Glad you're here for another year Mr. Pigfender, even if it's against your better judgement. ;)

Mustn't he have "better" judgement for something to be against it? It's Mr Piggy we are talking about here...

I would suggest "pride"... but then... mustn't one understand pride to "win" it?

This is turning into a trend.

I'm sorry... I lost my train of thought looking at the marvelous witticisms in my previous posts...

What were you saying?

Oh, Jaysen, if you are without your briefs right now, we so don't want to hear about it. :shock:

He has no shame, that's obvious. He's been on a downward spiral to the gutter, ever since he took part last year, in this accursed Niad abomination!! :shock:

Fearful of Stockport :(

The other scary thing about this is that apparently his briefs are out on loan for, um, duplication. :shock:

Mr Piggy sir....

A thought occurs to me... what version of scriv should we be using?
And are you distributing briefs as scriv mini-projects this year?

Your own writing is version / technology agnostic, because briefs will be sent as PDFs and you'll be submitting chapters as a readily importable format such as RTF.

I'll be using Mac 2.7 to produce this year's books, so the scrivener project will be a new version project file. If the Windows version that runs the new format is still in beta then I'll also provide an old-format Scriv file, but if there's an official release to Windows by then, just the latest format will be posted.

Good question, Jaysen.
