The Mac version of ecto is all Adriaan's work. I only work on the Windows version :-)

This probably doesn't count...

I know I am only a blogger but recently a producer from Download Squad invited me to blog for them on a weekly basis. My third post has just made it to Digg's front page, and guess what? I used Scrivener for all of my blogging since I discover it about a month ago from Merlin Mann!

SVN handles folders just fine. I think it may be either SVN or the OS hosting SVN does not recognise some of the folder attributes that defines it as a package. That's my guess anyway since it is the only thing that stands out between regular folders/files vs. unit packages.

Come to think of it, I am sure a bit of Automator magic should be able to upload file to iDisk whenever the file is changed. That would satisfy the on-demand backup as well as being the least manual.

If you already have a .mac account, you can just setup a scheduled backup in the Backup app to upload the .scriv file every X minutes.

I think Time Machine in Leopard will solve this issue very nicely. The only problem is to find the disk space... For me, it is either an extra hard disk in the Mac Pro or get the new Airport Extreme and plug a RAID drive into the USB and turns it into NAS.

I hear you, but I still risked it last December and bought a Mac Pro. The only reason I did that was that one of my friend bought it right after it was announced and he has no problem with his machine. Couple that with the lack of noises on the web means the Mac Pro is generally well built.

Grammar checking software

I am looking for a grammar checking software that would work with Scrivener so I can cut myself off MS Word (finally!). However, when I search around, I can only find a few (Grammarian, etc.) and they haven't been updated since last year. Has anyone here used these apps? If so, how well do they work...

Yep, that would work really well for blog systems that have API exposed for desktop clients, such as MT, TypePad, WP, Drupal, etc. Unfortunately I've switched from TypePad to Vox which currently does not expose API for desktop client :-) Thanks for mentioning ecto by the way, my partner Adriaan will...

Interesting. I also use Scrivener to compose 'serious' blog posts (as oppose to my personal blog where less consideration is given to the content). The way I use Scrivener is very different. I use document for each blog post and use the notes area as scratch pad. I also use the keywords feature as a...

May be a plug-in interface would be better. i.e. someone can write a plug-in for blogging, while another can write a plug-in to sync with online repository such as Google Docs.
