Re: Has Windows Version 3 Been Scrapped?

Any developer which spends TWO years in beta AND still has the number of bugs being reported that L&L has isn't real serious about the effort. Counter-example: Gmail. Gmail was in beta for just over 5.25 years. And Google Docs was in beta for three years *after* Google's acquisition of the orig...

Re: NiaD X

First of all, the email arrived without the attachment containing the brief so I had to request it from Mr Pigfender, after checking that it definitely was missing. It was! Then, when I received it I couldn’t sleep for wondering what the Fourth Amendment was, and pondering how to write about an int...

Re: NiaD X

[<snip> …… The idea I *could* see us doing soon is Cookbook in a Day... My take on that is that: ⋅ on the one hand it would be great, particularly if restricted to family recipes rather than recipes culled from existing cookbooks or the internet—though I don't know how you could ensure th...

Re: NiaD X

I should also say -- it'll be a few days before I get round to uploading the Award Mug badges for this year (I'm very frazzled!!!!). I'm aiming to have them sorted for next weekend, and will post an update in this thread when live.

Re: NiaD X

I wonder would it be too great a technical challenge to do a Graphic Novel In A Day some year. Insanity! Crazy wonderful insanity! :D That said, I can't quite see how it would work - besides giving Pigfender the heebie-jeebies. Giving me the heebie-jeebies is good enough reason for people to want t...

Re: NiaD X

Hey! I'm not seeing my chapter in the finished stories. I sent it out about an hour before the deadline. Did it not arrive? I didn't get any bounced notifications or anything. I'm kind of bummed since I worked on it for hours today. I even had a power outage and was afraid I wouldn't be able to sen...

Re: NiaD X

Getting down to reading,! One more newbie question: the colors - are they different only in who wrote or also some parts of the script were different? They're just written by different people. So if, for example, you wrote chapter 10 in book Yellow, the people who wrote Chapter 10 in the other book...

Re: NiaD X

Done! The benefit of being in this time zone is that I have lots of time to mull my concept. The drawback is that I have to start writing as soon as I wake up. This year's genre was ... my spouse's favorite. One of these days, I swear the story will be about something I know about (and will have no...

Re: NiaD X

Unless I'm dreaming, which, truth to tell, is quite possible, Mr. P. Fender has changed his avatar. Why? There are a bunch of first time participants so I've changed my avatar -- JUST FOR TODAY -- to make it easier to associate responses on here which are from "the dude what sent the packs out...
