Oh great, now I'm trying to figure out how one could have a sexually-charged exchange via newpix.

What have you done to me, Time?

I'm not sure what you were getting at, but here are sexual things for some of those words (mildly (N)SFW):
Spoiler:
CUEBALL: When you take a white substance (newpixels) and gather them into a functioning ball.
LONGPIX: When the np that is tattooed on your stick gets a chance to extend its appreciation.
BLUENHANCE: When your stick tattoo gets a color enhancement via oxygenization.
BLINDPOST: When you are blindfolded and have to seek out a vertical post for enjoyment of "posting".
KETCHUP: [I'm not sure I should tell y'all what I was thinking....curious people could ask or PM?]

If the conference is open to US Americans and if any US Americans are going to Europe for the First Time.
Then I have something to say to those people.

Spoiler:
In the Late Spring and Summer, The US Americans have the Psychological Advantage.
If you are prepared for a 10 Mile Hike and you arrive in 5.5 miles or so;
It feels Great! Yey!! You Did It! and (in my experience) You might feel pretty good about it, too.

In the Winter, all the advantages go to the Europeans.
Every kilometer feels like a mile.
Your clothes are a necessary burden.
The snow clings; Making your shoes heavy and wet.

Even a map can't help you, if it's not of the correct city.
Or; If you are in a Park. City Maps don't have Park Trails.

And! Pay Close Attention to Labeling!
That little C and the little F change the meaning of a number in some of the same ways a + or - sign does.

Labeling Is Important!
Pay attention to That one!

If your machine tells you it it 10 degrees out there.
Don't ask a European how to dress for a 10 degree day.
You'll Freeze!
The sum total of everything I know about going to Europe.
Miles are longer than Kilometers.

Watch those Celsius they're weird.
...Go! Have Fun!
Life is, just, an exchange of electrons; It is up to us to give it meaning.

We are all in The Gutter.
Some of us see The Gutter.
Some of us see The Stars.
by mr. Oscar Wilde.

Those that want to Know; Know.
Those that do not Know; Don't tell them.
They do terrible things to people that Tell Them.

Ahh. A quiet new year's eve alone at home doing <computery stuff>. Just how I like it

Shame the neighbors insist on setting off explosive newpix4 all around. Feels like I'm in a war zone.

4Was typing absentmindedly^7 but thought it was funny and left it5
5I wonder what would happen if you devised a system for mapping footnote text to numbers8
^7That's odd, a carat snuck in. This is a seven-carat footnote..
8Then I suppose you could write a footnote that asserts its own unproveabilityö
. Period? That's not even a valid number..

Something happened and the botcastle stopped updating its IP. I have a botcastleselftestanddemustardbot that detects situations like this and resets ddclient (or the whole botcaslte if needed). For some reason the bot failed too. I'm unable to determine the its IP. There is nobody there. Everyone went to celebrate the new year and nobody can help me. I see that at the time when mrob27 made his last post it was already inaccessible. I didn't notice it because I was in the same local network. Yesterday, when I was going here, to celebrate the new year with my family I forgot to check if everything works correctly because of something else. Now I have to wait a few more hours before I can do anything with it. The IP is temporarily set to 0 so that you don't connect to random people's organized sands. Wait for it.

No ,my film is not a sexually-charged exchange via newpix.

The Time has come that I return to the OTT once more. It was inevitable.

A very treeish New Yip everymolpy! :D


I don't believe AT-counting and celebrating the Outside New Yip are mutually exclusive. Heck, there's a Chinese New Yip February 19th and an Islamic New Yip on October 14th and many more to celebrate. Take the day off, acquire cake and review how great it is to live in a multibeanish world.

How are the hoverboards and holographic displays?

Oh, and is everyone wearing cool future clothes?

Hey, give me a break, it's been a while since I've been to 2015

Oh boy, I didn't know BTTFII was set in 2015. Luckily, we have some prototype hoverboards already.

The botcastle should be up now.

It was the 2018 mustard again.

my changes to ddclient were undone. How?

NTP doesn't help?

Or maybe it's related to your experiments with the chronotransponder?

Maybe some auto-updating mechanism? :?
In any case your changes to ddclient improve it.
They should be included in its main distribution line.

yes.

The botcastle doesn't have a battery-backed-up RTC. after restart it's 2010. It uses ntp to set the correct time. Sometimes it sets the offset twice and that's why it ends up in 2018 (or 2020 now). If ddclient runs before this is corrected (very soon) mustard happens. My modification of ddclient makes it work even if time flows in whatever direction it wants.

Happy Heretical New Year! to all OTTers and Timewaiters.

Glad to see everymolpy's doing well. (Just did a three page micro-blitz to see if I can ketchup.)

I have tearfully laid to rest the notion of being able to be at the get-together in person, but I'm thinking of taking Feb 13 off anyway so I can join in via web-access. This way I can be here/there in real time. [ETA: and now looking harder, I see I might have to take two dips off]

I haven't yet dealt with the crypto-lock virus that's in my external hard-drive. I know it's taken over one of the three major folders on it (with the one not affected [yet] being the one I want to save). I've been told all I need to do is delete the infected folder, but I've seen these type of things re-write themselves before being deleted. And the folder that's not infected? It's the accumulation of all of my years of having a computer. Most especially it has all of "Time" (every frame as I collected when it came out), all of my manips of the OTC (including intermediate steps), my two Time notepads with the various meanderings that are or became posts, all of the various pics I found to post here, and certain pics and other stuff I saved from here. And then there's the other stuff that's been a long time making and/or collecting.
And the stuff I lost on the computer drive? All of yappo and june bug's music I copied, Chronosdragon's ONG-clock gadget, the cookies for Sandcastle and Q04B (I've started playing Q04B again, but Sandcastle... I hadn't been playing it as intensely in the recent while, but I was in the 800's for frame numbers and was making glass bricks and all, but I'm not sure if I have the heart to start it again. My game could be traced back to before it was on chirpingmustard, when ED was still writing the wowderfall thing.)

@balthasar_s: I saw a while back you weren't sure how to register folks from here onto the Mirror. Something about not being able to be sure the person who signed up on the Mirror was the same person as on the fora. (i.e.: the Mirror Blitzgirl is the fora's Blitzgirl.) Have you figured that out yet?
(I've been wondering if maybe some kind of a link here [or PM'ed to the OTTer] could bring the fora's ID to the Mirror registration page? After following the link, the Mirror sign-up page would say "Welcome Blitzgirl. Please enter a password for the Mirror Site" Or whatever. I know, you've probably already figured this out, so please accept this as some random musings.)

Well back to lurking and basementing. Enough of my bummer thoughts.

I really do hope all of you are in good cheer.

Keep Waiting.
The count-down to the meat-up is ticking away.

HOW FAST CAN A WOTTERMOLPY BLITZNAP SOMETHING?

Postby mrob27 » Thu Jan 01, 2015 7:23 pm UTC

A few more replies...

Thanks @Sustainabilizer for the answers, though I still need a lot more details about how I might be able to connect to the conference remotely.

Please.
Answer my chirping PMs.


Software takes a while to install. I have no idea how hard it will be to set up a Toshiba notebook to dual-boot Win8 and Linux, much less figuring out which distro will work with whatever mystery software you intend me to use. If you don't spend a mere centinewpix to tell me what software you want me to use, I won't be able to participate.

also, Q04B

I think sometime between the Present and the year 13291, civilization within the OTC returns to the point of ancient Greeks trying to prove that √2 is rational, and 553/395 is proposed as a solution.

Perhaps we could set up a MOONMATRIX (Multiplicity Of Otterbots Noticing Mustardisms And Treeishly Restoring Interconnective eXcellence). Can the 2018/2019 Mustard be detected by another bot out on the intertubes? And if my bot detects it, can it notify you somehow (perhaps by fetching a URL that triggers a PHP script that sends a private email)?

ETA: @pelrigg, if you tell me your approximate Q04B score and what strategy you were playing by (build towards the bottom?) I can give you a save/restore string that will get you back to that score. You can re-earn most of the boosts fairly easily.

More ETA: If you can boot from a CD-ROM or a bootable USB (created on another computer, see http://www.pcworld.com/article/2084002/ ... mware.html ) then you can backup your files by burning them onto a CD-R or DVD-R. Optical discs cannot be crypto-locked, so they are a permanent backup (unless it's a CD-RW or DVD-RW, but don't use those, they get bit-rot).
