Nora now has NeoOffice!

Since the peculiarities of installing an old version of OpenOffice on Nora (my Apple laptop with the old OS) involved highly technical stuff I couldn't even begin to understand, and I didn't want to bother with trying, I looked into someone's mention of NeoOffice, which is like OpenOffice but is designed to work with my kind of laptop (without that stupid X11 POS).

Well, I installed NeoOffice and tested it, and it seems to be working. Even allows password protection, just like OpenOffice. Formatting seems okay, didn't crash like AbiWord does. So far so good!

(OMG, I just noticed something. Nora is the last four letters of Fayanora. I swear I didn't do that on purpose! "Fayanora" isn't "Faya nora," it's [by the rules of TPNN] "Fayan ora." Truthfully, here's how I got the name of my laptop: I needed a name for my laptop, and I wanted a human name this time because my PC is named Ahnai, but I rarely call her by that name, and there was this girl nearby at the time and someone said her name and it was Nora. Hence the name.)

A little bird told you...
