  1. For the FIFTH time, what is it that makes you think we will have advance notice???
  2. OneNote is horrible! I looked at it for 5 minutes and realized it was to Evernote what Notepad is to Word. Having said that, Notion does have my interest. Its web clipper SUCKS compared to Evernote, but it does everything else as good, or better, than Evernote. Right now I am working on a massive home remodeling project, and thus don't have much desire to play with migrating over. And, the problem isn't that the migration is difficult--Notion makes it dirt simple. The problem is than Notion is to Evernote as Word is to Notepad--Notion does a lot of things and has a lot of options for how to set up and "type" each individual folder. That means I want to study it and think a bit before I pull the trigger. By analogy, Notion will copy my floor-plan I currently have over to the new location, but it will also allow me to radically change the floor-plan to include sunken indoor swimming pools, elevators, automated kitchens, etc, etc... Truth be told, I might not need, or have use for, a lot of its features, but I'd like to dig a bit before I take the plunge. However, having said that, the solution I will leaning towards is to use Evernote's web clipper to pull in web pages, and then import then over to Notion for hierarchical storage and retrieval. Should Notion get a good web clipper, or Evernote get nested folders, that equation changes. Oh, for how bad the Notion web clipper is--it sucks as hard as OneNote's. It is simply not usable. Yet.
  3. True, but irrelevant to the conversation at hand. Unlike a television show, which is idle entertainment consumption, a records database* requires you to pretty much commit to it because time spent working on one precludes you form working on the other. Since entertainment is designed to fill empty time, you can watch multiple shows. However, with work, there are usually a limited amount of hours per week one can spend on such, and thus opting into one product often precludes you form working on another. Thus, it is valuable to investigate the competing products and learn what you can about them, and this includes back and forth debate by various users. I will grant you that said debate over the merits and failings of a product really upset the fanboys, but that is their problem. *Calling Evernote a "note taking app" is accurate, technically. However, it is a little like calling Word a "keystroke recorder". Evernote is more than you just jotting down your notes--it is also a way of recording and organizing a vast amount of information created by other people. Indeed, the vast majority of my records are not notes at all, since I did not write anything into them.
  4. OH! I am SHOCKED you have such a poor opinion of him! He made a statement, and I am certain he has a totally justifiable basis for his belief that Evernote will slice its own throat by ignoring the advice of its bankruptcy attorneys and will give us all advance warning it will file for Bankruptcy. Surely you don't believe he made that statement from the gut and without factual basis!
  5. I never thought I would see the day when people openly argued that facts were a bad thing and hating them is a good thing.... Oh, BTW: You are free to engage in whatever conversation you wish. You have chosen to engage in this one. Worse, instead of engaging in the conversation in this thread about archiving, migrating, and porting, you have decided to jump into a side-conversation you claim to hate, and participate in it without adding anything constructive.
  6. Fact: If you are not enjoying a TV show, you can change the channel. Fact: The majority of posts in here are dealing with the nuances of archiving, restoring, and moving Evernote records. Fact: A lot of people have commented on how entertaining this thread is to them. Fact: Your granny had a sense of humor--you do not.
  7. For the FOURTH time: "For Evernote's demise, I'm confident we'll have advance notice and can take appropriate action" WHAT is it that makes you think you will have advance notice?
  8. You are about 390 years to late for that joke. http://www.memorialpages.co.uk/articles/decomposition.php
  9. You are avoiding the question--again. You said: "For Evernote's demise, I'm confident we'll have advance notice and can take appropriate action" I have asked you TWICE before what is it that makes you confident you will have advance notice. BOTH times you have answered that you won't be affected if the servers drop. I even gave you the opportunity last time to simply man up and admit you mis-spoke, and you have nothing to base your "confidence" on. You opted to not take it. So, for the THIRD time--what is it that gives you, as per your own words, "advance notice"?
  10. Actually, in truth, Shakespeare said things very plainly for plays at the time. He used the common language of the common man for most of his metaphors. It is the drifting of the language over time that no makes his text seem haughty. Take for example, "Why, she's neither fish nor flesh; a man knows not where to have her." Of course the audience laughs when Flastaff says that, and then laughs harder when the hostess retorts: "Thou art an unjust man in saying so. Thou or any man knows where to have me, thou knave, thou." I mean, what BETTER way to have Falstaff describe her as a cross between ***** (a woman who has ***** for money) and ***** (a woman who does not charge for it but does it almost as often)? And he does it by taking the common (at that time) phrase "“neither fish, nor flesh, nor good red herring" and turning it into sexual innuendo! No wonder the rabble loved Shakespeare's plays--he spoke THEIR language. Or, "melancholy as a moor ditch"? Is there anything MORE melancholy than a moor ditch? No, of course not. And the rabble loved the fact Shakespeare was bringing in toilet humor that they recognized! And, of course, my personal favorite--Titus Andronicus--the main course at the dinner party? Oh my god! Roman generals, power struggles, and then unknowing cannibalism of one's own offspring! Shakespeare was Monty Python's Holy Grail, Benny Hill, and Hammer Horror Films all rolled in to one! *Stupid Evernote obscenity filters!
  11. Why do you expect ME to walk away, when you just walked up? Is that something that happens in real life a lot, and you have grown accustomed to it?
  12. An yet here you are, participating... "The lad doth protest too much, methinks" That is a paraphrase from Shakespeare. He is a famous English playwright. Here is some information on him: https://www.britannica.com/biography/William-Shakespeare
  13. You act as if I have not already acknowledged that several times over. Do tell, did you READ this thread before jumping into it?
  14. Such is your right! And, it is probably totally in line with all of your other decisions--ignore what you don't like because you don't like HOW the message was delivered. Who would I be to expect you to change?
