You must be very bendy.
Perhaps you could go fuck yourself?
Yup, grant crankiness time. As part of the current grant application, I need to assemble details of every grant currently held and applied for by all eight of the PIs - title, dates, source, amount, PI and co-applicants, % effort for all investigators, goals, and % overlap with the current proposal. There are a grand total of 53 grants - oh the joys of working with bigshots! I then need to assemble this list into a PDF which is also to include the abstract of every grant, in the same order as in the list of grant details.
Combining the 54 PDFs is a real barrel of laughs. My computer is old and grumpy at the best of times, and doesn't take too kindly to opening multiple files. Plus of course Acrobat only lets you open a certain number of files at once. So I have to batch them.
Now, being an organised sort of person, I give all my files and folders very logical names. Wouldn't you think that Acrobat would recognise this logic and list my files in the right order?
Well, you'd think wrong. Every time I start to combine a batch of PDFs, I get a list of open files that looks something like this:
and have to manually drag the files into the right order.
I really could do without this kind of thing.
