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.

When I read this, I considered sending you an email which was in Word format. That is, just Word format. None of this multipart MIME stuff.

You should be glad that I don't actually have Word installed and thus it was more effort than I was willing to invest. ;)

I also don't know the standard MIME type for Word documents off the top of my head, so sod that idea!
