Have you tried Teamviewer?
 
+WebEx sucks, even on OS X.

That is all.

Can anyone recommend a cross platform (Windows/OSX/Linux) screen sharing program?

Google contacts seems to have removed the ability to click on phone numbers and make calls with Google Voice.  I know that Google wants to force us to use G+, so I looked at hangouts but don't see any replacement for contacts or voice yet.  I just see the usual mess.  Wonder if I'll be able to port my google voice number to wherever Google eventually drives me?

Lots of them.  But I also tried two browsers, Chrome as well as my usual FF, and didn't see the little icons.

This morning, however, they are back in FF.  I did restart just now, but I believe I'd done that yesterday.

Oh Gawd!  Apple has improved things again!!

Can someone tell me how to get books on my Mac (PDFs and ePUB) onto my iPad using iTunes?  I used to be able to drag the books into iTunes and drop them.  No more.

I'm trying to export markdown from Scrivener.  I've read Hunder Emkay's long article about using markdown in Scrivener, and I see the repeated assertion that Scrivener can export Markdown, but there's no explanation of how to do it.

The Scrivener Export command doesn't have any mention of markdown.  I can export plain text files, but they don't have any kind of Markdown header records.  And I certainly can't find a way to get .md file extensions.

The Compile command says it can export to MultiMarkdown, but I get a bunch of weird .png files.

I know I'm doing something wrong, but I can't find simple instructions to do this.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
ge

+George Entenman Have you taken a look at the User Manual section on using MMD in Scrivener? I ask because it looks as though you're skipping the MMD syntax in some cases like bold and italic, which means you're probably not going to get the output you're expecting. With only a few exceptions, all rich-text formatting is stripped during the compile process to MMD. The "MMD and Scrivener" portion of the "Using MultiMarkdown" section goes into the few rich-text features that have meaning on compile, and options for converting formatting to MMD.  (You can access the PDF user manual from the Help menu in Scrivener.)

To get the headers, in the Compile window click on "Formatting" over on the left, then click the checkbox in the "Title" column for the document group row and the single document row. (You might as well check it for the folder row, too, although you don't have any folders compiling in your sample project.) You'll see the sample "Title" text added to the preview area below, with the hashes around it. The correct number for the item's depth in the outline will be added automatically during compile.

To get the .md file extension, just type it as part of the file name, e.g. "MyNovel.md". It's just a plain-text file and will use the .txt extension by default (though you can deselect "If no extension is provided, use ".txt""). There's no standard or single required extension for MMD, so .txt works just fine here, but you can easily enter whatever you want.

It's clearly time to replace our roof, this time with a metal one, so I asked a neighbor who had just done it for a recommendation.  She said "Mark Sligh with Cool Metal Roofs".

That should be simple to Google, right?  Wrong!  So I had to turn to duckduckgo.com, another, wonderful search engine that listened to what I'm asking for and found the answer as its first hit!

Searched on my phone omitting the name of the guy. And I that business was the first result. So I'm guessing adding someone's name to the query throws the AI off.

Interested in Dropvox  but worried because some apps require access to the whole DB folder, not a subfolder.  Unable to find this info about DV until I found this great site where the first comment about DV answers one of my questions.  (The other is can DV just talk to the DB app and not require a live internet connection?  Going to look now.)

Discovered that this site only reviews Android apps.  Too bad.

I've been getting my hair cut and beard trimmed by Mike Cantrell since about 1981, when Take One Haircutters was still up on Franklin Street near UNC. Mike, who owns Take One with his wife Janice, is not only great at hair styling, he's also a lot of fun to spend time with. I'm never bored as he works, and the results are wonderful. The fact that Mike is booked months in advance indicates just how good he is. I can't speak to the quality of the other haircutters. The regulars, who have been with Take One since I started going there, are Janice and Nelson. Sometimes they have rented out a chair to other people. That's the way this business apparently works. Is the place "in shambles", as asserted by an anonymous 'A Google User'? It seems okay to me. I do know that business is tough.. For one thing, hair styles have changed: all the young men seem to be shaving their heads or getting buzz cuts - styles better suited for the cheap in-and-out hair places. And, of course, the effects of the Bush recession continue to hurt many businesses as people cut back. BTW, as I type this, I see a notice from Google saying that my post will have my name attached to it. How did *A Google User* become someone's name?

Vimala is one of our community's treasures. She reminds me of Jamil Kadoura, owner of Mediterranean Deli, just down Franklin Street. Both of their restaurants contribute enormously to the community. These are the kind of businesses that I want more than anything to like. Thank goodness both have fantastic food. Vimala's has a very relaxed atmosphere with a choice of places to sit - indoors in the entrance area, indoors in a quieter room to the side and outdoors in a very peaceful and bright patio. This is a place to come and sit awhile and enjoy conversation and wonderful food.
