Have to get this off my head.

Today I've spent 4 1/2 hours on installing Windows and 35 minutes on Linux. Plus 4 hours in vain on a couple Zyxel USG 50 Routers setting up a VPN connection. Result = no worky!

As I had this nice ACER AspireONE netbook I wanted it to run my usual flavor of Linux the Debian 6 Squeeze. So today I had some time to spend over lunch. It was a bit of fumbling until I had a bootable USB stick. Three attempts and 2 hours the other day until I...

OOo/LibreOffice Calc BASIC: cell display orientation/rotation

Posted 05-18-2012 at 01:45 AM by catkin

There are incorrect examples on the internet of using OOo/LibreOffice BASIC to set Calc cell contents to display vertically, the same as can be done interactively via Format Cell -> Alignment -> Text Orientation and setting the angle to 90 degrees.

The problem is that they show 90 but the units are 1/100ths of a degree so vertical requires 9000.

It uses libcsv for parsing, so it should be very liberal about the exacting formatting of the CSV file.

Functionality is rudimentary, and the file system is currently read only. But alpha...

Puppy Log

Been a big fan of Puppy Linux for many years, having a bootable USB stick in your pocket in the IT game is a very handy thing. When I got a new work laptop (ooooooh!) my Puppy stick broke due to drivers and time for an upgrade. Oh work laptop is a Dell E5420, nothing special but not bad either.

After a bit of a search in the forums someone suggested I try Precise Puppy 5.3 and I was mighty impressed, both the LAN and WI-FI worked, yey! I am not sure how mainstream Precise is as a...
