Next step in photography

After losing my dad's tripod I need to think about what my next major photography purchase will be.

Tripod or Flash

They are going to run me about the same amount of money. A tripod means I can shoot more landscapes, and a flash means I can shoot people better.

I am leaning towards the 600 flash, and would probably go for a tripod from the local Ritz. mmmr decisions decisions.

AutoCompletion in OpenOffice

Have you ever been annoyed by that auto completion in OpenOffice. Sometimes it is handy, but most of the time I find it annoying.

Here is how to turn it off for Writer, the word processor.
  1. Open Writer
  2. Go to Format > AutoCorrect > AutoCorrect Options...
  3. Navigate to the last tab "Word Completion"
  4. Uncheck "Enable word completion"
Here is how to turn it off in Calc, the spreadsheet application.
  1. Open Calc
  2. Uncheck Tools > Cell Contents > AutoInput
  3. When the "AutoInput" label does not have a check mark next to it the auto-complete function is turned off.
I hope you find this helpful.
