OK, first of all, I know they are good for some things. Hooray.
What I rebel against is what I call the PDF mindset. Like when you have to send out a PDF when a simple JPG would do the same thing, but way back in the beginning some idiot said "we'll send you a PDF!" so now you have to send the PDF because "that's the way it's done".
I also hate clicking a link and not realizing it is going to take you to a PDF that will cause your browser to snap to attention and start popping up little windows and opening Acrobat and the little spinning ball of doom starts spinning and you're screwed!
DUDE! Check it out! I just figured out how to push an image down into text! If this thing actually shows up on the blog the way I am seeing it in the "dashboard".
So anyway, many times the information contained in the stupid PDF could just as easily have been presented as a regular web page. The U.S. government is REALLY bad about unnecessarily PDF-ing stuff.
BUT - like I said, SOME things are what PDF was made for. Like that functionsuite info. I just ditched the PDF without really thinking much about it , before I even understood what was going on. That is how much I hate PDFs.
Then Benny got all whiney about it, so I contacted Alison at functionsuite, and she sent me a link to a better site than the one I linked to Monday. She is also sending me a DVD thing that should contain lots of info to make Benny happy.
