Here are the slides that I presented this morning and that Jim is
presenting as I hit send.
I am sorry, I cannot open documents which are provided in a non-standard and
non-open format, for I do not have the necessary proprietary tools.
Proprietary tools are quite unnecessary. Have a look at
<http://www.openoffice.org/product/impress.html>, specifically this last line:
Of course, you are free to use your old Microsoft PowerPoint
presentations, or save your work in PowerPoint format for sending to people
who are still locked into Microsoft products. Alternatively, use IMPRESS's
built-in ability to create Flash (.swf) versions of your presentations.
Just because there is no published standard for the format of such files
doesn't mean that there isn't Free Software that can work with it.
Could you be so kind to send them again in an open format suitable for
publication ? (Text, RTF, HTML...) so that everybody can have access to
Alternative formats would certainly be nice.
