Hmmm, I admire that you want to impress your father. Do it if you want to but I know that he is already impressed by you.

The extractor has uncompressed them. When they are compressed they are gibberish.

There is a big distro CAELinux, OpenFOAM is one of the included softwares. Never used it, though.

Not worth the download if OpenFOAM is the only one you need.

Hi,

You're welcome!

The caelinux wiki pages look good enough to get started, and it even has LaTeX and LyX editor!
