At least, it made Brian give me a weird look. 😉
I’m considering doing all my composing in plain text rather than Open Office or AbiWord. Why?
- More portable–easier to sneak in work on other machines (*coughcough*the office*cough*).
- I won’t need to convert the story to text to submit it to Critters or my email-based crit group.
- This way I get the full benefit of all of subversion‘s features, including diff and conflict resolution. Plain text also takes up less room in subversion’s repository.
- Zippier performance–I noticed a significant drag in saving my NaNovel.
It’s really the subversion benefits that convince me. I’ve already had to resolve a conflict with a binary file. Ugh. I’d really rather not do that again, but knowing me, I will.
