PDF's...Without the Expense
If your business or organization needs to share information via the Internet that everyone can view, then the .pdf format that can be read with the free Adobe Acrobat Reader is the way to go.  However, the software needed to create those .pdf documents is often out of range of a small business or not-for-profit budget.  Here are some free or low-cost alternatives.

Measuring Up
How do you estimate distance when you don't have a ruler or tape measure handy?  Try this easy reference tip:
A dollar bill is approximately 6" or 1/2 foot lengthwise (6.25" to be exact") - you can use this to approximate a measurement.
