Well, piggy should be glad I can’t reach him. If I could I’d be angrily eating some BBQ.

Not my favorite. This will be a horror show.

HIYA EVERYONE!

All the briefs have been sent out. If yours hasn't arrived in a few mins then let me know.
Also - a sensible check to make sure you've got the right brief - it should have your name on it!!!!

Sorry I've been quiet over the past few days. There really could not have been a worse week at work to be preparing for a NiaD!!!!!!!

Got mine. It wound up in my spam folder. If you haven't gotten yours yet, you might want to check there.

It’s not that I dislike the NiaD. It is the one un-negotiable event of my year. But this particular brief.... bah. Piggy seems to be seeking out some type of vengeance for all my posts here when it was Mac exclusive.

I’m sure I deserve it if that’s his game.

Does that make it less true?

Anyone else complain of all the tables being black on black?

And I literally checked for updates at 5:30. Now OSX is forcing them installed even though I have that turned off. As bad as Microsoft.

HELLO! FOR SOME REASON, SOME PEOPLE ARE REPORTING THE TABLE FOR THEIR BRIEF SHOWING AS BLACK ON BLACK. I SUSPECT THIS MIGHT BE SOMETHING TO DO WITH HOW YOUR RTF READER IS PARSING THE TABLE.

IF THIS IS AFFECTING YOU, PLEASE TRY OPENING YOU BRIEF IN ANOTHER APP. IF YOU STILL AHVE PROBLEMS LET ME KNOW AND I'LL EMAIL YOU A READABLE COPY.

Nothing on OSX opened the file other than black on black table. But, scrivener let me set column 1 to black text on "nothing. background. Looking at the RTF (which hurt my head) it does look like a legit background color being set.

Anywhoooo.
