Idle thoughts until the glacier recedes from Cedar Rapids

CutePDF Writer is a nifty bit of GPL freeware that lets you print to PDF under Windows XP, and now it works with Vista too. Finally! Open Control Panel → Printers and right-click on CutePDF Printer to make it the default. I deleted the Microsoft PSX (whatever) printer, which I personally found offensively condescending, arrogant and actually (as opposed to virtually) useless.

Note that you'll need the "free converter" too, probably, to install GhostScript 8.15 Light on your machine. It's an easy install, but the installer dialog box simply vanishes when it's done. No gnus is good gnus, I gnuess.
