Open Office is dead!

Open Office seems to be dead now. This most useful (and free) Office software seems to have been axed by Oracle and become an 'Apache Incubator Project.' (Whatever that actually means???) Fortunately though, a bunch of developers known as The Document Foundation seem to have revived the project as 'Libre Office.'

Libre Office seems to have all the same apps as Open Office had, and it's still just as good value too. (I.e. it's free to download).
Version 3.4 is available from The Document Foundation website here.

So 'Writer' is still my Word Processor of choice for FREE storyboard layout software.

Pictures Of Turkey


Here are a few 'artsy' photos from our recent family holiday in Cirali on the South Coast of Turkey. All of these were taken with my Canon 600D camera, some with the 18-55mm kit lens and many with my new Tokina 11-16mm wide angle zoom ... Keen-eyed readers should be able to spot these ones.
