self-publishing using LO Writer. I'm selling it through Lulu, but I'm
also making the PDF available free (donation requested) on my website.
That's great news. Now if only someone could write a useful book on getting Libreoffice BASE to do anything but lock up and die. I've tried several times to make a simple recipe DB, first with an external MySQL back end, then with it's own internal files.
No one has been able to produce a working copy of a BASE project that I can download and examine and/or use as a template to develop my own. I've asked for that several times with no response. The BASE handbook is a great primer on basic DB design concepts but practically useless when I comes to actually building a working DB using BASE.
Please don't take my comment as disparaging the fine work that the Libreoffice team has done. I love Libreoffice and I install it on all my friends machines when given the opportunity. I'm just very disappointed with BASE.
