Vixy: A cool online converter

Anytime I find cool free open source software, I try and highlight it on my blog. As such, I was reading an interesting article posted by Stephen Downes and low and behold he provided a post about Vixy. I am not going to attempt to out write Stephen or Gunnar Schwede so I will use their words. They write:

Various Authors, Farside Inc., March 7, 2007. [Link] The link he mentions, in case you didn’t follow the above hypertext is

This online converter looks very promising and I plan on using it tomorrow. I have some files that I can’t wait to convert. I’m sure with Stephen's endorsement it will do a more than satisfactory job of converting the aforementioned files. I just hope it lasts. Enjoy!
