OpenOffice Files

If you crash and OO says it can only open Read Only, look for a .~lock(filename) file in the directory.   Remove it.

OO can automatically keep new chapters on right hand pages but the instructions are awful.  I posted a howto at

Just now I’m working with a customer with Vmware on RedHat – its networking config changed and screwed up everything.  Can’t get to work reliably.  Had to stop everything by killing processes.

What appeared to happen was that the interfaces switched:  what we had on vmnet0 went to vmnet3 and vice versa..  that confused every machine on the network.   Some had rebooted and were working but others were not and we didn’t want to reboot those so I had to fix vmware’s config..  all took about an hour.. annoying..
