What are some other uses for PowerPoint?

on Sun Jan 28, 2018 4:03 pm
I'm cleaning out my laptop and finding some old PowerPoint files, and thought to myself . . . "I'm sure I'm not the only one who turns to PowerPoint for just about anything and everything." Here is an example of what I mean. I used PowerPoint to help me solve this puzzle. (I didn't make it very far afterwards, but had fun with this puzzle.)



What are some ways that you use PowerPoint that is odd or unique, even for us?

Darn!  It took me nearly two hours to solve this puzzle, and then I saw that the closing date was 31 January 2016!

The answer by the way is 42.

Regarding other uses for PowerPoint, I used to take photos of office Christmas parties and other occasions and then use PowerPoint to turn them into 'Photoons' as I called them (I claim copyright to this name!).

I would add animated call-outs and text to the photos and them distribute them by email around the office a few days after the event. These were done on PPT 2003 and before I discovered Triggers and Kiosk mode.

Here's an example from a Christmas 'do' in a London pub in 2004. (All the people here worked in the same work area):
