Amazing AI technology invents new genre

Sunspring, a short science fiction movie written entirely by AI, debuts exclusively on Ars today. Me, I'd call it Science Faketion. And this is just the start: doubtless, soon to come are Historical Faketion, Fanfaketion, Metafaketion, Realistic Faketion, YA Faketion, Experimental Faketion, Erotic ...

I guess at some point I customized the RSS icon off of my toolbar. Thanks, AmberV.

Re: First Mac...looking at the Mini now

Consider a refurbished Mac from http://www.apple.com/shop/browse/home/specialdeals (RSS: https://refurb-tracker.com/feeds/us_in_all.xml). A refurb will be cheaper by some measure than a from-the-factory Mac. The advantages of a refurb over a used Mac is that a refurb is more recent tech, and you can...

I had the same problem. Try going to http://www.aeontimeline.com instead of http://www.aeontimeline.com/preorder/?p ... lackFriday. This worked for me; I was able to place the order.

Re: "ForceTouch" support on Macs.

I would use force click to add strength and expressivity to a sentence. Paolo I would use it to order a double espresso. Great ideas, and all can be accomplished using modifier keys: add strength to a sentence: Cmd-ForceClick add expressivity to a sentence: Opt-ForceClick order a double espresso: C...

Re: AMERICANS! Please help...

I do recall the rawlplug. In my memory (60+ years of it) is a hollow lead cylinder perhaps a inch and a half long, wrapped in (as I recall it) some sort of brown fibrous paper resembling thinly shaved tree bark. The rawlplug would be inserted into a hole drilled in a concrete or masonry wall, and on...

Re: Selecting text using kybd v. tpad in Scrivenings mode

I'm not sure I understand. I get that editing across document boundaries in Scrivenings mode can't be done. I would expect each method of selecting text -- using the keyboard and using the trackpad -- to show the same behavior, but they do not: - selecting text using the keyboard does not extend acr...

Selecting text using kybd v. tpad in Scrivenings mode

Create a folder and populate it with a few documents (say, five) that each contain some text. Use Scrivenings mode. Position the insertion point cursor in one of the documents in the middle of the Scrivenings (say, the second document of the five). Select text using the keyboard: use shift-down arro...

Scriv 2.3.1 completely nonfunctional on 10.8.1

I just set up a new Mac Mini that has 10.8.1. I used Migration Assistant to bring all my apps over. I ran Scriv 2.3.1 for the first time holding down the shift key to prevent it from loading my last open project, because I wanted to make sure that Scriv was working on a new sample project before ope...

Sort keywords in Inspector?

Is there a way to sort keywords in the keyword pane of the Inspector? I expected that clicking on the column header would do this. Thanks.

Problem with "dirty" indicator & data loss

I am using beta 0.9 on 10.6.8. Steps to reproduce: 1. Create a new document. 2. Double-click to add a note. The dirty indicator is correctly set (the red button in the note’s title bar has a black dot in its center). Add some text into the note. 3. Click outside the note so that it no longer has inp...

Good! I'm happy that you are not joining the unfortunately growing trend of dropping support for anything prior to Lion. Thanks.
