Hmm, looks like the botcastle leapt into the future for a quick lookaround (presumably to see if any plans are being made for the Gibraltar Dam), did a quick stealthy ong while there (which set the next ong time to also be in 2025), then leapt back again. It would have onged again in another 8 years!

At any rate that ONG can be seen in the present. Probably due to some timey-wimey stuff.

Do this. Go through the gate!

Today felt like The First Day of Fall.

When the Sun went down, it got cold.
The Box was colder inside than out.

I am warm and cozy in my nest up off the ground.

Still warmish out here. We missed the worst of the heat in California (where we totally didn't engage in any secret liaisons with shaving implements!) but when we returned, found that Fall had been postponed. It is peeking around the corner though. Glad you found a good doctor! Did he come in a timey wimey phone booth?

Love the THwapstick ZoomanSP! And the ᘇcˀᴐ sign, Baltimore!

It does seem they are going through the gate the hard way.

I wonder... if one is sorry for everything, are they also sorry that they are sorry for everything, and then sorry for that? Are they sorry for sunny days, salsaM and ice cream? (Ok, if they are sorry for disco, that's fine, but there's plenty of blame to go around for that!) Remember that even Lucky's attack was... well... lucky! (We even have a month of remembrance for this.) So hold your bias high and don't ground the inputs! ((()))

I think it got some help. I imagine the conversation went something like this: "[…] let's go through the gate. / What, with the botcastle? / Yes. / But why?"

Recently everyone at my university got an email encouraging us to, among other things, "Use antimalware software". I briefly read it as if the t were missing from "antimalware". Although that would be great, I guess, I'd really prefer molpyware. But not molpywear, because furder.

It was impossible!
I am not the only one.

So; Jackie drove me through the canyon and over the mountain to gamble on another office.

I love my little nest.

It is light and bright during the day.
It is cozy and warm at night.

Thank you, Time Thread.
You made all the difference.
Spoiler:
I wonder: Why? Oh, Why?
Why was The Box so cold?

It was like living in a greenhouse, in the shade.
It was a beautiful forest park like location.

Three of the four walls were uninsulated glass.
That glass seemed to wick the heat out of The Box.

It was often colder inside than it was outside.
I am still near trees.

Someone even pulled off a proof of concept if I remember correctly, that showed it could be done.

Oh yeah, I remember that. A sandcastle-generator. (If we had a forum search I would try and find it in the OTT.)

It was @Kieryn, OTT:48:11, though the actual implementation was by "Mr Snidesmin". It looked like this:

The webpage was here but like all of @Kieryn's stuff, no longer works. However, you can see part of it on Wayback machine and the source code is still here.
  In case you're interested, I didn't use search either. I looked in my detailed travelogue (blitz) notes because I knew I had probably made a note of it. My note says "Demo of automatically-generated frames of a stick-figure building a sandcastle, at kieryn.com/xkcd-time/" It was my first mention of @Kieryn.

I realize this reply is over a year overdue. It's been a wild and bizzare year.

"Mr Snidesmin" is in fact my alter ego from long ago, so yeah, I did write that code. The blitzbasic site is now gone actually, but someone has archived it here: http://wasted.nz/codearcs.php?code=3046

After watching the frames from the first day or two it was this conspiracy theory (which obviously turned out to be wrong) and brief obsession of mine that got me all excited and ultimately catapulted me into this community. After posting it, I lurked for a few days reading the craziness of the religious wars that were underway and realized the talk about the comic as it was happening was actually far more exciting than just the comic. Once the norms became more established, and the one true religion emerged, I started joining in more frequently.

It's Kieryn! In the flesh! (so to speak :) ) Calooh! Callay! And yappo too! My life just got a good deal happier! [insert image of Snoopy doing the happy dance.] Sorry to hear about your lifemustard yappo, but remember what the mip of Tribulation is all about. Even a keyboard attack turned out for the good. And who knows, maybe there will be a Metal Opera in the offing as a result.

Kieryn, I have been following the First and Greatest Commandment, but I am overjoyed to have an actual Visitation from one of the Other Related Authors!

I wonder what the story of Mr Snidesmin is. Everyone has a story, and I'm sure this one is RELATED!

On this end of things, I found my beanie! I live where it sometimes gets cold, and I need a beanie. But we sometimes go to the warm place when that happens. So I wear my beanie to the place where I ride the Mighty Engine, and then stuff it in my bag. It's a good bag, with lots of compartments, and when I return to the cold place, my beanie is still there. But I don't need it, because I'm still warm from the warm place.

So, last time this happened it never got unpacked. The next time it got cold, I was beanieless, which is probably why I didn't dam the Straits of Gibraltar that yip. Well, recently we went to another warm place using the same bag, and I found my beanie! (Either that or a zombie infiltrated my hotel while I was having a wowterful time with a RAZOR agent and stuffed a brain slug safety hat in there, but it didn't look like a brain slug safety hat, and I never met anybody from RAZOR on my trip, which never happened, so it must be my beanie!) Just in time, because rumor has it this place is about to get cold again and I'm going to need it.

Beanies aren't green, are they?

It's a ghost horse grazing in front of a square UFO. Since the horse is imaginary, the picture is complex. The question is, does the tree next to the spaceship (or secret moonbase) have square roots?

And welcome back DrSamCarter! Great to see the basement leaking out!

Thanks! Image

I love how the BSTA frames use the axonometric projection, even for a scene like two people riding bikes on a dirt road amongst grass, brush and trees.

Best wishes, @yappobiscuits. I'm still interested in helping with the OTTscars results Pt. 2.

Thanks for checking in @Kieryn! Your website inspired me to make an OTT index and I had to announce it, which was my reason to delurk.

It is, indeed, the season of green safety hats.

Yesterdip I was in a moving carstle which passed many rows of growing fruit clusters. As is appropriate in such occasions, I sung a song containing the words molpy, molpy, molpy, molpy, molpy, molpy, molpy, molpy, molpy, molpy, molpy, molpy, grapevineM and grapevine.

Are green beans purple?

Postby Eternal Density » Wed Oct 11, 2017 8:37 am UTC

Forgot to say, hi to all shadow-poppers and spotlight-dancers!
Also I rather like the beanish-stop-sign-ottification.
And my Outside started Daylight Savings Time the wip**d before last, which is RELATED even though it's not molpish to have to wake up early. I think I'm finally adjusted though, since I woke up before my alarm this mornip after setting it earlier than usual in order to attend a 7am breakfast event.

Are these echoes of the Mopy Mome? Where's she been lately?

June Bug?
oh...She is very busy OutSide.

One of these days, she will come back.
Then, all will be well with the Thread.
