Al, I think I misread or misinterpreted what you wrote.  Do you really not
have a PC at the office?

That by itself seems archaic here in 2001.  Coupled with the fact that you
were criticized for substandard proposal presentations, it seems outrageous
that they do not want you to have access to a PC at the office.  Are you that

So you do all this at home?  On whose time?  Is your office at work a closet?
How do you post all your emails to the list?  AS/400 email?

In other posts, you spoke of management's reluctance to invest in tools to
help you do your job.

I don't know all the particulars of your situation, Al, so take this as a very
broad comment, but from what I see from your posts on the lists, your skill
set would be much more appreciated elsewhere.

-------------------------- Original Message --------------------------
One of the complaints is that my presentation materials for various proposals
are not as nice looking & clearly communicating concepts as my boss would
like me to use, but at the same time I do not have access to good quality
presentation tools at the office.  They want me to do my work from twinax
environment.  They do not want me to have access to PC at the office.

So I am using SEU at work & e-mail from home & scribble on web page reprints
& it does not really clearly communicate as technology is now able to help us

What I can work on is becoming less wordy & doing more abstract summaries in
front of proposals & delaying passing on proposals until they look more

One thing I might look into is if I can create via Word some text in HTML
format to be sent my boss, or other co-workers via e-mail attachment, such
that they click on some underlined link to get at the more detail only if
they want it.

I also need periodic review of what tools are commonplace to the end users
who are on PCs so that my attachments will be in a form that meshes well with
what they now have.
