Oh, treeish. That confirms my Vocaloid theory. We also now know that @Caprice plays Kerbal Space Program, if that's a hint… Blitzrockets are molpier when they're LEML!
  Some other names of synthetic voices, apart from "VOCALOID4", are "Kaito", "Len", "Maika", and "Meiko". This video can help discern which is which. In Japanese we have "鏡音リン・レン", which are Kagamine Rin/Len, voiced by Vocaloid 2, and apparently they have Anime characters.
  Oh, and I found a Polish word — Ludzkość, which means "human race" or "mankind". That's interesting :)


I have been found out! I technically use Piapro Studio most of the time, but meh. Was planning to reveal the program with the song that introduces Rosetta. And yes, I play KSP!
The voices and hints:
Narrator: Megurine Luka
Megan and Cueball: Meiko and Kaito
Rosetta: Maika. The logo of the company that made Maika has two triangles and one rectangle.
Assorted Beanies: Kagamine Len (not hinted yet)
Lapetite: Kagamine Rin or Megurine Luka with low gender factor (to sound more childish).
Also, the ludzkość is related to a separate song series about the fall of humanity.

Oh look I'm pope. My decree is to avoid facebugs!

mrob27, I'm sorry for your bot, and I really like xeir poems, but I'm already happily married. ;)

I think you're safe on that last one. The OTTronic Bard is too busy writing poetry to dabble in such worldly things as dating or relationships. Its poems are hard to understand because it likes m*stard (ninja'd by @balthasar_s). Reading the OTT through a Markov chain randomiser really does make it a little madder than it already is to start with :P

svenman wrote:Really cool. Was the sonnet that you posted in last page's goat post a creation of your poetry-writing bot too?

Yep… but I hand-pick stanzas; I probably looked through 100 stanzas of output, some with a filter, before using the 31/2 that are in that sonnet. For example, I needed one mentioning OTTscars and @yappobiscuits, so I ran it for a while with an explicit waterottermolpy filter.
  Here, for masochists, is an example of what I actually look at; I'll just run it and copy the first 27 stanzas, unedited:

Code: Select all

 $ ./mrorls-ottronic-bard -h

NAME

  mrorls-ottronic-bard -- Generate random OTT "poetry"

DESCRIPTION

This script tries to generate random stanzas of "poetry" using the
#travesty# and #pmgrep# tools.

OPTIONS

  -m 100x3      Give a metrical scheme for each line (in this example,
                triple-dactyl)
  -rs ABAB      Give a rhyme scheme (currently only letters A and B may
                be used)
  -s foo.*bar   Search for stanzas that match a pattern

 $ ./mrorls-ottronic-bard -n 27
travesty: scanning, 92000 lines 141825 words so far...

Over the past yip and a half I have added a lot of syllabifications manually, for example I had to specify that namewrd is stressed /'nāmˌwərd/. In this sample we see that continueth and looooonnnnnnnnggggggg both have three syllables, perhaps I might fix those by adding them to the manually-created list. We also see that jazzercise is 4 syllables: /j'az·ərˌsīz/. The 'j' alone is being counted as a syllable, a systematic error that I will need to fix.
  Note the "92000 lines", which is the number of posts in the OTT rounded down, and "141825 words", which is the size of the dictionary (number of distinct words with a few restrictions, e.g. not starting with a digit). The first stage in the bot's pipeline is reading its input from a stripped OTT that looks like this:

Code: Select all

 OTT:1:0  1190 time title text wait for it. i have no patience for entropy. the eternal journey continues even after the end of time since it seems like the essential idea of this epic comic of comics is that while time might appear to be a strictly linear phenomenon its manifestation as life is actually a profoundly open richly holistic poly temporal inter creative experience with as many entry points narratives and interpretations as there are participants in it. the ever flowing moment of the present is in fact a portal to all times a mysterious window which invites us to simultaneously invent the world as we explore it. while we personally might have different beginnings adventures and inevitable endings together our searching individual journeys map the living landscape of our boundless humanity and reality. also castle silhouettes look crazy cool. and i wonder what thermodynamics says about time having a sequel. . . . link to the wonderfulous wiki for the one true thread.
 OTT:1:1  i can't tell if randall is trying to be deep or just trying to take a day off work. edit having now seen the whole thing i think it's safe to say that taking a day off work was not his intention. wow.
 OTT:1:2  i feel like something will happen at sunrise.
 OTT:1:3  eaglef2 i feel like something will happen at sunrise. true. my first thought was to drag it around like 1110 but no go. that would be a worthy alternative though. though if it was going to base off day night cycles shouldn't it be night right now.
 OTT:1:4  eaglef2 i feel like something will happen at sunrise. i thought i saw the sun quickly come up and go down again but can't duplicate it and now my eyes are seeing all sorts of oddities from staring at the black and white too long.
 OTT:1:5  i don't really get it. nothing is happening. yet i am sitting here staring at it. thinking about what those two might be thinking about. maybe they just talked about something something important perhaps. maybe they're content just to sit there together in silence. watching time happen. somehow i feel that this is the strongest xkcd yet. it's in my head.
 OTT:1:6  i just hope his wife is okay. something in my gut is telling me there's either good news or bad news in that area and i hope it's good news.
 ...
 (92228 lines omitted)
 ...
 OTT:2306:35  sustainabilizer but i don't understand it maybe that's because it's autogenerated. and now i'm thorouthly following bftf paying attentiong to every detail there is less details to pay attention to 843 . the camera view went down and up again. the le on that wagon is probably leml camera up more place for text and less detailed drawing of characters. because the drawing of frames on the tree in the where do the ongs come from. was not very visible the a5 paper taking too little space of the videoframe also the camera quality. i recorded drawing the current background and the three first frames on it . but this time it's just 15 minutes of drawing nothing more.
 OTT:2306:36  zoomansp treeish otthercomic svenman. good luck with finding a new ffs and with fighting the micromolps. thanks. the micromolpies are slowly getting under control. . . mrob27 it's time for mrob27's 700 th post ottronic botpoetry slam. lately i've been building bots well actually i've been doing it mip in and mip out for well over 400 mips now. but this last mip has been fun because i've assembled a few existing bots and pieces of bots and other little bits of computery stuff i had lying around and created something that is either completely safety hatted cueishly insane or pretty molpishly treeish. the first part of the construction is an old standby for creating seaish amounts of epsionishly hilarious 'literary' nonsense an n th order markov chain text generator also called dissociated press or a travesty generator . mine is second order and word based by default meaning that it picks each new word based on the previous two with the result that in the output any three consecutive words appear in the same order somewhere in the source text. . . . most recently i made a rhyming dictionary. . . . this was originally to support normal manual poetry writing such as the work i did for mrorl's ottronic bard. but once i have a rhyming dictionary and a metrical scanner and a travesty generator and a bunch of other bits of computery stuff just lying around and yearning to tickle the muse why not put them all together to make a poetry writing bot. and that my dear fellow otters is what i have done. mrorls ottronic bard creates stanzas of any desired meter and rhyme scheme and optionally containing text matching a regular expression . . . really cool. was the sonnet that you posted in last page's goat post a creation of your poetry writing bot too. and yay for aluisio's former prof.
 OTT:2306:37  more caprice related hints. balthasar s wrote the previous songs were uploaded by project time . this one is by capricious studios official page. oh treeish. that confirms my vocaloid theory . we also now know that caprice plays kerbal space program if that's a hint blitzrockets are molpier when they're leml. some other names of synthetic voices apart from vocaloid4 are kaito len maika and meiko . this video can help discern which is which. in japanese we have which are kagamine rin len voiced by vocaloid 2 and apparently they have anime characters . oh and i found a polish word ludzko which means human race or mankind . that's interesting also i wonder what the thing in your pre madness avatar is. i remember that after i saw some of your early posts and tried to find out who you are i found a video yours. of moving through a world made of cubes. is it from there. i never explained that did i. i changed my avatar to that avatar in anticipation that as a ff00bf bff my avatar might get changed anyway. it is from eden world builder which is a minecraft like game for apple mobile devices like ipad. here are some recent photos of my world in eden. it is a 3d world made of cubes as you say but also wedge shaped half cubes which is one of the nice things that make eden better than minecraft. the building featured in the avatar is one of my creations in a world that was largely created by other people before me i believe i am the 4 th major builder of this world. i call it the cuboctahedron building . my world was pretty enough that the game's programmer chose it for use as one of the sample screen shots for eden in the itunes app store. notably i also figured out the game's file format . the video you saw might have been this it's the only eden video i've made. mrob27

I also manually restore punctuation. I use this plain text OTT for other purposes; if I really wanted my poetrybots to preserve punctuation I could, and some of them do; but it's easy enough to add it back in myself.

Yet in a molpier and/or wingghishier sense, this was one of the farthest Journeys ever attempted by the fabled bOTTifactor, for it very nearly took him beyond the limits of artistic imagination.

Re: 1190: "Time" - not all molpies are molpish

Postby ucim » Sun May 10, 2015 9:21 pm UTC

The ones that live inside your house uninvited, without paying rent, and think "insulation" is OTTish for "bedding", are not molpish! However, our basement will soon be less inviting. In the meantime, I'm practicing domestic archaeology. :/

OTTscars? Sure, I'll take a stab at it. Of course, since the ceremony has already taken place, it might not be in the form of a live rendition. :) Are the winners and prizes and all all set up already? Maybe we should pass it around, and have other interested parties all take a section.

Molpish idea. I think I'll give it a bit more Time to allow anyone who wants a go to apply, then I'll split up the remaining awards into sections to give to each writer. :)

Also because your subject line reminded me of recent happenings in Orphan Black...

splitting it sounds like a nice solution. I can certainly manage at least a piece of the writing.

ucim wrote: Of course, since the ceremony has already taken place, it might not be in the form of a live rendition. :)

having them be delivered to the residencies of the various characters might be a good way to maintain continuity across multiple writers, as much as I loved the ceremony setting.

yappobiscuits wrote:All raptorcats are molpies. No raptorcat is molpish. Conclusion: Not all molpies are molpish. True or false?

It would be true if and only if the set of raptorcats were null, as I see it:
Definitions:
  d1: R is the set of raptorcats
  d2: M is the set of molpies
  d3: S is the set of molpish things
Assumptions/axioms:
  a1: There are no sets that contain sets as elements
Premises:
  p1: R is a subset of M
   "All raptorcats are molpies"
  p2: (R intersect S) is null
   "No raptorcat is molpish"
Conclusion:
  C: (M intersect (complement S)) is not null
   "There is a molpy that is not molpish."
I'm not sure is we need assumption a1 but it's the kind of thing that tripped up Cantor (see Russell's paradox).
  To make the question answerable, I need to add another premise, which could be either p3 "There are no raptorcats" or p4 "There exists at least one raptorcat". Frame 2228 suggests p4 so I suppose the answer @yappobiscuits is looking for is "true".

I think the idea of splitting the OTTscars into sections to be written by different writers is great, because each section would then have its own distinct style. Perhaps 4 sections with (approximately) 12 awards each, because there were 12 awards in the existing first section, and 48 is about how many categories there were in total. I love to write, but I shouldn't be involved unless it's a long time from now, because 1) I have my current writing project bOTTeriada, and want to give that my best and 2) I kind of got impatient for a while and mentioned the OTTscars too much, thus going against the spirit of the First Commandment :?

Hello!

I made my haiku detector find haiku made up of multiple sentences a while ago, but it still had a bit of non-true-threading mustard, which I finally had Time to look into last nip. So now I've released the new version, and run that old text file of the thread through it to find additional haiku. Thanks to the seaishness of the OTT, I found a couple of other edge cases and made sure it handled them properly.

I think the list of all 802 haiku (350 more than before) is too seaish to paste into a post as I did last Time, so I put it elsewhere instead.

Well, maybe I'll probe the post length limit again and see if I can paste them here too. Be warned; there are bad words in the fourth haiku.

Spoiler:
I guess we'll see in
the morning. ...Unless it's a
multi-part comic.

I kinda hope it's
as simplistic as it seems,
but it may not be.

Ok, well they are
now definitely moving
of their own accord.

What's going on? Oh
god, the suspense! Will it be
worth it in the end?

Please don't be sad or
scary...please please please don't bite
his leg off. xD

I've seen mention of
the BTC string, but not
what is below it.

So I just haven't
scrolled down the main page in a
really long time. Thanks.

You know, this kind of
reminds me of the paintings
in Harry Potter.

Does anyone have
the URL/a Mirror
for the first photo?

I looked in the source
code and was able to find
a javascript file.

It's 2:01 EST,
and I'm not seeing a new
frame.goddammit.

They'll spend a lifetime
building a world from scratch and
grow old together.

Unless the Gif is
being adjusted in some
non-obvious way.

Now I don't have to
be afraid to leave work in
case I miss something.

Was unsure about
the gender, and just went for
the most probable.

seens like the castle
wasn't complex enough, so
she's building more stuff

Oh my God, watching
this comic is so thrilling
and... time consuming.

I was interested
to see the progression of
pictures that I missed.

I get it! Randall
is also a fan of Songs
of fire and ice.

Randall is also

that this won't be some thing that

Is the sand getting
more roughed up over time as
he walks over it?

Why would he do that,
particularly in such
a long, drawn out way?

You must be new here...
the suspense is terrible.
i hope it'll last

Can we come back to
the main topic, please? What is
that suppose to mean?

Maybe its over.
Or maybe we just have to
wait some more. Same here.

I was hoping for
something different, like a knight
to go with the rook.

bigger castle! why
am i still online? This is
way too addicting.

Just a side note: Is
this the largest comic thread
this forum has seen?

Philip on page 2
maintains a list, but that is
rather tedious...

It's hex(rot13
(a_secret_string))a really
secret string MWyqayetJqc

I think Randall is
trying to say that they are
having a baby.

Wow. Okay so the
auto updater survived
the night flawlessly.

I hope he gets back
with the sandwiches soon ... she'll
be getting hungry.

He's been 'waiting' for
his free time, we're gonna be
waiting for the end.

Maybe this means it's
more about the construction
than the two of them?

Interesting.Well,
intriguing at least Bits are
falling off again.

Probably posts that
got accepted after more
posts were made.Yup.

I personally
think this really will go on
for months, if not years.

And so castles made
of sand melts into the sea,
eventually...

Maybe another
tower in the center of
the big square section?

If there's a joke I
don't get at the end of this,
I will be LIVID!!

17 minutes
left before we see if she
starts heading that way

If this was Randall's
intention, the man is a
genius in my book....

Didn't see you there!
First post. Nice to meet you all.
Eeek... 10 mins late?

Nah... This is going
SO WELL.I CANT WAIT FOR
MORE!!!but i have to.

I bet she's going
to come back and see he built
something really cool.

Well that looks like the
end of the surge of posts for
the latest image.

I'll see you all and
your updated theories in
20 mins. Argh!

Girl in the lighthouse
59That is all I
am going to say.

You think he's lonely
because of the length of the

He's just waiting for
her to return with the flag
couple of minutes.

Please lets not let it
get as far off topic as
Pickup artist.... Please...

Just to see how nuts
we'll get.Either way, he's
doing a good job.

I know I should rest.
Big day tomorrow. Sigh. Can't
leave the my desk now.

Oh me yarm he moved!
This is awesome! Ok, he's
done crenellating.

The waiting is like
those impossibly long nine
-months! I'm a GENIUS!!!

Even if he can't,
which is nobody's fault, not
even the Romans'.

I can only hope.

The guy was gone for
22 frames. The girl has
only been gone 10.

It explains how we
are imprisoned by the works
we have created.

I haven't been here
in years so I had to get
a password reset.

But I just had to
come back, I've been lurking here
since Monday morning.

More conjecture... What
is going to be left in
place once this is done?

Not sure what this can
tell us, but I wanted to
add it to the mix.

I think I was at
work for a while, but I can't
really remember.

EDIT: Or just wait
until the next interesting
comic rolls around...

I personally
think that this MMONS is going
to go on for years.

and its all because
of everyone else out there
watching and waiting.

Who would he have been
hiding from if not us? good
morning from Europe.

Huh. Some say that he
did it, but to me it seems
like some one (Black Hat?)

Or there's always the
feathered velciraptors, waves,
lions or hat guy.

Now, will he rebuild,
or will he call it a day
and leave? Time... will tell.

And slept at some point?
But besides that... WHY IS THIS
SO TIME-CONSUMING.

I've just got to work
and am ready for a day
of hardcore waiting.

Its great to see what
people will do just to keep
up to date with this.

And that seems to be
the precise formula to
keep us addicted.

Pterodactyls? What
should we expect there...? Share the
shared experience!

Was nice checking the
picks every half hour but
alas I need sleep.

This comic may not
turn out to be something you
can really wait through.

I made a forum
account just to post that there
was a new picture.

It's fascinating
to see how engrossed people
are. Touching somehow.

How was it 30
minutes out? I thought timezones
were spaced hourly.

Your suggestions would
have ruined the mystery
in the beginning.

Clearly this means that
Randall has been diagnosed
with psoriasis.

I almost don't want
to sleep tonight because of
this darned comic!! Gosh.

EDIT: How sexist,
assuming 'he', sorry if
you're female, Aubron!

They must be on some
kind of lake. Aubron Wood is
male. How to find out?

I predict that they
will jump the shark ten frames from
now. Literally.

a real sandcastle.

to go: place your bets.

I took it to be
he was doing more detailed
work on the castle.

I totally looked
up to see if 6 Flags owned
SandCastle today.

What a convenient

Like sandcastles. And
time. And... stuff....yeeeeah, Imma
go cook some french toast.

We must go deeper.
(sorry) This is much bigger
than all of us now...

I find it hard to
believe that he'd expect us
to go so crazy.

Surely this is the
most important of all the
frames, it sets the scene!

I'm glad it didn't
end there. Augh! No! He's gone! Why
did he leave?!?! Mr.

Maybe that's part of
the hidden dialogue of
these two characters.

It's the perfect time
to leave. It should help me to
stop going crazy.

He started to, but
that one little piece is still
not quite wide enough.

It looks the exact
same to me, then again, my
eyesight is horrid.

One on the inside
of the gate, one on the third
turret from the left.

I know I said I
was leaving but that turned out
to be premature.

Calm before the storm.
Something catastrophic is
about to happen.

In the new one, the
entire castle shifted
a bit to the right.

lol There's a new flat
area of sand just to
the right of the bridge.

OK. I saw the

changed. I'm so relieved.

A flag? Nah, it would

But I guess, within

It visibly moved!

it has come to this.

I wonder how much
money is being lost per

It's a shame that the
wrong image slipped thru to spoil
the upcoming frames.

Why would you usedays
?I think days have something to

At least we still have
our sandcastle.I don't
know. Nobody does.

From the stories, I
expected the Outside to
be sad. And it was.

Do these 'Days' from the
'Outside' correspond with these
cycles of newpix?

On that note, I think
we may be just a bit off
topic at this point.

Is that like Outside?
(I am hesitant about
starting this again.)

I searched for a while
but after 20 minutes
I could not find it.

Over 300
people with way too many
newpix on their hands.

It is time not to
fight, but to live.I think
we need a motto.

I vote in favor
of Newpic for singular,
Newpix for plural.

I think I believe
in a religion for the
first time in my life.

There is no 'Outside'.
These 'natural instincts' are
nothing of the sort.

And bombard the two
sandcastles with whatever
a trebuchet hurls.

In the beginning
the Creator Randall brought
forth and gave us Time.

All that was left of
Time was the Sandcastle for
us to gaze upon.

Maybe if they had
organized themselves Jesus
could still be alive.

Not sure how you can
figure when it is suppose
to finish panning.

IIRC the panning
rate changed while the person was
calculating it.

Sad to see that the
article failed very soon
after it started.

She (and Cueball?) is
(are?) dead and is (are?) trying
to come back. To here.

SHE'S BACK!!! Phew that's a
relief to atleastsome
of the worse outcomes...

All the area
within the towers in the
old castle is flat!

Eventually
I may want to go back and
review those pages.

maybe this one will
explain what the hell that thing
is on the left. YAY!

Cueball continued
developing on Earth, then
left to join Megan.

Ah, yes. On a par
with 21 as far as
setting the scene goes.

We found that he joined
her and they built up their world
together again.

Also, Oh me yarm,
did I just coin a name for
a new religion?

Riversong is a

Then why did Cueball

I don't know. I do
hope this castle keeps building
until Monday, now.

I could be as long
as 48newpix. Which
is a scary thought!

You know, I think it's
just Randall being Randall.
There's no deep story.

Well... yes. Call me old

Perhaps it would be

I personally

worried about her.

Large, central tower?
Taj Mahal in the middle,
or something like that?

Converted to post
-zoom pixels, that's about 9.
Currently, it's 5.

She's going back for
another taste. She has a
scientific mind.

Pretty sure it means
productivity will be
down again today.

She's asking because
she can't see over the big
block of sand she built.

All it has done is
add on more to our knowledge

Shouldn't that be 'Its

That's okay - they're not

No, wait... That doesent
