Procrastinating my writing by way of typecasting...
ok I got it! we all meet in Switzerland for the global type-in and make a side trip to Erich Von Daniken's theme park:http://www.cosmicparadigm.com/ufonews/theme-park-investigates-mysteries-of-the-world/
I like using that size of paper too (that's about A5 over here) and I'm not above halving a regular sheet of paper to get some. This way, the typecast is easily completed :)Good news about the new scanner!
A possible paper tip: my typical typecasting paper is letter paper cut in half. I took a whole ream to Kinkos and asked them to chop it for me, giving me a thousand pages to play with. I think they charge about a dollar a cut, maybe two. Makes for nice cheap plain stationery.SG1s rule.
@notagin: I like those plans!@Adwoa: Yeah, I've halved paper before, too. In some typers that works well and other the paper gets kind of uneven. Its all good!@LFP: Nice tip. I hadn't thought about Kinkos chopping a ream. I usually just chop my paper as I use it, not a big deal, but I bet they produce much cleaner cuts.
Are we supposed to answer these questions? Are they rhetorical? If an SG1 in a closet clacks but no one is around to hear it does it make a sound?
@notagainThe "Mystery Park" in Interlaken, Switzerland closed somewhere in the last years. But a global type-in in my country, why not? We have great trains and mountains and train stations at +3000m over the sea level. Why not a mountain-type-in on the Jungfraujoch? :DMy standard typing paper is one A4-paper cut in half, that's A5, and it's very cool. You don't have to write much but it looks like you've done something. :)
Well played, Mr. Lamb-son. Well played:)
I fold my 8.5" x 11" copy paper in half to typecast on, that way the platten is protected by a second sheet below the first. And yes, I still sometimes get uneven paper feeds, especially near the bottom of the sheet. I suppose it depends on the condition of the feed rollers in my machines.
