Re: Things

Oh dear, I think there is something wrong with me! Is there a name for a compulsive disorder which makes you pathologically incapable of resisting playing with new variations on the task management theme? :) . Over on the outlinersoftware.com forum we call this ailment CRIMP... standing for Compuls...

Re: Scrivener as Dedicated Research Database

I have a rough draft of a step-by-step guide to learning MultiMarkdown which I am about a week away from posting everywhere. It's something I've been wanting to do for a while, and had a bit of spare time. Ultimately, I want to create a complete guide that goes from very basic "my first MMD he...

Re: Scrivener as Dedicated Research Database

Amber (or anyone else who can answer this question), Would you recommend a resource for learning more about MultiMarkdown. I checked the forum on this site, but all the links seem to be no longer functioning. I guess I'm looking first for a quick overview and then, hopefully, for a primer of some ki...

Re: The Cork Board Issue: A Proposal To End The Nonsense

If we're voting, I say aye! This would be a great application to have. Someone on the Curio forum (perhaps it was you, Sean), asked the developers to add index cards as an option. I don't think the developers responded to the request... but that would be a nice addition! I wonder if you can mimic wh...

Re: New Macheist Bundle

There are usually a number of people waiting for the final days to get a better idea of what they'll get. The one that I did participate in had TextMate at the very top, and it didn't look like it would be unlocked by a long shot but in the last few days everyone that had been holding out for TextM...

Re: New Macheist Bundle

Does anybody have any experience with Espresso? It seems to be very similar in idea to "Coda", which is a little pricey but something that has been recommended here on numerous occasions. Does anyone know how these two compare? With just six days remaining, I would be surprised if sales r...

Re: New Macheist Bundle

Seems to me that it benefits the developers to be part of a Macheist bundle for the following two reasons: ⋅ They get some money out of it. I don't know how much, probably a flat fee or perhaps a percent of sales. I bought this bundle, but never would have bought any of these applications ...

Re: Battlestar Galactica

My wife and I are watching the series now via Netflix disks. We've just begun season two. It is an exceptional series, great drama and themes for the ages. I'm looking forward to continuing to watch, though I don't expect it to maintain its high level of excellence. It is rare a show can keep the st...

Re: Dan Simmons Writing Well

I've read quite a bit of Simmons' fiction and generally enjoy it a great deal. They are smart and literary and usually dashing good tales. I also enjoy the fact that he writes in so many genres. My first exposure to him was a mystery adventure starring Ernest Hemingway and taking place in Cuba durin...

Re: "A Good Place to Die" - James Buchan - stunning

I was searching for this title here in the states and couldn't find it, but I suspect the novel was published under a different title called The Persian Bride.

Re: Words We Dislike (continued)
