"Electronic components? Hah! When I wrote my novel there were no electronics! I had to draw the Scrivener window on a piece of wood, and re-draw it every time I made a change in the Binder! You folks that had electronics were lucky!"

Oh, well, you were lucky. We used to dream of a piece of wood! We had to chisel ours -- Binders and all -- out of stones. And no Scrivenings mode then, because our poor mum had no kind of money for a wheelbarrow -- what with seven mouths to feed.

Hah! You had chisels?? You were lucky then We had to use our teeth to carve in the rocks. Luckily there were fifteen mouths, so plenty of teeth.

size reduced to protect the stone eaters who likely can't read print this small :P

Yeah, this forum is THE ultimate time waster. It's more worse than Facebook. Have to find a healthier fix.
