Re: TODO - Mac & Touch/iPhone?

I use things currently as well. I've got my eye on 2do for the iPhone though. Very nice and syncs with iCal.

Re: Relational database for submission tracking

I like PostgreSQL. And the included PgAdmin is pretty nice and self explanatory way of using the database with a gui. You'd need to know a few basic SQL commands but nothing crazy (unless you plan on doing some hefty querying and inner joining or something).

Re: pages 09 for academic work (in humanities)?

I use it. I just returned to school for a second Masters (I'm a masochist). I tried the MS Office 08 Trial but Pages does what I need it to. I write and organize everything in Scrivener and then export and finalize in Pages. No issues yet. I have a license to Nisus Pro as well and would probably use...

Typo in WriteRoom.ws Sync Dialog box

Keith,

Small typo in the WriteRoom.ws sync dialog box. This is v. 1.5.3 on OSX 10.6.1.

Apologies if it's already been reported. I did a cursory search and didn't see it.

Re: Noitational Velocity 2.0b released

Ahh... I was just coming over to post the link to the new beta. Notational Velocity is the perfect note taking app for me personally and the new beta works great. I used an early beta but it was probably more of an alpha at that point.... but it worked great. Somewhere in the upgrade to Leopard I ju...

Scrivener CVS settings and Git

Anyone know if Scrivener will cooperate with git in the same way as svn?

Re: Things

Yeah, The Hit List is very nice. I'm still using Things but have been trying out THL. It is very much in beta but it seems to combine the best of OmniFocus and Things. I like the minimal design of THL. Like when entering a date you are just presented with a text box and you type "every other sa...

Re: Things

Well, as if choosing a to do app. wasn't already difficult, now there is The Hit List. It's actually pretty slick but still missing a few key features in the current beta.

Re: Looking to organise

I'll try and explain how I use VoodooPad but I don't use it just for research/writing. I put all kinds of disparate information in there. Essentially, if I come across something I want to remember, it goes in VP. Since I can encrypt the whole document (I use Pro), sensitive info. goes in as well. I ...

Re: Looking to organise

I'm surprised no one has mentioned VoodooPad for organization. It's a bit more freeform than something like Journler, MacJournal, or Together but I find it invaluable. From ideas, notes, thoughts, recipes, reference, and various other "stuff", I can just throw it in and watch links form ov...

Re: Personal Finance.

I'm actually testing an app called Flowing Pennies (http://www.clarkwood.com/flowingpennies/). It's kind of like CheckBook but with a few more views and isn't "account based." Seems pretty nice so far. It's basically an electronic ledger with a few different views and a running balance of ...

Re: Regarding Hazel

Dan, I would add a rule to your current rule (where if any are true and not all since you want to deal with more than Scrivener files) that basically calls the file type.

Re: Free Creative Writing programs

Cocoa support for Java has been waning over the past few years, though... I'm not sure whether it will be supported at all in the future. Cocotron does look interesting, but unfortunately, as with all such options, it is unlikely ever to be able to handle porting something like Scrivener, which jus...

Re: Free Creative Writing programs

Looks like Cocotron may spearhead the way for compiling cocoa apps to windows. It was reported on TUAW (http://www.tuaw.com/2008/10/28/cocoatron-bringing-cocoa-to-windows/) and there is a neat account of Cocotron in use here from the TUAW report: http://macdaddyworld.com/2008/10/27/adventures-in-coc...
