    Hey Jack,

    I just wanted to drop you some lines: As always a high quality episode – and the “pan time”, well, it really made my day yesterday! What a pleasure to listen to “The Captain” again.

    I hope you`ve given up the idea of closing the “audio drama talk forum” of Edict O because I really like to continue our forum discussion. But, at the moment, I´m very busy. I think I`ll have to wait until summer before I`m able to resume the discussion (Btw: I`ve come up with some strange relationship between the concepts of “essentialism” and “simulated reality” that I wanted to discuss with you guys) .

    Again: excellent job!

    Have a nice time and a la prochaine

  2. Hey Peter! I’ll keep the forum open and I know all about being busy 🙂 Appear when it’s suitable. Thanks. I’m glad you liked it. I expect you’ll like the next one more. It’s a hunch.

      Hey Jack,

      yes, I´ll get back to the forum as soon as my time budget allows me to do so. I still have some of Lothar`s questions to answer, and I´ve got some questions to ask myself, too.

      I`m really looking forward to part 2 because “pan time is always big time”.
      It would be cool if I could hit my computer with a frying pan every now and then, too – just to determine “its” note 🙂

  3. Did you ever discover your computer’s note? I’m not sure how I missed reply to this comment, but I hope we’ll have your ears back once Season 3 starts up. As for the forum, I have trouble finding the time too. I have my own time budget at this point (between work, other work, and then other work 😉 ) I require clones. I’d replicate and give them numbers, as the ambassador did, if I could…

      Hey Jack,

      nice to hear from you! I hope everything’s going well (didn´t you move to NYC?).

      I`m really looking forward to Season 3 of Edict Zero. I even wanted to listen again to Seasons 1 & 2 between Christmas and New Year to get into a “distorted reality and paranoia”-mood 🙂

      As for the audio drama talk forum, I simply don`t have the time right now for online
      activities (blogging, participating in forums, etc.) because I´m involved in multiple IT projects. And after 10-12 h working days filled with programming, designing, researching online, etc. I don`t want to see any “screens” any more: no computers, no TV, no cell phones, etc.

      Nevertheless, I hope we can continue some of our discussions in 2013. So, please, don`t close the Edict Zero-forum because I still think it’s a cool thing to have!

      Anyway, I wish you all the best – and don`t forget to relax, too (“To be the best by being obsessed” may be true. But such an attitude can ruin one`s health in the long run)!

  4. I plan to keep the forum there, and, ah, my old catch phrase “I’m at my best when I’m obsessed.” 😉 I didn’t move to NYC, but across the state in Western New York, near Lake Erie. It’s going well, thanks!
