I do enjoy giving talks, but I just don't know much about the technical
parts of computer science. Worse, such things don't really interest me;
I'm just a user.

I did some reformatting on my document to increase legibility and
saved it as a PDF. I'd be happy to send it to you or anyone else who
would like a copy.

I considered Rich's suggestions, but they don't interest me. The last
thing I want to do is create something for Youtube - a platform which I
find mostly annoying. Nowadays people put their 'how-to' information on
Youtube, and I find it impossible to figure out what they are talking
about. Why couldn't they just write it down? Oh wait ... maybe they
don't know how to write. Anyway, I don't want to be part of that crowd.

want to convert my work into a list of bullet points with no data or

The more I think about the way a lot of people expect to receive
information the more I think I ought to just make the PDF available to
those who want it, and forget about presentations.
