I hate Adobe. Its slow. It crashes alot. Its huge. Its terrible.


This program is free, its 1MB, doesn't require an install, it can be carried around on a flash drive, and loads up .pdf's about 10x's as fast as adobe.

It reads all your adobe files too..Awesome

Thanks for the link ACS! Exactly what I need!

As for Lotus Notes, my employer is IBM so I doubt I'll be getting rid of it anytime soon. Actually, it took me a while to get used to it but I kind of like it now. I think of it like the Mac of the email world. :-b

Oh man, we just upgraded Notes from 5.0 to 6.5 and people have been freaking out... "Oh no, look, it's new, we're all going to die!" Yeah, seriously, Notes is a pain in the neck with the whole domino server and replication. Company Gmail would be awesome; I heard Google employees each get a terabyte of storage for their company Gmail accounts. Awesome.

A terabyte? What the heck would you do with that much space? I can't fathom using up one Gig, let alone 1,000 Gigs.

I still have my old Hotmail account (which is my primary) at 250MB, and I think after almost ten years of using it I'm only up to 18% usage.

Seriously, what are people doing with these huge inboxes?

That's all it can be. Movie files, music files, huge bunches of picture files. A normal email without graphics is less than 10kb, and that's including several replies.

I've tried storing stuff on an email account, but I think it's really cumbersome to upload and download.

Firefox has an extention that lets you use your Gmail account as an online drive.
