Finally bought a fire extinguisher for the car yesterday *smirk*
Apr 24 2012 10:02am from zooerI would like but I can't think of it now.
I wish OO had the ability to print postal bar codes. There is another feature
I use it on my computers for basic Word Processing. My wife took her laptop over to a friends house becaues her friend didn't have Microsoft Office and wanted to type up something. They came back complaining about how difficult it was to setup tables, etc. compared to Microsoft Office and I had to explain to them that I've only ever used it to basically open up *.doc files from the web and that's about as far as it goes for me.
like tables, but you can't delete them afterwards. I've tried every
which way, short of disk-zapping the sectors containing the document
*sigh!* I miss GeoWrite. Why, oh why, couldn't the Linux folk just drop
the Microsoft way of doing things and adopt a _real_ flexible, easy to
use, *and* powerful document processing suite as their model instead?
Insert a table: Table-> Insert-> Table-> Enter table dementions.
Delete a table: Table-> Delete-> Table
the table and pressing backspace or DEL key (something you can do in MS
Office) doesn't work either.
If you just want to write documents and add/delete tables, use Lyx instead of some stupid Office Suite.

I may have to check that out. I don't need a whole Office suite.
I like dokuwiki with the edittable plugin:
latex tables are very inferior.
While we're on the Open Source...
As some of you know I've been voted on to the board of a rugby club. The video editing software licence is up for renewal, and we just don't have the money for it.
So does anyone know if there is a good video editor, which has some cool way of providing the coach with a way of analysing the game? I told the club that if anyone could find what we're looking for, it would be my good friends at UCG
I think several of the linux editors have some windows variant.
obviously there's the windows live moviemaker. You can slow down stuff with it and cut bits and pieces. I don't know what features you're looking for.
$60,000 so I am amazed with how cheap the software has gotten. Here is an el-cheapo mpeg1/2 editor:
http://www.womble.com/products/vcr.html which I used several years ago and it nothing more than a cut/paste, insert/delete no
OpenShot live DVD is a stand alone linux distro with a video editor. I am sure there are limitations.
It turns out tho' that the software the coach wants is a very complex thing, allowing tagging of players, and analytical tools, it's the kind of thing you might see during poat match play by play breakdowns during sports shows.
I'm thinking it's always going to be expensive
Heard about this BBS on FLOSS Weekly nice that the BBS scene still lives :)

Still listening to FLOSS weekly, and I had to revive by BBS past ;-)
OOH, it seems that Google login chewed utf-8 characters in my surname.
But it can smell nasty when mixed with gasoline, aluminum, steel and plastics.
And the other body parts.

I have never heard of this system before, but it looks cool.
