Remembrance

Well, I'm still not particularly fond of this little prologue of yours; I just didn't really feel the emotion that you were trying to get across, but maybe I'm just a cold, callous bastard. Or maybe it's just not great, who knows? All I want to know is... who the Hell is Galland, mentioned once in the first line of your prologue before being forgotten completely?

Btw, I read some of the earlier repsonses and it sounds like you had a decent little story coming along. Why'd you take it off? I know long things are somewhat intimidating to read to some, but I'd rather get into a story and encourage its author than to read something short and (to me) pointless. So lemme see what you've really got, Halahan.

That was his friend. 'Run.' telling him to run. he runs the other way, looking for his wife.

You see though, I didnt like where it was going.

Ah, I understand now. Well, I know you're a pretty good writer, so get back to work! I need me some literature.

Alright, I'm back on track hopefully. Took a pretty long break, but here's the first chapter. Comments and Crits welcome as always, and its not as long as it looks to try to at least start reading it.

Where as for me... this isn't a fantasy world. this is just the future, however odd that may seem. Where that spire rises up and where the Lites live is Earth... plain and simple.
Dude, if you expanded on that idea and included it later on in your story, I think it'd be fuckin' brilliant. By the way, I always thought you were older, Halahan, because you are a pretty good writer. Damn kids're gettin' to smart these days. I think it might be time for the harvest... enjoy your 'Sad Birthday,' bwahahahaha!

Alright. I would really like a good review please :(. If there's nothing wrong with it, thats fine and tell me so. I just haven't really gotten a review on this novel I'm writing yet, and I'd really like one.
So, what I'm trying to say is.

bump :p

i dont know what to say, everyone's already said it

talented, intriuging... there could be improvement but, nothing is perfect so... as a rating, i would probably give it like 4.5/5.

The storyline and background is really good. The downfall was that it's a little repeatish and... confusing and some times... but althogether good. :D

thanks for reading.

"little repeatish and... confusing and some times."
could you cite specific examples? I'm not saying your wrong, I just want to know what it is so I can improve.
and the 4.5/5, If you were trying to be nice thats good, if not thats really good, but I can take critical err... critiques :p.

    I have a buddy in Florida who has an extra office space for me with a computer so I can do anything so likely I will be going up there wednesday or thursday
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Let me know if there's anything I can do to help.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    thank you Ghan

    I'm sorry to hear that bro
  • Varine Varine:
    Not to distract but is anyone aware of any software to help visually impaired people interact with their PC?
  • Varine Varine:
    Also what's the best way to ship a PC? Should I just wrap the fuck out of it in the case or put the components in static bags and wrapped up individually?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    The GPU is the biggest danger typically.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Some of the pre-built vendors use expanding foam to fill in the case and secure the GPU. Otherwise it might be best to remove it and ship it separately.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Similar if the machine has a large tower CPU cooler installed. Those can experience huge forces and destroy the socket during shipment if they are heavy.
  • Varine Varine:
    So mainly just the heavier things that jut out? I'm planning on pulling out the SSD's too and anything that I don't have well secured. I'll probably be good leaving the motherboard and PSU screwed in there though if I bundle it up?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah, I'd expect those to be fine. It's mainly the heavy stuff that is also long/tall where dropping the case would cause it to exert a ton of force on the mount. The motherboard will be fine screwed into the board unless the case itself is somehow severely damaged.
  • Varine Varine:
    I have the original packaging for it, so I was going to just put it back in there
  • Varine Varine:
    I don't think I have the boxes for the components though and so I don't want to have a bunch of loose shit bouncing around
  • The Helper The Helper:
    damn I just read that lol
  • The Helper The Helper:
    when i read up and saw spray in foam I was like oh shit
  • The Helper The Helper:
    going to do the last controller giveaway in the NUON Dome forum because I just cannot sell them since I got them for free from a deceased NUON Legend. It is my last one from that.
