You have Microsoft Word? Otherwise, change the extension to .txt (right lick, choose Get Info, and change extension)

Step 1: Unplug all cords to your Mac.

Step 2: Put it in a box and drive to the tallest building you can find and go on the roof.

Step 3: Remove the Mac from the box.

Step 4: Throw it off the roof and watch it explode.

Step 5: Buy a PC

Did that help?

Alright I got two options for ya, no dl necessary.

First is the easiest:
Use google documents. docs.google.com you can upload your .doc file and it should be relatively readable :D

Second:
search online for a .doc to pdf converter. and then you can read it when it spits out a pdf for ya

I said somewhere up there that when i try to open .txt, it doesn't work.
same with .rtf, it brings up aim.
