So he started to work on these things, but by noon he was really frustrated.
I asked him, what's up?
He told me "Whatever I do - it doesn't change anything!"
I asked what he means with "nothing changes"?
He said "Well I change the title of the page, but the change doesn't show up in Google!"
So it turned out that he thought that any change he does shows up IMMEDIATELY in the Google index! I was stunned first, but then broke into laughter (which was probably not the most polite thing to do). Of course I explained to him how the concept of spidering the web works and after that he understood the whole issue. Nevertheless it was very insightful for me as well.
But instead of selecting "include fonts" when saving the PDF, I copied the font files together with the pdf file into a zip file and sent everything to the newspaper.

Recently had a moment where someone was tipped that their site content was duped. They selected a few sentences of text from their site and pasted them into the Google box. When 120,000 results returned, they panicked... 120,000 sites stealing my content?!
I suggested they put the text in quotes and try again
Turns out the site content was indeed duped. by 2 scrapers, not 120,000

"Don't ask to a delivery man to call his office, he is just a newbie delivery man"
While we were waiting for the delivery man to come, his office called us asking for him. The guy arrived few minutes later.
"Your office has called, you can take a seat here and call them back"
So the guy took a seat on the chair looking strangely at the phone. The phone was the old-type of phone, the one that our grannies used to have, with the handset and the noisy numbered wheel. After a while - I though he was trying to remember the number of his office - he dialed the number on the wheel without picking the handset. We were all laughing behind our desk. After completed the number, he was stupidly waiting for somebody to speak.
I had never seen that before and had a big laugh in front of him while one of my colleague was nicely explaining him how to use a phone.
