Release it already

Just release the damn thing already, I have a novel to work on! :cry:
On a more serious note, thanks for bringing it to life. This saves me having to carry two computers.

LOL… I’m checking in at least once a day, in hopes it will be early. And right now, having a terrible time getting any planning and plotting done because I want to do it in Scrivener!

Thanks. :slight_smile: I’m afraid it won’t be early, though, sorry - but the 25th is only a week away!

All the best,
Keith

Is it only a week away already? Wait, I haven’t combed through all my .rtf’s yet! :confused:
Nah, jus’ kidd’n’. Bring it on :smiling_imp: A week before November sounds just about right :unamused:

I am soooo ready :slight_smile: I keep trying to write and that’s all I can think–Scrivener is coming out and I want to put all my info in it rather than have to transfer it. :stuck_out_tongue:

5 more days! :slight_smile:

Sooooooo can’t wait for this any longer. The next 5 days are going to pass really slowly. I wished it would be released on Friday though, rather than next Monday, so that everyone has the weekend to play around with it.

Definitely hear you there. Monday we’re supposed to go out of town, and I generally work Tues-Fri.

Well, at least it’s likely to be earlier in the day Monday for me, I’m guessing, since I’m west coast U.S. :smiley:

One more day. Just one more day. bites his manuscript I’m going crazy here.

For years it seems I have looked longingly over the shoulders of MAC users and watched them use Scrivener. I vowed that one day I would break the PC habit and buy a MAC just so I could have Scrivener.

Now it seems that disappointment - and infernal cost checking of the latest MAC offering on the Apple website - can be put behind me. You have little idea of how happy this makes me.

But.

I need to know. What time? I’m in the UK. What time will this be released on the 25th?

A thousand thanks. I may not sleep tonight.

I imagine it will be quite late in the day UK time - because I’m in the UK too and will be spending most of tomorrow getting everything ready before posting the link. There’s still a lot to do and we’re working furiously (though a hangover on a Sunday :slight_smile: ).
All the best,
Keith

Alright, thanks for the heads-up. :slight_smile: I’ll be waiting furiously for it. Picture me on fire, that’s how excited I’ll be.

[wanders off to timeanddate.com to figure out what time it is on the west coast U.S. when it’s midnight in the U.K…]

Mmm. 4pm my time.

8pm there is noon my time, 5pm is 9am here…

so I can be reasonably sure to get to play tomorrow night, and anything sooner is a bonus! lol

And just goes to show… I’ve been amazingly productive the last couple of days, doing a whole bunch of planning in txt so I have something to transfer in.

I’m anticipating this more then I have anything in years. :slight_smile:

Assuming it’s released by the end of the work day, from 5 to 6 pm, then on EST we’ll have our download by lunchtime. Which, if this calculation is correct, gives me a few hours to play around with it and work on an article(s) that are due by the end of the day.

Sorry, what is this mythical “work day” of which you speak? :slight_smile: I really can’t say - it would be nice to get it out for teatime, but if I miss that deadline then it will be after the kids are in bed. (We’re a work-from-hope-cos-we-can’t-afford-an-office-type-bunch…) All I can say right now is that it will definitely be out tomorrow… sometime. :slight_smile:
Best,
Keith

Hmm. I think those are some sleepy looking kids. Don’t you want to go to bed early tonight? Like, just after lunch? :wink:

…and then stay there. Until reasonable hours tomorrow morning. Just this once?

Ok, I should have this in max. 24 hours…

:smiley: :smiley: :smiley: :smiley:

Argh! It’s the 25th and it’s 2.49am here, so release it already! :laughing:

[size=50]Just joking, letting out some steam of itching impatience here.[/size]

I hope you guys are taking into consideration the fact that there are probably going to be hundreds of you trying to download it the moment the link is there … Bandwidth? Download speeds? … Those of you on dial-up not only won’t have any finger-nails left, you won’t have any fingers left to type with!

I’m really looking forward to Scrivener v2 for the Mac, but for that reason I’m going to hold myself in patience for a day or two to let the feeding-frenzy die down.

Scrivener is not just for a day, it’s for a life, so waiting another day or so is no big deal. Mind you, of course, you poor Windows users dont have v. 1.54 to use in the meantime, so your extremes of anticipation are understandable.

We already use Amazon’s S3 to distribute the main DMG, so the traffic hit will be mostly on the HTML pages not the binary downloads. I don’t think we are going to be crashing Amazon AWS any time soon. :wink:
