Full list: http://kieryn.com/xkcd-time/data/top5000timeNouns.txt

I got this list by filtering on nouns that are not in this top list of common words ftp://ftp.itri.bton.ac.uk/bnc/lemma.num and not in the top 5000 result of the same process done on the General>INTRO THREAD THE THIRD thread. This removed any common xkcd forums words and so really distilled it to the Time words. If anyone's interested the General forum word list is here: http://kieryn.com/xkcd-time/data/genCommonNouns.txt

The raw data from this parsing is available for anyone to use here: http://kieryn.com/xkcd-time/data/forumData.zip.

This zip is a single file in JSON format that was serialized using a C# DataContractJsonSerializer -- so sorry if there are crappy characters in there.
For anyone that uses C#, then the data should deserialize perfectly into the following classes:

Code: Select all

public class ForumData
    {
        public List<Post> Posts { get; set; }
        public List<TaggedToken> TaggedTokens { get; set; }
    }
    public class Post
    {
        public int PostId { get; set; }
        public string User { get; set; }
        public DateTime PostDate { get; set; }
        public string ContentText { get; set; }
    }

    //Represents individual words
    public class TaggedToken
    {
        public int PostId { get; set; }  //Original post
        public string Token { get; set; }  //Word or symbol
        public string Tag { get; set; }  //Part of speech as identified by OpenNLP parsing
        public string TagDescription { get; set; }
    }

To deserialize:

Code: Select all

            var ser = new DataContractJsonSerializer(typeof(ForumData));
            using (var file = File.OpenRead(@"C:\forumData.json"))
            {
                var dataContext = ser.ReadObject(file) as ForumData;
                //do stuff...
            }

I'm surprised buffygirl beat Blitzgirl.


Yeah, you are right. Apparently I only got 6 instances where she was tagged as a noun. The NLP must not be that great. I need to recheck this -- thanks for pointing it out. Back later :-)


Aha. Bug in my code meant I was only looking at lower case instances of nouns. No mixed case. I will recalculate and report shortly.

Does it treat proper nouns differently? If so, it probably assumes BlitzGirl is a proper noun since it begins with a capital letter. That would also explain the lack of Megan and Cueball in both lists.

I agree, Very suspicious. Perhaps cmyk should be advanced as the new Pope Permanent Past Prior Present Punctual for Perpetuity (until Blitzgirl reaches the end/present/future(?) of time of course) and see if he goes MIA as well. :twisted:

According to that graph, cmyk never comas. :shock: cmyk is the robot that Helper's consciousness was transferred into.


Of course, Helper isn't as nearly as handsome as me, either.

Pope of Perpetuity sounds about right, as I was on a work bender for the last couple weeks*, pulling 24 to 36 hrs between (painfully short) comas. Of course this thread helped with productivity.

Right. It's been replaced. I had feared it might be too detailed. I wanted to use it cuz it sorta looked like a fancy sandcastle.

(holla!)

Actually, at the moment, I couldn't find an easy way to download all the frames from any particular source and import it into After Effects as an image sequence. The one source I did find, the file names were all semi-hash tags, and the dates were all the same, so there was no way to easily sort them (that I could see) as an ordered sequence of frames. So, I took the lazy route and screen recorded the sequence from one of the scripted player websites.

After I captured that, I had to mess with the fps/playback rates a bit, then just applied motion blur using a post-process plugin called Reel Smart Motion Blur. Handy tool for faking such an effect.

Here's the way I get the frames:
1) Using chrome, go to http://geekwagon.net/projects/xkcd1190/.
2) In the JS console type:

Code: Select all

$(images).each(function(){console.log(this.toString());});

This outputs all the URLs to the console
3) Copy and paste/save the URLs then I wrote a program that loops through them and saves each image numbered 1..n

If you use C# the code is as simple as:

Code: Select all

           
            var client = new System.Net.WebClient();
            var i = 0;
            foreach (var url in File.ReadAllLines(@"C:\imgUrls.txt")) {
                client.DownloadFile(url, @"C:\frames\" + i + ".png");
                i++;
            }

Yep, it's a great tool. The default setting works pretty great 90% of the time (though for post-MB in CG, it can use motion vector data from your scene, which helps it determine proper vectors for the blurring). I just doubled the the strength for this, and turned it off or down on the dialog(ue) frames. Easy peasy.

This is really starting to look like the castle from Disney logo. The bridge is even at the right position. I know, it's not perfect. But it's the closest one so far.


Yeah, or maybe Neuschwanstein? Or Hogwarts?


I dunno... sorta looking like Megatron.

Which Megatron? There's actually been rather a few iterations, all of them rather different.
This is what the original Megatron toy transformed into:

Today, on the outside I tamed the savage beasts1, beat back the encroaching jungle2, did battle with a powerful foe3, and went on a mighty quest4. Then I hurried back to wait for it.

1 Took my Newfoundlands to obedience class.
2 Mowed the lawn.
3 Called my satellite provider to get a new receiver, to replace the one that has failed.
4 Took a nice walk around the park.

The only Megatron is the original Megatron that somehow defied known material physics and transformed into a gun a fraction of his Decepticon-mode size and mass.

Maybe he was made out of some kind of foam that compressed? A foam that looked and behaved almost exactly like metal... I'll just call it astro-foam and be done with it.
