Final Draft fact of the day: if the first character of a folder's name is Ω (omega), Final Draft won't be able to open any of the files inside. If you try, you'll get a File Not Found error, even though it's RIGHT THERE. This took me two hours to figure out.

I'm wondering about the naming convention that uses Greek letters.

Also I'm picturing the software thinking to itself "It's all Greek to me!"

no, I'm not sorry.

https://www.vaildaily.com/opinion/our-v ... editorial/

Let's start with this: It doesn't matter how long you've lived here or how much time you've spent in the backcountry. You're not the exception to the rule.

Since Saturday, June 9, a handful of wildfires have sparked here in Eagle County. Most were small. One, the Booco fire just northwest of Wolcott, burned more than 415 acres. As of mid-day on Tuesday, June 12, the fire hadn't grown, but was only about 50 percent contained.

All of these wildfires were human-caused. And, in these cases, all of these humans were being stupid. The stupidity ranged from the apparent inability to properly extinguish a campfire to the truly moronic decisions to use exploding targets at gun ranges.

Adding to the stupidity was the world-class idiot who decided to fly a drone over the Booco fire. Air tankers can't fly over fires when knuckleheads are getting video with their drones. That puts air and ground crews at even greater risk.

Officials hadn't yet imposed fire restrictions in Eagle County when humans caused these fires. But anyone who didn't just arrive from another planet surely knew that this area is dry as a potato chip right now. They also should have been aware that a "red flag" alert was issued for both days of the weekend.

Those alerts are issued when a combination of low humidity, strong winds and warm temperatures combine to make wildfires more likely and much more difficult to control. Ask anyone who worked on the Booco fire whether or not those warnings are serious.

It shouldn't take fire restrictions — now in place — for people to understand their surroundings. But that's where we are.

Please, people, don't be stupid. Understand your surroundings. Don't do anything to make a scary situation worse. Anything that can make a spark — or putting a red-hot car exhaust on tinder-dry grass — is a potential disaster. And, for heaven's sake, don't fly your stupid drone over a wildfire.

Lives depend on this, folks. Please, don't be stupid.

I honestly think that at this point there should be a permanent fire ban on all federal and state lands in the West.

Our National Forest lands are the best thing about this country and our dumbasses have proven over and over again we don't really understand how to use fire, so fuck it, blanket fire ban.
