Open Office.org

You have probably heard of it by now, but if not, you should try using OpenOffice.org. It is an office suite like Microsoft Office, but it is open source.

I like it because I like supporting open source projects, and I like alternatives to Microsoft. OpenOffice is FREE. I like quality free software.

OpenOffice.org is mostly compatible with MS Office documents (ie, you can open documents made in MS Office, and save documents in MS Office format). I say mostly compatible because nobody knows what the MS Offics formats are. Even Microsoft Office documents themselves are not compatible with other versions of themselves.

Anyways, it is a neat thing they got going on. Go to there website and download the application suite and give it a whirl.

Air Guitar a Reality


The Virtual Air Guitar project, developed at the Helsinki University of Technology, adds genuine electric guitar sounds to the passionately played air guitar.

Using a computer to monitor the hand movements of a "player", the system adds riffs and licks to match frantic mid-air finger work. By responding instantly to a wide variety of gestures it promises to turn even the least musically gifted air guitarist to a virtual fret board virtuoso.


Air guitarists’ rock dreams come true

I am sure it is pretty limited at this point, but it is a neat concept.
