Extending Star and Open Office

Ian Curtain wrote to me the other day in reply to a colleague that was trying to get up to speed on Openoffice BASIC and macros and offered the following sites as useful.

There is also the Open Office Wiki page as well. Hope you find them useful.

A day at home, a view of Brussels

I have been busy travelling the last couple of weeks and returned to my home office to do a pile of filing. You can see from my my del.icio.us feed some of the places I have been and also some stuff thats been on my desk waiting to be bookmarked or otherwise dealt with.

Over the weekend, I was looking at Firefox add-ons.

I was fortunate enough to stay at the Sofitel Europe in Brussels last week which was having a cheap week, or maybe day; it is close to my meeting's location, this is at the north end of the 'Place Jourdan', and the location of the finest chip shop in Bruxelles.

Using del.icio.us to find Flickr pictures

Did you know that if you bookmark a flickr picture at del.icio.us, that it posts a thumbnail into the HTML page of the del.icio.us feed.

I originally wrote, if you check my delicious HTML page out now, you can see what I mean, but I decided to upload the screenshot. I have however checked the RSS feed using Mozilla, RSS Owl and Bloglines, and it would seem that the picture is not propagated inside the RSS feed.

Follow my steps at del.icio.us (, or here)

Thanks to Jim Grisanzio who rendered his del.icio.us feed on his blog, using their link roll gadget. (You may need to log into del.icio.us to make it work).

I have implemented mine here in my sidebar panel, with a limit of 7, so you'll need to come to my HTML version of the page to see it. I need to work on the HTML style that the roll is published in, but I shall be amending my personal sites to use both this and the tags tool. Because I bookmark a lot of what I browse, by reading my del.icio.us feed (the hyperlink is in the sidebar), you can get some idea of what I am (or am planning) to do.

I was busy doing some DIY this weekend, so the new links at the moment are not based on the weekend's reading, which my monday links often are. I am considering assembling a computer of my own, which for thos of you who know me is a big step, so we have a few e-shopping sites that will sell me stuff, although these are not recommendations. I'm merely sharing my research.
