Man, the minute you go off on a debugging tour of the past, everybody 
starts talking about you. How do they know?

It is currently in Alpha. Alpha Centari. I had a little slip-up.

It isn't an external, sorry. Since there is nothing else quite like it, 
it must stand alone.

Thanks for this, I keep trying to get that across. The warp is be-weft 
right now but I'm working on it. The paradoxes are something of a 
problem at present. I mean, at past. That is, they will be a problem.

This is an astute observation. I registered the patent a few years from 
now but the details got tangled up. Apparently they don't believe I have 
such a thing, even though I was (briefly) able to pop into their offices 
without going through the door. Instead, they fired the security guard.

I beg your pardon, rumors of my demise are greatly exaggerated. Or they 
will be. Of course, there's always the possibility I skimmed over that 
event. I did end up in the Jurassic once, but that's not really 
obliteration, it's more like pre-cognition with physicality.
