Re: [PLUG] Ubuntu 9.04 usb problems after install

I recently graduated from an online college whose method of grading involved sending my assignments to anonymous graders. I thought I would send everything in .rtf, as that is the lowest common denominator.
Office 2007 would open .rtf's in ALL CAPS. IT LOOKED LIKE I WAS SCREAMING ABOUT KANT.
Looked fine in everything else, OO and all other versions of M$, but because I couldn't tell which version the grader was using, I had to get a copy of Office and the formatting still would get hosed by the portal software...

Professors tend to still ask for hard copies because of the "Oh, my
word doc corrupted again? Well, I can resend it later today." excuse.
