    Also look at Writely (an online AJAX wordprocessor).

    http://www.writely.com/

    I think google will be hosting this too soon as a companion service.

    Yep, I'm pretty impressed with Google Spreadsheet as well. If only RM made something like this for the damn QCA testing malarky.

    Re: google spreadsheet

    Hmm.. but Google server the whole world and QCA a bunch of UK schools. Still, even then - the DPS communicates with the local APS so I wouldn't have thought it'd be more technically difficult to run a web-based AJAXed interface.

    Re: google spreadsheet

    Also google runs on Linux, which gives them a slightly unfair advantage over RM.

    while going off topic web would nerver work due to amount of data transfer to network slow now imagine what would be like with web front. Main thing being that in google spreadsheet only need to record what has changed and keep last few data transfers qca have got to keep lot.

    web nevere going to work in 10000 years

    anyway to go back on topic when google presentation due out

    Sent a week or so ago (when it was first mentioned on slashdot) from my gmail account.
    Maybe they ignored requests on that day due to high volume of "just curious" people coming from slashdot?
