And the prize for the quote of the day goes to George Orwell for this stunning gem from his tour de force, 1984.
"What can you do, thought Winston, against the lunatic who is more intelligent than yourself, who gives your arguments a fair hearing and then simply persists in his lunacy?"
And the prize for application of the day goes to PDFCreator for creating a compelling GUI to Ghostscript. Much better than my old "print to file", "open with GSView", "convert to PDF" loop. For people who don't know what I'm talking about, PDFCreator lets your print any file to a PDF. So you can convert your Word and Excel files (all kinds of files, actually) to PDF files.
