I just wanted you to know, I *did* read the story.  I saved it for spare 
time, because I am not yet accustomed to reading novelettes while 
sitting at my computer, and I usually use my cell phone for online stuff 
instead of quality free ebooks such as you provide.  On Usenet your 
posts tend to lose their paragraph structure, but that's only fair if 
I'm reading for free.

I read the intro to Part 1 and skimmed the rest, but it got my full 
attention during Part 2.  When I get copious free time for reading, Jolt 
City is on my list of things to catch up on.
