PDF files have all sorts of great implementations. When security is a concern, it is pretty much a standard in the software industry to go with PDF…as much as I love a plain text file, sometimes they just don’t cut it. External facing documentations? Think PDF.
The downside of the standard comes in the conversion factor. Doing business on different levels undoubtedly will end up with different departments using different file types. Standardizing via pdf will end up involving pulling a full gambit of extensions into the desired form. It can get messy.
I recently stumbled across a solution that I am glad to see exists…namely, a pdf to word converter. No joke…it took me by surprise to see that it is easily handled.
Quick-PDF (as the name implies) provides a solution that can do PDF to Word Converter easily. I have struggled in the past to find a way to drop PDFs into .doc files, .rtf files, etc. on Windows machines. Not anymore. They have even worked in a command line mode…which, needless to say, really pleases a *nix guy like me. High quality to boot. I’m a big fan.
I’m glad to report that I will no longer be maintaining my docs in multiple formats. +1 efficient.
For a long while when we ~buffering~ used to stream YouTube ~buffering~ videos our inter… ~buffering~ …net connection used to be sort of ~buffering OoO buffering OoO buffering~ lousy. It would randomly stop ~buffering~ a movie for several seconds, which does ~buffering~ not seem like much of a deal unless you are trying to ~buffering OoO buffering OoO buffering~ concentrate on ~buffering~ something. Buffering.
Well, fortunately for us, our issue was an easy fix. As the technician did the normal technician thing, whereas he checks line levels at the modem and works backwards to the stub in, he (we) found a splice into the neighbor’s place. Must have been an inside deal at some point…an inside deal that would have gone unnoticed a few years ago. Once I moved in and started cranking high speed internet and two digital cable connections on the coaxial, it became a sore thumb.
The question of the day is this…what do you do in a place without the physical connections that we have? Are you just s.o.l. and stuck buffering?
Whereas dial-up connections were the status quo, the future is now here, my friends. Satellite Internet is your answer.
It is pretty amazing if you stop to think about it…jumping up to broadband speeds from dial-up, using technology that is superseding that of the cellular industry. Leaps and bounds, when comparing geosynchronous orbit to the height of a cell tower. Think about that.
Anyhow, hit that link above to see how a good provider does it. Or buffer…your choice.
