Ack. I usually only distribute PDF files for review now. They don't
really take any more time to generate than hard copy, plus I can send
them out via email. People print out their own (which saves me having
to hike all over the building distributing hard copy) and edit, then
return the edits to me. I don't have to merge several electronic
versions, and I don't have anybody fooling with my stuff.

This is particularly important to me when we're talking about typeset
docs, such as brochures or marketing materials. I don't want any goofy
people messing with a program they don't understand and ruining my pretty
layout. :-)

I hate Outlook, btw. Some of the mildly cool things it used to do are
now harder or impossible in Outlook 97. Yuck. I just needed to share
that. :-)

I love deadlines. I especially like the whooshing sound they make
as they go flying by. Douglas Adams
