Any Scrivener users out there who can help with the following?...

Tried to run a game on last night and it crashed the computer. Turned the PC back on today and Scrivener won't let me open my current project. Can't restore from backup as I keep getting an error message (see pic). 

Any help would be hugely appreciated.

Just happened upon the following in Klaus Kinski's autobiography. Sometimes I forget how funny it is. 

"Claudia and I have a week off. But I can't fuck her during that week because her husband is visiting, and she has to let him fuck her."

Kinski is my all-time favourite sociopath.

Sorry to hijack this group for this question but there is a faint Scrivener connection...

I was wondering if there was any way of importing templates into Aeon Timeline in the same way that you can import templates into Scrivener. For instance I would find a broad historical timeline of the Cold War quite useful for a project I'm doing at the moment, and even more useful would be the ability to overlay that on to a wider timeline.

I could do it myself of course but it would take me a very long time and as I'm no expert I'm sure to miss important events. Does anyone know of a website where I can find these templates? Is such a thing even possible on Aeon Timeline?

+John Nelson Until the beta for the new version is released (or if Keith chooses to reveal more) I would not count on knowing what all is going to be included. We do know that there are three versions which are supposed to be released next year. Because of the new syncing feature which is going to be part of the iOS release, both the windows version and the Mac version will be upgraded in order to be compatible. However, that's about all that the general public knows at this time.

Keith Blount did release a diary of what had been done to get the iOS version ready but I have not seen an update of that diary.

Hey, G+, long time no see.

Trying to find a speech this guy did about Internet flashmobs...he accumulated a few incidents and morphed them together into one big story, did it at some sort of stand-up event. It's a  few years old now. Does anyone know which one I mean? Even better, a link for it?

I also recommend a reading of Larry Niven's 1974 "The Last Days of the Permanent Floating Riot Club", Niven merely missed that you don't need teleporters for flash mobs.

Chaosium breaks the sad news that Lynn Willis passed away today.

He played a key role in the refinement and balance of the Basic Roleplaying system, which makes him one of the crucial designers of RuneQuest and Call of Cthulhu, as well as the other lesser lights driven by BRP. He also co-designed the Ghostbusters RPG, which is the second-best licensed RPG ever created, and incidentally provided the die pool architecture for Shadowrun and for the White Wolf Storyteller engine.

He also played a key role as shepherd and guardian of Call of Cthulhu for its first twenty years. My personal favorite edition of the game, the Fifth, is his final statement on what the game should contain, and contains probably more Lynn Willis text than it does Sandy Petersen text; Lynn's text amplifies and illuminates Sandy's brilliant core while leaving the central game design clear and explicit. Indeed, much of the moral power of Call of Cthulhu comes from Lynn's careful writing; much of its vast flexibility in play style and even adventure approach flows from the books he edited in the line thereafter. His last great Call of Cthulhu product as Line Developer was Chaosium's last great Call of Cthulhu product: Beyond the Mountains of Madness. Every Call of Cthulhu product you've ever loved from the first edition to 1999 exists because Lynn Willis made sure its text was coherent, made sure its gameplay was sound, and made sure it got to print. And there's a strong possibility that the thing you like best about it was added or correctly shaped by Lynn, not by the credited author.

An enthusiastic reader with a wide range of interests, he also helped inaugurate and shape Chaosium's fiction line, which by itself probably saved the company at least once.

He didn't do the convention circuit, so I only met him a couple of times, at the Chaosium offices. He very much liked a few ideas I pitched him, but sadly my pitches coincided with one of Chaosium's dry economic spells, so we never got to produce the massive Undying Mars campaign setting we both dreamed of. He was a gentleman, funny and interesting, and I regret the emails we never exchanged and the talks we never had more than I regret the game book we never produced.

Loved Call of Cthulhu, really fun game. Characters never lasted long before going insane though, but that was part of the fun.

R.I.P. Lynn, and thanks.

Yup, the smirk revealed a lot. What a disaster he would be for America and the world.
 
Increasingly clear: not only does Romney have no shame about lying, he has no shame, period. Take a look at The Smirk, too, captured as he left this despicable statement to reporters -- the context makes the smirk just vile:

Pffft. Everyone does it. There's a time and a place though and the aftermath of an assassination isn't one of them.

Guys, have you ever wanted to be on the crew of a starship?

Wait, stupid question. EVERYONE has.

Well, did you know there's a game that lets you do it? I grabbed +Annie Gaus, +Roger Chang, Esther Inglis-Arkell, +nate bolt, and +Jon Sung and we tried to defend a quadrant with a battle cruiser. 

Spoilers: I am the worst captain ever.

Ha, this is fantastic! I once (unsuccessfully) tried something similar with a Star Trek mod for Freelancer - set it up to be a kind of two-player co-op thing; one person on weapons, another on navigation. Things went awry when the helmsman thought it'd be fun to pilot the ship into the heart of the sun...

Get their Christmas album, just for "Winter Wonderland."  Trust me on this.  Or go to iTunes/Amazon and listen to the samples...

P.S., "Keep On Doing" is also a great, classic album, starting with an a capella (but chorused) "Hallelujah Chorus."

Introduction
Hello! I'm not quite sure how to use Google+ yet so leave a message. 

Ha, ha! Already with the jokes! You can't leave messages here! This isn't a phone or something!

All right, calm down. My name is Graham Linehan and I plan on being the first big Google+ screw-up news story when I am eventually caught sending a picture of my penis to myself.

I would like to apologise to my wife in advance for the incident. I let you down. I let myself down. I let my country down. Sorry, I will let you down.
