Re: 1190: "Things that are on my side for 600, Alex!"

Every time my family goes to the beach, we like to build sand castles and subsequently destroy them. It is the greatest pastime I can think of!

Re: 1190: "Time"

I thought it would be worth mentioning that we are currently averaging about .62 NewPages per newpix. I wonder if we will ever catch up...

EDIT: by "catch up" I mean newpage/newpix >= 1.

Re: 1190: "Time"

Soo.......I guess the question is, why didn't it update at the beginning of the NewPix? Just a random glitch? Or a lag or something related to how many people are trying to view it? Or is it possible that the length of a NewPix going to change? If we go solely on the amount of forum viewers, I don'...

Re: 1190: "Time"

I find myself even more intrigued with the development of the newpix. What could be coming? Who will show up? What will the next castle bring? Should we declare pages 63-66 the "dark newpix" and make the sleepers study it like a history class? Or we could just stay on topic. That's good too.

Re: 1190: "Time"

Technically speaking, a newpic isn't exactly equal to a period of 30 minutes; it is a measurement of how many new frames will be or have been posted to the One True Comic. Anything more precise than that is meaningless, because there are only two states of being -- looking at a new frame, or waitin...
