Re: NiaD X

Well, I've just sent mine in. Vic would probably immediately recognise it as mine—he always called me "young-un" or some such, even though I wasn't that much younger than him—as he'd immediately recognise the accent and the not-terribly-novel-like language! Good luck to those that are sti...

Re: NiaD X

So, it was not the graphic driven highspeed source of information - it was more like a two lane dirt road with a lazy flowing creek along side... but there were always trolls. I think a more accurate "road analogy" is "two rut dirt road with a few homesteads next to a creek and a tra...

Re: NiaD X

In an effort to explain my very early completion of NiaD X I need to tell a short story. Back in the early days, when Piggy was a wee lad, when NiaD badges were a single mug of pens, a certain pair of miscreants huddled in a dark corner and whispered about how much fun it would be to do a NiaD somed...

Re: NiaD X

Well...

it is unlikely that I'm really good, so the work must be absolute sh!t. But Piggy has my chapter submission. I swear he's giving me the easy ones. By far my shortest submission to date at 1257 words (I think my last one was nearly 5k).

wait... when did we start talking about rules?

There aren't real rules. Just think about possible readers. I'm probably one of the more ... 4 letter liberals ... but I try not to. Just happens.

Re: Is Scrivener NICER on Mac?

If you like Mac OS interface better then the answer is "Yes, you will think it is nicer." But many folks don't like the Mac OS interface and they think Scrivener on Windows is nicer. The question is subjective so there is no "correct answer". Personally I find scrivener to be &qu...

Re: Fall of Western Civilization, Was Has Windows Version 3 Been Scrapped?

Do you all recognize that within 2 pages we have already degraded from discussion of the issues of opinion sharing (which is in fact opinion sharing) to antagonistically pointing at others? You have proven to me that my opinion , that all of this "social media" is absolutely futile, is ter...

Re: NiaD X

The local dolphin that I’ve been working with in character development wants to know if he can be credited as a contriving author. I told him you are reasonable but he insisted on verification. What say you? The dolphin is more than welcome to submit her/his own chapter if she/he is capable of pass...

Re: Has Windows Version 3 Been Scrapped?

This is a cornerstone of civilized, modern society. I agree with that, apart from it being a cornerstone of modern society any longer. I was not intending to say "this is how it is today" as much as "this is what MUST BE". When a society or government limits the RIGHT of the peo...

Re: Has Windows Version 3 Been Scrapped?

You and I were taught the Socratic method of debate and discovery. Mainly that questions are posed to assist in the process of mutually agreed or disagreed facts. and from that basis of agreed facts one then builds a cause. I’m not sure how people are basing the thought processes for logic today, bu...

Fall of Western Civilization, Was Has Windows Version 3 Been Scrapped?

I’m near to withdrawing from all social media and forums ... except this one, I hope? :cry: Well... the tenor of "communications" has degraded over the years on my most favored forum... This one. It used to be that we could discuss ANYTHING without anyone saying much more than "I dis...
