Re: Vonnegutisms

Vonnegut changed my life. My all time personal favorites though would be Galápagos, Breakfast of Champions and a tie between Jailbird and Bluebeard. I can highly recommend all his stuff, though.

How to use Scrivener...according to the SMH*

http://www.dailylife.com.au/news-and-views/news-features/how-to-not-get-things-done-20130425-2ig8l.html Strangely, the author of this piece uses techniques that I always thought were only mine (except the Game of Thrones bits). Go figure. He's using Scrivener for his novel. If he stops writing fluff...

Re: Know a good blog hosting company?

I've used several hosts. Under no circumstances would I ever recommend "Bluehost", however. Very unsatisfactory and not value for money. They caused me no end of grief. Avoid, avoid, avoid. For a while, I used " Siteground " but they were over priced for what they offered. Curren...

Re: A successful author's advice

Wow - interesting article. Type of books aside (they're not my thing either but I do know some guys that read them - truly!), I think she's done the hard work and is reaping the rewards.

Re: How to select a new avatar (PLUS ROBOTS)

I strongly identify with Marvin the Paranoid Android. But he looked better on radio.

Re: How do you guys stop Forum spam?

1. DO NOT LET GOOGLE INDEX YOUR FORUM. If the bots can't find it they can't spam it. Not all bots honour the the 'no indexing' thing. As the same group with the forum recently found out with a wiki they were trialling. Within days of it being created (with indexing deliberately turned off) and no r...

Re: How do you guys stop Forum spam?

Matt, another forum I frequent has a policy that members have to be approved before posting is allowed. The "approval process" is merely sending an email to the applicant with a very basic question (e.g. what's your favourite colour?) and if there's a reply, they're approved :) . This, of ...

Re: How to Make Notes on Android for Later Inclusion

Hi SUeMichele, I'm in the same boat (except I've got a Galaxy S2). Anyway, what I do is use a note app that will sync to the cloud i.e. Dropbox or similar, like Syncplicity. Then, once you sync your computer, your notes will be available to slot into Scrivener. Or, you could go for something like Ev...

Re: Popular Productivity App Bundle for $40

Hi there Mr Hugh. I should have pointed out that my question was rhetorical. Of course it's a shameless advert. It contains no details whatsoever. No discussion of the products or their merits. Nothing. Just some cheesy sales speak the kind my human falls for all the time when he sees adverts on th...

Re: Writers App Promotion-Codes

Thanks, but at 99 cents I thought it better to PAY you! I agree! This is the best 99c I've spent for a long while. I'm a Writers App fangirl now. For getting down simple story ideas and keeping them in one place (that I can't lose), I think it's a winner. I wish you every success with WA, Thomas.

Re: favorite todo list programs?

It may be a bit "low end" for what you're after, but I use Reqall . It syncs with the iphone, you can enter voice memos (and it transcribes them for you - we have enormous fun at work dictating items such as "Buy Wankel Rotary Engine on way home Thursday" to it and see what it co...
