PSA for parents
Today at the playground I learned of a gruesome injury that ER staff call "slide leg". When a parent and little kid go down a slide together, and the little kid gets their leg caught on something, the extra momentum from the parent's big body can cause the leg to...well...let's just say today we met a 2 year-old boy with a full leg cast, a victim of "slide leg", and the story sounded indeed quite gruesome.
Kiddo generally only goes down the slide solo, anyway, but now I'll be quite strict about that.
I think there's a great deal to be said in favour of the model of a timesharing system with terminals, but that it works best if (a) the admins are known to, & responsible to the users ; & (b) the terminals are made to be durable & supported for a long time.
Definitely the situation we have now is not like that at all.

Sir Ian, Oscar-nominated as the coach in Chariots of Fire, also played the android Ash in the 1979's Alien."
Blessings on the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. May He have mercy on us all.
My radio show on #aNONradio starts in 30 minutes. It's called "Movement Through Thought", and it's live every Friday from 06:00 to 07:00 UTC (that's Thursday 11:00 PM PDT).
I haven't been listening to as much music as usual over the last week, so I threw together another ~130 BPM #electro set for tonight. I'll be featuring tracks by Grammar Of Movement, Sbles3plex, Scan 7, and Underground Resistance.

I'm a bit sad that you never used open/libre office before. It's hard to believe. I've had *every* business IT shop I had as a client using it for many years now.
It's not just 'compatible', it's BETTER!
Try 'Draw' and using connectors - it's fun! :-) Visio is for people with money they need to throw away - same as the ones who use microsoft and apple. Seriously though, I've *never* found a client or fellow human who *needed* ms-office for *anything*. Not once.
