Re: 1446: "Landing"

I just noticed there's still one whale in there. It is HIDING! But it is not so smart! Why does that phrase sound so familiar? I thought that sounded familiar too. I feel like Björk said it in a previous xkcd, but I can't figure out which one. http://www.negrophonic.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/02/b...

Re: 1416: "Pixels"

This isn't working for me at all in Firefox 31 or 32, even on two completely different computers. IE11 works fine, though. (See? It's good for something.) All I get is "Book Launch" in seemingly random places. Before I saw this thread (and was inspired to try IE) it struck me as painfully...

Well, there have been multi-part comics before:

264 to 268
341 to 345
494 to 498
577 to 581

Do they count?

Re: 1190: "Time"

So... Cueball spots land to our right. If the stars don't lie, we're looking ESE, so the land is to the south. What could it be? Africa? Probably not, it seems unlikely that the current would bring them there, with a huge inflow from Gibraltar. Maybe Corsica or Sardinia? Or one of the Balearic isla...

Re: 1190: "Time"

Newcomers. Tell us about your handles. The regulars have mostly done so in the past. Mine is just an alter ego, without relationship to my TrueName. And since I'm grumbly, after you do so, get off my porch. :twisted: This is a nickname that got given by friends to my World of Warcraft character, wh...

Re: 1190: "Time"

The differences are: ⋅  Apocryphal frames . Something went wrong, way back, and two separate series of images were released every newpix. The GLR later fixed this by making the images for both series identical, but you can see the original ones in my viewer. The canonical listing (i.e...

Re: 1190: "Time"

Cueball seems to be looking backwards, are they being followed? Or maybe he's just looking at their earlier campsite.

Re: 1190: "Time"

@Xenocat, what's that in M? The last frame that Geekwagon has correct is G2964 = M2959. It then skips ahead to G2965 = M2967. Then G2966 and G2967 are identical to each other and = M2968. And G2968-G2973 seem to be not loading at all, instead staying on whichever frame you were viewing previously, ...

Re: 1190: "Time"

Hmm, it appears the Geekwagon site hasn't gotten any new frames in a day or two... I was just wondering if anyone else had noticed that, or if it was only broken for me. It's stuck on frame 2964 (by its numbering), which is now about 8 frames out of date. And now it's updated, but is missing a few ...

Re: 1190: "Time"

But my main pondering involves lurkers who're signed in. Are they people who are working up the courage to say something? Are they bots? Are they bread crumbs left for us as a clue? Or are they an order of monks, blitzing in silence, but wanting us to feel their solidarity with us? If you're logged...

Re: 1190: "Time"

Hi One True Thread and denizens thereof. Insert standard "been following xkcd for years, and Time since its beginning, and just now de-lurking" introduction here. I almost posted during the Fading when it seemed like it was all coming to an end, but managed to resist, until now. I was surp...
