Number two, I realized that the kinds of stories I want to write, and my instincts about what a story is supposed to be, don't mesh well with the kind of setting you guys are building - it's not anybody's fault, but it was somewhat discouraging. Which is why I dropped off the face of the earth around that time.

Sorry to hear about your life getting more complicated. Hopefully, it was either in a good way or you've now worked things out.

Out of curiosity, can you please elaborate on your thoughts/feelings on what a story is supposed to be and how that differs from the OA setting? Not trying to argue you're wrong (not enough information for me to have an opinion either way), but I'd be interested to see what the disconnect is for you. Whether or not that turns out to be something we can/want to correct or that we can point out a corner of the OA setting that you might find more conducive is TBD at this point. But we won't know until we know more details about the issue(s).

Number two, leaving you guys with a couple half finished Emple-Dok-Cetic articles was a real dick move. So, now I'm back. I'm for sure going to finish up that EDC project, and I may well whip up something for those magmatter death balls I came up with. Beyond that, I guess I'll be lurking, waiting for opportunities to make myself useful.

That would be cool. IIRC you were also starting to educate us on the details of reversible computing and how it might fit into the setting. Totally up to you if you want to pick that up again as well, of course. But figured I'd throw it out thereSmile

Glad to have you back!
