OpenOffice.org Calc: Taking A Break for a Little Fun

Ok, so I’ll admit it right from the start – this tip is for fun, not for productivity…

But who’s not for a little fun once in a while?

Buried within the code of OpenOffice.org’s Calc program is a favorite game from days gone past.



Yep – that’s right… Space Invaders.

If you’re interested in maybe a break, to take a stroll down memory lane, then here’s all you have to know:

=GAME(“StarWars”)

Place this formula in a cell
, be sure to pay attention to the capitalization and spacing, then hit the Enter key.

The game will open – the text is in German, but who really needs to read directions to Space Invaders?

You should know that once you close the game, you’ll have to close out of OpenOffice.org completely to play again… but still, a small price to pay if you’re really in need of an entertaining break.
