Don't you be givin' me none of that bull...

Posted on October 27, 2006 by Sarah Eaton.

So, it's been around for a couple of years, and you might be all like, "Yawn, big deal" or whatever, but I love Bullfighter

It's this program that measures your communications in Word, PowerPoint and Outlook for bullsh*t.  With the press of a button, it scans your document, and then gives you a readout and score.  It singles out jargon (although not IT-related jargon seemingly--this sentence passed with flying colors:

The IRQ of your PCMCIA WiFi card is conflicting with your USB port; just use a CAT-5 Ethernet cable with an RJ45 connector to an ADSL router and then go to TuCows to download a driver update.  Be sure to turn on download privileges on the OS and gateway firewalls, plus your SPAM and Trojan filters.  (Or maybe just tell your Network Administrator to do it for you?))

Anyway, it measures sentence length and word length and pulls out buzzwords that you use/overuse/misuse.

I've been Bullfighting all day, and I tend to score pretty well; my highest score, though, came on a personal email.

Here's my score for this entry: 9.2 and certified bull-free!
