The eternal question
- I sit right outside my boss Kathy's office. What follows is a notable case of a typical day:
- Coworker: Is she around?
- Me: [glancing in her empty office] No?
- Coworker: Well, I know she's not there.... I just meant, around the office.
- Me: [in my dream world] So what was the question?
- Me: [in reality] Oh, well, I don't know.
- Can everyone just stop asking now?

My experience with OpenOffice has been disappointing (I still have to claim that Microsoft Office is better), but yeah, it’s not a matter of OpenOffice having more problems, just different ones.
