Happy half birthday, Timers! (It took me three changes to spell birthday correctly, but that is not the point)

Maybe we could aim for 1500 pages seeing as we're less than a page away. Please post randomness and cake while I just post banana fudge souffle.

Nice cake!

I got hooked on Time on the 26th March 2013, but didn't join the forums/thread until quite a while after, even though I had seen the thread. How about my fellow OTTers?

Time travel is ONLY available if you have molpied down from NP2+ - and as that loses all your boosts and the one time I tried it broke I haven't tried again - I would like @ED to implement another way to enable Time Travel.

As for getting Irregular Rivers - you need to be at Judgment level 8+ and have got "Stacked" - this is easlier than when I got it. Note it is rather expensive you need 8,290,000,000 sand - getting that is challenging (while maintaining the Judgement level).

Fractal Castles is much easier you just need to have dug by hand 50,000,000,000 sand - I get more than that from a single click now.

Same as you. *looks at join date* EXACTLY the same in fact! We must be Time-Twins :mrgreen: (Although I think I got into the OTC a bit earlier, on the 25th itself. The first newpix I saw was when they'd built the first little turret.)

Also, in Sandcastle Builder, I'm getting no newpix! The game works fine, but where the newpix should be is all black... Could just be a problem at my end though, my internets have been abysmal these past few dips. (ETA: Hah, typical, right after posting this the newpix JUST appeared :P)

Welcome back Edo! What a refreshing treat!

OMR, what have I started with these cows! I had no idea! At some point I had the idea of doing a similar thing with fox (to help save a nature preserve near where I live)... it never went anywhere, though we did manage to save the land... by buying it back at a hefty premium from the corporation that was going to mustard it up. Loved seeing the lobsters, especially in the ottie! (The other manips were also very treeish, but that one took the cake, and the cupcakes, and the c**kies too!)

Six months, 1500 pages, wow. 3000 pages a year. (Well, it will probably be less than that since the EOT, but we're still chugging along at a nice 3 NP/dip clip.

It sure gives one pause! (and since we're otters, paws).

Oops, just tempted the saws.

Can I escape its claws?

or will I need lots of gause?

It's ok, I'm not breaking any laws -

just my character flaws.

@Kieryn - I've been enjoying your #newslides! Very treeish and steakish, but not like a tree made of steak, or a steak made of trees (steambottle!) (even if stakes are made from trees) It's hardly much of a prediction that Little Kieryn will go up the stairs with the lantern, and it will die halfway up. There will be people there, and he will discover something really cool after he finishes being scared out of his wits. I predict the people are there to observe something relating to the sky, and seasons, perhaps based on superstitions.

It looks like it has missed a leter - A couple of hours ago (the same tme frame as this) the images in CB were all black for ~10 minutes. CB fetches the images from mscha's server - it is possible that the glitch is mscha's.

This is exactly why I mentioned the possibility of mustardiness. I had trouble connecting to mscha's site a bit before that time, though. Is anyone else keeping track of the epilogue frames?

ETA: It may very well be mustard. The three most recent frames are "CCD" which follow the pattern if one was omitted while the site was down.

All of this cake looks delicious. And there's plenty of it for all of us!

I like the look of this one.

Looks like you're right, waveney - the sequence is continuing as usual. *sigh*

For what it's worth, the image currently displayed at http://xkcd.com/1190/ is 18221034234d28af3ee888d6de232e80341848145dbe2cdb19d594df914508d2.png, which is frame 3093, or D in mscha's system. Before the posttemporal ONG a few minutes ago, it was C. Perhaps someone else can figure out whether that means the mustard is Randall's or mscha's.

It seems to be mscha's. The oldpixbot has missed a letter, because the epilogue sequence page is an hourH behind where it should be, according to local time. As other OTTers have noted, mscha's site wasn't working for a short period earlier todip (about noon EST) so it must have missed the oldpix then (which should have been a D frame). xkcd is returning the correct frame for the current Time.

Molpy cake!

I was just thinking how I need to add E Y and Z postfixes to my number formatting :D

Happy half birthday! I should go back to coma. Somehow I spontaneously woke just in time to buy more rivers before the ONG. Neat!
I'll be buying BKJ! and Ch*rpies soon. Could ha've already except I justhapp ened to lack sand at that moment so I bought another river instead.

Also now I know what to call a boost that temporarily gives a heap more sand per click.

There should be a "Grapevines" boost that makes the molpies more powerful :P. Or maybe there already is and I haven't got to it yet...

The latter :P
ETA how does it know when I want Blitzing or Not Lucky so it can give me the opposite? And it always gives ASHF via Factory Automation when I'm looking at another tab.

ETA I was half joking but IT JUST HAPPENED AGAIN WHY I COULD HAVE HAD BKJ! ON THE CHEAP:(

ETA warp speed!

ETA um why is my first BKJ! Blitzing a couple hundred x? It should start from 9. I done goofed!
