problem with a DO file
« on: February 04, 2013, 08:40 PM »
I need a software that can view and print DO files.  I know Adobe Reader will do it but I don't want to download the darn thing when I am going to only use it one time.  Is there anything else that will read and print this file?  I'm not finding anything on search.

Well, from what I know an .DO file is actually a Java file which the average computer user shouldn't be able to see.  You could possibly open it on a web browser like IE 8.

Idiot Social Security has the DO as a download.  I wanted a letter with benefit summary.  They gave me a DO file to download which I thought was very weird.  I was expecting a PDF at least or some other form of document file.   I get a .DO...  :o  So now I have this on my computer and I have no blanking clue what to do with it.

And those idiots tell me to print it out when I need it...    :o  WITH WHAT?  Honestly I forgot what the Gov is like.

Yeah, I get your pain most people who work within the Government sector are complete idiots and have no idea how to use modern technology.

Complete idiots who think a 5.25 Floppy is high tech...  >:(

I'm still trying to figure out why on earth they would give you a letter as a .DO file.  It makes no sense what so ever   Well yeah it does.  Back when I was in the the Navy and we were programming, I pointed out that they needed 4 places on the year in a date. I got told Noooo we don't.  And we all know what fuss that caused at the end of the century.  I mean really why fix it in the 70s as you write the programs  when you can wait 30 years and have mass hysteria.

Yeah, I know what you mean!  I remember all that Y2K bug problem, and everybody was like civilisation as we know it is going to end!  We are going back to the stone age, time learn how to start a fire by hand  :D  I never understood why they didn't just program the year column in the date with 4 digits instead of 2!

Now you know.  Because when the Gov programmers said "Don't we need 4 digits?"  They were told NO, you only need 2.

The best of Gov thinking.   :D
