First, I’m a big fan of Open Source software. I use a lot of OSS in my daily life, for example, I both regularly use and swap between the OpenOffice and LibreOffice office suites. But why swap? Well after getting sick of the grammar checker and a few other little irritants in OpenOffice, I recently switched back to using the megabyte-massive LibreOffice. Word count in status-bar and a seemingly better grammar checker: BRILLIANTO, until I had to export a file to .pdf format. Then CRASH-bang-wallop: the app hung like Billy Bunter doing the Tyburn swing. I do wish the devs would sort minor things like this out before releasing software. Of course, not all Open Source software is bug-ridden, but, there does seem to be a tendency with OS devs to not bother fixing bugs. I’m back to using OpenOffice (again).

“Doctor… Who? Pah! I am the Captain! Sherbet lemon? Now step into my wardrobe. What? Yes, of course it’s smaller on the inside you blithering idiot!”—The Captain!
“There’s Ed, Op Ed, Op, and then there’s this blog.”—The Captain!
“Well done son, keep it up!”—The Captain’s Mum
“People will think you’re a nerd.”—The Captain’s Dad
“I hate this!”—vox populi
“I don’t care.”—The Captain!
“Who the Hell is the Captain anyway?”—Roy Mathur
“The Captain is not an adventurer, rock star and supervillain with a penchant for G&Ts, C7H10N4O2 and insanely loud music. His exploits do not usually involve arriving just in time to save the multiverse (or thoroughly bugger it up) in a Vimana shaped like a wardrobe. And, contrary to the wanted posters, he is certainly not a multi-tentacled cyborg from the 27th dimension.”—Anonymous
“Finally an honest review…great!”—Shayne T. Wright
