Mac time


So, a sad update today.


I lost the last 500 words I had saved on my story that I wrote at work yesterday because I carelessly pressed the DISK picture meaning "Save" on the old version with my USB in the computer, when I meant to hit the OPEN folder. I HATE those shortcuts. That is not the first time that has happened to me :(


I don't remember what they were. But hey, it could've been worse.


I'm back up to 2701 words. I need a Mac and one of those things that automatically backs up your files as you go! (A time machine, I think?)


Good news is, we're getting a mac soon!!! I think just a Macbook. Any suggestions on Scrivner vs. Microsoft Word??

iWork '09

It's the best "office workstation" for a mac and it only costs like $80 for one registration code or $100 for 5.

Not too sure about Scrivener, but you can get a mac with two operating systems, the mac's and windows, and you can alternate between the two systems. Very helpful if you need Word or have to back up onto a windows computer.
