Civility in critiquing the ideas of others is no vice. Rudeness in defending your own ideas is no virtue.

John McCain was asked yesterday how many houses he had, and he couldn't (or perhaps wouldn't) answer.  Totally aside from the irony of McCain trying to cast Obama as the elitist, I am wondering what it would be like to have too many houses to be sure how many you have.

Alas, I think it would just mean I could never find the key for the one I was at.  Perhaps I'd better stick to just one house... and make sure my wife has a key when we go out.

In a post called Just the vector, Viktor...a whole lot of them, Rob Novak mentions that he and his crew need to create resumés for a client, and, as he says,
I last wrote a resume in 1993 using PFS: First Choice on the laptop provided for my first Masters' degree.
Daniel Lieber commented that his last resumé was written in Ami Pro 3.  This got me to thinking...

When did you least create or update your resumé?  (Hint: If it was last week and your current employer doesn't know, you might want to ignore that one)

What software or format did you use?

I'd be interested in hearing people's answers.  I created my last resumé in 1997, or possibly 1998, using DeScribe 5.0 under OS/2, and I am pretty sure I then printed it out.  I don't remember what the data format was.  The one before that I actually typed on a typewriter (cringe).

How about you? Anybody use ODF?  OOXML?
