Another Dark Little Corner

Started this before change to "New Blogger", as backup in case of trouble with digiphoto blog "In a Small Dark Room", or rants & links blog "Hello Cruel World" . Useful - at one stage Dark Room was there, but like the astrophysical Dark Matter, we could't see it ... better now, but kept Just In Case.

There is nothing. There is no God and no universe, there is only empty space, and in it a lost and homeless and wandering and companionless and indestructible Thought. And I am that thought. And God, and the Universe, and Time, and Life, and Death, and Joy and Sorrow and Pain only a grotesque and brutal dream, evolved from the frantic imagination of that same Thought.
Mark Twain (letter to Joseph Twichell after his wife's death)

Some Online Document Tools  
Possibly useful online document tools. The best thing to do with all of them is to save often and keep a local copy. The technology systems and implementation are still roughish
"Google's online word processor, [I think it was Writely before - MCP], lets you import documents and then save them in other formats, such as RTF, Word, OpenOffice, and PDF. This makes it easy to convert troublesome files even if you can't/won't install OpenOffice.

You can import Microsoft Word (.doc), Rich Text (.rtf), OpenDocument Text (.odt) and StarOffice (.sxw). Also, makes free pdfs FTW!

Even cooler: you can email documents into the text editor as inline text or as attachments. --"

"the file size is limited to 512 K --"

Writers are using this as "a tool for (a) getting novels to my agent and editors, (b) letting said agent and editors redline those novels, (c) as a tool for collaborating on short stories with a writer on another continent, (d) as a tool for allowing translators to grab the latest bugfixed version of a given manuscript, and (e) as an online file conversion tool. The accounts are password-protected, not open to the general public by default; data stored on their system may be read by 'bots looking for keywords, but that's about it. --"
