Very cool tip though I'm in absolutely no hurry to upgrade my version of Office since Office 2K3 still works great here.

I should and will add here that I'd probably be happy to use Office 2007 but just don't see the need to upgrade to 2007 (and pay $$$ to do so) when 2003 works fine and was paid for a long time ago.

If Microsoft offered a cheap upgrade plan, perhaps I'd be more inclined, but they just don't seem to get that I will not bankrupt myself buying upgrades that don't add that much more to what I had in the past. Especially considering I'd be looking at upgrading a whole household of systems over time. All part of the reasons I consider open source alternatives more and more frequently.

I got mine thru my job, I did't pay. But if openoffice comes out with a similar program to this one, like the blog feature, i'll get it. i was gonna buy the blog navigator but for now i wont. maybe a month from now.

Also, you can use the Windows Live Writer  (Beta) blogging app if you don't want to sink the money for Office 2007.

I've found Writer to be a very handy tool as of late.
