Details seem missing from the story.


I agree.  Details seem a bit sketchy.
He was quick on the draw.
 

It was only penciled in at the time.

Canvasing the comments has proven quite interesting.


I still wouldn't draw any conclusions from it. I'd wait until we get the complete picture.

I see the fountain of wisdom in that penning.

I think it's time that somebody here took the lead.
 

All is well that pens well.


That's penning review.
No pen no gain !

Looks like someone is trying to break the record for nested quotations ?

Thanks !

Actually it's this one I don't get :
Then there was the cook who came to the doctor with an aching ear.
He looked in her ear, and identified a small piece of potato lodged painfully there.
"My dear," he said to her, "your ear is irritated."

Hi, RAR compressed file, emailed home, opened, extracted and saved to C:/.... folder. This was a word 2010 file which I worked on and continuously pressed the save icon to save over a few hours. Closed Word to email file and updated document was not found. Odd but word doesnt show any previous versions or unsaved files.
Try looking for the file name (not the extension) with MasterSeeker that will scan all of your disk, maybe you opened the word file from the rar archive, then it is extracted into to temp folder (erased when you close the .rar) and saved versions are saved in this temp folder, when you exit word Winrar asks if you want to to update the rar file, if you answered cancel or no, changes are lost...

10  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: Eassos Partition Guru Pro--Free or Lifetime@~17$ on: July 21, 2015, 03:50:36 AM
Does anyone know what the relation is, if any, between Easeus and Eassos? The names and products seem so similar...
I don't think so, Easeus is a big company (seems to) with a rather wide range of products whereas Eassos seems rather small.  Their products are quite different in design (partition manager). Unfortuntely ToDo Backup which used to be quite usable is now terrible (over 15h to perform an image where other imagers require 1 or 2 hours). I would call this the "Acronis syndrome"...

I found this :
http://easysyncbackup.com...site/CryptoMonitorDetails, free currently (until the newest version is released).  Of course when the PC is already under attack it's too late.  Did not try it yet.

Oh, I meant a free version for Emsisoft.  I already have Panda Free installed...

There is a free edition ???  Do you have by chance a link at hand ?  Thanks.

Hi, I installed it on a slow PC, a HP210 running XP Starter Edition, where Kaspersky was putting this machine down on its knees, rendering it unusable.  After Panda Free 2015, it is again "workable" and no special error spotted to far.

Thanks all.  Rather than tubes in the garden I think it were streams, but not of water but of something that had the ability to cause time travel.  It's when the main character jumps over one of these streams, which is forbidden, that time travel occurs.  I also remember that at the beginning of the story he visits the garden as a child with his family.

Hi all,

I am looking for a science-fiction short story, I just remember the synopsis, partly. It's a time travel story, where the main character, a boy at the beginning of the story and an adult at the end keeps returning to a strange garden which is used to launch rockets ? Or something else scientific related.  And for some reasons, I can't remember, this garden is flowing with tubes that create some time shifts, essential to the scientific activity.  It's strictly forbidden to come across them but for some reason some day he will, and since that day he will meet a stranger that tries to communicate with him but somehow eludes him. And, big spoiler coming, it happens that this stranger is himself at a different times.

I read it as a part of a compilation of short stories, but I really cannot find neither the title nor the author.

Any hint much welcome, as always.

Thanks !

What's the rough plot or the ending? So whazzisname keeps returning to this garden to "do something", to what effect? And since the stranger can't communicate, is it all futile that the older self is trying to fix something but then can't communicate so Whatever-Bad still happens?



Well, the details are really fuzzy, I read that over 30 years ago. The thing that puzzles me is the kind of link there is (in my memories) with these time-travel effects and the rocket launchpad.  Maybe I am just mixing two stories.  I can't even remember whether I read it in English or French. French I guess, at that time I was mostly reading translated books. Thanks for asking !

May be not helpful, but FWIW:

Thanks, a long list, but nice find.
