No one needs to get your infected copy. They can get it from the
source: Abobe.

I am very happy with with Adobe Rader albeit some consider it "bloated" compared to FoxIt
and many have turned to this alternative.

As an alternative to Adobe Acrobat I have started using the GNU PDF Creator software.

BTW: I sent you email but I received errors and I am pretty sure you didn't receive it.
Please drop me an email.

I sent you an email. Anything sent to /notron/ gets dumped, I get
everything else.

I don't create PDFs, and only use them for printing when absolutely
forced. I find the documents themselves to be one of the most abused,
along with Flashcrap, formats on the internet. Here is a perfect example
which I posted in the GRC newsgroups in March.

My wife feeds her dogs a 5.5 oz can of this every morning.

PDF is a `portable document format'. It makes static paged documents
look the same everywhere without the need to store them as a set of
pictures. It was never intended to be an online format for presenting
web content to the user.

Nothing. This is like receiving pictures as Powerpoint files. PDF is
just misused for something, which it hasn't been made for. That's not
PDF's fault, it's the user's.

Then 95% of all computer users are idiots. Besides PostScript, PDF is a
widely used format for paged presentations, especially in science.

Except that PDFs only print efficiently on Postscript printers. Gee, do
you think that has anything to do with both being proprietary (at least
to start) technologies of Adobe. [g]

Of course it is. Ultimately. But whose fault is that really? It all
comes down to Adobe's BS marketing over the years.

"The easiest, fastest way to publish anything on the web."

Give me a break. Morons misuse the PDF format because that is the way
Adobe wants it.

Of course they are. No argument here. And because of these idiots, I am
forced to used PDF. But Adobe can stick PostScript where the Sun doesn't
shine. I threw my last PostScript printer in the trash 10 years ago.

> widely used format for paged presentations, especially in science.


As I a Ph.D. Analytical Chemist, I know that all too well. Some of the
biggest idiots in the world are scientists. Or pseudo-scientists.

Many of the scientists that I have known over the years should not be
allowed to touch a computer. [g]

Thanks for playing. PDF still sucks.

I am being somewhat tongue-in-cheek here, Ertugrul. That said, I don't
see anything wrong with pointing out the insanities of the world. Still,
nothing will change, of course, because the assholes in marketing won't
allow it. [vbg]
