Public transport these days

Posted by Treg in General

Using the public transport in Brussels ‘s very hard this week.
Monday a bus driver drove his bus into a traffic-jam AND an open dedicated bus road was available (we did 400m in 20 minutes)! Tuesday some dudes decided to drop their can of red paint and painted the inside of the tram. It’s quite normal that buses are driving up to 40 minutes too late these days.
And on the moment you think you ‘ve seen it all, there ‘s somebody who breaks down the doors of a driving bus and jumps out. 😮

OpenOffice 2.0 released

Posted by Treg in General

It took a while, but now the waiting is over: OpenOffice 2.0 (stable) is a fact!

Of course this release offers some important improvements compared with the first version. The most important new features are the new userinterface (with native widget integration) and the introduction of the database component. OpenOffice uses now standard the OpenDocument format to save it’s documents.

You can download this software for free from their servers.

I ‘m trying to test it this evening, time is the limit these days. 🙂
