Zamzar - Free online file conversion

This is one of those “why didn’t I think of it first?” ideas. Zamzar is a free web site where you can upload a file, select a compatible format, and it will email you the converted file.

It’s great for times when you can’t open a file because you don’t have the right application installed on your computer. You can also use it to convert files to Acrobat .PDF format.

Zamzar is simple, easy to use, very useful, and free. What more could you ask for? (Well, actually it would be nice if you could immediately download the converted file from their web site without having to wait to receive the email. But I suppose the reason they’ve implemented it this way is because it would be too hard to keep up with the demand in real time.)
