Re: NiaD X

Hey, with a robot space pirate protagonist I won’t have to fret about my character’s motivation. Why everyone seems to think AI's are going to be bland and benevolent escapes me. They'll be as equally fubar as we are - only with less restraint and more processing power... especially space pirate ro...

Re: NiaD X

Why are some mugs in yellow, and others not?
Is this some deep-dark secret, known only to a small cabal of NIAD cognoscenti, or what? :twisted:

RC11 Import problem (Wine on Ubuntu).

I tried to import a .DOC file into the binder.
I got: Could not convert file - Error: Unknown Error.

Same thing with DOCX but not with a PDF, which imported perfectly.

Re: RC11 - Compile problem (Wine on Ubuntu)

Nope. I tried compiling to ODT, DOCX and DOC. Scrivener seemed to render something, but the file didn't appear.
Yet compiling to PDF wasn't a problem. Odd.
Perhaps I'm missing a library somewhere... or it's a glitch in Wine?

I'm running Ubuntu Studio - which runs Ubuntu 18.04.

RC11 - Compile problem (Wine on Ubuntu)

I'm not sure If you want bugs found via a wine install, but just in case:
I tried to save a single document via compile to ODT. It went through the process, but didn't produce a file.
I changed the compile output to PDF and it rendered without a problem.

Re: What's your favourite displacement activity?

I’ve got a very complex system in place designed to make sure that I never have to actually, you know, write something. Firstly, I make sure I’ve got several projects on the go so that I divide what little energy I have very thinly, and guarantee that in the rare occasions I’m actually typing words...

Insanity! Crazy wonderful insanity! :D
That said, I can't quite see how it would work - besides giving Pigfender the heebie-jeebies.
