Doctor Who helped me pass Microsoft Powerpoint

Postby philipdalton on November 19th, 2010, 5:49 pm

I passed my Microsoft Powerpoint exam, and one of the projects I did for it was "The Ten Faces of Doctor Who", back in the days when it was ten.
The examiners were highly impressed with my work.
I was also a regular on tombaker.tv when that was still around.
With the Time Lords now destroyed, the Doc can now regenerate as many times as he wants to, whereas back in Tom's time it was only twelve.
Who knows how many Doctors we'll see.

It's a tool used to create presentations using Windows, using effects similar to those often shown on television. Look it up on Wikipedia or something to learn more.

Think Tom is personally responsible for a lot of people becoming computer programmers, scientests, and teachers (to name a few). After all, the Doctor was always showing and teaching and telling the folks he came across to do, grow, be.

Best,

Congratulations! Must be really easy to use the effects to do something fun. I was poking around those....

I just muddled about stringing slides together in order to help Si present his History of Musical Theater course. I did a simple slide show illustrating with photos and lyrics a song from "Seven Percent Solution" called the 'Madam's Song' or I Never Do Anything Twice". But I'm still at a loss how combine the music to the slides in Powerpoint. I was doing it manually, starting the music on cd and jumping to Powerpoint to start the slide show. I couldn't use any of the fades or effects because I needed time for people to follow along with the lyrics too.
