Just wondering. I find myself on the boards daily now that my homework load has grown. Sweet procrastination (from school work), what would I do without thee?

Young lady,
Even on Scrivener`s lower deck, i.e. , A.N.F.T.L ( only the bilge and bilge rats (Portlanders) beneath us) although standard wallow in the sewer, I have to point out that, there are indiscretions even the flotsam `n` jetsam of the bottom deck frown upon. Procrastination and offtopicking will earn you severe sanctions by the forum moderators.

Well, then let me rephrase.

Are there any more people using Scrivener who write often and are around the ages of young-post grad browsing the boards? And who drink coffee copiously?

Thank you for making me feel old.

No.

Drinking coffee prevents aging. That was a lie, but science will probably show it prevents cancer or something in five years, like how they constantly go between "Red meat is good for you." and "Red meat kills."

Well...then I'm glad I don't sniff glue.

Afri,
My apologies for misleading you as to the presence of life forms at sub ANFTL level, i.e. ,the bilge and bilge rattus rattus. You`ve just encounter an even lower life form: the sewerborg, Paul, thequietone. Again, my apologies Afri.
Take care

That's quite all right, Fluff. As long as someone isn't sniffing me, particularly in search of glue-scent, my day is good.

Well, I commend you, stardust, on your openmindedness and willingness to hang around with the geriatric set. I tried to give Scriv to my son and daughter and they both rebuffed me. The ignorance of youth. :roll:

Scriv was a godsend for the first draft of my novel, but NOTHING compared to its indescribably lifesaving indispensability for my second, third, fourth, ad infinitum revisions. I now have a shrine to Keith in my office, in front of which I bow on a daily--nay, hourly!--basis. The quicker the mind and memory disintegrate, the more essential Scriv becomes to basic functioning.

We are all young at heart and in mind here. Just not in the flesh anymore. (Some of us closer in temperament to childhood than others.) :oops:

@Mollys Mum young at heart is what counts, I think. I plan on not becoming a grown-up myself. Of course, adulthood is quite inevitable, but if I can avoid being a grown-up I will be happy. And I agree that Scrivener is a life saver; I've been very sparingly using my trial version since the end of November and finally bought the full yesterday.

@Kendric I will be printing those out and pasting them on my refrigerator.

@vic-k that does also help for nausea, headaches, and general malaise. (We never go to deepest Africa without a bottle)

Ah...I am procrastinating again. I should return to the world of cellular biology.
