I tend to ignore this thread when it gets polluted by unwarranted political opinions.
It isn't the thread's fault.  ;D

David,
sorry for being so long in replying in this thread ... yes the program I have long used is CutePDF too.
<snip>

Thanks Alan,
I was a little surprised at a) how basic it was with no tweaking options, etc. when compared with the rest of the Cute range, b) it also required a further download when I installed it.

Where as the DoPDF one at least lets you set the folder to save the files to, a nice touch for me is that it actually launches the FoxIt PDF reader (my default) and displays the saved pdf. I found this handy to ensure it actually captured what you wanted.

Might be worth a try.

There is nothing like having full control over your URLs
Here's one way to create one link to several selected URLs

You'll find an example of such a multi tabbed, single click, selected link here

The lightbulb of the future?
 Silicon Valley's Luxim has developed a lightbulb the size of a Tic Tac that gives off as much light as a streetlight.

I just received the following from HotMail:
Hotmail Team says "thank you" for being with us for 10+ years

That's right!

It's been roughly a decade since you registered your Hotmail® account, and we just want to say thank you.

You've witnessed many dramatic improvements to Hotmail since it launched. Just imagine what the next 10 years will bring!
Back around the time you started using Hotmail...

Windows® 98
Was the hot new operating system!
   

Titanic
Broke every box-office record imaginable.
   

The Spice Girls
Were rocking stadiums from London to LA!



How long have you had your hotmail account ???  :)
