Ferdie to Bob

  • Boojferd
    Dear Bob, here are some photos of my life here on the campus of Concordia Seminary. I love kids, working with the grounds crew, swimming, playing with my dog friends, and especially my own family people.

    PDF is good if you have technical papers that have a lot of equations or special fonts that aren't normally on people's machines. It also only requires a free reader to read it on nearly any machine, as opposed to requiring Microsoft Word.

    That said, I totally agree with you about how some programs read PDF. Some browsers download the whole file before reading any of it. If the user has special fonts on his machine and doesn't save them, it can look like crap.

    I would use PDF in a situation which required sending an email with a PDF attachment. But that is SO 15 years ago. I'd rather write a web page now and let any machine interpret what I write however it wants, as cleanly as it can. :)




    Interesting! The Council for Advancement and Support of Education is a widely recognized and respected entity that provides development information to both public and private educational institutions.
