Chirp it, Centipope. Interestingly (using the term loosely), I was also the pope half the thread ago. Time to adorn my papal hat hat, courtesy of kenmelken all those newpix ago:

I knew my Windows and the Chrome installed on it were slow post-startup (and post-crash), but this slowness has just reached a whole new level. I almost threw the notebook through the window.
On other news, eBay has just responded my messages. They want to verify my identity. A bit late for that, I think.
Also, went to a music show today. Amazing. Was going to ask something inspired in one of the songs.

Half of TIME ago? I don't even remember what I was doing last week!

Congrats on being duplipope, Image!

Interestingly enough, 800 newpages ago I had mentioned Angelastic and her love of JoCo music. She's been over on Facebook lately and has a lot of ketchup waiting on the OTT.
I also wrote this in response to an Outsider who stumbled into the OTT:
BlitzGirl, Newpage 800 wrote:Because we all were young, and we will all be old. But this does not surprise those of us who pay close attention to Time; we have grown used to having friends from both Past and Present (and perhaps the Future) who join us in our journey along this needle-pulled thing. A newfound blitzer just stumbling into our Thread is as welcome as one of our Old Ones who has been with us since the beginning of Time. We take care of our own, give each other Present Presents, and feed everyone cake. A cult? Perhaps, though I would check back to the early newpages if you really want to see some culty action. At this point in Time we're more like an extended viewing party at the top of the OtherComics forum, here for fun, good conversation, and to see what happens in the next frame of Time.

We don't have newpix anymore, but we still have fun and molpish conversations! :)

On Lucky's gender: I've always liked the idea of Lucky being female...let me hunt down some old quotes... Image

I hacked into Google to find the rest of the story. Here it is:
Spoiler:
Lucky the Leopard

Lucky the leopard is alone in the world. She doesn't have a mother, a father, or any sisters or brothers. Lucky is also very clumsy. Everything she does ends with a CRASH! BANG! BOOM! But she always lands on her feet, that's why her name is Lucky!

One day, Lucky decides to find a family. Will she have any luck?
Lucky is taking a walk on her favorite hill when she sees a boy and a girl. They look friendly! Maybe they can be her family? But she is a little bit shy, so she follows them at a distance.
After a while, the boy and girl finally arrive at the top of the hill. (That took them quite a long time! They are not such good climbers as Lucky is – at least on a good day when she's not so clumsy.) There's a hut there! The boy and girl take a look around the hut, and then start to play. They are making a sandcastle. Lucky really likes sandcastles!

Finally, Lucky finds the courage to go and meet the boy and girl. She runs towards them, and gives the boy a big hug!
But what happens now?? The girl is not so nice after all! She picks up a stick, and starts to hit Lucky! That is not nice! It really hurts!
Lucky quickly runs off, and starts licking her wounds.
Today is not the day that Lucky finds a new family. But tomorrow, there is a new day! Will she try again?

I'd rather see her come back with:

I was musing about the Ace of Pentacles. Whatever happened to the molpy Tarot deck? I had also noticed that "unusual" has an unusual number of "u"s. It was at this time that CasCat and taixzo broke all Blitz speed records, ultimately becoming BlitzGirl the Fasts.

Such heady Times!

And now twice I've been jumped by new posts while posting! Heady Times are not over!

Hmm yeah, wonder if she's in the basement... I'd have never heard of Jonathan Coulton were it not for people (mainly Angelastic) mentioning him in the thread. Well, apart from "Still Alive", but I never knew who did it :P. I guess he's super popular in the geek community but even though I'm definitely a geek of some sort I'm much more familiar with the metal community. Anyway the point is he's rather good so I'm glad this thread introduced him to me :D.

Coming to think of it, we don't actually know any genders, names, species, or hat colours for certain. But why would that stop us?

Well, I guess this is as good a Time to crawl out of the woodwork as any...

Haven't posted since NP 1526 {I've read up to NP 1559 tho.}

Let's just say I've been distracted, okay.

Per page-pope; I've been "going down memory lane"/"doing research" so I already had all my OTT posts up. It looks like I was in the middle of a "posting vacation" at NP 800 too. I don't have any posts on that page and only one for that dip {NP 794}. It included a welcome to jcmckeown and a riverish comment on the "current" new OtherComic 1222.

-------------
As an aside (and one reason why I was doing the research), while looking at my copies of OTTcolored and OTTmanips I noticed one that I posted on NP 1330 has a typo in it {HUMBlez me (yet again)} and it doesn't use the One True Font, so I thought I'd update it. And then I decided to make a second one as a reply. {Never underestimate the difficulty of matching textures you don't remember using.}

The first is the replacement and the second is the new one:

Thanks for the welcome back BlitzGirl and yappo.
And thanks to Aluisio for the lion cake.

I will get around to doing a proper ketchup of the last 40 or 50 or 80 pages, but not tonip.

A few things I noticed were;
BltzGirl at over 4000 posts (Go Bgirl, Go.).
There's evidently a new "Acts of the Clerics" I've missed (sorry Jose).
Did I see Aluisio put up a new story too?
I saw that BytEfLUSh showed up for a minute, too. (Hey guy.)
There seems to a rash of "brainslugs" running around. (Heck I saw mention of them in the Wiki.)
TheMinim seems to be trying to OTTify the entire OtherComic archive. This needs investigation.
And waveney's publishing a new Time After Time story. I need to check that out too.

-------------

One other thing my research lead me to. I wanted to find out how long it took me to get out of mod-queue by comparing the time-stamp of my 'first-post' (as listed on the page) vs. the time-stamp of the e-mail I got telling me I was published.
The fun part of going back to that page (NP 437 - Heretic date: Sun Apr 28, 2013) was the "Roll Call" of TimeWaiters on that page (In order of 1st post on page [with multiples noted] (bonuses: pope & goat; who got the "Ongs" and their phraseOng; and a buffyhat.))

Pikrass [x3] [page pope as of 5-Nov-13]
KarMann
BytEfLUSh [x2]
spamjam
Latent22
NoMouse [x2]
ChronosDragon [x2]
buffygirl [x5] [4th post has Eternal Density's "River-hat"]

-----

Just for fun: Do a "Roll Call" for the page with your first post to the OTT. (whether that was your first post to xkcd-fora or just to the OTT.) It might be kind of fun.

anyway, I finished the second one. Bravo HES, that was a really good map, I love how all the rooms eventually came together. I only broke it once, and very minimally, hopping over that no access fence. I've tried making portal 2 maps myself, but my ideas keep being things that don't actually work in portal 2. (Is there a good way to have things be togglable, instead of timed or permanent?)

I didn't post on page 800.I looked all the way to 820 and found nothing. But StormAngelpost ed on 807 about Joe's Pizza.
Also I was mentioned briefly, which I shall quote without comment :

Hmm, connections. Erectile Dysfunction is abbreviated ED. ED is an acronym for Eternal Density. Connected. None of us, of course, have ED, except maybe ED....though if xey doesn't have an E then the D is the least of xeir's problem.
I was quoted twice on 798 though. Well actually HES was quoted quoting me:

You know I have Portal (and the OTT) on the brain when I get this email from the DBAs during release last night (work crap) and think to myself "THE PORTAL ISN'T OPENING?" Heh

Also on 818 BlitzGirl hit 800 and posted that pic of the cake with far too many candles which we saw recently.


It was treeish to see lots of OTTers who are still around and sad to see many by some who are not. For instance, charlie

You should't buy that boost. Because reasons.

Anyhow:

Code: Select all

## 2.95
- Single lettter typo
- Glasss Saw power multipler should worrk now
- Automata Assemble lets you upgrade glass storage any time.
- Control Automata price reflects the description
- Earning a Badge when you have Badgers recalculates sand dig rate
- DeMolpify function now handles empty string or undefined value (returns 0) which should prevent stack overflow

This was fun! Thanks for the idea, pelrigg. :)
Okay, here we go. Disclaimer: This post is full of heretical dates.
I first posted on Newpage 214, before starting my Quest:

Time is a river.

The date was Apr 02, 2013, just over a wip after Time began.
It took only 1.25 longpix to fill up this newpage with posts. So on this newpage there was only one ONG, newpix 321:

The biggest topic, of course, was discussion about the river, which had just been mentioned for the first Time in the OTC by Megan in newpix 320. For reference, this was over 340 newpix before OTTers learned that it was small.

The roll call: A lot of these posters have riverish post counts, and disappeared sometime in April. But some notable OTTer names showed up, including ED and SBN. As for the column headings, PoP is the number of posts they had on the page, LastPost is the date of their last OTT post, and LVisit is their last visit to the fora, if significantly later than the last OTT post.
