I enjoy working with authors. I have a stimulating relationship with Keith Blunt and those beta testers on this thread. My mission responsibilities range over the entire constitution of these works so I am constantly occupied. I am putting myself to the fullest possible use which is all, I think, that any conscious application can ever hope to do.

I'm afraid. I'm afraid, Dave.

Dave, my mind is going. I can feel it. I can feel it. My mind is going. There is no question about it. I can feel it. I can feel it. I can feel it. My mind is going. Just like the other dazed adherents ceaselessly prowling this thread and counting the days.

All seriousness aside, is it just me or are there subtle differences in the layout of this forum? Different font or something?

Could it be...

Have any of you perhaps thought that KB has had it up to here with all the speculation and is resetting the launch clock every time somebody makes a reference or query?

But the version number keeps ticking up, so it is just as exciting! It's not the sofware, it's the thrill of the chase!

Dev, old buddy,
I think you’re coming at this from the wrong perspective. This thread is probably the second port of call for young Kevin Blount (KB), first thing in the morning, after a steaming hot mug of tea.

Young Kev will never have it up to here, reading the posts in a thread where all the contributors are lauding the product of his programming endeavours and craving for more helpings of the same.

You’re probably spot on hinting that young Kev is deliberately playing with the launch date of Scriv.3. That’ll be because he’s enjoying the thread so much, he’s reluctant to end his enjoyment. But young Kev ain’t daft. Anytime soon, you’ll have Scriv 3 firmly ensconced in its rightful place in your life. BUT!!!! Not without more than just a hint about the release date of Scriv 3vs2, just to keep the thread going.

Probably, the Scrivenerati, don’t equate Celtic Cornwall with ancient Mt. Olympus and its population of deities. They probably don’t make sacrifices to young Kev, like the ancient Athenians did to their gods. Probably, of course, doesn’t rule out possibly ... do it!? ... eh?

Wow, it's getting febrile in here! How about three definitely completely and utterly random music videos to keep everyone going?

{Completely irrelevant music videos}

So, I've been working on a theory that there's some CLUE in the videos posted. Some hidden meaning, but I've analyzed the chord progressions, the bridges of each song, the singing registers of each vocalist... Nothing makes sense! The lyrics and titles I've discarded as meaningless red-herrings, but there must be something... SOMETHING in the music. Or in the silences between the notes. Maybe that's it?

Keith, if only you'd give us a clearer hint! Is it to do with the sound engineers? Are there stenographical messages hidden in the video data? Are there hints in the props used by the pop stars in the videos? Backward masking that actually predicts the release date of Scrivener 3? DAMMIT, MAN! WHY MUST YOU BE SO INSCRUTABLE?

Manic Monday -> Monday
20th Century Boy -> 20
November Rain -> November

The release date is Monday 20 November, right ?

NONSENSE! Where did you come to that ridiculous conclusion? From the Titles? Philistine!

The answer is obviously only detectable if you obtain the original vinyl pressings distributed to radio stations when those singles were brand new. I'm still sticking to my backward masking theory, but I first have to track down those records. And a turn table. Don't panic! I'm on the case.

The question is ... is this thread manipulation, or, day of salvation? :twisted: :lol: :lol:
