Come here in Paris, you'll get some real cheeses (you know, the ones it is forbidden to sell outside of the country), and some real bread.
Some short stories in French.

Your comment would have more weight if I had been stuck on this continent my entire life. I've lived all over the world. Now if you want a truly scary place for cheese, try Russia; and granted, yes, vast chunks of the U.S.

Keith, the NYT article is fantastic, and well deserved. It's amazing that while I was reading it, I felt part of the Scrivener community, and proud of it. Congratulations again.

And TEA, lots and lots of incredibly delicious TEA!!!! In PORTLAND, OREGON. To go with the excellent cheese and bread!!! I challenge all you nay-sayers and insulters who claim we in Portland Oregon don't know good cheese when we eat it to actually visit and eat some of our amazing cheese and other foods and drink for yourselves before you make such inflammatory statements!! (Can't speak for the beer since I can't stomach the stuff.) 8)

Get some licenses for Scrivener, while they are still available. I fear there will be a sudden shortage of them during the next weeks...

Drinking tea with cheese?!? Oh, no, not that again... aaargh... All the good taste of cheese, washed out by a tea...

Each cheese has to go with the right wine, the one capable of intensifying its taste. Nothing else. Even if I can understand strong beer with heavily seasoned cheeses (like long seasoned Gorgonzola, Roquefort, or Harbourne Blue, and a La Trappe).

Another link to the NYT article from Daring Fireball. http://daringfireball.net/

Came here to see if it'd been seen yet, and, apparently it has. But congrats anyway. Glad I bought in when I did! :)

All this talk of cheese is reminding me... I hate cheese, and the more expensive the cheese, the more I hate it.

Now I can handle a slice of tasty cheese in a salad sandwich... anything else, forget it!

Wow! ... you know Harbourne Blue! Fantastic ... but even better in my opinion is Beenleigh Blue (sheep's milk ... Harbourne is goat's milk), and Devon Blue (cow's milk) is pretty good too ... all made by the same people in Devon.

As a tea (Chinese and Darjeeling) aficionado, I have to say that I don't think tea goes with cheese, but chacun à son goût!

The Slashdot comments appear to repeat the refrain, "duh, don't use a word processor for writing, use vi!"

:shock:

That's slashdot for you, something isn't mainstream until a /. drone can suggest an open source alternative. There is one positive comment from someone using it for a creative writing project.

Nice title (Goodbye Cruel Word) too!

It was a discover of some years ago, and there are a couple specialized groceries, in my area, that carries it. Nice to know of the other British Blues you suggest.

And concerning tea with cheese: hu, maybe with this thread I just discovered a new taste that I will start to love. All considered, Alexandria cannot (by definition) be totally wrong...

But associating food and beverages is an art, where transgression shouldn't go against a few basic rules, or you simply risk to - how awful! - lose true, prolonged pleasure, in exchange of a few bits of immediate pleasure.
