Not at all. Seriously, my neighbors had baby goats, and they were super playful and loyal. Like puppies. They are great pets until they grow up and eat all of your stuff.

Oh yes, same here, helped take care of some on the other side of the road, got to watch mama goat eat the afterbirth after giving birth to a pair of kids, etc. I was just going for the cheap pun there, was all.

I'm sorry I've just registered to tell that I'm quiet surprised that no one here thought about the possibility that he was waiting for the new season of "game of thrones"...
At the rate he seems to build his sand castle, I assume he will finish by the time of the first episode.

... No?

Then, like the genius Randall is, he will create a loop so it just starts building over again, taking inspiration from Men in Hats (tomorrow is the first day of the rest of your lives, fellow TimeWatchers - today we must dance for Randall's amusement).

I can't post URLs or have a sig yet, otherwise Men in Hats would have one, and I would currently be using this as my sig:

I like this idea, but it'd be cool with different sandcastles built (random variation even). Time isn't circular, but keeps on going, but we keep building things anyway.

FWIW, I got updates through a couple of channels at . . . umm, 6 newpix since FNC, 0 newpix UTC, whatever you want to call it. Maybe another problem on some servers, but not others. I'll put it here along with the ones before and after, hidden by spoiler, so you can check if you've seen all three, and what the difference is.

Which 3 AM? What I do know is, I have a steady stream of the last 9 newpix, since the Long Newpix back then.

Added: The middle one there, 6 np FNC, would be 3 AM EDT.

I think your times are correct. I was beginning to wonder if I had imagined the 7:00 UTC update. Nice to see someone else confirm what little sanity I have left.

Then that should have been that one, indeed. UTC is pretty much the same as what was called GMT, Greenwich Mean Time, if that helps. Also sometimes called Zulu Time. Five hours ahead of Eastern Standard Time, four hours ahead of Eastern Daylight Time.

For my part, of those choices (and if I'm not allowed the globe), Goode Homolosine. And I can't help noticing how the Hobo-Dyer description relates to the much earlier discussion of gender-neutral pronouns. :lol:
