OpenOffice 1.1 released. I tried out 1.0 way back when and found it to pretty useful in some situations. Unfortunately I couldn’t really replace Office with it because so much of what I do is in Access and Open Office doesn’t have a database component, relying instead on a somewhat difficult to configure interface with MySQL. (at least it was difficult for me as compared to using Access.) I do like the fact that 1.1 is coming with DocBook XML import/export. That’s kinda cool. (link via Josh)
Meanwhile, over at Just Another Geek’s Blog he’s playing with the new keyboard for his Axim. I haven’t gotten a keyboard for mine yet, mostly because I rarely use it for typing up emails or doing major writing, but it does look pretty cool. At this point in my usage, I do most of my typing on the laptop that syncs with the Axim and the Axim becomes more for having information (maps, notes, appointments, checking account balance, etc.) with me as I go along as opposed to inputting information. Of course that’s just me, and the way I use it, your mileage probably will vary.
It’s the first, so I’m currently awaiting the accounting department’s OK to run their month-end stuff. (They need to run some reports before I run the month end modifications to the database, stuff like dropping unpaid accounts, etc.) So that’ll keep me busy today. 🙂
