Oh, and while I'm here, I do think that the Scrivener logo is absolutely the coolest logo of all time! I just couldn't believe it when whoever it was who had just bought Scrivener, many moons ago, immediately joined the forum to suggest the logo should be replaced by one of a typewriter ... thinking that would be an improvement! I'm just jealous that I didn't think of the Scrivener logo first to be able to use it as my own! :)

Yet more ...

Just tried to go to http://www.cafepress.com/litnlat so I could send wife and daughter instructions about getting me a couple of mugs and whatever as Christmas Presents, only to find that the site seems no longer to exist. Is this a temporary glitch, or has it gone down in the general financial crash? :?

The site seems OK to me, so I guess it must have been a temporary glitch. If it is still down for you, perhaps this might be something to do with your location? (Although cafepress seems like a rather odd site to block.)

Exactly the same: instant alert "Lost network connection". I'm quite willing to believe it is down to the site being blocked ... they block sites which are equally bizarre from that point of view, but as it's done automatically basically, it only requires a few strings which are on a prescribed list (and "press" may well be one of them) for the firewall to go up. Mind you, normally on blocked sites, it just goes on sending a request until it finally times out ... not this alert. Maybe they're blocking the entire hosting system that cafepress uses! But when Keith first launched the merchandise, I could get on the site. Oh well ... I'll just have to get on to the family and get them to do their own search of the site.

Thanks :)

Gutter!!! Gutter!!! :shock: :cry: Another failure. I was aiming for the Sewer. Ah well, I`ll just have to book a few lessons from Paul (the quietone).

Since I am here, and this thread is likely to attract the attention of most of Scriv`s covetous crew members, I, being nothing if not opportunistic, wish you all, A Happy Christmas, and a New Year free from trouble and woe.
Take care

I was drinking my morning coffee while checking out the latest insightful, helpful comments from The Forum (okay I was looking for a funny comment to start the day with) when I suddenly saw a photo of the mug I was drinking out of. Took me a minute ... looking back and forth between the photo and the mug in my hand. Then I remembered which one held the drinkable coffee and my mind began moving forward again. :D

I have received a telepathetic message.
It smells...funny. Never mind.
It seems a thread needs immuring in the gutter. Here I am.

I do not need a fresh usb drive nor a mug nor a long sleeved black T shirt.
But I want them all. I want them like breath.
I want to go on foreign beaches and be recognised by fellow writing wannabees.
I want to lend my tshirt to young ladies on beaches purely for the sake of photos.
I want to take a Scrivener coffee mug into a place of work and airily dismiss its origin as "Oh yeah, its professional writing software, can you understand that concept ?"

I shall now retire as the green fairy calls.

Hey, I'm feeling a future competition coming on... Something along the lines of, "In how many places can you be photographed in Scrivener merchandise" for a prize of... more merchandise! :)

I resemble those remarks.
I do not drag threads into the sewer as you write.
I offer a different reality to whats offered.
If it appears malodourous. dangerous and unpleasant that is because that is how I am in this world. Not look view observe contemplate but live in this world.

Concerning KB's thought of Scriv materials in bad places I know lots of ugly katoeys who will pose with T shirts and wear caps quite happily. I would win any competition and have a lot to be ashamed about.

I, am never wrong, ever. On those rare occasions when all the evidence, would indicate the contrary: the evidence, is wrong! However, in the case of ,"Standards, being really laxed around here." I `was` wrong! I hold my hands up! Dead out of order!! Standards around here aren`t laxed at all.

THEY DON`T FECKIN EXIST!!!

"Lapsed", perhaps?

Although I wouldn't mind a somewhat larger capacity Scriv drive for project backups. I keep my 'off site' backups on my iPod now.

Too true! Definitely 'Dead Parrot'

The Scriv drive is only a means of delivering a hard copy of Scriv, is it not? Surly you`d want to keep that safe, for reinstalls. What`s to stop you copying it to a bigger drive, and utilising it as you want. I don`t think there`s any licensing restrictions, if it`s for your own use, is there?

Or are you talking about a bigger drive, just sporting the Scriv Logo, and no content?

You`ve got to admit though, as a suppository, they are cute. HAL D! what does he know?
