restoration of travel time / communication delay
Communication delay as in IP over Avian Carriers? Next thing you know we’ll be living in our EEA and have to walk 10 km uphill to school, both ways.
but the question I have to ask is “Will this drive more than 5% of my reading audience insane?”
So you’re fine with that amount of collateral damage? :) Seriously, make a “mental stability” questionnaire and distribute your story under NDA to those who pass. Consider me interested too.
