what about open office.org,its free & works with MSO.

The cheapest I can see for Microsoft professional Plus is £38.95 from software4students software4students.co.uk/Mic…spx.

It may be worth considering open office or something similar which is free.

available for free from all the usual outlets :P

Hi i've pm'd you

I'm a student with Open Uni and use Open Office and have had no complaints about any of the formatting etc. As mentioned, Open Office is free.

if you work for the nhs I think you get a discount , if you work for bt (or know someone who does) it can be very cheap

I can't believe people are recommending Open Office. It's terrible. It's just so badly written, so buggy, and so cheap and nasty that it's unreal. I have tried using it a few times since I like the idea of free software, and each time it manages to amaze me with the sheer variety of bugs that it offers. How low do your standards have to be to think it's even usable?

it is usable, in fact very usable, I've not had any problems with it at all, the kids use if for school work etc & works fine with opening up Microsoft programs in it. I guess your computer is crap !

RM Basement is a similar site to software4students and has a great service too.

For the second today I'm noticing you are funny fanpages. I usually don't read your posts cos they're too long and my attention span is too short

OP, probably you're sorted.

Well, that remark would work, except this website is a server-side application so it's not actually running on my laptop, and to say it's made by professionals is really stretching the definition.

I think that was a compliment; thanks!

Are you saying I should concentrate on spontaneity instead of stamina?

Go for spontaneity. Any chance you'll ever stop signing off every post?

I would, but there doesn't seem much point. HUKD is a business first and foremost, so bugs that affect revenue are high priority, and the rest, they're really not that fussed about.
