1/30    What is an easy and free way to extract about 40 pages from a 180 page
        pdf document, so that I end up with one 40 page .pdf file and one
        140 page .pdf file?  I only need to do this once, so if there's
        some business that'll do this, I'd pay for it, but I don't want to
        buy software to only do it once.  I have Acrobat Professional, but I
        can't figure out how to use that to do this.
        \_ If you have Acrobat professional, the easiest way is top open the
           "Pages" pane, select the pages you want to extract, then right-click
           and choose "extract pages".  When that's done, right-click again and
           select "delete pages".
           \_ Wow, problem solved.  Thank you!!!

4/04    Is there a good way to diff 2 files that consist of columns of
        floating point numbers, such that it only tells me if there's a
        difference if the numbers on a given line differ by at least a given
        ratio?  Say, 1%?

10/10   Any reccomendations for a cheap monochrome laser printer?  Network
        not needed.  A decent-size starter toner cartridge would be nice.
        \_ I got a used HP 2200D off craigslist for $250 or so.  It's
           great, it does postscript and prints on both sides of the
           paper, which is nice.  Speed is not too bad.  -phr

6/7     What, if any, is the best way to "convert" a PDF document to either
        a text file or a Word document? I tried copying/pasting the text
        (after highlighting it), but the document formatting is lost. I can
        manually enter carriage returns, but it's a long document (~50 pages)
        The entire document is just paragraphs of text. This is on a OS X
        machine. Thanks.

11/21   I've noticed that the OS X Terminal.app and xterm etc are all
        slower than xterm / rxvt on Linux/x86. Even a 500 MHz P2 has
        quicker response than a 1.33 Ghz G4 when you are logged
        into a server via SSH. I'm wondering what could be the cause
        of this lag. Is it something that can be adjusted? I find the
        sluggishness the only think holding me back from using a Mac

           and view it using Acrobat Reader.

           a cheaper quality alternative, please let me know. -brett
        \_ I've used Photoshop + Acrobat to OCR magazine articles and
           papers and found that it works pretty well. If you want to
           save some money buy a copy of Acrobat v6. --ranga
