Over the years, Microsoft has started to become greedy with their Microsoft Office packages, previously, it was pre-included in Windows computers, and then, they were separately sold. Now, they’re yearly subscriptions (like an Anti-virus)
It’s time to make a stand! (And no, don’t even pirate their software.)
LibreOffice - a software that’s very similar to Microsoft Office BUT THIS ONE’s FREE!
This has helped me big time during my time in college. Saved me big bucks & not getting into trouble by downloading a cracked Microsoft Office copy.
I highly recommend this to everyone.
this is actually easier to use than Word tbh
Wow I was just considering to buy that Office 2013 package until I saw this post. Good stuff! +1
I literally JUST cracked and bought my year of Microsoft Office -_-
But yeah they are just going really far from what they used to be.
Does libre office save in doc format though? I used to use another program that did but websites wouldn’t recognize it as doc :/
^ Yes, you can save as a .docx file & you can open files made through Word as well.
Been using Libre Office/Open Office for years now. I have honestly not used Microsoft Office since 2003. Microsoft is on it’s way to collapse. Windows is going down the tubes in quality, and Open Source Operating systems are becoming more prevalent, they blew it with Windows Mobile, Xbox One looks like a total failure with a lot less power than the PS4. And now this with Microsoft Office. Use LibreOffice, save yourself money and use a product that is more often regularly maintained and updated than it’s Microsoft counterpart.
I’ve been usingit for years now. It’s a great alternative to Microsoft Office. Can save in nearly any major format. Plus I find it easier to use than Microsoft Office. Haven’t really used that since 03 when they had it in my high school computers.
I used to use OpenOffice because I refused to by word. Thankfully my college gave it to is for free but I will always recommend alternatives.
Or, you could buy office, and help stop the company from laying off hundreds of people
Don’t support business practices you don’t like because someone will loose their job. You are the consumer! You decide what you approve of and what you don’t.
Depression is hard to understand, because it is not a consistent state. Depression is rather like a virus, but like a virus, it has its manageable days and its acute, life-threatening flare-ups. You can be in a depression and still laugh at a friend’s joke or have a good night at dinner or manage low-level functioning. You grocery shop and stop to pet a puppy on the corner, talk to friends in a café, maybe write something you don’t hate. When this happens, you might examine your day for clues like reading tea leaves in a cup: Was it the egg for breakfast that made the difference? The three-mile run? You think, well, maybe this thing has moved on now. And you make no sudden moves for fear of attracting its abusive attention again.
But other times…
Other times, it’s as if a hole is opening inside you, wider and wider, pressing against your lungs, pushing your internal organs into unnatural places, and you cannot draw a true breath. You are breaking inside, slowly, and everything that keeps you tethered to your life, all of your normal responses, is being sucked through the hole like an airlock emptying into space. These are the times Holly Golightly called the Mean Reds.
I call it White Knuckling it.
I could have used this information over the last 29 years of my god damn life
My mom taught me to pack like this and she gets mad when I come to visit and sees that I don’t use it.
I need to remember this for uniforms.
Oh my god, I am learning this ASAP. HOW DID I NOT KNOW OF THIS BEFORE?!
Since gen 6 has arrived, and we know all the Pokemon available, I made new rating grids! I haven’t bothered with doing different forms or megas yet, but these are nice basic grids for anyone that wants to do their ratings!
Just click an image to make it bigger, then save to fill it out on your own! All these grids are transparent! No credit needed, but it is appreciated! uwu
Have fun filling these out! I’ll be uploading mine later. c:
I’m not in dire straits. I’m not about to be evicted. I’m just a third-year university student, a guest in my grandparent’s house, short on money and self-respect, and highly likely to be unemployed for the summer. I’m not trying to deal with massive financial problems - I’m just trying to turn my life around.
I see all these amazing, talented people offering up gorgeous art commissions in return for donations - but I don’t have any art to offer up. Instead I have FOX RED, my debut novella, currently live on Amazon Kindle. You can buy it for $0.99 - or you ought to be, were it not for bloody VAT. It’s still a fairly low price, even for an 80-page story! I get a cut of $0.35 for each sale, which means I need to make a lot of sales to get a good return. I put FOX RED on a free promotion for 5 days, and got 2200 downloads in the US alone! Since then, sales have been meager to non-existent.
So, Tumblr, I’m asking for your help once again. You can download FOX RED from Amazon US here. It’s also available in all other Amazon markets. Obviously, not everyone owns a Kindle, so as an alternative I’m including a Paypal donation option HERE. Message me with an e-mail address or other means of communication, and I will send you a copy of the .html version of the manuscript I uploaded to Amazon. Afterwards, feel free to make any donation you like. And please, please leave a rate & review on Amazon or on Goodreads.
If you took the time to read this post in full, even if you’re not a buyer, thanks for your time. Please consider reblogging this to your followers.
"As the winter solstice draws close and the shadows in the pine woods lengthen, a young woman sets out to trap and kill a fox, the tutelary beast of her dead husband. Clad in its hide and armed with its cunning, she sets out on a hard and desperate journey - a journey that will lead her through realms of primordial spirits and restless phantoms, shadowed by a great wolf with eyes of ice and a bone-white pelt.
Her name is Ruja, and she will challenge the realm of Death itself to recover what was lost.”
