Sometimes, it's the little stuff that makes our lives easier. Over at Lifehacker, they reported yesterday on a new website that converts documents to other formats--for free, with no need to download anything. CometDocs is a "one of its kinds free online document conversion interface that offers a large set of document conversions that can't be found anywhere else online". That means if you have a Word doc you need converted to PDF, or an Excel doc converted to Word (go ahead and use your imagination here--over 50 different conversion options!!!) this site can make it happen, quickly and easily.
Now for those of you with relatively current technology, this may not be necessary, or particularly interesting (unless you're wonky like me). But if your technology is a bit, how do you say, ancient, well then, I hope this will improve the quality of your work life just a little bit.
