Simple Solution: Opening an Open Office File

Had a problem today. Had to open an Open Office document, but apparently, I already un-installed Open Office. My simple solution:

  1. Email the document to myself through my Gmail account.
  2. Open it as a Google document.
  3. Copy and paste to a new MS Word document or a notepad file.
  4. Save.

Google Chrome Challenge FAIL

No, no, no… Google Chrome is not an epic fail. But I am. While, I tried very hard to be faithful in using ONLY Google Chrome for seven straight days, I FAILED! I failed for some reasons:

  • because old WordPress versions (I think pre-2.6) are not compatible with Chrome.

Nonetheless, I am standing by Chrome and will be using it as my default browser. Here’s why:

Seven-Day Google Chrome Challenge
