New Chapter At I Work On A Starship

They could put a bell or a beeper on electric forklifts. They could especially put a bell on the automated ones. Sure, it will eventually drive everyone who works near 'em luridly nutty, but think of the children and innocents it might save. Including me! But even if they didn't do that -- and they don't -- I do not care how talented a programmer of servomechanisms you are, nor how sophisticated they are, the rotten machines should not do a happy little dance after they have nearly hit me and rolled up to their destination.

Read exciting Chapter Three of Frothup: Dropping In at I Work On A Starship!

Is this going to be made into a book? Because I'd buy a few copies.

A book? I don't know; I started working the first one into a book and proofreading is going v-e-r-y s-l-o-w-l-y. I'd like to make it into a book!

I really liked the flow of this chapter, beautiful. Alhough, that robotic defiler of Bobbi needs to meet a destructive end, ASAP.

Q: Who owns the .null domain?

Is ASII-art related to ASCII-art? Or is is closer to EBCDIC? ;p
