	isnt that TeX/LATeX?

	most of the story:

	my system admin installed libreoffice [??]

	he is a self-taught computer wizard who begin teaching himself
	BSD in the late 1990s, but I have the british distro of linux.
	ubuntu?  yeah.  ive got KDE and/or KUBUNTU.  
	Last July, this guy flew in from Dallas with two seriously heavy 
	duty Xeon Dell quadcore, and over a long weekend, threw out my old
	busted slow Dells and did some magic with my server, got Kubuntu
	on my desktop. he left me with my only new, 2009, Dell out of reach
	on my desk.  He's going to install FBSD when he has time.  Among
	the reasons I miss BSD is that *there* I know where things live.
	[K}ubuntu: nope.


	I winced when he messed with my '09 Dell which had FBSD.... but 
	he does know his stuff, and I'm pretty busted up.  

	I've used vi {nvi}, vim, since the old 3adm [?] dumb but nifty 
	terms.  the *only* time I use openoffice or libreoffice is for
	term papers.  I just happened to find the "formula" side very
	recently.  .... [[below in queue]]...



	I agree with Polytrop that Don Knuth's brillliant stuff is a 
	must for anything serious.  

	gary
