The YIELDDISC formula can be found in OpenOffice, which is a free office suite to be found at http://www.openoffice.orgIt's a massively large download, 104MB. So it's easier to buy the CD from various sources, which generally isn't much more than the cost of shipping. Open Office is multi-language and multi-platform. So it can be run under any OS in any country (unless you're living some place truly obscure). Alternatively, if you don't want to do the download and installation, if you have a computer recycling center in your community that has been commandeered by the geeks, you might be able to buy a rebuilt computer running some version of Linux with Open Office already installed. Here in Portland, the Freek Boxes, as they are called, are being built using PIII-866 CPU's, 192MB RAM, etc. etc., loaded with a distro such as Debian, and apps like OpenOffice, etc. and are typically are being sold for under $50 bucks, with 17" monitors costing another $25 or so. CHEAP, CHEAP, CHEAP! (Check 'em out at www.freegeek.org)Making the transition from Windows to Linux can be a bit ackward. But I'm typing this on my Linux box. So it's quite possbile to do all the things with a Linux OS that you are accustomed to do using Microsoft products, but at a fraction of the monetary and security costs.Charlie
