Oh my Randall, LaPetite is back! I came back after dinner, saw the newpix and my body froze for several seconds fractions of newpix.

Ah! La Petite! As I have been longing for you, and now you're back at the end of time! :D
Soo sad that you will have to fade out as well and I willl no more be able to see you. :cry:

Hello curve-makers out there.
It would be nice (although a bit sad and perhaps terrifying) to see how the rise of the sea (which is big) compares with the fading of the world.
I.e. how high will the sea (which is big) be when the world is all white?

Oh Alusio, how much I wish that would be true. Though I feel in my bones (which are old) that It is approaching, and time is coming to an end...

I think of doing so as a way of experiencing the time that's passed. ... that's past. Both make sense.

Me too, except ..... JUST NOW, when on page 433 !! And it was by mistake!!!! I friggin spoilered myself!

I inadvertently clicked my aubronwood tab and there she was, LaPetite! I froze, and I think my heart stopped for just a moment. But I couldn't skip ahead on the thread! And so I continued reading through the newpages, catching up, seeing the bleak mood worsen, knowing that hope was just around the corner, but unable to provide any hope!

But now we have all found hope -- let me get those hats finished!

Are you using chrome values? Because it is not at 50% yet.


Nuh-uh.

I'm downloading the original png from the hash, opening in Photoshop and making sure not to apply any color management (and its gamma set to 1.0 — linear).

Seems other image editors are opening the png as Index Color (with some default color lookup table), which, despite its 256 swatch values, is a bit less accurate than true 8-bit grayscale, so it rounds the value to the closest swatch.

Then, I sample the brightness level of the sand, using the HSB (Hue, Saturation, Brightness) color model, which gives me a percentage from black to white (0 - 100%) under "B".

With that, I just simply plug that percent into its appropriate frame for the graph data in Numbers, and fit an exponential curve to it.

Either way, the color values sampled are absolute, despite any "corrective" gamma function curves being applied to make it appear darker/lighter.

Long time lurker and follower of the OTC since the beginning... registered and broke my lurking streak purely because I felt it would be wrong given the current events of Time (and the fact a playlist is being put together) for someone not to link to the magnificent song "Time" by Finnish metal legends Wintersun. However as a newbie I can't post links, but I strongly suggest you look it up...

TIME! FADES AWAY!
When time fades away
And I'll never be the same...

Wintersun clearly prophecised the One True Comic...

The .png file encodes a grayscale image, with integer values from 0 to 255 at each pixel. The value of the formerly-black pixels (all of which are identical, except near the edges where antialiasing has been applied) seems to me to be a much better measure of whiteness than converting 1-D intensity values to a 3-D colorspace model and then taking one of the three values. Right now it's 110, or about 43.14%.

It is an Adobe ICC-Profile with a LUT (Look Up Table) for printing. So: No idea what all this means, but I am pretty sure it's not just an ordinary grayscale image.

We know it's fading out and we we have to Wait for it...

But I am sure then it will fade in at the location Megan and Cueball did travel.
And that fade in will be different, no colour changes we can predict.

It will be more like a zoom in.

I'm playing timpani, and I have a lot of tuning changes in the piece. When this happens, I write a note at the top of the page showing which drum is tuned to whcih note, so I can keep track. At rehearsal last night, I realized I miss one, and started writing the pitches at the top of the page--F, A, D and E. Then I realized I had written FADE. It's like I'm being haunted by Time. It kinda freaked me out.


I'm not very familiar with Britten (yet, just starting to explore) -- is there a particular selection you think suits? (And yes, isn't it strange how Time infiltrates every corner of our lives...?)

Then to represent The Book of Aubron (which of course allows you to travel backwards in time as well as forwards), you've got to have at least one version of the Doctor Who Theme - maybe even a completely bonkers mash-up deliberately designed to achieve Number 1 (it worked) - Doctorin' The Tardis.

For when it's all over, What'll I do, when you, are far, away, and I, am blue, what'll I do? Alternatively, Time to say Goodbye (made famous by Sarah Brightman & Andrea Bocelli).

Meanwhile, we've several versions of Castles in the Sand, but how about a Castle in a Cloud (Les Mis)?


REM added after squonk mentioned it lastpage; all your other suggestions now added too. So many versions of "What'll I Do" to choose from! For now I've gone with the Johnny Mathis and the Chet Baker versions -- if you had another in mind, let me know.

Did Rendall ever made a Comic about this?
If not he will do... :wink:

Well I'm glad I uncoma'd to this even though my body really wants to still be comaing and my alarm doesn't go off until the newpic.

Holy quote pyramid Batman!

Me too!! Glad I'm not the only one.

(Yep, same here)

I think of doing so as a way of experiencing the time that's passed. ... that's past. Both make sense.

Me too, except ..... JUST NOW, when on page 433 !! And it was by mistake!!!! I friggin spoilered myself!

I inadvertently clicked my aubronwood tab and there she was, LaPetite! I froze, and I think my heart stopped for just a moment. But I couldn't skip ahead on the thread! And so I continued reading through the newpages, catching up, seeing the bleak mood worsen, knowing that hope was just around the corner, but unable to provide any hope!

But now we have all found hope -- let me get those hats finished!

This is precisely why I don't keep an Aubronwood tab open... and am very careful whenever I do open one. I'm not sure if it's my browser or what, but if you leave it alone for a bit it has a tendency to start cycling again.

Yep, that's exactly what happened. Usually I am so so careful! I close my eyes first and hit F5 so it starts at the beginning. Oh well.

A song that's kept coming to my mind every time one or both of them left the beach, but that I never brought up because it doesn't really mention Time, is seeming more appropriate now with the fade to gray (and all the speculation about dreaming):

Between the silence of the mountains,
And the crashing of the sea,
There lies a land I once lived in,
And she's waiting there for me,
But in the grey of the morning,
My mind becomes confused,
Between the dead and the sleeping,
And the road that I must choose.

Moody Blues, "Question"

I'm amazed how many people around here know the Moody Blues; this is what, the fourth or fifth song of theirs mentioned?
Edited for fade.
