Some Weblog Editing …

I have started adding some pictures to previous entries on my field trip to Alert. It is something I did not manage to do right away, because of time and bandwidth constraints and a misbehaving Firefox browser. So expect more pictures in past entries soon.

I have also made a step towards using more free and open-source software by eliminating MS Office (replaced by NeoOffice, an OpenOffice port for Mac) and Photoshop (replaced by Gimp) from my laptop.

Gimp runs fine (for my purposes), NeoOffice is feels sluggish and clumsy and there are some minor compatibility problems with imported Excel files (especially with graphs and error bars). But a Beta version is in the works, there will be improvements down the road. But I use mostly LaTeX anyway, so no big problem here đŸ™‚
