I Did It! I Did It!

I have been fooling with trying to get this sixty page new construction contract to go through to my underwriter for two days now.  Finally, I got it to go through this morning, and I knew I needed to share this discovery with you.  I thought I'd go ahead and throw one more tool you can use in this post as well.  Here I go again, spreading the love!  Check these two out and enjoy.

The first one is a file converter. If you have ever been stuck like I have with a silly pdf file that you desperately need to edit but can't because you only have the free version of Acrobat Reader, then this tool will be a gift from above for you too. It is so simple to use. The website is www.pdftoword.com and in 3 easy steps you can take that pesky pdf and turn it into a word file (either a doc or rich text). Once you complete the steps they email you the file. Easy as pie.

This next one is probably my favorite, and it is the one I used today. It is called WeTransfer (www.wetransfer.com). With this website you can transfer (as in email) files up to 2GB...yes Gigabytes! That is about 1300 songs on a ipod, 3000 photos, or 10,000 Word documents.  Like the other tool, this one is super simple. You visit the website and type in the recipient information and attach the files. So now you can send all those files at the same time...or that huge contract will go with ease.

Be sure to bookmark these two tools so that when you need them, you can easily find them.  After you use them, come back and tell me how awesome I am for sharing these with you.

Andy, yes, PDFtoWORD is one of the best FREE PDF converter. (There are some more available - not as good as this one.)

You can also use 'YouSendIt' and some other sites for file transfer.

Praful, thank you! I'll check out YouSendIt the next time I have to send that monster contract.
