I'm a tech at a school district. This morning one of the asst superintendents told me that her 50 PAGE DOCTORAL DISSERTATION was on a .zip disk and now it's not opening correctly. She wants me to fix it. Yes she's a total retard, yes she should have saved it in 25 places, and yes this shouldn't really be my problem. But it is a good way to have her owe me forever, and I'd like that. So here goes... From what I understand, most of this was written on her laptop, an XP Pro machine with Office 97 (yeah, no shit). Apparently this was a 50 page document, and all of a sudden it's over 600 pages, mostly junk (see image). Some of the text is there, as you can see, but after page 20 or so, it's 500+ pages of those little squares. I've tried opening in Word 97, Work 2000, IE, Wordpad. All of it is junk. Any clues as to how I can fix this? As much as I'd love to laugh in her face as I tell her that her dissertation is gone, it'd be much better to have her owe me big time. Thanks.
