Some of them really made me laugh, and a couple are just cool!
Be warned, 1 or 2 have some MILD swearing in them, whether you want to download the VIRUS FREE zip file is up to you :)

I hope this does not offend anyone although i dont think it will
But i have thought about it this time
Please do say if it causes a problem rightaway - i do not want to be kicked (hence all this writing)

Really, i thought they were very cheap, although I guess that there is VERY little meat on them

Sparky, I agree!

In France, this is not an "aquaduct" - it is a highway bridge near Millau in the Aveyron. Beautiful area.

In Spain, I have seen aquaducts very similar to that. Also they were very old :)

Glad that I could return the favour when you guys are often giving me stuff!
whs, if you download the file at the top, there are some others (a pdf and a couple of powerpoints, along with the txt files as word docs - i simply did the second zip becuase lighthouse does not have microsoft office)
and the others are worth looking at!

Yes I think I should :)
Personally I would choose Microsoft Office above anything else
I love it, even the new version
and it has SO much more power than all the other clones

OK. Heres the story.
I have PowerPoint Viewer
I have Foxit
I did have MS Word Viewer (but had forgotten to re-instal it after my last Vista re-instal). It is now installed.
A few weeks ago, I installed Open Office (to help a member with a problem) and then un-installed it.
PowerPoint Viewer will not work on my housemates old XP, so I installed Open Office for him.

Ah, that's why then, when you are born with previous knowledge, and as learning process goes up, the overall intelligence level goes down. Because the increase in insanity with age, increases faster than the level of the learning process.
