Re: 1190: "Time"

When did "newpix" come about as a frame of time? I still like my half hours... newpix is more catchy though I must admit

Re: 1190: "Time"

... The comic for 1190 now just has an image URL of time.png - I'm fairly certain that it was originally linking to the obscured image URLs directly. When I go to "http://imgs.xkcd.com/comics/time.png" I get redirected to http://imgs.xkcd.com/comics/time/3c3566958f0430bb674416ecbd57bf611d...

Re: 1190: "Time"

How developed would it have to be to draw stick figures and sand castles in various states of building? The algorithm could do the bulk of the work, and Randall could manually draw bits and pieces here and there to make it seem more "human". Or perhaps this comic is the product of a numbe...

Re: 1190: "Time"

And as just some trivia, the entirety of China is on one timezone GMT+8 (in line with Singapore). This means that in Beijing and Shanghai the clocks are roughly three hours slow (high noon in Shanghai is around 10am, the days start early (I know because I lived there)). Kind of strange considering ...

Re: 1190: "Time"

If the updates dropped to 1 (or preferably 2) hourly, then I could see it going on forever, but I think making assumptions of eternity based on less than 3 days worth of updates is a little premature! If you removed premature, unfounded assumptions about the nature of this comic from this thread, I...

Re: 1190: "Time"

If Randall had a highly developed artificial intelligence under his control, I suspect he'd be using it for more devious purposes than drawing an eternal comic. I think he'd use it to set up a COD4 toruney Oh I love that. particularly because I'm still obsessed with cod4 and frequently try to set u...

Re: 1190: "Time"

Or it's about how neat sandcastles are. that works too. Sandcastles are indeed neat. Also, is there anybody else who finds it strange that there is no mention of this comic/thread on the 'sandcastle' page on wikipedia? I somehow think there is a need for that. GO INTERNET GOOO!! :D Lets say, Randal...

Re: 1190: "Time"

I bet hes just taking a pause. Maybe hes thinking of building that bit bigger and better that it was before. Maybe hes just quietly contemplating the loss of the original turret *hat tip to whoever it was that suggested that first*

Re: 1190: "Time"

I'm kind of hoping there isn't a "payoff" that you guys seem to want. The way I see it, this comic is a lot like life. There's no real plot in life. Things aren't being pushed forward constantly by the narrative. Things tend to happen day-by-day, one moment at a time. Somethings build up ...

Re: 1190: "Time"

The UK is awake again now though, so there's presumably some English speaking posters left on here. This comic would be less frustrating if there was continuous forward progress. With the speed of the updates, any damage to the castle is truly annoying. And that's presumably part of the point. It's...
