Nice graph!

And yet it is concerning that she is appears to asymptotically approach the "Now" -- perhaps, like Zeno, she will never intersect with us in the present, but shall only reach an approximation of "now" that is outside our own universe?

Yes that is a bit concerning. Also you may note the ever increasing regularity of her posts. If this trend continues, which I'm sure it will, then eventually she will reach hard limit of 40 posts per page. From that point on there will be nothing but BlitzGirl! If this is good or bad may be decided by future historians.

Who are Alice and Bob, and why are they shooting each other?

When did we get an Eastern Paradox Church? As Transcendental Imaginator or the Western Paradox Church I am concerned about this development, mainly because it makes it SO hard to keep track...

And a larger question, something I've been pondering for a while now: When Lord Randall started the OTC, did he have this story all worked out? Or is it evolving and developing as Time progressing? Not that I want to start a creationism vs evolution discussion. Or do I?

I return now to the pit to labor further, but hope to return and perhaps join you all in the future present. Or is it the present future?

Does anyone know how I would go about exporting the posting date and time of the messages in this thread. Guess one way would be to write a script to download each page and parse out the date from the first post on each page but doesn't sound like an easy task. Their may be a much easier way on this forum to export post data.

I was going to use that data to map out what forum page each newpix was released. This data would then let me modify the Book of Time templates so that each page/newpix references back to the forum page it was discussed with a number and a link. This would help with deciding what to put in the Book of Time easier but would also be a great way to allow people to jump back into the point they are looking for in the Forum without doing lots of searching.

Any help or ideas would be appreciated.

Edit: I do remember someone must have already exported this data once a hundred pages ago when they did a graph of post history over time but I'm not sure who it was and when they posted it.

Edit2: ok found Kieryn posted the graphs before. I may try PM'ing them in the hope of learning some of his masterly ways.

Only having one folder is not normal!

Well, I think I can redeem myself by disclosing that the attached image (I forget the original poster, but thank you, whoever you are) is my Facebook cover photo.

Well, if we're disclosing/confessing . . . I used the Time Catapult illustration for mine, slightly twerked & edited for optimal fit. And my former avatar here, the "I like my hat" from Journal 3, is still my avatar there. Heck, might as well link: https://www.facebook.com/jrandyowens

I'm from Les Paul's hometown originally, so I appreciate that one too, in my own way.
