Cadence,
The only way you`re gonna get through the next few weeks, it to start snorting, 'offtopickings', like the rest of the crew.

Mr Mark,
By way of consolation prize, here are the lyrics to Dirty Old Town, penned by Ewan MacColl, plus a piccy of its most famous performer: Shane MacGowan

I met my love by the gas works wall
Dreamed a dream by the old canal
I Kissed my girl by the factory wall
Dirty old town
Dirty old town

Clouds are drifting across the moon
Cats are prowling on their beat
Spring's a girl from the streets at night
Dirty old town
Dirty old town
I Heard a siren from the docks
Saw a train set the night on fire
I Smelled the spring on the smoky wind
Dirty old town
Dirty old town

I'm gonna make me a big sharp axe
Shining steel tempered in the fire
I'll chop you down like an old dead tree
Dirty old town
Dirty old town

I met my love by the gas works wall
Dreamed a dream by the old canal
I kissed my girl by the factory wall
Dirty old town
Dirty old town

Bad Ass does not nearly describe it.


(Although I did suffer a tad from sad panda when I found out there would be no Commodore 64 version. :-)

Yes, a pity. Keith has obviously NO IDEA where the mass market is headed. He'll probably go bankrupt if he doesn't make a version for C64. I mean, it's Basic V2, what's the holdup?!

And I am not sure what bothers me more, that you have a c64, that I can think of 3 ways to make this look real but still be fake, that even if it is fake I am envious of your c64, or, as i suspect, you not only have a WORKING c64, but that you still have the ability to poke the image into the proper registers to display.

Evil.

It's been worth the wait. Scrivener was the first add-on product I purchased when I moved to the Macs. I love using it and wouldn't have a machine without it, that is except for one Windows machine that hasn't had the pleasure. Count me in for an upgrade on the Mac platform and a for a copy for the Windows machine that sits by jealously waiting. Oh...and the same file format????? That's way beyond awesome!!!

rubbish snipped

[quote="shanusmagnus"]
if I end up having to pay money just to be able to rename a scrivener project from within the program, then there will be significant ill-will on my part. Yes, I know I can quit Scrivener, open finder, rename the project from there. I could also write my stories in Emacs. The point is that I shouldn't have to.

The real point is that you are are a dullard, prone to making sweeping generalisations about things you don't understand, and ... ooh! ... veiled threats of "significant ill-will".

I mean if you are so ill organised that you find yourself needing to rename your shopping lists so frequently that the inability to do so within Scrivener is an inconvenience then may I suggest pencil and paper, emacs is probably too much for you.
