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.
Well good luck, hoping that many want to give it a try. I'll use the
time to be sure the copy of the files I have match up to what is on the
server there, this moment - I think I'm out of synch.

Would you want me to send zipped files of all the files/folders that is currently on the domain? It would be quicker than trying to download every file one at a time. Of course, you should have FTP access to the files. I think I did give that access to you. Every time I think I am "out of sync", I just download, via FTP client, the whole site back to my local drive.
You remind me that I've planned for what seems like weeks, but is
actually turning into Months to speak with the owners of a couple of
independent comp. shops in the county. The fellow in my town asked about
this, he put OpenOffice on all his machines for years, bought a cable
from him right after LibO happened and he mentioned the Chamber of
Commerce breakfast meeting, really doesn't have to do with a disc, more
the brochure I think..anyway I digress ;-)

That is how it is done. Casual conversations about one thing or another, then LibreOffice is mentioned. Elmira's city computers all currently use free graphic packages, so the IT person told me a few years ago. Since they use a free package for one or more of their needs, I think they might be willing to give a free office suite a try. The why pay a fee when you can get an office suite for free, that is as good or better than the one your are using now. Then every time that have to replace a "broken" or "too old" computer, LibreOffice will save them the fee to purchase MSO.
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.
Started using Calibre myself a while back, with OO.o - it's a good tool
IMO and with the change to mobile devices it makes a lot of sense, again

Does Calibre have an extension for OOo/LO? I have not really used it yet. I do have a sister that was "big" on getting an e-reader and e-books instead of paper versions. I started looking for free books for her back then, but never dealt much with it myself.
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.
Alright - I'll give it a try here, and check the bug trackers, will let
you know.

Thanks again,
