Re: Current line highlighting?

I'm surprised you are all concerned about the border on the highlight, when the real evil here is that the highlight line isn't centred vertically on the text. :wink: :D

Not that voting is a thing (down with democracy :P ), but I like the border.

I should add... the forum and event itself are remaining right here in LL-land and will continue to do so until they kick me out! :D

New website now live!

If you’ve ever wanted to show off your involvement in NiaD, or had to explain to a significant other why you need to block out an entire day in October *and* stock up on easily consumed junk food, then you may have had cause to visit the Novel in a Day website. Up until now, that’s been hosted as a ...

Re: What are you writing?

The main WIP is a legal thriller about a guy called Dave. He’s a recovered alcoholic, a terrible lawyer, and a good husband and father whose life unravels when he gets into a car accident with a homeless pedestrian called Roy and a dog called Dog. I wish I had more time to focus on it, but you lot a...

Re: Feature Request - Dark / Night Mode

A dark mode wouldn’t need to change all the UI elements. Anything that is already adjustable by the user doesn’t need to be affected as we can do that ourselves through themes. All a dark mode needs to do is to switch the non-user adjustable elements (toolbar, etc) to a darker version. Yes, that wou...

Re: Advice needed on storage / backup options

I should say, I’ll need about a TB for my current data, so quite a bit more for future data growth.

Advice needed on storage / backup options

Is anyone here able to give me some advice on storage / backup options for a home network? I’m currently using an MBP running Sierra (and Mrs P has a Windows 7 machine). I’ve got an external harddrive that plugs into the Mac as well. I’m running out of room on the MBP and want to rethink how I do st...

Re: NiaD 7: Lessons Learned

I’m obliged to make the world as easily understood as possible. “It’s just like reality” is an incredibly convenient short-cut for that. I hoped that such a well established alternate reality as the Dickensian Scrooge/Marley would’ve been as close to ubiquitously understood as “real life”, but I tot...
