M$ Office binary formats

E-mail Print PDF

Micro$oft has finally published their Office binary formats. Perhaps many of us, Free Software users see this as a big win. Though OpenOffice supports reading and writing in MS Office formats, these specs from horse’ mouth would surely be expected to make things better. Not so. It seems like these formats are not designed to inter-operate. This post from Joel Spolsky throws the light on why it is so.

I think as Free Software enthusiasts, we should still boycott these formats (or use a subset of these and ensure that they work fine with Free Software) and instead use the ODF instead. A lot of documents have started appearing in the new OOXML (with docx extension). Afew half-baked solutions exist to read these documents as of this writing. But hopefully a fully OO.o integrated solution will appear so that we can read docx files and convert them into saner formats.

Here is another related analysis from FSFE on why Microsoft is publishing these formats at this point of time.

Council Backtracks on Ham Radio Tower:

E-mail Print PDF
After facing static from the public, Saanich council has done an about-face on its support of a bid to build a 15-metre amateur radio tower in Gordon Head. In the end, approval or rejection for Ken Jones' application will come from Industry Canada, not Saanich. For Jones, council's move to reconsider its endorsement "puts a sour note" on the Saanich Emergency Program, which he volunteers for and insists the tower would benefit in case of a major disaster. "They support volunteers but they don't support what's required for the emergency program," Jones said outside council chambers. Last month, councillors voted 6-3 in favour of endorsing Jones' application to Industry Canada, the federal regulator for radio equipment. But Monday night, after hearing from people who live near Jones' San Rafael Crescent house where the tower would be built, council voted unanimously to reconsider the endorsement.
