The OpenOffice.org Users' Community Site

Filed under
News

A small group is discussing the formation of "The OpenOffice.org Users' Community" website along the lines of The Star Office Users' Portal. The site will include a forum and other services. The idea for the project emerged out of a very long thread discussing ways of dealing with some shortcomings of the present, main, English forum for OOo users.

The discussion is open to anyone willing to join. As well as the StarOffice users' portal, The Ubuntu Community looks like another good model. We do, I think, want our own "look". There is a blog spot which will contain reports on an irregular basis from the private discussions taking place.

The most important point. The public discussion is on another OOo support forum. If you want to join the discussion, please do so. If you have something, such as web design abilities, to contribute, please don't hold back.

LG's got a flip phone that runs Android Lollipop

Flip phones aren't just for retro hipsters and the elderly anymore... well, actually they kind of are. But they're super popular in Asia, and now you can get one that'll run the latest apps: LG's Gentle flip phone. The faux-leather adorned device is running a bleeding edge version of Android 5.1 Lollipop and packing 4G LTE. Otherwise, it's not exactly a power-user's dream with a 3.2-inch 480 x 320 screen, 3-megapixel rear camera, 4GB of (expandable) storage and 1GB of RAM. But for just 20 million won ($175) it would make a fine second phone, provided you live in Korea -- it's unlikely to come here, and similar flip phones can be pricey to import. Read more
