Hi Cody,

I like the idea of web-based open-office editing and of cloud storage for
openoffice.  Rob had a good point that there are hard costs involved with
web-based clouds of our own, but there is no reason that we cannot do a
feasibility study of the idea.  Knowing "the cost" is more powerful than
merely knowing there is "a cost." (IMHO)
