quick MS word rant

The computer I am writing this on is probably powerful enough to run a small space station, and is certainly capable enough of playing dvds and other media, but will it let me scroll smoothly through a word document that happens to have a few bitmaps in it? no.

I get a similar thing where the images don’t load as you scrolling through a document. You have to stop and wait for them otherwise it looks like their not there. I too am runnng a small space station!

lol – I think its probably more of a comment on the shoddyness of MS word rather than what size space station its operating on 😉

I work for a publishing company. That means a lot of articles, papers on a server.

And hence, I have a NASA level PC mac on my desk. They don’t sell them to civilians.

Windows is slow…….
