Angela Hill Grove posted to #I(Heart)Logan: Update on Logan: He had a great time fishing in Alaska!! A big thank you to everyone that made it happen!!! Now, he hasn't been feeling well this week.

Tech Report: Free & Open Source Software + Prime Day Wrap Up
Abandonware, according to Wikipedia, is a product, typically software, ignored by its owner and manufacturer, and for which no support is available. Although such software is usually still under copyright, the owner may not be tracking copyright violations.
Here, a list of commercial video games released as freeware, re-released now as freeware, includes Pharaoh's Tomb (1990) and SimCity (1989).
Alternatives to expensive software challenge the brand names, as outlined in James Floyd Kelly’s Don’t Spend A Dime (Google ebook link). LibreOffice is my Office Suite of choice.
Another important example for open sourced general software is the office suite StarOffice which was released by Sun Microsystems in October 2000 as OpenOffice.org and is in continued development as LibreOffice* and Apache OpenOffice.
My favorite software is listed in my annual tax time reprint, How I Got Rid Of 4 Filing Cabinets (And All My Bookcases), posted January this year: http://www.theothertoledo.com/daily-column/01162018-tuesday-column-tech-report
No list is complete without ebooks: Bookbub & ereader news today are my favorites.
What’s your favorite free software?
Prime Day Update: Are you getting yours? Amazon’s Prime Day 2018 ends noon today.
