Old apps, new apps

I’ve had it! After months of wrangling with a stubborn printing problem that only affects my MacBook Pro (not any of the kids’ nor Mirella’s iMac) I am dropping OpenOffice in favor a Apple’ Pages who reads and writes .doc  but prints and saves in PDF as well.

Don’t say I haven’t tried ! I must have left posts in at least half a dozen OO support boards, but nobody else seems to have the same problem.

And I’ve started using Dropbox, a nice little app that allows you to share a folder with as many computers as you want; the client links to your account and mirrors the shared folder on each computer – an old-fashioned replica, no less – reminding me of when Ray, then at Groove, used to say it is on the edges (now he says it’s in the cloud).
