One of the more tedious tasks the husband did, was take loooong (4000 lines or so) lists of data, paste them into Word, then delete the line-breaks, by hand.
OMG, that's slow. But one quick trick involving find-replace, that I discovered while reformatting texts I wouldn't want my mom to know about, reduces this process to about four find-replaces. Yay! Smut--it's good for business :)
