Hmm, well, I'll have to think about it. First I need to... um... 
<mumble>actually check out and build koffice</mumble> ;-).

(I did just go find 11G of hard drive space I could reclaim in 
preparation for that, however... KDE is eating up a pretty substantial 
chunk of space on my disk :-).)

Alas, no, but GSoC sometimes makes me wish I still was ;-).

That's fine, PS7 is all I, er, "have access to ;-)" as well, and is the 
format my "lost" file is in. (Let me know if something later would be 
beneficial, I might actually consider buying a copy if it will help the 
cause... /maybe/. Of course, I'm hoping that in not so terribly long, 
Krita 2.x will be good enough that I won't be interested in either PS or 
Painter :-).)

Somewhere, there is a .sig so funny that reading it will cause an 
aneurysm. I haven't found it yet, but I think I met a few of the runners-up.
