Yay! I can work on Word file now on my new notebook! :)
Thanks to my tech-savvy friend Adrian who introduced the Open Office installation to me (and helped me install), I have solved the dilemma of whether to buy an expensive Microsoft Office software or a cheap but illegal copy in the pirate market!
I don't have to worry.. This is perfectly legal and best of all it's FREE!
Of course, it is not exactly like MS Word as i have to choose the specific Open Office application to open the file to work on it.. but once I'm in, it's no difference from a normal MS Word application to me.. Except I don't think I can create a Word document with this appllication but it's ok.. I can always start a Word document in a thumb drive from my pc at home and then continue to work on my notebook.
And it means.. I can actually work on my book already on my notebook!
Except this weekend and coming week is going to be really busy for me - a few assignments and deadlines and also standing in for worship leading and helping a friend's church wedding coordination..
Whatever it is though.. now it is `all system go' for me to really work on my book. :)
