Now, that is a paradoxon. :mrgreen:
(I'm a bit biased since Word made it a hell of a lot more difficult writing my last really important paper (my Staatsexamensarbeit (state examination thesis?), which then turned out not to be important at all :(). And a friend of mine had serious problems (caused by Word) writing his diploma thesis.

Believe it or not, but if I want to write something long and don't want to lose it, I use my hotmail account and save it on draft.
Or the "reply to a post" function on this site, then save it in hotmail. :P

When I first met my friend, Lorraine, she was in art college. She didn't have a clue about computers, but she had a Hotmail account and used to write up her college work on there and send it to herself.

I taught her everything she knows about computers and she still knows nothing. :lol:
