Thanks ergman! Hi everybody!

I remember the OTT fondly as a place where I really spent far more time than I actually had available, leading to certain undesirable consequences in other aspects of my life. So I don't hang around much any more but it makes me very happy to know that even though the magical experience of comic 1190 came to an end, the community that grew around it continues in its own odd, beautiful, cryptic and hilarious way.

Love that molpishlymagical double dactyl back there Valarya :) I agree they are most certainly a life-changing invention. jjjdavidson, come out and let us fête you!

Oh, I get it, it's an xkcd 1417 reference. But what are the eight groups? So far I have identified:
  • ???
  • Santa's reindeer (Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, ...)
  • ??? (Maitreya is one of at least 29 Buddhas)
  • compass directions (works only if you start from south and go clockwise, or from east and go anticlockwise)
  • Eight Immortals of Chinese mythology (..., Lan Caihe, Lü Dongbin, Han Xiangzi, ...)
  • G7 nations? (with Russia suspended, but including the E.U., the list starts with Canada, but Italy is 5th in such a list.)
  • The Eight-fold Path of Buddhism (..., Right effort, Right mindfulness, Right concentration)
  • ???

bOTTeriada goes ONG

Postby balthasar_s » Fri Mar 06, 2015 5:11 am UTC

the mrONGbdex story continues.

Code: Select all

  The rock around them began to shudder as the huge robot flew into a rage of its own. It stood up and began to pound its great claws against the stone above the cave-opening.
  "That's not true, it's a molpy! Say it's a molpy, or this rock shall be your grave!"
  "Never!" cried Mrorl, who seemingly had lost all concern for what might happen, pebbles and dust coming down on his head as Balthacarius cowered back into the cave, which was quivering from the force of the Cognitative Engine's desperate attack.
  Balthacarius shouted out in alarm. "M**stard-Ch**rping Steambottles! It'll disturb the berm! We must lure it away from this place!" and then to no-one in particular, as neither the Engine nor Mrorl could possibly be listening, "... but *how*? We'd be lucky to get even a few steps beyond the opening of this cave!"
  Mrorl continued shouting, "Duck, duck *duck!*" only pausing occasionally to jump back in fear from some great stone. These would occasionally fall into the cave opening, only to be swept away on the next stroke by Mrorl's Engine as it tried to reach its captives. The ground continued to shake, and with increasing intensity. The great machine continued its tantrum: "<*:Molpy molpy molpy MOLPY!:>". Mustardy fumes began to enter the cave, and there were sparks from the great bot's claws and arms striking against the rock.
  Balthacarius felt water at his feet, and looked back into the gloom. "The cave-lake is coming! One way or the other we're going to have to get out of here!" Mrorl stopped his tirade just long enough to listen to this, and turned his LED-lit eyes back towards the depths of the cave. He was forced to agree. The robot's assault was disturbing the aquifer, which was fed by the great ocean beyond the Causeway. Even if they wanted to remain, they would be flushed out.
  As the bOTTifactors gathered nervously near the cave entrance, awaiting a chance to make a run for it, suddenly there was a muffled explosive sound from within the metal colossus. Mrorl guessed a boiler burst, or perhaps the gyrostabilizers had failed and the Cognitative Engine's actuators were now involuntarily moving in the direction opposite to their owner's intent. In any case, the blows against the great Rock stopped, there were odd creaking and sharp clanging sounds, and full light returned to the cave, followed by a last few rocks and stones. A startled Mrorl and Balthacarius stepped out through the dust and saw that the towering bot was falling away. They stared down towards the valley as it tumbled end over end down the steep rock-slope.

Welcome back charlie_grumbles! Molpish to see you again! As you can see, there's a lot more literature going on, and a whole bunch of SilentOngs getting a reprise. Pull up a chair!

Welcome back also xpatiate! Yes, I know what it's like to be drawn too far into some activity... it's happened to me many times. Fortunately, Time coincided temporally with a notable lack of usable Outside, so I was able to partake more fully than I might have. There are, as has been said, many ways to Time.

Caswallon - glad you're not dead yet! But we have some dead people here, so feel free to join us anyway!

And it's always good to see buffygirl and Valarya pop in~ almost makes it seem like old times! :)

Hey! Balty got a new avatar! Is his bike being hanged for murdering a bot?

There are fourteen BlitzGirls. Those are people who at one point have felt the emptiness that comes of not having read everything, and gone on a Blitz to drink fully from the One True Thread, so as to experience Time in its own time. Typically BlitzGirls either started reading some time after Time began, or are engaging in Seaish Ketchup after getting too close to the Basement.

Even BlitzGirls can miss a post here and there, for example a FirstPost might have escaped under the radar (though it's likely to be thrown forward by being quoted nowadays), and they could trip and fall into the Basement subsequently.

Also there are those who started at the Beginning of Time and have read every post since; they never blitzed, they just remained caught up. That number is unknown, but probably larger than we suspect.

And there are those who Blitzed silently. They are like the neutrinos of the thread; you'll never know who they are.

I've read (see further along) all the posts except for a few missed newposts. When I say read, unfortunately that does mean some skimming and skipping. Usually songs (which is really unfortunate because I like music) and some other others. I liked hearing how BlitzGirl would read every link and every song and all that. I wish that were me. My brain is full (of crap). It's tough to squish things in there. (lol)

If you read this sig, post about one arbitrary thing you did today.

I tried to read it all but at the high speed dips I have skipped a few pages here and there.
I was pretty much here from the beginning.

Not if the software unloads posts from the page to keep it slim.

U sad bro? Most people don't want to go to the basement.

Maybe I should catch up with the current bOTTeriada story. But then, I have my own to finish. I need to, at least, stop trying to uncloud the future and focus on the now. Focus. Just focus.

Meanwhile near the kingdom of Peagá Pebebê, I've got safira a test harness. It's based on her conversations with the Fora Server and data from my account, so somewhile might want to review them just in case I forgot to anonymize something. Password is our standard one.
