Re: Syncing with Simplenote, Alas

I have a love-hate with Scrivener, and here's why: Nothing else helps me organize and update my novel so well while I'm working on my laptop.

Music reviews

I must say I particularly liked this review of Coldplays new album "Ghost Stories"and feel I must agree without even a listen.

Re: How popular is Scrivener?

I just never cease to be surprised by the Internet.


Sorry...***Spoiler Alert***

Never in a million years did I remotely imagine that by clicking on Naquada's blog I would learn how to seal my up and over-doored garage against rainwater and leaves. :)

Trolls

Why does this forum not get any trolls? Is it so well moderated that they are gone before they can do their stuff? The mods must be very active as there is hardly any spam either The nearest I have seen to trolling are some of the posts criticising Scrivener but I think they are really genuine misun...

Re: Saw this, and thought of... well... everything really.

*The first is: never read the comments on an article on a newspaper site.[/quote]

I think that is a good rule- the comments do tend to undermine one's faith in humanity.
