Die, Redmondian Scum...

The Fifteen-Year-Old is upstairs writing an essay using Microsoft Word. I open Excel, and am told that I cannot do so: that my copy of Microsoft *Office* is already in use on the LAN. It seems that I do not have one license to use Word, one license to use Excel, and one license to use Powerpoint--I just have one license to use *Office*.

Time to see if the spreadsheet will open in NeoOffice/J... It will! I'm free! I'm free!
