Hi Jim,

Try LibreOffice instead. I find that it starts up a lot quicker than Open Office.

Cheers,

I started off with the 2 borrowed switches and things were so dramatically better I bought the other 4.  The computers all boot quickly and maybe our troubles have been resolved by just upgrading the switches.  It seemed a few people felt that gig lans were necessary and this I could check out quickly.
