Week # 8, Thing #18 Online Productivity Tools

Okay, I had an open mind when first using the online word processer. I was thinking that it could be really handy and was very excited about posting the document I was working on (my new contract for my school's library service class). So I worked on it for like 45 minutes and then when I went to save it, guess what?? The first time it didn't work -- Internal server error. So I tried again and lost the entire document!!! ARRRGGGGHHH!!! So, at this point I am not a big fan of the ZOHO Writer. But I WAS able to go back, retrieve the file from my home Word program, save it again to ZOHO and finally publish it to my blog, so now you can all have a look. I guess this is a pretty neat service.

But I just went and looked for my document that was supposed to be posted to by blog and it is not there...hmmmm. Where did it go I wonder??

Some love Zoho and Google online tools and others don't. Be patient -- all are new and some are tempermental. For important word documents, I plan to stay with WORD. It might be a comfort thing -- that is what I grew up on.

Your final week of 2.0 tools will be fun. Enjoy!
Best wishes.
