    Well count yourself lucky! us tough comp.sci students had to type everything long hand in TeX or LaTeX

    \documentclass[12pt]{article}
    \usepackage{amsmath}
    \title{\LaTeX}
    \date{}
    \begin{document}
    \maketitle
    \LaTeX{} is a document preparation system for the \TeX{}
    typesetting program. It offers programmable desktop publishing
    features and extensive facilities for automating most aspects of
    typesetting and desktop publishing, including numbering and
    cross-referencing, tables and figures, page layout, bibliographies,
    and much more. \LaTeX{} was originally written in 1984 by Leslie
    Lamport and has become the dominant method for using \TeX; few
    people write in plain \TeX{} anymore. The current version is
    \LaTeXe.

    % This is a comment; it is not shown in the final output.
    % The following shows a little of the typesetting power of LaTeX
    \begin{align}
    E &= mc^2 \\
    m &= \frac{m_0}{\sqrt{1-\frac{v^2}{c^2}}}
    \end{align}
    \end{document}

    The number of times the thing just crashed and one time I lost 12 hours worth of work as saving it to the 'floppy' was hardly easy

    then if I remember we had to save it as a secial spool file and go into the 'printer room' and put coinage into the printer and pray that the darned thing didn't stick or run out of ink.

    Ah the good old days

    I used to type a little like that in the wordperfect pane I'm sure Keith - but so so often when you went to 'print preview' none of the bullet points lined up or you went over onto another sheet with your rudimentary table

    Oh l remember word perfect. My husband did his degree later in life. I remember having to buy a computer in 1996 that cost 2k and looked like we had a whole mainframe in our bedroom.
    He typed up his dissertation and lost half of it .

    Yep!

    Back and forth... back and forth...

    Excel = Numbers
    Word = Pages
    PowerPoint = Keynote

    At least with Office 2003 they do. Don't know about Office 2007 files yet. Haven't tried those.

    I'm too busy learning how to hate Office 2007 for my real job just yet. :mad:
