Re: Words We Dislike (continued)

The "golden handshake" is what it is called here, unless I am wrong. It still doesn't make it moral or in any way justifiable (ugh). The trouble with Sir Fred is that the legal obligation was only half of what they gave him - the rest was at their discretion. Utterly, utterly immoral, eve...

Re: Mac OED due out soon

There is one drawback to the Second Edition, and that is its publication date. They have put out a few supplements since then, but if all you own is the base set, anything invented, or any words that have radically shifted, in the past thirty years is not going to be addressed. It's excellent as a ...

Bone Rattler

I want to put in a plug for the new Eliot Pattison novel, Bone Rattler. It's a murder mystery set during the French and Indian War (i.e. the Seven Years War). The protagonist is a young Scottish physician, Duncan McCallum, sentenced to seven years of forced labor for harboring his aging uncle, who w...

Re: Cheap, Writing-only Laptops

Another old Windows CE machine to look for is the NEC MobilePro. It has a very serviceable keyboard and the whole slate of decent CE applications built in.

Re: Mori?

I think AmberV is right: Every application is either to the side of being an archive (=dusty shelves in a cold cavern) or a workspace (=neat desk, paper available, fountain pen freshly filled). Nice and accurate summation! Interestingly, Steven Johnson recently wrote about how he uses DevonThink as...

Re: Mori?

Zoot is a marvelous piece of software, which I continue to use daily at my place of work. I've used it now for 10 years and have found nothing else like it for capturing, archiving and retrieving information. {sigh} But back to Mori. Thanks for the further input. I think I'll hold off buying a copy ...

Re: Mori?

DT Pro Office 2.0 has a View command, and under it Columns, where you select from ten criteria. All of those columns sort ascending and descending. Also under View, the Sort command has a rich array of choices. But I may not understand what you mean by custom columns? Druid, What I mean by custom c...

Re: Mori?

You might take a look at the DevonThink products. Version 2.0 is in beta, but stable. The list of files they import is here: http://www.devon-technologies.com/products/devonthink/comparison.html Can't beat DT for speed, search, and AI tools; files export easily to Scrivener. Druid, Thanks for the r...

Mori?

Hi, Well, after about 10 months with my MacBook, I have yet to find a notebook/information manager that I'm really satisfied with. I suspect this has something to do with my long roots in the PC world (which I maintain eight hours a day at the office). I recently took another look at Mori, and I fin...
