These files cannot be read by many people.
Please, when creating Document Attachments, use the .DOC file extension, and format
. This should be fairly simple by using the "Save As"
facility and selecting the original format.
Since a .DOC contains all the facilities one would ever need, there is absolutely no reason for the .DOCX Format.
Is it really not necessary to be a Sheep and do everything Micro$oft order you to do? Actually "No"
. I run Office 2000, which is fully-compatible with everything else on the planet. (I also run Win98, btw)
The First Law of Computing: Garbage Out = Garbage In
The Second Law of Computing: If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
(I only use Windows in order to create compatible software ... whenever I do that. If it were not for that, and that all my 'tools' are Windows-orientated ... purely because of history ... I'd be using Linux)
Further to this subject I'm currently in the process of uploading a couple of CD Images (called .ISOs). They can be downloaded and a CD burned accordingly. If your Operating System doesn't recognise them, then this highly recommended freebie
certainly will. (Personally I think it is worth installing anyway, just for the flexibility & facilities it offers)
The two downloads, once burned, form Installs. These are both cracked, so no CD Key thingy is necessary. (No ... I didn't crack them ... in any case I can't imagine Micro$oft giving a shit about them anymore ... they have much bigger Sheeple to fleece these days).
1. Micro$oft Photodraw
... is the only piece of software they actually released that works properly & efficiently ... and leaves Photoshop & all the others standing. (No ... Micro$oft themselves didn't write it. It was originally a freebie/add-on to their freebies they give to OEMs). They no longer release it, and haven't done for years ... presumably because it works, and shows up all their other shyte. Photodraw will do anything you want with any Image. It will normally Save
in it's own format (.MIX) which allows full editing & re-editing until you get it right (as you want it). Then use Save As
to create the fixed Image
... as a .GIF/.JPG, etc. You can always go back to the .MIX & re-edit & re-create the .GIF/.JPG (UPLOADED)
2. Micro$oft Office 2000
... once again they have been through Office 2003, and the latest load of crap that creates .DOCXs by default. Do yourself a favour and bin their latest crap. Install vanilla Office 2000, and everyone will be able to read what you write. (UPLOADED)
