You paid how many hundred dollars for that office suite? [Feb. 14th, 2003|04:56 pm]

Why do I get idiots sending me spreadsheets without formulas, with all the numbers added up by hand?

Why do I get idiots sending me spreadsheets with multiple numbers per cell, separated by slashes? (with the top column labeled something like (per unit/total))

Why do I get idiots sending me 1 page plain text Word documents attached to plain text emails? Just include the text in the email!

My god, people.

I hear ya.

I'm in this group for my biology class. I get this email the other day from one of the girls, she says she found a figure that I might find useful when I make the powerpoint presentation. Right on. I go to see the attached file, notice it's a word document and not a picture file. Hmm...that's weird. Well maybe she just pasted the picture into word cause it was convenient, and then just attached the file. So I open up the word file....and there's a fucking link to the page that has the picture :-)
