Zamzar conversions

The MacObserver podcast mentioned an interesting site, Zamzar, which does conversion of all kinds of files. With video, it would take a while all told. I tried with a word processing file somebody sent me today which I couldn't open. Using a free account, it took half an hour before I got it back in .txt format (which I'd selected), but now I could read it (though it took a bit of formatting cleaning up).

Zamzar's great - I use it to convert odd files clients send to me as part of my freelance writing work. It's also a great site for making audio files into a format that'll work for a cell phone ringtone.
