To post a blitz-update soon
We'll see how it goes.

Suggests I've stopped on New-Page

Until then is now

KataReport #4.1

Page 36 has some concerns about the tide coming in and destroying the castle even as Cueball repairs the damage his tumble did. Newpix 109 goes live, showing a little further progress on the repair.

Beidah wrote: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.


Some interesting thoughts by Beidah. Despite the plot, it still turned out this way, I think, but ymmv. Beidah also expresses a desire for Megan to return, which is echoed by many others, and myself.

A t-shirt is proposed by one otter that says "Time: I waited for it" with the date range 2013-03-25 to 2013-03-27. It's pointed out that the end date, specifically, was a bit premature. More than a bit, not that they knew.

Newpix 110. Cueball has finished the repair of the upper tier that was damaged. Discussion mostly surrounding whether he's taking a break to wait for Megan's return, deciding what to do next, or repairing the parapets directly in front of him.

tastony wrote:I think it would be wonderful if this went on for weeks but eventually the beach is left empty except for two people lying on the sand. No beginning, and no end...


Page ends with newpix 111. It appears Cueball was repairing in front of him and not waiting.

Page 37. Next page of the Othercomic has gone live and OTC continues to update, which is a relief and excitement. Someone suggests that The Past and Time will collide for some sort of April Fool's post. This seems very unlikely to me even discounting the fact that this happened yips ago, because that doesn't really feel like Randall's style.

There is also quite a bit of theorizing that somehow it's going to end on the same panel as it began, and just keep looping forever.

Newpix 112. The third new forum user appears on this page. There's acknowledgement of the fact that Cueball's building the current wall higher than it was previously.

Someone offers use of their in-beta-testing time machine to see how things end. It can only take you forward, but you can get an hour into the future in only 60 minutes!

Ardaglash wrote:Meanwhile, beyond the folks who have been following and participating in this thread I wonder how many casual XKCD readers opened a new tab, saw one frame of Time, thought "ok, I don't get this one", closed the tab, and have been going on with their lives otherwise unaware?


I still think about this sometimes, to be frank. I was one of them for a long time - spotted an early Sandcastle Era panel, didn't get it, didn't bother trying to find out... only after the epilogue cycle began did i hear that it was more than what I originally thought.

mscha wrote:I wonder how long before the first obsessive fan posts a live-action reenactment of xkcd#1190 on Youtube...


I'm... I'm actually kind of surprised this doesn't exist, actually.

Newpix 113. The rebuilding continues. There's some unrelated discussion of someone's signature image which shows as a photobucket error for Kata. Someone's screenshot showing how to block the image shows some sort of short skirt image. Kata is not sure she wants to know. And this is where today's KataReport ends, as I have only so much time in my life and am being scolded to do dishes and wish to keep the KataWife happy.

If memory serves, their sig showed someone in a mini-skirt, with a text to the effect of : "posts should be like skirts : long enough to cover the subject adequately, but short enough to keep things interesting", which I guess is a rather clumsy way to ask people to be concise and to the point. Between that and a rather fidgety avatar, some people got understandably uncomfortable enough to try to block those images.

KataReport #5

Newpix 113. Crenelation time again! Even more exciting, the DONG! It has arrived! And holy cripes it's STILL RUNNING. that's honestly a lovely thing, that it's never stopped...

higgs-boson has referenced the "Compiling" othercomic, which made me giggle. People have more regularly started marking the passage of time in half hours, rather than hours.

Angelastic wrote:Time: You've wasted a lot of this following the progression of this comic. Go do things.


Considering Angelastic has a buffygirl behatted icon, I'm quite amused that they chimed in with this.

Page 39, newpix 116. The crenelation continues.

higgs-boson wrote:Lets say, Randall will continue 1190 "forever". How long until the forum traffic in this thread will subside to 1 post per hour? How long until less than 10 people are looking for updates on 30m-basis?


YOU'D BE SURPRISED, MON AMI.

There's a lot of discussion about time zones this page, likely stemming from the original countdown timer being made by someone in a slightly-off timezone. It's actually pretty interesting!

Page 39 ends just after newpix 117, and this is where my update must end. One day I will reach The Present, but until then, go well my comrades, whoever it is that is still here in the present as I meander in the past.

1190: Time: I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU JUST SAID BECAUSE I WAS THINKING ABOUT THE BOTCASTLE.

Postby mrob27 » Tue Apr 17, 2018 6:15 pm UTC

All right, so, BSTA fans, we have a bit of a puzzle maybe. I'm sure we all recognize the PSAL (Person Sitting At Laptop) as MFBB (My Fellow Botbuilder Balthasar_s). We have a reference to 2016-10-31. If you check the AotT (Archives of the Thread) you'll see that MFBB posted at 2016-10-20 (OTT:2526:16) and not again until 2016-11-13 (OTT:2530:25). Both posts could be relevant to the beginning of BSTA (read them and contemplate).

To get you started, here's the example of the Two Words game that I wrote as a demonstration that it works in English. I wrote it on 2015-02-17 (shortly after OTTerCon):

For Decree:
Don't worry
, we'll quickly
question Yappo
. Yesterday waterottermolpies
were juxtaposed
joyously by
Belial before
basementing. Find
forensic proof. — K*niec!

(And yes, I did try / to regroup into Haiku / but it didn't work.)


I added an extra rule that you "win" if your two words make it a complete story. Then you can say "K*niec!" to declare yourself the winner. It's K*niec, not Koniec, because that word means "The *nd" in Polish.

I hope the weather is better there than it is here.
December forgot to leave when spring arrived, and it's been snowing here off and on all day.

Have fun and tell Rakhal hi for me.

Hi JuneBug! Hi to Rakhal for me! (Meeting OTTers IRL is so much fun!) (Of course I could say 'hi' here, but it's not quite the same as a face to face by proxy.) (Of course, Rakhal's probably gone by now... so Hi Rakhal!)

Love your haiku addams!

Such a Lovely Thread.
