2E Citation Project

Some of you know that I've been compiling an index of 2E monsters and what 2E materials their stats appeared in.

The task is becoming too massive for a single blog post, and I'm going to have to give in and do it in an Excel spread sheet...unfortunately, I don't have MS Office on my laptop, so doing that may take a good long while. $399 just to be able to do spreadsheets in the basement is a bit much....but for an OCD DM like myself, not beyond the possible.

Libre Software to the rescue! If you want a spreadsheet and don't want the burden (cost or control) of a proprietary package, check out OpenOffice. This is an MS-compatible office suite. Calc is the Excel-equivalent package. You can save in Excel format or as PDF. You can read most Excel formats (no VBA). Give it a try.

Another FOSS offering is Gnumeric. I add the link only for informational purposes; OpenOffice should suffice nicely.

I'm getting an educational discount and will be able to pick up the whole 2007 Office Suite for $100, which will make my life a lot easier trying to do some of my actual work at home (and my RPG work at work).
