Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

Post 53B – LibreOffice

Those of you that have followed this site very long will know I am a big fan of open source software.  There are many reasons for that.  First and foremost is the programs are free, meaning that everyone can have access to very powerful software.  Because it is a group effort by people that do what they do because they love what they are doing, very often the software is debugged better than some of the proprietary software.  It is also a world-wide effort, and this means the same software is available in many languages.   I can think of no better thing than people from all over the world working together for a common goal.

The reason I decided to post on this subject tonight is I had intended to show another way of calculating the PVC pipe pontoons, but this time I will do it on a spreadsheet.  Many of you out there may not have a spreadsheet installed on your computer because it is often an extra addition to the computer system.  Spreadsheets are probably the most useful general software used on computers.  It makes it possible to calculate budgets, make lists, and many other things useful in day-to-day living.

Although it will not be necessary to have the spreadsheet if will be much easier to follow and understand the calculations if you do have the software.  The file will be posted with both the Excel version (.xls) of the file and the LibreOffice version (.ods)

This is the link to the LibreOffice Website.
