Hi! I'm still alive. (Also, the cake is a lie.) Back to school is kicking my butt for a bit longer, probably.
Much as I hate to shill for Microsoft, this is a good deal. A friend of mine has alerted me to the fact that if you have a .edu e-mail address, you can get MS Office for $60 right now. Update: Another friend points out to me that this is for Windows only. Another update: You also have to be a current student. It's also not useful to students outside the US, since they have .ca or .uk suffixes or whatever. Hopefully this is still useful for someone?
I don't get a cut, just thought I'd share the info. I'll be back posting more regularly soon.
