Re: 1190: "Thing that keeps slipping into the future"

Not to get off topic or anything but how long are they taking to update the pix? And has the newpix changed accordingly or is it still as long as it was when the one comic started?

On another note, i think the web censor went insane.......

edit: or maybe it was just the preview...

Re: 1190: "Time"

There I've don itl I have joined the present and now I want to sleep. Enjoy your coma! Yeah, but if I coma, then I'll have to do this all over again. But at this time, it's mostly us quit, non-new-religion-mad Europeans on, so if you coma now, you can wake up just in time to folow the American Expl...

But isn't that 3 newpix? 8:00, 830,9:00.


it ends at 9, so you don't count another newpic

Re: 1190: "Time"

I believe this is how a religion splits into sects: The Newpix vs. the Newpic (This appears to be a new religion, right? I mean One True Comic...) And on the Newpix side there are those who beleive it stands for new pixels while some think of it as new pictures: I think newpix is good. It feels mor...

Re: 1190: "Time"

Say, for example, that someone might create a Wikipedia article for our new unit of time. Should the title be "newpic"? Or should it be "newpix"? Should there first be some sort of vote held to determine the accepted forms, for singular and plural? I vote in favor of Newpic for ...

Re: 1190: "Time"

snip Soon we'll need a wiki :shock: I need to go to bed in a few newpix. Without one, I may never catch up. Gee Willikers here you go http://xkcd-time.wikia.com/wiki/Xkcd_time_Wiki Or we could take over borrow Wikipedia's Time page. Either way, lets get all the bumped stuff put on the wiki and then...

Re: 1190: "Time"

The fact I know what a "newpix" is is probably a good hint. Didn't we decide on singular newpic, plural newpix? I don't think we finished that conversation. Keithl used "2 gigapixels per newpix" so I just used his/hers/its/y'alls conventions. But what is a gigapixel? gigapixel =...

Re: 1190: "Time"

I bet Megan built something to the side and it's zooming out to them with her creation. Maybe it's a dragon heading towards the castle or something like that. On a sappy note it could just be her sitting watching, and now it's panning to show them sitting together, possibly with a heart emoticon abo...

Re: 1190: "Time"

Well, it's 320 ish where I am in America and I think it's time for me to sign off, though I'm probably not the last American on here. Was nice checking the picks every half hour but alas I need sleep. I can't wait to get up in the morning and see all the progress and hopefully it doesn't end in the ...

"You don't think people use the forum enough? Bet you a hundred I can change that..." Seems like a legit reason for him doing this. Though all of the other deep thought stuff isn't half bad either, but in my experience not everything starts with deep thought as a reason for its existence. ...

Re: 1190: "Time"

I have to admit, this is by far my favorite comic so far. It's nice to be able to watch it as it changes, i started when it was like two frames in and have been checking back every once in a while. Also, the gifs with everything so far are really nice, i wish i had the computer know-how to cap every...

Re: 0903: "Extended Mind"

As it turns out, not only does xkcd have a wiki page, but it does not in fact lead to philosophy. It gets stuck in a knowledge loop, hitting knowledge the second time around 16 or 17. Other than loops this does make sense, and it does work with other pages. The page 'Wiki' also ends in the knowledge...
