RE: slide presentation

From:"Mottishaw, Brad"

I just finished with the Association of Clinical Scientists annual
conference in Salt Lake City, Utah and we had no problems using Powerpoing
with any of our presentations.  I Function there was to be the application
and hardware support for all of the scientists presenting.  There were 80
presenters in 3 days and the only hitches that we had were with Ektachrome
slides.  I utilized a Pentium 2 Laptop and had very little problem with load
times.  If it was a huge graphic it may have taken a little longer but the
feedback that was received from the presenters there was all very positive
regarding the audio/visual presentations.
	The only recomendations that I would give are:
	a.  Load the presentations onto the hard drive of the computer being
used, do not use a CD-ROM. This will speed up load times.
	b.  Use the fastest computer available to you to speed up the load

I hope this is of some help,

This is why I still use Ektachromes in a slide carousel.
