Just received an e-mail pointing to the ApacheCon EU template at
which is a
breathtaking 18 (eighteen) MB file! My AOO crashes constantly on that presentation "template"
on my
old Windows XP machine due to the size.

Obviously, someone who has no clues what s/he does used incredible sizes for some of the
(background) pictures creating such an abmysal presntation.

This is what one could do to resolve the issue:

  * unzip "ApacheEU_PPT_v2_ac.odp", switch into the "Pictures" subdirectory and load the two
    png-files that stand-out in that directory and resize them e.g. to 1024x768 pixel (fine
    1/10th of the size, size could be reduced even further).
  * zip all the files and subdirectory to a new "ApacheEU_PPT_v2_ac_sane.odp" file.

In my case I could reduce the size to two MB and AOO is happily processing it.

Though the design is extremely dark, so I wonder whether it would be o.k. to use one owns
template/design (carrying the AOO logo and the Apache feather)?
