Actually I think this one is OK. But my experience in general is never
ever trust a projector to work the first time.

I've been to a conference in Melbourne where 50% of presenters were
having trouble with the supplied laptop, and were messing around with
their own laptop to no avail. It was a really shameful display of
disorganisation on the part of the presenters and the hosts. A problem
that could have been solved by installing OpenOffice on the Windows
laptop supplied. After all IT'S FREE DAMMIT!

Oh well ;) People will continue to embarass themselves, just don't risk
it happening to you.
