New Text Book

I have been trying to search for a text book for my first class. It is very hard, but it is fun. But at the end of the day, I feel that the text book is in fact for myself more than for my students, as firstly I am not sure how many of them would buy it. And even if even if they would buy it, they might not read it. However, I would definitely read it myself and make the notes base on that. So it is a quick learning process for myself anyway. And it is fun. I read a book, and tell other people what is in the book, as my job. It is like turning a hobby into a job. Well, at least so far this is what a feel. Hope the real thing is at least 20% or more similar to what I am dreaming now…

OpenOffice.org

This article is written by the “Writer” module of OpenOffice.org. This is the first attempt for me to use the OpenOffice for a stupid reason. I’ve decided not to install the Microsoft Office in this computer anymore, and so that’s why I would have to use the OpenOffice. Frankly speaking I am a big fan of Microsoft, so I don’t really want to push myself to use the open source software. However, honestly after the try I must say that this software is reasonably well designed. As long as you are not using too much fancy formating stuff, then OpenOffice is a great alternative of the MS Office. The problem is, I have too many contents already built (usually not by myself) with fancy format. So I guess I have to finish the evaluation process and change quickly back to Bill Gates camp.
