I sent the slides yesterday to Shun, but his mail box rejected the 
document as being too big.

I tried to open it in OpenOffice, and it messed. Text colors being wrong 
mostly. Then, I thought I could open it as ppt and save it as pdf, but 
... powerpoint does not save stuff in pdf...

So... HELP ! :-)
Does someone have a mailbox accepting a powerpoint, to save it as odt or 
as pdf or anything suitable ? Kat, can you help on this ?
