In the extra's folders, the archive package 7zip had an issue when I
used the one on the DVD on a Win XP/pro laptop.  Something would not
let it install correctly.  When I download a fresh copy of the same
version, it installed with no problem.

I have updated the DVD file with the newly downloaded one.

I do not know why there was a problem, but it is not one now.

Hi Tim,

Excellent, let's see how far we can get the North American DVD project
moved along this weekend - I know you have been waiting on me.

Hopefully we will be finished with the DVD soon.

I will be handing out some papers to a meeting today, that I am attending. It will be just a printout of the index page of the web site. I also include my business card. That way by the next meeting, I hopefully will have a list of people who want a copy of the DVD. This meeting is actually a Historical Society meeting, but there is a large cross section of people there who are working in various businesses, local government, or retired. I hope to be able soon to drop off a copy or two to IT people at the local library system, governments [city and county seat less than 2 miles away], and a few businesses that I have dealt with before.
Note I've replied to the mailing list, in lieu of the CC names. Let's
use the mailing list and I'll see if I can get my tardy tasks wrapped up
and more information to the list as today goes on.
I saw your earlier email on finding a troublesome extension, odt2pml,
and removing that from the directory, and the HTML page.

I never needed to use any e-reader formats until I started to look into reader software for my old tablet PC. So when I installed it, there was a freezing issue. The Writer2ePub extension seems to work though. That may be the more used e-reader extension. There are others that are "only" for mobile devices, like iPad and phone types, but you need an external software like Calibre to convert to them. I still prefer TXT, HTML, or PDF formats for my book files, or maybe I am just use to them.
By chance did you check the bug tracking system(s) to see if that was
already reported - if not I don't mind, just to be sure: the freeze was
using Windows, yes? [I haven't tried it here yet, BTW]

No, the freeze was on Linux, so I did not want to try it on Windows. An eariler version [I think I remember] did work on Windows, but that was several years ago when it went in my list of extension in my OOo folder.

I did not check the tracking, since it was one of those Sun vs. Oracle deals where Oracle just took over the file and is not supporting it, yet. It is still under Sun's ownership, according to OOo's web site.
Thanks much,


ps - let's keep this thread to extensions, and I'll start another for
