Well, I received the converted files this morning... a powerpoint presentation converted to HTML and a word document converted to a .pdf file... seems to work ok... but don't know how useful it would be because you have to wait for conversion... and if you don't pick up within 24 hours you lose it... but could come in handy I guess... don't know that it's a tool that I would use much of...

Thought I'd give 2.1 a go: #24 - Zamzar
Well, I've decided to play around a bit with 2.1 - have been checking out Zamzar, a file conversion programme. This site offers 'on-the-fly' conversion of text, image, audio and video file formats without installing a download.
Unfortunately if you're using the free version, there's no timespan guaranteed for the conversion - a link gets emailed to you and then you need to retrieve the converted file, and it only gets stored for 1 day from the time of the email!!!!
I just converted a powerpoint presentation to html but yes, I'm still waiting for my email!!!!! so I don't know if it's worked yet.
