I never dance, unless Tequila tells me to...

I think it's the fact that it lost the competition a while ago to a lot of people's estimation.

Nothing much on the request, but that's a slick looking intro vid

I've historically used Pneumatic Tubes (which I'm still using) and Belvedere, but it seems like you've already found your solution!

Good short (15 minutes) written by Jenette McCurdy of iCarly fame. Worth a look, IMO.

chain saw on the corps

"corpse" actually.

I have to stop using that Opera extension that automatically dis-corrects my spelling.  :)

Yeah, I figured you just left off the -e.

Ok, that makes sense. Thanks!

Tranclusions are another matter. They are, effectively, a property of Obsidin .md files. By continuing to use Obsidian, I won't lose anything I have but I don't have an alternative for other formats.

I've seen you talk about Transclusions before, but I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around what they entail. Do you have any examples you'd be willing to share?

Having a single syllable for both first and last name must generate anger management issues. 

I guess I should be a lot angrier than I am then. Maybe I should try to be an assassin!

Having exhausted the available Jack Reacher novels I have been going through the Mitch Rapp series.

Seems like a weird name for a hero.  Perhaps it has to do with character ownership rights.  I do not imagine very many character name collisions with that moniker.  :)

I like those and have read all of them. Never thought it was a weird name, though. Rapp is a relatively known if not overly so last name.

entered, we have

sphere, I'll PM you the code!

I've just had my invitation to Timeline 3. Impressed on a very brief inspection, and the spreadsheet pane is very helpful. I expect to add it as a core tool to my own workflow. But it is highly complex and unlikely to be worth using for anything simpler.

Thanks for that. I had an invitation earlier, but as my use of Timeline has been limited because of having to use the timeline to set it up and that being a little painful, I'd not taken a look. If they have a new interface to allow you to enter in a different fashion and then just view them along the timeline, it might prove more useful.

Though I see he's developing v2, and it's a bit pricier- at $10 a month after beta!
The email I received seemed to suggest that those paying 5 would just continue unchanged.
But I can see it being worth it for users who are productive with it. There's nothing else like it really.
I might have a look at the new version, but never progressed beyond quite liking the old one.

Unless I just didn't pay attention, I never received an e-mail, and I'm a subscriber.

What it seems like to me taking a look, they are going to be separate products. The two options as I saw it were:

You can continue to pay for v1 and know that it will get no updates and be fine with it (after taking a look, I don't see anything compelling about v2, so might just do that).
You can migrate to v2.

The reason it seemed that way was that to use v2 at all, I had to set up a completely separate account.

A third option seems to be the new desktop app- I might go with that as it's supposed to be receiving updates and should get synchronization (which the current one doesn't have).

I formerly used SourceTree and still do occasionally, but for the most part, I just use VS Code or Git Extensions. I've been wanting to take a look at Sublime Merge- just haven't taken the time yet. I'll add Fork to that list.

As far as Bitbucket vs Github vs Gitlab - I don't trust any of them totally, so use all of them equally, in addition to having a server on my own NAS.

Also noticed that Gingko is moving to $5 a month with a free trial rather than a document limit.

It's been that way for a while (the $5 a month), and it gets you the desktop app too, which is a self-sufficient application rather than being tied to the online version. I think it's been in transtition for a while, but I've been happily paying the $5 for a while.

Though I see he's developing v2, and it's a bit pricier- at $10 a month after beta!

I already stopped using TagSpaces. With largish collections of documents, it really lags. I'm just using tags in my md documents for the markdown, and one of the editors that I'm using - Deepdwn- categorizes by the tags in the yaml.

I use sourcetree and Pageant so I know your pain about the format of the ppk. I'm not sure since you don't know your password, but you can try to regen with PuttyGen from your openssh key and put in the same password you think you used before to see if that helps you connect via SSH.


I love seeing your processes, as they point out places that I can improve mine. I'd never looked at my Zettel from a perspective of taking things from my browser, other than what I explicitly consume. After seeing how integrated your browser was with your process, I looked for, and found, a webpage to MD converter that clipped from web pages in VS Code. Finding that minimizes one other tool that I use - Notion. I used that as a storage space for my web clippings, and used automation to get things out when needed. This skips that step!

Oh Writage is the one that lets you write in Markdown in Word, right?

Ha! Yes. Thanks.  It certainly wasn't something that sprang to my mind, and I don't remember ever hearing about it before. Though I might have forgotten.
And it's certainly from a different dimension.

Writing Outliner had been out for a while (and was very useful as with Scrivener and other mediums, I'd have to export and get it in Word format for submission, but being able to just do it in Word was great). He dropped it for a while for a rewrite, had problems but released the new version, then immediately got started on this, which then replaced Writing Outliner. For some reason, this one never took off for me.

There's also DocXManager (formerly Writing Outliner) -

I'd like in on this. I have and would love to have the latest version. Thanks!

You can get the same discount (well 49% instead of 50%) already without this. Just download the newest version, run it, and then in the registration dialog that comes up, say that you want to upgrade from an older version. That's how I realized I didn't need this coupon and offered it here.

You landed on MajorGeeks:
Thank you for warning me  :Thmbsup:
I do not understand why they put it up there and more I do not understand why they not share origin link.
If someone try to tell me something over there, I do not receive it.
Somehow I plan to make it part of distritbution license to have a origin link included, still free of charge etc... I do need feedback, bad or good doesnt matter. It just can get better.

I'm sorry that I can't really look forward to it / being happy about that.

The link to the origin page is there. Your name on the software page is the link back to this thread.

A Master list of Keyboard Shortcuts for Windows 10 reveals nothing about CTRL+SHIFT+R other than it is used to refresh a page in Edge (it is also used for that in other browsers).


Your example is not a global hotkey. It is internal shortcut that can not survive if proper application is closed. Global hotkeys are a bit different on that point ;-)

Oh, I know that. But I was looking for Windows specific keys that might be mapped over them (it happens).

For completing my renegade NaNoWriMo project, one of the items I received was a Scrivener coupon. I was saving it in case it would help me on the upgrade to Scrivener 3, but it gives me the exact same discount. Active users (registered before today, active on the forums at my discretion) can post below, and I'll randomly select a winner on April 16th. The coupon is good until November 1st, 2021.
