I have been having a computer drama the last few weeks, and finally have my proper laptop back and fixed (mostly) but have to deal with OpenOffice, which I have never used before, until my dad gets around to reinstalling MS Word. It shouldn't affect the fic posting but to be on the safe side I apologise in advance for any formatting issues or update gaps that may occur because of this.
