The reason for the rule is so that people actually have to be participants in the forums to take advantage of the contests. But I'll lower the required amount of posts to 25. That leaves over a month to make 25 posts.

I think that rule is understandable. It only seems reasonable to me.

What is the name of the short story by Isaac Asimov about a post apocalyptic automated house? The story tells of an automated house running like clock work even though there is no longer anyone alive to be working for.

That was an extraordinary short story, I'll be writing some shortly and compiling them on my website, but now I feel I need to take a good long time and really think through these stories. I was truly captivated by that short story, It wasn't predictable, and it kept me entertained and wondering up till the very end. Very well written.

loved it! ( i'm thinking that " age wise " this is a more mature author than the others )

Am i wrong?

Great Brit flavour!....

Nice story but I think the end was a bit obvious but I like the story pace and the emotions of the protagonist.
