Does Crossover Office actually work?

Have you used CrossOver Linux (the Codeweavers version of Wine)? Does it work well with MS Office 2007? I've installed regular Wine and MS Word on my (Fedora 12) computer, and it works like crap. I was curious if the commercial version worked any better. Thanks. [more inside]

Wine needed for arts event. Free is best.

I've been tasked with securing in-kind beverage donations / beverage sponsorship for an event at a music & dance education non-profit, and I'm failing pretty badly. I lack useful contacts in the beer/wine/liquor industry, and I lack knowledge of what companies generally support small arts nonprofits in this fashion. As an added bonus, our organization is fairly new. Please give me advice on how to not suck at this... [more inside]

Port wine, less-sweet, $35-ish?

At a wine tasting last year, I tried a port that was notably less sweet than any other I have had. I liked it a lot, and I totally forget who made it or what it's name was. It wasn't tawny, and it wasn't white. It might have been vintage. That's all I remember. So: recommendations for less-sweet ports that retail for $35 or so?

Alternative holiday ideas for New Zealand?

It's a common enough question, what should I do on my holidays in New Zealand? But we're not regular folks so finding good information has been difficult. We have 10 days in late October and we fly in and out of Auckland. We're Australian but well traveled and will most likely stay on the North Island unless some compelling information arises. We've hired a campervan and intend to travel about and camp where we can. Maybe a bed and breakfast or two. Though we are on a budget the main goal is to relax and enjoy the scenery rather than try and cram in too much. [more inside]

Something more special than, but similar to, Riccadonna

More expensive alternatives to Riccadonna? I looove the sweetness of Riccadonna but want something a bit less cheap and tacky. So something around the 30-50$ mark (Australian dollar) would be super. I hate dry and tart sparkling wines, but I have also tried some sweet sparkling wines that are too sweet and heavy almost -- like a mudcake that's too rich and sickly. Riccadonna seems light and sweet and fruity as opposed to cloying. Note: I know almost nothing about wines and champagnes, so feel free to teach me things. :)
