    Google: Please spend some time FIXING your BROKEN search results! This is your core business, and it is SCREWED UP.

    Then you may continue expanding.

    Thank you.

    That's great news. We need alternatives to MS Office, especially if they are free!

    Andy,
    I agree. Google search results are a mess. I have started using Yahoo again when I am serious about finding something.

    And yahoo is slurping things SOOOO fast these days. 1 backlink and you're whole site is indexed and traffic begins. I'm still building the darn site and the traffic is whacking it. If you use Alexbet.com to make you a logo or web elements or banners or what not, he'll add you to his portfolio of work he's done (if you grant him permission):
    http://www.alexbet.com/showcase/

    This one move gets you your first backlink and Yahoo crawls the dog snot out of you. I am still working on naming conventions and structure a tad and there's people on my site. I found a few phrases in yahoo that they searched on and I ran them at Yahoo - page one! Alexbet.com rocks!!!

    Yahoo knowing me too fast - that's a very good problem!!!

    I used StarOffice for awhile, and found that it actually does offer competing services. Don't know why anyone would pay for MS Office when you can get the same thing for FREE!

    I wonder how Microsoft will fight back?

    Pppbbbttt Goodie for you

    They index your undone thing, while ignoring some of the best sites on the Net (ie, mine!)
