Jim...my understanding is that a word document can easily be converted to html and that those with space to host it and unafraid of the consequences or perhaps living outside of the USA could host it as you describe.
I have often wondered how long it would take to get something to go truly "viral". Perhaps this could be a good test. If I email it to 50 contacts and they were then to email it to 50 contacts....

Just an FYI...

The file goes through much more easily as an attachment than it does when cut and pasted into the text section of the email...

I would have put references to the URL on my web sites had the content been re-posted in HTML or text. Enough people do that and the key words in it would have caused it to eventually bubble to the top of Google and other search engine pages.

Too bad.

Because 1. Somebody had said they were already doing it and, quite honestly, 2. This issue is simply not important enough to me to put that much time and effort into it. (Now, before somebody with impaired reading comprehension skills climbs all over me, I will clarify that last bit. I did not say the issue was unimportant. I did not say it wasn't at all important to me. What I did say was it wasn't important enough to me to put that much time and effort into it.)

It's not a question of "easyer" [sic], btw. It's a question of "more effective" - which was my point. Had it been published in an open, portable format, it would have probably seen much wider dissemination. (Btw, Sailormann, spamming MS Word attachments around is a good way to receive unwanted attention from your ISP--especially given the fact that MS Word vulnerabilities are a vehicle by which virus', worms and Trojans are spread. [Which is why one should never open an MS Word doc received from an unknown/unexpected source, but that's a whole 'nother subject.])

Mark, no offence intended, truly, but is English not your native language? Because often you are incomprehensible. I mean to the point that I often just give up trying to make sense of what you're trying to say. The sentence above, for example, simply doesn't parse into anything that makes sense.

Jim

That is way out of line, and I demand that this post be deleted. If you can't comment about boats that crack in half and sink, you certainly cannot comment about boats that merely bend. Further, if you fail to accord proper respect to those who sail superior, if oddly designed, French boats, then I'll be forced to, to ... I'm not sure yet, but I'll be forced to do something! And you won't like it a bit!

It is clear to me that you have the rarified "Superior Bendy toy". Which is obviously of much greater quality due to the fact it is on the Great Lakes.

Au contraire, mon ami, we sail on Long Island Sound, sometimes known as the Great Dead Sea, but certainly not a lake.

But I do agree that we have a "Superior Bendy Toy."
