Buffy. When I saw you stop the world from, you know, ending, I just assumed that was a big week for you. Turns out I suddenly find myself needing to know the plural of 'apocalypse.'

I've created a nifty slide show for the local Otter Lake church's 100th anniversary basically composed of a bunch of photos and church type piano music in the background. I have created this on a Windows platform, and the firehouse where it will play is on Mac of course. What format should I save it in? Will it run if I save it on a flash drive? Should I just see if they can hook up my laptop to their setup?

I've never actually done this before, but I am the person in town who "knows computer stuff", so you know how that goes. The choices in the software I am using are AVI, WMV, FLV, MP4, and MKV.

The Mac should be able to play an MP4 with no issues.

Always support bacteria. They're the only culture some people have.

I was sent a .BIN file ... I have no idea how to open or read it or do anything with it. I tried searching and it seems to be an outdated ... something. This was a file that was supposed to be a PDF - one of a bunch that were sent out and returned as PDFs and came with a different PDF. Any suggestions?
