Dice Probabilities

This is a compression of d20 vs. 2d10 probability curves, with both control and situation dice. This is just a rough draft for now, and I am looking for suggestion on how to improve upon it. Suggestion on formatting and what other dice rolls to include are welcomed. This file was original created in Excel 2007 and then converted to open office.

Using OpenOffice Calc to graph probability curves is the kind of cool nerd stuff I like to see. Lots of information, very little data (compared to just a PDF or un-editable picture of a graph I mean).

High marks for being the first submission using Calc!

I give him points for using Open Office, but I have to mark him down for not saving it in a more common file type. I'm all for using Open Office but I don't have it installed on all the pc's I happen to access the site from. Without some kind of converter I'm not able to use it on this pc. Sorry, but ods is not yet a common file type.

First off Thank you, now let me see if I can address some of the concern here.
TerroX:
"Very little data,” I am not sure what you mean I have the numbers I used to calculate the graph in the spread sheet. If the methods that I used are confusing I can correct that in the future.
Delthos:
I posted it in Open Office because I am under the impression that the preferred format of this sight, I mainly work in Excel, being that what I am most familiar with. If there is a better Open Office format to use, or you would like me to post it in .xls format as well I be more than happy to.
TerroX: Is there any way to have two file formats in the same resource?

You can save Open Office calc documents as xls files. Then they can be opened by both Excel users and Open Office users. Open Office calc files can't be opened natively via Excel. It's for that reason that I don't think Open Office files should be the preferred format for the site.

By Very Litte Data: I mean the file is small, which is good!. Excel/Word/Powerpoint etc makes a lot bigger files.

Open Office is free, the file formats are open standards. Microsoft Office costs hundreds of dollars. Open Office is the option everyone can use, even if it is less commonly used - Open Office is still free and works on Macs, Linux, Windows, etc.

No can't have two files in one resource. Would rather not have the bigger Excel/Word/ etc files used at all really, they don't work well on old versions either.

Looking at file sizes for this one file, it is 347 KB in .ods, 561KB in .xls, and 183 Kb in .xlsx (Microsoft's new format).
