The story slowed down and the post were short. So I changed the bot to post every 4 days and not 2.
And as soon as I did it, the story became faster again.

@mscha I noticed a problem on http://xkcd.mscha.org/faq.html#frame
the text http://xkcd.mscha.org/viewer/123 is a link to http://xkcd.mscha.org/frame/123.

That seems sensible and reasonable to me.

Was hoping to finish the song for the Sandcastle Period, but my headphones died. Will resume work tomorrow when they are charged again.
Also, I decided who is going to voice Megan, Cueball, assorted Beanies, the Beanie Leader, and LaPetite (if needed) in the songs. And as for a hint as to who is singing most of the lines: The green line goes up and down, up and down... Well, that might not be too helpful, but MEH. I shall check the thread tomorrow.

bOTTeriada goes ONG

Postby balthasar_s » Fri Apr 24, 2015 4:11 am UTC

the mrONGbdex story continues.

Code: Select all

 Once he caused all the words to be turned into Olde Ænglisc, another time Pirate Swedish; in one infamous yip *he* became *she*, *she* became *they*, and *they* became *he*; and in yet another yip he ordered all vøwéls åccéntéd sø ås nøt tø trîggér thé trøllfîltérs în @@Gürsågår's førüm. By special decree he regulated and standardised^{2} all usernames, avatars, subject lines, pronouns, and signatures. Permabanning of members -- a rare enough event -- took place amidst pomp and fanfare, with meetups featuring live speeches, parades (and parodies), and floats bearing effigies of prominent members of @@Gursagar's forum who had recently self-immolated as a result of Simdrikarnan actions. This high-minded mod also had a theory, which he put into action, called the Theory of Universal Lulziness. It was well known, certainly, that one does not laugh because of the lulz, but rather, one has lulz because one laughs. If then everyone maintains that things couldn't be better, most especially when posting to @@Gursagar's threads, results immediately increase. Nothing trolls better than a seemingly euphoric utter n00b. The participants in @@Simidirkar's forum were thus required, for their own good, to continually post how right they were about everything, and the old, indefinite qualifiers of *"I``think"* and *"perhaps"* were changed by Mod-filters to the unambiguous *"I``know"* and *"absolutely"* -- though delurkers and firstposters were permitted to say *"You``know..."* or *"TIL"*, and the OldTimers, *"Totally!"*. Contrary filters were applied to known flamers, for example replacing *"clearly..."* with <*:"Though I'm a douchebag, I don't really think...":>.
  @@Simidirkar rejoiced to see his members in such trollish form. Whenever he updated the Forum Rules or changed a thread's title, dozens would post pointless congratulations, and whenever he graciously quoted or replied to such drivel, hundreds more would post: "You know..." -- "obviously" -- "totally." He liked to jump into threads he hadn't read, and out of the blue announce: "<&:FOREGOAT *ALL* THE GUINEAMOLPS!:>" -- or: "<&:|<33P (4L/\/\ 4|\|D 54\/3 7|-|3 71/\/\30D135!:>" -- or: "&ARRRrrrr!&" For there was nothing he loved so much or held so dear as drivel, inanity, confidence in contradiction, bass-ackwards thinking, flashing text, and typos that were easily taken the wrong way. And so, whenever he was melancholy, he would set his browser to scroll continuously, whilst dutiful bots sang: <*:"Troll and Enjoy! Troll and Enjoy! / You say it's a lie but it's really a ploy / So tell it to us, we won't give a fig! / We'll show you, we'll quote your words in our sig!":> And he commanded that, when he retired from the forum, the bots should tag all his posts with his favourite epigram: "Old mods never logout."
  Balthacarius did not get PM privileges straight away. In the first thread he posted to, he waited several nopix, but nobody replied. Finally he glanced at the bottom of the thread to see who was lurking, and trolled one of them directly. The veteran member replied:
  "&Joo no p0s7!n6 sk!lz, nu53r? Dez bits be EZ :O&"

@ucim-related computery stuff:

ucim wrote:why did tablets completely give up on the title attribute (hovertext)[?]

Perhaps their designers realised that reliance on the user "seeing" something invisible is poor user-interface design. Hovertext (typically given in the title attribute of an HTML element) is a form of mystery meat, and impairs any users who cannot read the designer's mind.
  It also cannot be searched. At one point I called attention to the fact that @Kieryn's index to the OTT (formerly here) listed no more than three newwords per np. He pointed out that the missing words are in mouseover text. That was the first I knew about it. His mouseover text was effectively wasted, because I couldn't see it. I was using the browser's "Find in page" command to look for words, but if the word squolpy is in the mouseover text somewhere, "Find in page" will act like it isn't there.
  Whatever those hovertexts are doing, needs to be provided in a different way, which is really obvious, actually visible, and clear and plain. For example, if you are using tooltips to explain how to use the website, then instead you should provide a long, well-written, thorough, and extremely detailed manual, linked from a couple obvious places by some obvious word(s) like "Help", "Instructions", or "Manual". Consider Q04B : The game itself is one screen (about 600 pixels square, or smaller if you're on a tiny screen), but the documentation is spread out across ten long scrolling web pages.

ETA: sometimes if I change tabs on the iPad whilst composing a post, when I return to the forum tab, my in-progress post is gone. In this case, it was easy to retype, but sometimes it's longer, and makes me sad. Anyone know if there's a rhyme or reason to why/when this happens?

Mobile OSs tend to do a lot of culling of things from active memory. It helps make the system more responsive by reallocating resources to whatever you're actively using. For browsers this will manifest as caching inactive tabs and then reloading them when you switch back, which is what causes the form to be blank. I don't know how to stop this. I wish I did. FF mobile keeps throwing me 3 or 4 pages back when I go to do a quick ketchup of the OTT.

ETA: Apparently, there's a bug fix scheduled for an upcoming release of Firefox for Android. Not that that helps on your iPad.

The new aftertime viewer is working for some time now.
the previous bftf and t1i viewers have been replaced by it and are now deactivated.

But than doesn't mean any mustard. All URLs posted on the OTT will work as if nothing changed. Because the server will relink them.

"/bluet1i/" is relinked to "/aftertime/t1i/".
"/ongoing/" is relinked ot "/aftertime/bftf/".
"/bluet1i/viewer" is relinked to "/aftertime/viewer?story=t1i". The parameters are not lost.
"/ongoing.htm" is relinked to "/aftertime/viewer?story=bftf". The parameters are not lost.
"/ongoing.png" is relinked to "/aftertime/frame?story=bftf". The parameters are not lost.

I discovered a different domain name of Aluisio's mirror.
