    Couldn't the sample be 2 pages? It's already agony waiting 25hrs for the next one. And while I'm open to the tease - it being a pleasure in its own right - can't the powers that be here give just a little bit more tease, please?

    David wouldn't normally have what? What??? It is cruel and wicked to tease us like this. I don't know if I can take another 22 of these :-)

    I registered my complaint in this matter yesterday. It still hasn't been fixed. What is this, Telkom?? I want TWO pages minimum, please.

    I don't think they're doing the incremental hour thing... that would get confusing. It's just the wording 'which will be run in hourly sequence every day'. It means the chapters will be in hourly sequence... like midnight, then 1 a.m., then 2 a.m., etc.

    Correct, Louis: it's one/day, in hourly sequence as the stories appear in the book.
