Re: Writing in the Age of Distraction

I might get one of those big signs that say "DISTRACT ME" for my desk!

Re: What Do You Really Want For Christmas?

Mr pfder, Do I detect your feline neighbour's preferences at work there? :? Fluff From my limited experiments to date, she seems to be a big fan of "Dawson's Creek". This morning she learnt a new trick: That a freshly ironed shirt is excellent to stand on as it keeps your toes nicely toas...

Re: What Do You Really Want For Christmas?

I've given it quite a bit of thought, and while I can see the potential benefits of an end to hunger and world peace, what I'd really like is for the guys at HBO to make another season of "The Wire".

Re: That difficult-to-read small print

Yes, and no. Yes, we're all fictitious, but no, KB isn't talking to himself, but writing his long-awaited novel, in which we're all characters. So we should be worried about the fabric of the universe now that the novel characters have become self-aware in a Skynet from "Terminator 3" mee...

Re: That difficult-to-read small print

I see! So I've accidentally wandered into a bizarre internet version of "The Truman Show", where the forum members are actually all the scripted alter-egos of KB talking to himself endlessly?

That makes the "Icon" thread even more distrubing.

Re: That difficult-to-read small print

Probably not, I think that RTF file that generates the bulletin is off the server, and thus tied to the update information. Oh : gotcha. I think that would still be annoying. Consider that some people are keeping 1.x around for collaboration and whatnot. isn't it suppose to be a little bit annoying...

Re: That difficult-to-read small print

By which I mean completely get rid of the upgrade script. Have the dialogue box in the same style as the "this beta expires on 12 Dec" one on the Window Beta, either on every opening or a non iritating interval such as once a month.

Re: That difficult-to-read small print

Unfortunately the point is that the update system is a static library built into 1.54 and there is no way of changing the text of the button or of having the button do anything else other than overwrite the current version of Scrivener with one that is downloaded. All the best, Keith could you have...

Re: Saving project to use on multiple computers

Good morning, I am trying to save my project to flash drive, or to email myself so that I can work on my project at work, as well as on my laptop. (yeah, not really supposed to write at work, but tough nuggies). I have tried attaching the backup files as both zip and non-zip files. What is the prop...

Re: A kitten for Fluff.

The sad thing is, I just read this thread, to the end. Even when I realised it was no longer about cute kittens, and that reasons for upgrading old televisions were a just a temporary diversion, I kept going. And I don't know why. nom (confused, possibly mad, not angry) I can update that the cat do...
