Just a little poem. Iโ€™m having a shitty day.

The Weight

The Weight on my soul
Is overwhelming.
The weight on my mind
precludes contentment.
My life has become,
A series of increasingly
More serious follies.
Which have cast me
Into dark despondency.
No tunnels for the light.
No direction.
No Hope.
Then I trip again,
never able,
to stand.

Free office suite?

โ€œOpenOffice.org is the single largest open source application available, and it is huge. To go through all the available features would require a monthโ€™s worth of articles. Suffice it to say that, if you can do it in Microsoft Office, you can do it in OpenOffice.orgโ€“for free.

From installation to use, OpenOffice.org is a valid stand-in for Microsoft Office for anyone looking to save a great deal of money. If youโ€™re confident that your users fall into the category of those who use only 5 percent of Microsoft Officeโ€™s feature set (a majority of the computing world), making the switch to OpenOffice.org shouldnโ€™t be a problem. If, however, you know you have users who must exchange embedded objects with Microsoft Office users, your best bet is to stick with Microsoft Office until the gents at OpenOffice.org are able to get their suite to play well with Microsoft Object linking and embedding (OLE).โ€

I have this installed (Windows 2000) and it seems like a contender. I wish it had the equivalent of Outlook, my only complaint. Otherwise I play with it awhile and let you know how it stacked up.

Update: Updated open office link. (Dec. 2013)
