of text in it, like
"This is sample text. Ignore this." Save the document
as you would a normal document. (I think you don't even
have to close the document.)

2. Delete the original text and put some other text in the
document. Maybe like, "Never mind." Save the document again
and close it.

3. Start up Notepad, or some other ascii editor and open the
document. Mixed in with all the Word markup is your original
text. (I believe if you search for "This" it'll find it
for you quickliest. |] )
