ClymAngus!!! I was hoping more of the old gang would wander in! Very glad to see you!
I never read C.O. I did however see the movie. };] Slaughter is a better word for what I am doing I think...

The fingers insist on trying to spell the words properly, Whilst the brain just sits there shaking it's head and demanding I do it all over again! };] I hear Sledge talking like a 1930s gangster but had no idea it would be that hard to write.

Boundry testing...? Me?
At work they call it rocking the boat for some reason...
I am reminded of the old philosophical discussion; if a tree falls in the woods and no one hears it does it make a sound? The internet is fortunately different; as long as we don't 404. Our sounds will wait for someone to walk into the woods and find the falling trees.
My own works go slowly, I've hit a stumbling block around chapter 15 of the second book of the chronicles of Shulth: Exodus. As one of the only people left floating around I would respect your candour on the subject...
