This is true, though I would argue that there is the normal chaos of the OTT, and then there is the Chaos that happens due to technical difficulties, if that makes sense. And I always seem to be away for the latter. :?

The solution seems clear to me: no more coma for you, your Blitziness... :)

How much cancerbabybaconcaffeine will we need to keep her awake forever?

Why in the world would you ever want to feed someone the strange dirt like substance called Cancerbabybaconcaffeine? People walk on it. BLEGH!

Maybe this could be a suitable substitute? Although, I'm a bit discouraged by its lack of baby and cancer.

I believe the Outside place "Starbucks" has a secret method for this.


I have heard of this place, however when I pass their processing center it smells like fire and burnt toast, so I am unsure of there success in this matter. I fear that they may not have completely removed the semencancerbabiesonice.

Gaseous diffusion is the most promising method. Aside from the whole Uranium thing, a great deal of the resources from the Manhattan project went to developing methods to fractionate semencoffeecancerbabies.

I have heard they had difficulties removing the ice. They probably just aren't admitting to the continued presence of semencancerbabies.

Huh...

I was just thinking that this Newpix has Megan, with a slight smile, her eyelids fluttering, bending her neck so she is able to watch Cueball go down in front of her.

But maybe our minds just think differently.


I'm biased as I just want to see Cueball face plant...oh how his misfortunes are our entertainment.

The existence of those makes far more sense than isolated caffeine.

Apologies to anyone that tried to view my site and got a 503. For some reason my app pool crashed. Restarted it and I'm running again. Will check the logs tonight.

Also, sorry that the user pages are so slow. I will see what optimizations I can make there.

I am not accepting new hat requests.

HQM - PhoenixRising, azule, Febrion, descor, slinches, higgs-boson
PHQMM - 4 surprise recipients.

If you have already explicitly requested a hat and I missed it, please let me know, and provide a link to your original request.

To the above named people: Please PM me with one or two sentences about yourself. I have discovered that this helps me with the creative process. Thank you.

EDIT: fixed mob list
EDIT2: Corrected number in PHQMM (from 5 to 4 - I counted one person twice)

Could be! Maybe his app crashed and kept hammering the fora servers in a looping DoS attack, and it caused a quantum memory-core cascading bit-flux that rippled back to GLR's server, duplicating the existing newpix and rehashing it through a cross-modal time distortion.

It could happen...

OK. I saw the "perky" and thought "coffee", then saw the "jerky" and was concerned that it might refer to the, uh, well, method of semen production...

Possibly on purpose. sliding down a hill is fun.

Yes, one should not run in the hills like that. (Once long ago, I started running down a slope in the mountains, my mom said, "STOP that, now"; I walked about 50-75 feet more and looked down a 500 foot cliff)

Yes, don't get stressed out like you did the last time. (The 'hatting" is a fun time thing, not a requirement.)

Good Lord Randall, there are four, count them FOUR bots browsing the forum!
Bing [Bot], Exabot [Bot], Google Adsense [Bot] and MSN [Bot].

Edit: Looks like I scared most of them away. But now we have Google Feedfetcher.

That looks ... horrible. :shock: Something must be wrong with the Outside if it contains such things. I'm never leaving the safe environment of the OTT anymore.

Also, sorry that the user pages are so slow. I will see what optimizations I can make there.

The fora servers took a dump (technical term for FUBAR'd) earlier -- your app relies on them, so your site might have suffered some collateral damage...

Either that, or Kieryn actually caused the forum downtime. And probably also caused the newpix duplication somehow. ;)


Could be! Maybe his app crashed and kept hammering the fora servers in a looping DoS attack, and it caused a quantum memory-core cascading bit-flux that rippled back to GLR's server, duplicating the existing newpix and rehashing it through a cross-modal time distortion.

It could happen...


Not yet .. at least from my site. I'm still on manual data updates for now. I only hit the fora servers once a day or so, when I'm home1, and only the past 50 NP's or so.

2How do you say that in newpix3?
3I guess it would be something like 24 <= (np mod 24) > 20
