Online Docx-Converter

Microsoft introduced a new file format in Microsoft Office 2007 called the Open Office XML Format or simply known as .docx. This file format is not compatible with the older versions of Microsoft Office (2003, 98, 97), OpenOffice, Lotus 123, or NeoOffice. Microsoft has made compatibility patches that can be installed in the older versions of Microsoft Office, so they will support the .docx format. But what if you are at someone else’s house or using a different computer and the person doesn’t have the patch?

Docx-Convert.com has made a converter for the .docx format with a user-friendly interface. It is very easy to use and it sends it to your email. They also offer a desktop version. It does get rid of some of the formatting and it gets saved in html and not .doc, but over all it does a nice job if you need it on the go.

To do a quick online conversion of your file:

  1. Click the Browse Button Below.
  2. Select your .docx File
  3. Enter your email
  4. Click “Convert It!”
  5. Check your email

Messenger Plus! v4.50

Messenger Plus

Messenger Plus! was finally released on December 9th after six months of creating the Windows Live Messenger Extension. The Messenger Plus! is integrated into your MSN messenger as an extension. It offers a wide variety of scripts like automated away message that can be added to your MSN. I personally think that MSN has come a long way, and that with the Messenger Plus! extension has become even better then Aim or any of the other messenger softwares offered.

If you decide to give it a try, after you download the extension you can browse and download the scripts that best suite your MSN as well as adding new skins to your messenger. Now you can tab your conversations under one window (vertically or horizontally) so you can have more space on your bar and better organization. And if you get tired of typing the same thing over and over then you can use the Quick Text feature that was added, which automatically enters the message with a simple short-cut key or typed command. Also, if you are a developer you have the chance to make your own scripts to be able to customize MSN the way you want it to be and share it with the public.
