Subject: Why Is Google Not Supporting The Open Document Formats?

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

None of Google services - Android, Chrome OS, Google Drive support Open Document Formats. I am left with puzzling questions why is Google not supporting ODF and locking users into an incompatible and vendor-locked OOXML format? Will Google endorse open standards and Open Document Formats or its users will be forced to use Microsoft's OOXML? I

The Google Street View Van came to my neighborhood!

Who wants to buy my house?

The funny thing is, that tree right in the foreground in front of the fence, blew down (taking out the fence) during Hurricane Sandy ... which means the photos were taken before 2012-oct-22 , but they just went online recently.

The pictures do take a while from the time of taken to the time they are published. Several years ago I followed
the Google car giving it the middle finger so my car would not appear in street view. I happened to look out the
window one morning and saw the google car driving down my street so my car appeared on street view anyway. I
saw it by my parents house as well, they are now mapping the less populated areas.

Yup, that's the Mouse House :) It's on a quarter acre (about 1011 square meters) and most of the open space is in the front where you see it in the photo.

What is the strange blob between the yards on the fence line and the road?  It looks like an ewok wrapped up in a blanket.

Aha!  It moves with the picture.  A leaf got stuck to the camera.

Using street view, if you head south on Congress Ave starting at the corner of Forest Hill Blvd and Congress
Ave in West Palm Beach Florida there seems to be a tree branch attached to the Google car.

I would also like to say good morning to Google and the NSA, and a great big thanks for making us safer and more
secure.

Also available is this [ http://goo.gl/evNA0 ] lovely property, which was abandoned by its owner. The story around the neighborhood is that she got married to someone in another country and simply left her house behind, since the mortgage was underwater anyway.

The power line got knocked down by a tree during "snowtober" in October 2011, and hasn't been restored since then. Windows have been broken too. The house is likely to be full of mold and needs to be torn down.

Most people don't know much about Dionysius Thrax, a Hellenistic grammarian (thus a Grecian grammarian). He wrote Art of Grammar, which like most Greeks works, will keep you in your seat until the very end.

Similarly, other grammarians have graced our history, but I don't think we've found anThrax like grammarian since the fall of Greece as a world power.

Oh dear...

Speaking of strange houses, when the housing market was at its peak, this place was going for $200,000
http://goo.gl/j7ilG
Yes, that shed looking place and the property. No it is not part of the property to either side.

With the new google maps it gives the month and date of the image at the bottom of the screen.
For the image of Ignat's house it says "Image capture: Sep 2012"

I shouldn't have written "going for" I should have written the owner was asking $200,000.

Even when there was someone living there, there was no grass. The entire front yard was covered with hezbollah ... er, I mean pachysandra. And I suppose the abandoned car is fully paid up because the repo man hasn't come to get it yet.

Not that I would want that car anyway; the inside of it is probably more unhealthy than a dirty bomb at this point.

Heh. Leave it to fleeb to come up with the most elaborate setup to this type of gag :)
