Why won't Temporal Rift appear? D:

Postby Eternal Density » Thu Oct 10, 2013 9:30 am UTC

@ waveney
1. I didn't change expenditure, just build and destroy. But I can tone it down a few orders of magnitude if you think it needs it.
2. You just got them too late to be useful. Though I switched off Panther Salve to save glass so I don't have RRR yet and I expectiI'm far past its usefulness too. It's hard to balance these things...
3. Yeah I should tone down the price decrease to match the decreased availability

1. I think it needs it
2. Maybe you should bring the ceiling level into the lucky calculation, gaining a *10/*100 per level, it might then become viable
3. Making BB prevent/reduce the increase might be a simple fix, but even then the price might remain stable. The price is now very low, I was having to plan to get DoN before Glass Ceilings, now they are effectively free.

This is original, not based on an OtherComic. Eh.

I should get glass ceiling 8 later today. I save up large supplies of glass and then run through many stages in quick sucession leaving as many as possble ceilings in place and ensureing that I do at least have ceiling 0 to get the sand. The next batch needs 690 Glass so should be after the next ONG.

I have succeded in only 1 of 4 or 5 so far (many also time out before I have resolved them) I wish they didn't have the technicolor - that is distracting.

This message sent by em-rob twenty-seven has a certain rhyme
descended from x k c d one thousand fifty two, not Time


I've Blitzed five hundred sev'n'y six Newpages of the One True Thread,
and here, in just as many beats, a summary of what I've read:

(we'll use the tune from this recording yappobiscuits made for us
or supercalifragilisticexpialido-she-us)

"a Journey of Discovery"
(in Words the OTTers Wrote for Me)
Spoiler:
(orchestral intro, forty beats, and lead-in for two measures more
(with metronome at 2-oh-8, for those of you who have the score)


 Refresh? It does for sure update the image automatically. (NP10:36)
     Creation of a new religion moderately frightens me. (NP68:34)
 So how can we assume that any comic will remain the same? (NP32:29)
     ... the water level since the Great Expansion up until this frame? (NP248:6)
 The journey gives the wisdom and the bravery to take the charge, (NP109:11)
     The rate this thread is going, getting with the Time is pretty hard. (NP113:29)
 We're given zero reason to suspect it is significant (NP100:17)
     that Megan might return and they can build together once again. (NP119:26)

 Is Cueball laying back against the wall and staring at the sky? (NP128:1)
     That picture was unreasonably large and I apologize. (NP229:18)
 In all the precious moments of the one true needle-pulling thing, (NP277:14)
     and Proto-Indo-European Demons' instant RECKONING. (NP165:36, NP181:11, NP169:15)

 I'm shuffling frames to see if something interesting will come to light, (NP224:15)
     a universal panacea for the mysteries of life. (NP274:19)
 A satisfying explanation? That's a Holy Mystery, (NP297:15)
     and Aubron doesn't correlate exactly to the OTC. (NP465:25)
 Creating something even deeper out of the experience, (NP113:34)
     the opportunity to add a Monty Python reference. (NP377:15)
 Original discussion was around the title of the Knights (NP280:12)
     continuing to slowly undermine the castle on the right. (NP365:5)

 I doubt the Inquisition is considered a religious group, (NP301:15)
     nor every comic that continues endlessly is in a loop. (NP324:7)
 I wonder, what if Time is a reflection of this very Thread? (NP379:23)
     I'll read it all eventually, uh wait a minute what the heck. (NP428:18)

 They're obviously hashes generated on the server side; (NP394:23)
     I guess we'd love a coloured newpix delta view in Aubron style. (NP414:8)
 A sinking feeling nothing else about the OTC has caused -- (NP395:9)
     you're not alone in your enjoyment of the kitty avatars (NP423:1)
 On topic, yes this is a very interesting development, (NP416:21)
     more literary than a scientific or computer bent. (NP560:22)
 The OTT is basically a chatroom with a public log. (NP519:31)
     She travelled back to save the little trebuchet from being lost. (NP539:36)

 Already married -- sentiment appreciated nonetheless! (NP416:34)
     From boredom here is my interpretation of the current quest. (NP454:5)
 It's possible that Cueball just accused the sea of heresy... (NP515:10)
     Into the distance, on an endless journey of discovery! (NP523:29)

these lines were taken from the Thread, and clicking each, you'll plainly see
that only very rarely were they edited for poetry

I can't believe this brilliant capsule of our lovéd thread of Time.
It seems Caswallon speaks just right to give you fodder for your rhyme.

So that utterly describes me.

It seems that sort of person is the sort of person that uses these fora, as I fall into that category as well. I'm only really talkative with one other person at a time; it makes parties difficult. I end up following one person around the whole night.

Yeah, I'm sort of like this too, though with weird quirks. (I'm fine at parties if I have someone I know there to lead me into conversations, but I can't start them.)

did you know there's an introverts subreddit?


I'm an introverti, but I've gotten less shy as I get older. I like people; I just don't like being around them too much. I seem to have to figure out the unwritten "rules" of social exchange; but this is an advantage sometimes because I can operate in fuzzy areas where extroverts are bound by them.

Ha, that was great. :) The more redundakitties the less sanity. Chirpies is cuter, though.

Now, I'm not gonna stop you if you wanna submit an ottification for USD, but actually it was meant to be original works, hopefully of a related (to Time) nature, or at least related to the style*wii* of xkcd in general. The second is what I was going for with mine.


*wii*Style is subjective. It could mean visually (stick figures) or way of doing (as in subject matter).

Cute. Weird anthropomorphic face, but the cute thing is that leaf on its back. hehehe.

Edit: Sorry about life. Remember, when life sucks: reciprocate.

9 yips for me, too. It's pseudo stick figure. I have it right here if anyone's interested:

Hurray, I'm back! :D

Well, technically I was back home yesterdip, but upon booting up my trusty old laptop I encountered the Blue Screen of Mustard :shock: and the diagnostics told me my hard drive wasn't working. So I spent a dip and a half trying to get the computer to chirpin' fix itself, which was difficult when the disk check didn't want to work. Thankfully it seems to be behaving now, but I suspect my hard drive isn't too long for this world - already five yips old, and all that. I have my trusty redundakitties guarding redundant files on a backup drive in the case of further computer mustard. Steambottle.

But anyway, yay! Missed you xuys! Ten newpages in a wip is pretty respectable, and I'm looking forward to the ketchup. :)

@azule: hehehe, I get it.
@BlitzGirl: yay!
@yappobiscuits: maybe it's a sign that I just read this: http://joegp.com/signs/ (also, what's with the horrible jpg compression artifacts?)

Also I found some sketches I scanned several years ago but didn't have time to upload it here so I stuck it on google drive... except google drive didn't sync so I guess you're not seeing it todip :P

And yes I noticed the mustard in Glass Extruder...

Edit @ninja-azule: lol I just read that before jumping back to the start of the archive...

well, I did it. In honor of USD or whatever, here is an epic tale in the same format as the OTC, or Obelisk. note that because I used a gif instead of fancy javascript, you have to keep this page open to effectively wait for it.

USDong!

note: I couldn't really test this, so it might not work, but it should!

Seriously, I get out of my hole for just a few weeks, and you guys are still going strong over here?

And apparently quoting me in poetry, needless to say, I am flattered. :wink:

Haha! Aw, I need to read more of this Guineamolp othercomic when I molpy up tomorrip. Looks treeish! Although it makes me a bit of a sad molpy since one of our guineamolps died not long ago... we still have one, but she's lonely without her sister...

*OOFT* That was a big glomp! :mrgreen:
Yeah, he must've secretly bestowed some upon me.
Anyway. Awesomeful to have you back! Hope the trip was treeish!

Molpy down.

I noticed that a while back :) I keep waiting to hear about some sort of northwest XKCD meetup. Still have yet to do ay geohashing up here though, so cannot complain too much.
