Well this nerfed Harry by having him be a mental case ruined the story.

Hmm... Really hope we are going to be seeing the MC continuing to tinker with machines and electronics, maybe get his computer working at Hogwarts or make a magical one that he can use... Cuz I'd feel betrayed by the Title and Summary if he doesn't

Always a depressing story when there is no Hedwig...
And the MC did not bother getting the books & materials for him to continue his normal/"Muggle" education?

I would have likely marked this wonderful story a favorite had it not, seemingly, died an ignoble death. Too bad.

"For Christmas 1997, Dudley received a personal computer"
I had to get halfway through the chapter to confirm you actually meant 1987.
Just a nitpick, loving the story so far and well written. I'll try to comment again at least once when I finish, but I'm old and tend to forget things like that. So if I don't, don't be upset. :)

I was wondering if you lost your mojo or your muse? Did you look between the couch cushions, behind the curtains, or under the car seat? If you do ever find them, I hope you will remember this story and continue on. There is so much story to go! I'd love to see if Harry ever does more with computers (muggle), and not be a one-hit-wunderkind. I wonder if his new idea will be the magical equivalent?
Did he ever get the mail owl direct changed and the other spells on him taken off when he was in Mme. Bone's office? I don't remember that happening.
Also will he ever gets the horcurx out of his head, and if they are able to find more of them. Will he stay in the magical world, or live between? Will he be an enchanter or a computer guru in both worlds? Will Dumbles be a hindrance or a help? Will he learn more about his family, and are there family treasures to be found? Will he get the invisibility cloak? I'd like to see who gets entangled with the troll at Halloween, and what will he say about his adventures to his relatives at Christmas? Oh so many more questions to ask! Anywho, good wishes to you for whatever you are doing now. Life gets full fast!

Thank you very much for writing this! Whether you return to post more chapters or not, I am glad that I stumbled across and decided to read your story. From the first few paragraphs, I was hooked. I don't think I've ever read a story where Harry is famous in the Muggle world for something non-magical, that was a breath of fresh air! I also especially liked the aspects of mind magic, with Harry 'programming' his mind and pulling on his Muggle background to solve magical problems.
I loved the world building, the portrayal of an actually smart Harry who's willing to listen to others ideas and change his mind, a Harry in Hufflepuff where he's not simply a 'hidden Slytherin' but actually embraces the house values and just about everything else. Just the fact that the spelling and grammar is good is rare enough, but you've really written something special here.
I don't have a way with words like you do, but I just want to say thank you and that I wish you are well, and that if you ever decide to come back to this, I will certainly be here to read it.

Easily one of the most unique and entertaining fanfics of all time.
| SunPho3n1x chapter 16 . 12/6/2022
Great story! I especially like the tinkering bits. Thank you for writing this.

So (a) the old cliche about money theft
(b) Harry is fucking asshole, giving a fake number. And he doesn't even get any consequences for it.
(c) really? a ten year old did that? I don't believe you.

Just read this in a single 24 HR period. Love it, so unique, so funny. Very relatable musings at points from Harry, and the rest of what he gets up to would make anyone jealous. Love it

I just read your story (practically in one go too) and I was really impressed. Aside from some REALLY huge paragraphs that could've been (should've been?) cut into smaller pieces, I've got nothing to complain about.
Anyway, you last updated this story sometime in april 2017, so it's been over five years, since it got updated. I'm hoping that another review might get you interested in the story again, because I REALLY want to know where it is going with its plot. HP as a puff isn't all that popular. Actually, there are many things that are fairly unique plot devices.
I don't think it's very likely, but I am still looking forward for a potential update on this story.

I have really enjoyed your unusual version of Harry and I could hardly put it down. Unfortunately, I have reached the end and I'm sad to realize that since it has laid fallow for five years it will probably never be updated again. I so want to know where you planned to take the story. Alas, it appears it is not meant to be. I will follow you and the story on the faintess hope that you may return to finish it. Nevertheless, keep writing. You have a talent that should be shared and exercising it will only sharpen your quill.

Okay so that was very annoying to read. I understand what you where going for with your language but it made me want to skip the chapter.
