amartist emailed me a question for the geeks...

"I just wanted to post a question on the forum to ask for advice – I need a simple database for my xmas card list."

What would you folks recommend?
(She's on Mac OSX ver 10.6.8)

And here's a Google search that might help...

I like Open Office, documents done in Open Office can be E-Mailed to any other system.

That'd probably work - or if she has Word, obviously that can do mail merge to labels (i.e. Avery 5160). Honestly, a few years ago while helping a relative with the same task, I just took an old mail merge and flattened it to a Word file. A database is cool, but unless you write to a lot of people, it strikes me as overkill. (Hasn't e-mail supplanted snail mail by and large? Cards are great, but I expect some might end up contemplating whether certain folks are 'stamp-worthy' or not. I honestly believe an e-mail message can be significantly more personal than a Hallmark [ugh] greeting.)
