The Scene for April 19, 2013

One of the tools that has allowed us to serve you, the South Florida Theatre patron, so ably over the years has been a marvelous piece of software known as Scribefire.

It's a blog editor that installs as an add-on to Firefox, Chrome or Safari.  While we're surfing the inter-webs, Scribefire opens in a little window either at the bottom or at the side of your blog window, allowing you to copy and drag text or images into it to compose a blog post.

Or rather, it used to do that.  The developer (a college student) gave up on it a few years back, so it hasn't changed any.  In the meantime, Firefox (and other web browswers) have continued evolving.  Earlier this week, we discovered that Scribefire will no longer open, no matter how many time you click the icon, or press the soft-key. And right-clicking it brings you to a set-up wizard that won't accept any input.

Scribefire is effectively dead.  And we're left with, oh yes, choices of blog editors, but none of them are integrated with our web browers.

This makes our process slower by many orders of magnitude. It also subtly changes the formatting, since the Blogger editor codes text in a slightly different (if more correct) manner.

Anywho, that's why we're so late.  Here's what's playing on the scene this weekend.
