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?
