    SORRY! Don't Avoid Scrivener

    I got a reply to my email to Scrivener tech support asking why my license had been revoked. They asked me to give the error message that I get when I try to re-activate Scrivener with my key. So I tried to re-activate it, and it re-activated. :facehoof:

    RETRACTED: Avoid Scrivener

    THIS IS ALL STUPID AND WRONG.
    I'm saving it so I can contact people who read this post, and don't comment on (& might not have read) my retraction.

    In previous blog posts, like this one, I recommended Scrivener as a very useful editor for writing fiction.

    WallStreetBets is a cult

    You Can't Squeeze the Same Lemon Twice

    I've been looking into the recent GameStop (stock symbol GME) saga, including lurking in reddit/WallStreetBets. I'm not gonna write my usual lengthy explication, supported with references and quotations, 'coz I'm busy. But I want to warn you ponies not to go ape for GME.

    Don't Forget

    I've visited every historical museum, festival, re-creation, or archeological site that I had the chance to since I first got my driver's license--except US civil war re-enactments. They made me nervous.

No more blog post voting · 12:56am Feb 26th, 2016

I deleted "blog post voting" from my Patreon.

- It wasn't working, since I had such a backlog of voted-for but unwritten blog posts that we weren't doing any more voting.
- The voted-for topics refused to cooperate when I tried to write them.
- I'd said every other post would be one voted for, so I ended up just not writing blog posts.
- The one person who was signed up for blog post voting isn't signed up for it anymore.

I wrote 13 milestone goals on my Patreon page, mostly for humor. This is your last chance to see them. In March, Patreon is forcing me to use a new, Windows 8-inspired page format under which only the next milestone goal will be visible. Because why use links to organize things when you can just throw a few random items together onto one page and assume nobody wants to see anything else?

Wondered what had happened to you. <.<

Well I wouldn't mind seeing a mortality report longfic of course...

...Patreon is forcing me to use a new, Windows 8-inspired page format under which only the next milestone goal will be visible.

And I thought with Windows 10, we could finally put the international nightmare behind us.

3778267 They've done tests which indicate the new format leads to more donations.
