On day one of the OTC, I checked in on xkcd around the middle of the day, as I do on MWF, and things were already afoot. It took a while to figure out what was going on. Explainxkcd was overwhelmed and not responding. Thank Randall I knew about the fora! How long has the link been gone now? How much crazier would the OTT have been if it were easier to find? Am I wrong or do you have to just know the fora are here because of the link that used to be there? Isn't this an inside group of something that's already an inside group? (Sorry if these questions have been asked and answered. Even though I was here all along, I was not able to keep up with the pace of the OTT. I tried not to skip whole pages, but often I could only scrape the skin off the top of the ketchup coz it had been out too long.)
Wow, this is a treeish post!
(Not to mention seaish, otherriverish, and baobabish (both 7
).) Ah yes, explainxkcd being overwhelmed that day. I ran into that problem too. And four and a half months later*, in retrospect, I'm glad
it was down. Because if explainxkcd had been working, I would have just read the explanation there, and continued to follow Time...alone. I would never have found this wowterful community. And I'm sure the experience would still have been amazing, but much less than it actually was. I think I can truthfully say that this is the first online community where I've really felt at home. My only regret now is that I didn't delurk sooner.
Speaking of you wowterful people, I've passed many treeish things on my longketchupblitz. I can't mention every one, but rest assured I've enjoyed all the colorifications, ottified songs, and OTTercomics, monopoly pieces by schwartzbewithyou, the Tale of LaPetite
by jovialbard, various poems by BlitzGirl
and the one by Kieryn
(when's part 2 coming?), and the singing by lmjb1964
, especially Megan and Cue.Megan and Cue, Megan and CueCastle-building duo who don't know muchThey're Megan and Cue, Megan and CueAwesomeful adventuring pairack it's stuck in my head again
Also, I see from peeking ahead (bad blitzer) that TheMinim has made it to the present, and Helper has returned. (Hmm, I wonder if Helper even knows who I am?)* Wow, it's already been three weeks since the ___ of Time?!
Post preview tells me that you guys are making those ridiculous puns again. You otter know that's a bag idea.
