The machine stops

Well I had a fine weekend, which included rambling a little about old-style sci-fi. So heres the link I muttered to people about:

The Machine Stops by E.M. Forster (1909).

In other news I’ve just had fun fixing up my testing environment, so onto Stage 2 testing (mailing lots of docs back and forth between accounts on one system and packet dumping).

    Well, I’ll be a monkey’s uncle, I think one of my teachers read that out to us one morning at assembly in the school chapel. I can’t be certain, it was a good while ago, but it rings a very loud bell!

    Oh, and the term you want is ‘scientific romance’… ;o)

      I think I must have read it about that time in my life, although I can’t recall if I studied it in school or read it in a compilation of other stuff, good stuff however.
