Hi Mike,
You started quite a thread! I believe I've answered them, at least for this round.

Thanks y'all. ;> If you have the 5.2 book you see the dedication from my (married with children) coworker to his wife: "To Lila: It'll never happen again." So he didn't do it anymore. It's a fair amount of work, definitely along the lines of that inspiration/perspiration ratio, but now that I'm on my own just doing this and training and contracting, it's a lot more fun. (Not working in Sun Ed 8 hours a day helps, of course.)

Anytime! Just a few notes on the StarOffice 6.0 book vs the OpenOffice.org 1.0 Resource Kit:
Basically the same book, minor differences. (But if you have StarOffice at work and OOo at home, it's not impossible you'd need both. ;> )
OpenOffice book has the CD in it, lots of goodies.
There is no longer a picture of a naked guy in the OpenOffice book but it's in the StarOffice book.
We have not been sued for references to a sample company called SadisTech in Redmond Washington, located at One Threefinger Salute Way.
Nor has Monty Python sued us for excessive quoting from the Holy Grail.
My parents live in the house on page 839 in Montana, which is also where I lived when I was in high school and desperately trying to find guys to date who didn't have chewin' tobacco rings in the back pockets of their Wranglers.
That's all I had to say. ;>
