Re: Macbook Air, or Notebook PC?

What, exactly, is/are the issue(s) with Lion? Many of the "problems" people have with it can be changed, with the exception of Spaces/Mission Control--in which case you're out of luck. If you can rethink your workflow, though, Lion is great. I find I'm a lot more productive with it than I ...

Re: evaluating Scrivener for publishing book on WordPress maybe

As for editing, why not just edit in Scrivener and then use copy special to edit the post on WordPress?

Re: My App Store Review

Considering the number of free/lite versions of apps available on the App Store (particularly for iOS), I've always found it baffling that Apple has a policy against trial versions. There have been a number of times where I might be interested in an app, but haven't bought it because there was no de...

Re: Lion: First Impressions

Thanks, Cinder6, for some hints & tips I was unaware of. I've used the Terminal change you suggest and am happy with that. That said, some people are uncomfortable with Terminal (justifiably so, IMHO)--so here's another way to access Library: When in Finder, go to "Go" on the menu bar...

Re: Lion: First Impressions

Seeing some somewhat strange remarks here that aren't quite true, or at least aren't what I'm seeing on mine (I've been running Lion since the GM). Moving native applications around in the /Applications directory has always been frowned upon, as it can break some things. Blame Apple for that one. (O...

Re: Backups and Auto-Save in Mac OS X Lion

My first thought was that it might be possible to have Versions enabled for each individual file in the package, but that would probably be rather non-trivial. And then I realized two things: 1. Scrivener already auto-saves. 2. There's already a keyboard shortcut for creating a snapshot. You can eve...

Re: Vonnegut, Palauhniuk, Tolkien, and King

I have a hard time reading multiple books, myself. I can usually get away with one book for school, and one for fun, but I've never managed even two at once for fun. I just get sucked in to one and put other(s) away, often for months. I just finished the Dark Tower series, myself. I'm obviously not ...

Re: Scrivener on Linux: official release?

I wonder at the proportion of Linux users willing to pay for software. Most Linux distributions are free, and have repositories full of free software--they're used to having everything on their computer free of charge. There are some for-pay Linux applications, but they are the exception, rather tha...

Re: The new Macbook Pro's

I'll accept that I simply don't have the workflow that would necessitate or even make useful the docking station, while others do. Hopefully Apple doesn't try to take away all the connectors and force the dock on everyone, if it even comes out.

Re: The new Macbook Pro's

Apple would have to push to make the technology a truly universal standard that other manufacturers would adopt, and I can't see them doing that. Firewire? Mice? GUI? Just the 3 that come to the top of the pile. Firewire briefly saw use, but even though it's on many computers nowadays, it rarely ev...

Re: The new Macbook Pro's

The problem with the "universal" MagSafe is it would still require some sort of mux box to combine all the signals. Apple would have to push to make the technology a truly universal standard that other manufacturers would adopt, and I can't see them doing that. You're going to have a devic...

Re: The new Macbook Pro's

I doubt we'll see the removal of the optic drive from the Pro line. I'm also skeptical about Light Peak or the new MagSafe cord. Touch screens seem unlikely. The carbon fiber chassis is a possibility.

Re: When bad characters do bad things

Hell, Stephen King has placed himself in at least one book of which I know. pigfender, you make a good point about writers writing what they like to read. I also find it irritating, in that if you don't want people to think you "messed up", you might have a hard time writing what you reall...

Re: When bad characters do bad things

Hmm, that's a good point. Other characters don't match you, so why do the extreme ones? In my book, there's a character that's rather...seductive (she's basically a succubus ...it would be wrong for her not to act that way!). No doubt, somebody will accuse me of trying to live out some weird fantasy...
