Re: Project Targets Issue

2. When I reset the daily target in the menu it's not going back to 0, it's going back to random negative numbers, anywhere from -600 to -18,000.

I can confirm that this has happened to me, also, at least half a dozen times, if not more.

SSDs and constant writing to disk

For the techies out there (you know who you are): I run a couple of laptops with SSDs and Win10 Pro 64bit. One is used only for writing with Scrivener, and a bit of internet research. The laptop is in use daily, seven days a week, five to six hours a day. I have the save set to five seconds, just be...

Re: hello, a newbie came by.

Furthermore, I was happily reading through Vic-k and a three word story story from the beginning, and my bookmark fell out. Darned if I can find where I was.

Re: What if I Wrote & Nobody Bought?

I too am retired. Before that, I was fortunate to have spent a considerable amount of time involved in aviation in some of the seedier parts of the world. That left me with an abundance of encounters, lies and whispers that might have led to treachery at the time, but have subsequently enabled me to...

That's nothing. Do a search for "insider threat program". The era of Drunken Joe McCarthy is back, and this time it's going to be much, much worse. The instigators will be sober. The Insider program has already moved to the Federal Department of Agriculture - Agriculture? What's with that?...
