I hate pretty much all versions of office for word processing, Except for the VERY old ones...

I used to use Claris Works on my PC on Win 3.1, and i liked it, and i also really like iwork, But I cannot stand Office, At all

ahh I find 2007 to be easier in excel... I tend to use a lot of excel but very basic...some pivot tables and data entering but that's about it

It's odd you don't have a choice of placement by default. I like my bookmarks on the top, just below the address bar.

I paid off my car and student loans last year! But still no house, just an apartment for now. I'm definitely trying to be responsible in terms of money because my parents were more the kind of people who were a bit careless.

I've had my share of being irresponsible and living only in the present already, and now I want to think for the future.
if your young and are thinking of your future buy a house or condo, nothing makes you direct your attention like mortgage

So when assembling everything to build a computer, do you order things in a particular order or just bite the bullet and order everything at once?

Having never done it before, I'm unclear as to the normal timeline of a build. One full day? Two full days? A week with breaks so you don't kill your spouse?
