OK. I'll bite. What's THIS all about?
To tell the truth, I don't know yet. It just seemed like a good idea at the time. Maybe it was the booze, maybe the drugs, maybe it was just a midnight fling, maybe it was just one of those things.
C'mon, Steve. What IS it?
It's what you make of it. If you have any neat but fundamentally useless PowerPoint Tricks, let me know. You could achieve fame and fortune ... or perhaps notoriety and ridicule. Or not. Who knows.
The ground rules (and thanks ever so to TAJ for helping define these):
- The trick must be reproducible on other computers running the same version of PowerPoint. If it involves wrapping yourself and your Atari in aluminum foil and subjecting you both to space rays from Planet-X, I don't want to know about it. Try Letterman.
- The trick must be of some use to somebody somewhere in some conceivable circumstance for some believable reason.
- Sheer entertainment value? Works for me.
- If you can't come up with a reason for using it, however tenous, it's not a trick, it's a bug. Tell Microsoft. Or Letterman.
- At the same time, the trick can't be of much use to anybody, because then it's a feature and Microsoft should be telling us about it. Letterman too. What the heck.
- Any further arbitrary, capricious or whimsical rules that strike my fancy. I have the keys to the FAQ, and I'm not afraid to use them.
