the ppt panic

I confess... Anytime powerpoint crashes or fails to load a plugin or can't find an attached file during a presentation, I experience uncontrollable schadenfreude. Especially when the speaker is openly disdainful or skeptical of TeX. (Which in economics is basically an if and only if condition for using powerpoint in the first place.)

This has happened at least three times in the last month :)

(Hey, at least my tech snobbery hasn't gotten to the point where I begrudge others' use of things like non-linux or non-emacs or their fear of non-Matlab... I just feel bad that they're stuck torturing themselves. The TeX thing is more irritating because they're likely to try to inflict their .doc's on me :)
