If you are an owner of WordPerfect, and hate the idea of having to either
drag an MS Word file onto wordperfect to open it, or if you are an MSWord
owner and hate to have to do the same thing with a WordPerfect file, then
this little applescript droplet is for you!

Drop any number of WordPerfect/MSWord documents onto this Applescript
droplet and then double click on the document and then your favorite
WordProcessor will open them up!

Please post any comments/suggestions to anbrown@husc.harvard.edu

There have been some discussions about TimesTwo in the last few days and
here's my impression of the product (I originally intended to comment on
the product earlier but a project deadline kept me from doing this):

First of all, for those of you not familiar with the product, TimesTwo is a
HD formatter which replaces the existing SCSI driver with a driver that
does compression and decompression as data are written and read from the
disk. Since it's operating at the driver level and nearly all programs talk
to the HD through the driver, everything gets "compressed", and
theorectically, this process should be totally transparent (not so with any
other types of compression programs) and there should be no compatibility
problem with those programs (provided the driver is bug-free, of course).

In reality, however, this's not entirely the case (all softwares have bugs
- bug-free softwares are just not humanly possible), although TimesTwo does
fulfill most of its promises. Once installed correctly, TimesTwo does work
