After a long time i am updating my blog, i had no interesting stuffs to amaze u, sry..

Today i was in a very critical situation, i had no Adobe pdf reader and i was to view a pdf document within few moments, i was searching in google for this viewer. After a few seconds there was a couple of adobe pdf viewers getting downloaded...65 mb. Then i thought for a moment, the best way to view a document is to convert it in to HTML and view it with the help of my browser. Now the search is for the convertor to convert my pdf to HTML..Again it was the same google, now in search of a convertor...6 mb.

then, i was thinkin for a moment and an awesome idea striked me...we have our gmail and why the hell are we in search of convertors??...then the next few things which i did was...(this is for the one who dont hav gmail id also)

1. Compose a new message in GMail. (If you are still without a GMail account, plz send me ur mail id)

2. Attach any PDF or Word document that you want to convert to HTML You can attach multiple files in this step by clicking Attach another File.

3. Enter your own email address in the To: box and click send.

4. You instantly receive a message in your GMail Inbox folder. Open the message and click the "View as HTML" link next to your attachment.

5. The contents of your attachment appear as HTML in a new browser window without having to download the file. When you're finished reading the attached file, close the new browser window to return to Gmail or Save the file to your harddrive.

when i searched on de net on what type of files the google can convert, i found out that it can
show the following types of files as HTML: .pdf, .doc, .xls, .ppt, .rtf, .sxw, .sxc, .sxi, .sdw, .sdc, .sdd, and .wml.

wow....thanks to google for viewing my pdf in seconds...
