      Athelstone I would expect them to be baffled since as it's probably a problem with the SocialGo software and/or the site where the Cloud is hosted. If they are serious about resolving the problem, I would expect somebody to be asking you when/where time/date what you were doing when it happened etc. so that SocialGo's tech staff or the equivalent at the host site could start looking at logs.

      Caducean Whisks How about going direct to Social Go? They're the techies, after all. There's a feedback link at the bottom of the page.

    A most disturbing comp entry, and what a unique voice, all sing song under the breath rhyming. Really creepy!

    I liked the way your October story took us from cosiness to ambiguity, hoping love will be enough to avoid the ninted menace of the future. Nicely atmospheric.

    I was very impressed with your October story, great building of unease and loved the pacing. The spacing helped slow me down too, even if unintended, so I got the drip feed of the story and genuine tenterhooks for the next line.

    Oooo! that made my skin crawl, JK. I can just imagine it as one of those old fashioned B movies and I'm sat watching it eating a bag of pork scratchings.

    Thank you, jk, you are very kind. Your Narrowing World title gives the right claustrophobic feel to your little tale. I broke an ankle a few years back and it's surprisingly debilitating when the rest of you feels perfectly fine. Made me better appreciate the ease of movement I had when the pot was removed.
