OT: Time travel

Time warping - good idea, possibly in a later version :-)

By the way - on the subject of time travel - I'm currently reading "The 
Traveler's Wife". I highly recommend it. The premise is that there's this
guy who uncontrollably, spontaneously, time travels to points +/- 50 years
from his present, mostly into his past, and keeps visiting mostly his wife
and sometimes his past self. So he first meets his wife (or, I should 
say, his wife first meets him) when he's 40 and she's 6, although he's
"really" 8 years older than her.  Sometimes, as in that scenario, he has
knowledge of her future that she doesn't have, and other times, like when
she's 20 and he's 28 (realtime), she has knowledge of *his* future (she
knows the 40-year old already). It's a unique, subtle and interesting
variant on a fascinating but often tired theme.

Best wishes,
Warren Sirota
