this adidas website is really pissing me off now. the doubles results has gone from a .pdf version to a powerpoint .ppt version. how ridiculous. :fiery: i don't have powerpoint.

anyone know if Rennae/Conchita won or have even played their first match yet?

:devil:

it's ironic. it's very simple just to add it to add the results to the website in .html format. more tricky and (annoying for the browser) is .pdf, and even more far-fetched are grossly annoying is powerpoint. what next? what a pile of shite.

My profs don't even like power point - they all use it but bitch about it :D

that's more likely due to stupidity than anything else.

They probably do the results in power point and they use Adobe Acrobat to convert the output the .pdf.

Some idiot might have uploaded the wrong file :rolleyes:

there are ways to make a power point (or excel, or any MS Office file) work on a website but I don't think it's beyond their reach.

How hard is it for them to post postmatch scores?

pfff! This website gets funnier everyday! Powerpoint.... I use it at work for presentations! It's so basic to just update a website! The website was created by IMG of London according to the thing at the bottom of the page!

It's a shocker. I reckon in this day and age the average high school student could have done a better job as a summer project!
