MS-Word and Disclaimers

I was reading Linux Magazine and came across a link to Anonym.OS. I followed the link to the Anonym.OS home page and then to Taylor Banks’ website and eventually found Jeff Goldmark’s website.

Jeff writes net rants about some things that bother me as well. He wrote one about why you should not use MS-Word as a document exchange format.  I use OpenOffice.org for word processing and don’t have many problems opening MS-Word attachments.  The MS-Word documents are mostly used for collaboration on the BACnet standard, and that is the format that we use.

He wrote another about disclaimers that appear at the bottom of e-mail. I occasionally receive e-mail that has the disclaimer at the bottom. I guess they are silly, aren’t they?

I write software for a living. So, I dedicated some web space for some stuff that I have worked on. I mostly write embedded C for PC based controllers, but I have dabbled in a few other areas as well.
