just finished listening to the "Netbooks" podcast. Though you might like to know that Open Office is now offering a plug in that lets you import and export to Google docs. It also does Zoho and WebDav?. Here's a link: Open Office Google Docs Another cool syncing app I use is Dropbox. I couldn't remember if you guys have talked about it before, but its such a cool and useful service I figured it would be worth mentioning.

I know you don't want to have to run something like Onyx, here's why should: Apple programs your Mac to run daily, weekly and monthly scripts to do clean up. This is programmed in the UNIX and it's set to run at night, when you're not using your computer. But if you put your Mac to sleep, it won't run. You can Terminal your way into the UNIX and change it, but you should have high geek cred for that. So it's better to run something like Onyx or Cocktail which will run the scripts as well as empty the caches and repair any broken permissions (Mac registry stuff). I run Cocktail once a week and even on my old iBook, which I had for 3 years, 2 OS changes and lots of program adding and trashing. It ran pretty well for all that time and certain better than any Windows machine over the same amount of time. Sheala, GA Next time: Home media?
