Re: 1190: "Time"

I think this was the first image. I had downloaded most of the images, this is the copy on my dropbox https://www.dropbox.com/s/hi78e20932arkl9/time.png Yeah, a few people managed to save the first image... afaik no-one has (as yet) come up who saved the URL for it, with the magic hash, so we can't...

Re: 1190: "Time"

I woke up from my sleep with the following realisation, and had to post it immediately; though I had started watching this strip with gloomy/morbid thoughts there is only one possible indication that this post is giving. Randall is about to become a father. I think this is his way of sharing the new...

Re: 1190: "Time"

35 frames and 12.5hrs later, having called in a sick day, time for me to turn in. Hope I can watch the story develop and come to fruition along with you all tomorrow.

Waiting for it...

maybe the name of the picture is something like sha-256(yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm) + .png


The problem arises as to which timezone to even begin to consider, GMT, UDT, PST, IST, etc. The whole world is watching it unfold in sync.

Re: 1190: "Time"

Is it over? Doesn't seem to have moved in awhile. The last change was a very slight one so it maybe seeming still. In the latest image only the size of the sand structure is a bit larger and the position of the characters is moved. Here are the image titles: 470d6f2b03fd4b08d4a3f40c1a969ce84ce7b87f...

Re: 1190: "Time"

Someone make this happen, people will gladly pay money to see, nay experience , this. It's real. It's called a "beach". HAHA.. I meant make the XKCD museum happen. With pieces like an interactive #1110, or this one, or the various other gems on display. The museum would be something to ex...

Re: 1190: "Time"

Has anyone looked into whether the hashes concatenate into some sort of binary data format? Maybe another png or picture or whatever, or a zip, or sound (which would be interesting, given the context of these images). Initially had tried that when I had not realised that the images are changing. Tr...

Re: 1190: "Time"

I guess you could call it art, as it makes people stop and think about it. Really fascinating to see what all the different people make of it and how we all try to work together to unravel the mystery and try to 'beat' time :) It is art indeed. No doubts or second guesses to that. Someone should pu...

Re: 1190: "Time"

That or red spiders. Red spiders programmed to build a huge sand castle. I never quite got the comics about red spiders. Me neither, but I do like references to previous comics. It makes me feel like I am "in the know" and "part of the community". Then when people ask what the r...

Re: 1190: "Time"

After #1110 I didn't think that Randall could make a better and more intriguing comic, but as usual he has outdone himself.

I tip my hat for you Sir, yet again.

Re: 1190: "Time"

I love this comic. It makes everyone just stop and take their time. It's contemplative. And it's interesting how many people's thoughts turn dark when faced with a quiet moment of contemplation. True, and not only that, thousands of people separated by various timezones are all in sync, watching ea...

Re: 1190: "Time"

I was just wondering how this comic will affect the archive, or, behave once the the the next comic is posted? It cannot be expected of future visitors to the site, a couple years down the line, to wait for the individual images to load at certain time intervals. Will this be turned into a gif in th...

Re: 1190: "Time"

The right-most panel in 1110 literally mentions the balloon floating guy saying "I wonder where I'll float to next" Yep. #1110 has the aura of a magnum opus, and that's the reason everyone felt that it might be the last xkcd comic, thankfully it wasn't the end. The best part was manually ...

Re: 1190: "Time"

I get that feeling, and I had it after #1110, but I think it's just Randall being awesome. Ya i remember having had the same fear during 1110 but some things about this one is giving me goosebumps. Maybe because the water body in the far right reminds me of the first xkcd comic "barrel" a...

I literally called in a sick day just now. I would love for it to have a happy end, I wouldn't even mind getting trolled a little early for april fools. Maybe even a last image just saying "legendary" cue HIMYM/Barney reference . Just can't shake this gloomy feeling. Really hoping for a ha...

Her head is bowed down.

I am getting a really bad morbid feeling out of this.
