  1. The satellite situation was explained in the last Interlude. A comet that passes the planet every so many years made its pass and did some damage. With no one to send repair commands to the satellite system, they did the best they could to affect repairs per their programing. When it comes to Darroot Tea for Jamie and Nic, they are told there is none to give them when they go into stasis. How do we know if it was Charles or Castor who gave the order not to give them any. If it was Castor, could he have done it to try to prevent Jamie from remembering the bad things that happened to him over
  2. Sometimes it pays to re-read something several times. We learned in Book 2 that Darroot Tea was found to help lessen the affects of memory loss due to the Cold Sleep process. We know that Castor gave Jamie all the Tea he had, to be given to Charlie. In Book 1, we learn that Phillipe has most of his memories because he was given a dose of the Tea at the same time that Damian received it. Phillipe received his does some time before going into a cryo unit. If Jamie and Nic had taken any, it was as they went into their unit. This could account for their memory loss, they didn't take it soon
  3. PUNS. 1. The fattest knight at King Arthur's round table was Sir Cumference. He acquired his size from too much pi. 2. I thought I saw an eye doctor on an Alaskan island, but it turned out to be an optical Aleutian. 3. She was only a whiskey maker, but he loved her still. 4. No matter how much you push the envelope, it'll still be stationery. 5. A dog gave birth to puppies near the road and was cited for littering. 6. A grenade thrown into a kitchen in France would result in Linoleum Blownapart. 7. Two silk worms had a race. They ended up in a tie. 8. A hole has been found in the nudis
  4. I've started a reread of the story. I've converted it so that I can read on my Nook. It's just over 1500 pages in length and it's not even finished yet.
  5. There seems to be a lot of this going around. I haven't heard from any of the authors that I work with since November of 2013.

  15. Trust me, I've thought about sending the chapter to a our little group here and start up a private conversation about it. To do so would violate a trust between the author and editor/beta reader. I've built up a reputation as being a good editor and I've worked with a number of authors over the years. I could also be a jinx. A fair number of the authors I've worked with no long are posting anything and some of those occasionally. The last email from Mike at AD indicates that as of Labor Day weekend of 2013, the story will be considered unfinished. There is no plans to remove it from Awesomed

  18. Jamies hotmail account was compromised and everyone one in his address book received some spam. I contacted him to let him know what he needed to do. He was unable to gain access to change his password so he abandoned it. I was able to acquire a new addy for him and only heard from him a couple of times.
  19. "Make it a rule never to give a child a book you would not read yourself." George Bernard Shaw
  20. "Always go to other people's funerals, otherwise they won't come to yours." Yogi Berra
  21. "A friend is someone who knows all about you and still loves you." Elbert Hubbard
  22. You are correct that the saga started back in 2004. The first forum post to appear was on October 4, 2004 at Awesomedude's. There was a hiatus while Jamie was working on his degree and teaching at Penn State a few years ago. The last time I emailed him, I used a different account just in case my main email went into his spam box and he missed it. I got no reply. I also checked his profile at another site and found the last time he logged in there was back in May of this year. As for Chapter 45, after checking, I see that Ricky and I had it on or around October 30, 2011. Almost 2 years now.
