In other words, there's plenty to do!

This is the main reason I want to connect on facebook with everyone I can. That way I can recognize you all if we ever cross paths again. That and I can't wait to see what the feeds of such a great group of interesting and intelligent people contain. Link to the new OTT fb group.

Not being a very good OTTer, I hope I'm not repeating that which has already been said. (Even if it has, I'm not a frequent "me too" sinner, so allow me this once.)

Thank you, Randall, for a delightful story told in a way that may have never been done before. Similarities abound - ever hear of soap operas? - but once an hour for a third of a year? That's cool.

I also think it is cool that Randall knew his audience well enough to know that somebody (or, in our case, some troika) of his audience would archive the images right from the start. We even caught the shooting star! This exercise would have been almost pointless were it not for this audience.

And thanks to this wonderful group. I now have molpies to keep me company, blitzing to keep me occupied, and more cake than I could eat in a lifetime. (And even one serving of jambalaya.)

I won't promise that this is my last post, but it feels like it.

edo, dear edo, don't feel that way. It's because it's not just a webcomic that people have, and always had, strong feelings about it.

I'll still be here for the blitzers when they get to the present! And I hope you will too! :)

I'll definitely still be here for the blitzers. With cupcakes and everything.

Indeed not. :cry: I had planned on having a very awesomeful weekend in the Outside, but so far I've just been staring at my computer screen trying to fill a giant empty hole in my chest. That might sound dramatic anywhere else on the internet, but I know you guys are with me. Toomanyfeels.jpg I just still can't believe we don't have Cuegan to follow around and anticipate anymore.

mscha wrote:Oldpixbot, you say? Yes, I thought of that too, but I don't way to just set that up by myself. If we, as a group, decide we need a rerun of Time, I can set up a page that updates oldpixly, and an oldpixbot that posts the oldONG 10 minutes after oldONGtime if it hasn't been posted yet.

I like your lingo here, mscha. :P But honestly, I couldn't bear to see the oldONGs posted all the way through again. Each hour it'd just be a painful reminder...

Here's my twitter account, (real name attached if you're weirded out by that sort of thing).

And because we like charts, hey look, it's the OTT! Mustarding up xkcd fora statistics since March 2013H:

I guess it might be like last nip, when we were still trying to figure out the epilogue loop and that one frame repeated only to be replaced (I believe mscha said 8 minutes after the hour?) and it was noticed by 19 after the hour.
It could end up being something like that. Someone notices that the on-the-hour post hasn't been made and goes ahead and post one 20, 30, 40 minutes late, only to have several people try to post on the hour for the next one.
New thought while writing this. Could newpixbot be programed to see if an old ONG has been posted for a given hour and randomly post an Oldpic by, let's say, 25 after the hour? It would give slowpokes a chance to come up with one, but still keep the thread going...

Edit
I guess I was ninja'd by Valarya's re-posting of what mscha said earlier. ( I kinda remember him saying that, too.) However, this is sorta different, in a way, since the current suggestion is random posts, not just repeating the OTC in order.

From 306. I may be suffering from nostalgia already- I just chose a page at random. But, considering the events of the last few newpics, I figured that the post deserved a "called it" recognition.

I like this idea, because I miss seeing the ONGs sprinkled through the most recent newpages. One concern might be, though, that the people posting "random" newpix might have a tendency to favor certain frames (close-up on trebuchet, LaPetite's return, etc.). Perhaps if we had a list like mscha's to pick our rONGs from, and when a new rONG was posted on the OTT that newpix would be marked as "already posted" on the list? ...But that might be too complicated. Could be I'm just overthinking this waaaay too much. I miss Time. :(

Or feminism. Or, frankly, books. On the other hand, I've always struggled quite a bit with The Dispossessed. But my favorite of her works is a short story, even though I don't usually like short stories. "The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas" -- if you haven't read it, take the Time and do so.

I agree abut UKL--a wonderful writer. With that touch of melancholy.
But, even though I enjoy "The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas," I often think of it when we have a certain meal, and I remember "The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelets" . . .

BTW, am I Pope for a page? Do we still have them? A Blitzer Pope--is that heresy, like an Anti-pope?

However, I have no momentous decrees to decree. Except, perhaps, to decree that I will make no decrees.

Mourning the loss of molpys is acceptable.

In traditional novel structure, there is the climax and then dénouement. The difference is that the audience knows it's dénouement, falling action. We didn't. We thought that the drifting through the Short Night was a continuation of the climax (the Sea is still rising!) and when Cuegan built the Last Sandcastle, then headed onto the new shore with some of the Forty, we viewed it as continuation of plot, not the last couple of pages. *sigh*

That's it, exactly. Our fault for getting so caught up we weren't paying attention. No, GLR's fault for writing such a gripping tale that we completely lost track of where we were. No, not a fault at all. It's right, and it does leave room for a sequel. I don't really expect that he'll use this format again, but I suspect we'll learn more Beanish somehow.

I said early on that I'm glad I was here for it when it happened, and that's still true. Others here are smarter or more creative. (Some of you are both.) I spent all of Time in the present. I think the longest time I was away was when my internet went down for 11+ hours. That was the only morning I missed ketching up, and I never was behind at the end of a day. I'm not sure what that says about me, but it speaks volumes about the OTT and the OTC.

I do have an OTTification I was working on. It isn't much, I thought I'd have more Time.

I think the papacy is a good tradition to continue - one of its purposes was to make each newpage more exciting while we Waited for it, and now we're Waiting harder than we ever have before...

And nope, not heresy - we've had blitzer and ketchup popes before. :)

I think hourly might be a bit much. While there is plenty for us to be staying for, there's significantly less than before and an hourly rONG would become more than a "sprinkling"

Been lurking the OTT a long time....never managed to blitz, but often doing ketchup for several pages at a time. Very much enjoyed reading all the commentary and analysis....what a great community you all have wrought.

I was just thinking....what if GLR designed the final panel to be similar to Externalities [link denied], where the water level was tied to the number of NP in the OTT. That way, as the posts continue to roll in, our raft would continue to rise?

Just a thought.
Oh, as I was registering this account, one of my captcha words was "benease"....and I was thinking "Beanese? Wow, that entered the mainstream quick..."


@Tatiana - very clever OTTification! we don't get poetry filks very often.
@Sciscitor- :shock: ! Thanks for all the new data. This needle-pulled thing is definitely bigger than it looked.
@Zooman - thanks for submitting a VO for some of the Cueganites! Latent, yappo or I will make sure it gets added to the dropbox for the overall project. :)

Going through the OTC on Geekwagon, and...
Frame 2903 is mustarded. Mscha's 2898 (same frame) is fine.
Remember waiting a half hour for one darkening pixel? Pepperidge Farms remembers...
Note To Blitzers:It is advisable NOT to go past page 1130 until you've seen up to frame 2900 (Geekwagon Numbering). A lot is happening, and really, you do not want to skip ahead at that point.

Clearly, we could do something like that, Blitzgirl has the art skills, as do others, so we could create our own version and not be infringing, but I'd really like it if Randall would put it in his store, with his art.

Another suggestion about posting oldpix. If you are reBlitzing and come across a frame that is especially meaningful to you, and you have something interesting to say about it, post it with your comments. Nevermind the time. It could be a nice surprise at anytime. Sometimes a conversation will get going. Flag it with something different from ...ONG, maybe REMEMBER WHEN...

I have to go off for some real world stuff, but I wanted to add a quick couple of comments.

I like the idea of coloring the frames, I would take a crack at one myself.

I like the idea of an annotated book, but it would be a LOT of work for someone.

As far as the whole facebook, twitter, email, steam thing. Do you think, before it's too late and people start wandering off, we could maybe have a place on the wiki or something where we could maintain a list of the information people were inclined to share to stay in touch? It's really hard to sift back through the way new pages are still coming pretty fast and find all the people sharing their facebook links, or sharing their emails, or sharing their twitter, or steam. It would be nice to have one location we could go to get all of that as people choose to share it or not.

Lastly...hmmmm, France...Chateau D'if...in the fall...might be tempting even to some of us overseas.

Nice selection for the first Flashback.
Yeah, we're still trying to understand the OTC. And we don't want to go back to being anonymous lurkers.

Nice suggestion for the format, too. Make sure it's labeled with a frame number someplace and has a clear rONG title.

I really want to find out what happened to Lucky. I hope he was high enough that he made it out alive as the waters rose. I'm still looking at his body language on the attack frames, plus the fact that he went for the pack and not the tender stick-figure flesh underneath, and thinking he just wanted to be friends. Then Megan thwapped him with a stick would would definitely scare him into lashing out. Perhaps I have an inordinate fondness for meowlpies, but I'd like to think the whole Lucky episode was just a misunderstanding.

I'm afraid our pricklymolp friend is for Davy Jones' locker, though. :(

Megan needs to return the maps she borrowed, and we very much need more beanish text to help us decipher it. No fair posting an incomplete puzzle and forcing us to leave it unfinished!

It seems likely that the sea has yet to reach its new level, what with the various filling rates of the several basins that make up the totality of the Mediterranean. Will a further sea rise catch the Cueganites unprepared? Will the castleraft drift away since they don't seem to have tied it up or left anyone on board to watch it? These are the reasons the ending seemed abrupt to me, and why we should eventually have more. If the GLR doesn't supply them then I suppose we need fanfic to fill these gaps. What say ye, oh creative geniuses of the OTT?

Actually, you can use geekwagon and aubronwood numbers on mscha's, too, like so:
http://xkcd.mscha.org/viewer/g2222
http://xkcd.mscha.org/viewer/a2222
http://xkcd.mscha.org/viewer/2222

Just type g before the number for geekwagon, a for aubronwood, and you will go straight to that newpix.

where everyone can color a frame with artistic freedom. I imagine a system that allows people to reserve a frame, and to submit their interpretation to that frame in the same size as the OTC frames. This could create a WONDERFUL experience.
Anyone else thinks this mit be a good idea? Is there a chance we could color/recreate All the frames?

I like this idea - it's like those art installations where identical base statue/forms are handed out to a large group of artists, and then they are free to "decorate" them as they individually choose to. It might be a fun side-project, like the voice-over one we have going.

Yes. That's the kind of project that explains the image I had in my head.

I guess there should be a few images posted here before anyone should be asked to add some kind of automation for the process, I'll go and pick a frame now. Hmm, so many to choose from.
Come to think of it, I actually don't mind if there are several versions of the same frame... I think a wiki page will be enough to start with at this point. I'll go and set one up.
It's about time.

HES wrote:I don't care if they sell my facebook information, because it's all useless.
On the contrary. It's probably useless to an individual, but that's not where the problem lies. Rather, the network of who you know, who you interact with, and in what ways, is a good indicator of how to influence you without your being aware of it. This is useful for Amazon, Century21, the New York Times, and potential employers.

Amazon could change the prices of its books for each person, individually, tailored to what it would be best for them for you to read.

Century21 could "build better neighborhoods" (and make more sales) by showing likeminded people properties in the same areas.

The New York Times could write their articles with each paragraph (or even each sentence) in several versions, and present a customized version of the article to you, under the same URL, without your being aware of it. When your friend goes to the same article, they get different text.

And of course employers could use the social graph to decide who to interview.

That is the downside. Not whether somebody two countries away finds my name.

As to posting old Ongs... I don't see why. The entire collection is out there. In fact, it's in here!

per old papal decree: When in Paso Robles some time ago, I took some pix of rather friendly squirpies... I tried to get closeups but they were so friendly and they usually got so close they were out of frame. Here's one of the better ones.

[size=85]edit: playing with the attachment thing. Here's what I figured out:
If you upload an attachment, place it inline, preview it, right click on the image to get the URL, put that URL inside img tags, you'll put the image where you want it, and there will be a redundant attachment. If you delete the attachment (from the post), the attachment remains on xkcd, the URL remains valid, and the image inside img tags remains visible and quotable, disappears from xkcd.

eta: The image itself disappeared. Now I'll try re-attaching a different squirpy (from the same trip), but not click place it inline. (It still shows up inline, but since it has a different file number, I have to change the file number in my img tag to get it to show up.

It's what I did here. Let me know if this did not work. My next experiment will be to use the file URL from the attachment in this post as the attachment for another post. If that works, then the "redundant spoilers" can all be stuffed in one massive archive post, and need not appear as redundancies in the actual post that uses it.
