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.)

I love naming stuff. My camera is Helios. I haven't named the laptop yet.

My cellphone doesn't have a name after three years, despite being quirky enough for one now. One of the buttons takes a lot of force to depress these days. I wish it were that hard to depress me.

Sounds temperamental. Name it Randy Orton.

He's the wounded, dark, misunderstood man of wrestling. But like most of those types he is a whiny asshole looking to transfer responsibility and take/be given everything. He has issues and everyone needs to be understanding while he has his thug friends steal matches, suffers bouts of anxiety in the ring (once last night Cena leaped from the ring, preceding Randy doing the same AGAIN... chased him in circles... because he kept going down the isle to sulk).

They had to make special rules so he could lose the belt fairly. Which were that if he has friends interfere on his behalf, he loses automatically. Cena took him down!

I don't follow wrestling, so I didn't know any of that. "Professional wrestling," IMHO, is not a sport.

Your subconscious may have liked the name Nora, because it is similar to Fayanora, even without you consciously noticing it. I've read that people tend to have a fondness for their own names which affects how they much like other words containing the same letters.

Tiamat, now that's a good name. :-)

My PC is named "Ahnai." Means "Sacred" in TPNN. My first computer was named Frankie, since he was a Frankenputer.

My first car was a Pontiac Sunbird, so s/he was Sunny. My second car was a Dodge. Dodge's symbol is a ram, which made me think of megs of RAM, so she became Meg.
