Re: NaNo challenge

I want to try outlining this year. I don't like starting too far ahead of time, so I'll let myself start the outlining and character-sheets from October 1st, which is tomorrow :D I have a vague idea what I want to do, nothing real yet. I might try my hand at horror, never done that before either tho...

Re: Anyone Planning for NaNo 2009?

I don't see nanowrimo as a competition with others, it's something I at most see as a competition with myself. Can I write more words today than yesterday? Odd that such was your experience on the NaNo forums. It wasn't mine. There was one member that I did a word war with when we both got stuck, b...

Re: Pay the Writer

I need an audio version of this. Then I can play it every time someone comes up to me at a social event and says I hear you work with computers! Funny coincidence! I have a computer that is great, except … well it is weird. Maybe you want to look at it? I have something for YOU to look at! @$ @#$%@...

LIke starting your own personal support group? That isn't a bad idea.


At least I'll know I already like these people then :)

I do fine on my own too though.

Re: Anyone Planning for NaNo 2009?

yeah I strictly limit which NaNo forums I will read. Most of them are not useful to me. I do keep up on my local regional forum though; some of the crew continues to meet and write all year. Ooh that's cool. I just couldn't get along with my local region... I don't see nanowrimo as a competition wi...

Re: Anyone Planning for NaNo 2009?

Not planning yet, though I do intend to fill up the entire 50k this year.

Last year I had to limit myself to 25k.

And I will not go 'hang out' with the crowd on the nano-forums again... brrr....

You guys are much nicer!

Re: MMD > Scrivener > Word/RTF workflow

Hello, I fairly 'simple' way of doing this (I know, it's not ideal): In your Scrivener document, where you want the pagebreaks add a file, call it 'Page break' or something. In that file, put nothing but a string to identify later. I'd suggest: <PAGE BREAK> or something similar. Whenever you export ...

Re: New macbook, which one to buy?

Tanie, Give some serious thought to sticking with your plan to purchase the midrange model while in UK. Then use the "savings" to buy a few upgrades that you will probably want to consider. I would recommend the following in this order. 1. The max RAM you can fit in the machine. 2. Extern...

Re: New macbook, which one to buy?

Thank you all for your replies! A Macbook Pro is out of my league financially (well, possible, if I wait a year or something...) and originally I planned to go for the cheapest of two alu-models (the middle model of the macbook range). However, with a little research I discovered that the 'highest' ...

New macbook, which one to buy?

Hi all! My precious little ibook G4 of 4.5 years has slowly started dying and I think I should get a replacement. It will last me a few more months I'm sure, so I'll have the time to save up for a macbook (yay). But they have three different types... I don't know which one to get... I have to start ...

Re: Dvorak Keyboard

That is a good point. What I would love is a Dvorak layout that switches to QWERTY automatically whenever a major modifier is depressed. Most of those shortcuts are set up to be ergonomic. Cmd-C and Cmd-V roll off the fingers in QWERTY---not so much in Dvorak. Maybe it would be awkward holding two ...

Re: Inserting text on the fly

Very happy user of TextExpander here. I tried Typinator but couldn't get into it... I like how TextExpander let's you also 'expand' applescript so I only have to type '/turl' to make a tinyurl of a long one. Also, but I haven't looked into Typinator so much that I can say it doesn't, I like how I ca...

Re: OmniWeb

Been out of the loop a bit, I only found out about 20 minutes ago. I'm so happy! I had tried the demo for a while and really liked it but wasn't sure if I wanted to pay the money if I had free alternatives. I tried Safari again, and Firefox (I especially like browsing without a mouse that OmniWeb do...

I agree with the "my existing matched" point. What I did was sit down with my accountant and ask the following question: Don't I pay you to manage these details, and if not what am I paying you for?


I'm curious, what did your accountant say to that? :)

cheers,

Re: Personal Finance.

I downloaded MoneyWell a few days ago, and have now wasted endless hours trying to get it set up correctly. It still isn't quite right, so I'm not convinced I can trust the figures it is giving me. I'm going to have to double-check in Excel, which rather defeats the purpose. Since the envelope conc...
