Semper fi, Jim Reply Bob Weinberger on June 21, 2018 at 6:16 pm Great writing as I have come to take for granted from you.. One small typo “… simply because no flying machines exited in the new world…” sb existed vice exited. Reply James Strauss on June 22, 2018 at 10:02 am Thanks for your support and the sharp eye, Bob. I really appreciate your support Semper fi, Jim Reply Jim on June 21, 2018 at 3:56 pm Wow Lt each episode seems to get better and better can’t wait. Reply James Strauss on June 26, 2018 at 5:30 pm Thanks a lot Jim. Sorry this one took so long to get up here. Semper fi, Jim Reply D. D. Hayes on June 21, 2018 at 10:57 am “Degradation over time is part of the process in physics called entropy, and some substances and creations from substances are not within the purview of the technology built into the complex or this dwelling.” There’s a fine line between entropy and planned obsolescence! One is a natural cycle, the other is a manipulation of a cycle…Star’s question is her answer…the expected response of an adversary can be used to deny access to maintenance. Just, as an unexpected result can reveal new options which are more durable. Wren is the logical voice of reason to avoidance of obsolescence. Thought provoking chapter!! Thanks …look forward to the next!

I want to ask why you didn’t start sooner and write more but I think it took this long to get it all properly aged (?). Reply James Strauss on June 26, 2018 at 5:28 pm Love your comments Walt and you are also one hell of a guy in person. Thanks for being in my life, Semper fi, Jim Reply Bill on June 21, 2018 at 8:59 am This story gets more interesting each chapter. Reply James Strauss on June 26, 2018 at 5:28 pm Thanks a lot Bill!!! Semper fi, Jim Reply Pete Billings on June 21, 2018 at 12:09 am It just keeps getting better each installment. Sly loosing his band and be by himself before long the rate it is going. One would think the central controllers could block him from access to anywhere in the complex. If nothing else change the codes needed to use the lifts and nodes. Reply James Strauss on June 26, 2018 at 5:29 pm Thanks a lot Pete, I am rather enjoying the writing of it… Semeer fi, Jim Reply Submit a Comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
