Thank you.

Edit: Popage: I was thanking Sustainabilizer for enhancing "that" for me. So, like, decree is to thank someone for whatever wowterful thing they do for you, us, themselves. If you can't find someone to thank, uh, just thank me. :mrgreen: *greed* 8-)

I assume that is a papal decree, decreeing us to thank someone.

I thank BlitzGirl for keeping the puns in check.

You're spot on (sorta). Thank you for noticing and assuming exactly what I was going to decree (after the fact)! :)

Two things. 1. I don't have the post counter script nor was I keeping track. I probably should have quoted for my reply. 2. I think it's always an awesomeful idea to decree based on the content of your post at the time. So, if I were to talk about liking cupcakes, the decree would probably be to bring cupcakes to the yard. But, I thanked someone, therefore, yeah. (Oooh! But you could thank someone with a cupcake!)

One more thing. ^____________^

When I read "carcastle" i think "carcass" (tle) instead of "car" (castle)

I once showed my OTT folder listing. (viewtopic.php?p=3615798#p3615798, viewtopic.php?p=3616087#p3616087) Today it's even more.

Today I came back home. A donut from Santa was waiting for me. :shock: We don't usually have donuts here.

Hmm, why don't we have a footnote for Yeah? I think we should.

When I proposed it some time ago, there was no support, but I'm using molpy13 as the unofficial footnote.

The standard footnotes are really just to appease the molpies anyway. Officially there are no official footnotes13. Myself, I like to use subscripts anyway.

Edit: Montov you almost got me to walk into that one. Almost.

Hello fellow OTTers!

After a few unmolpish weeks I finally had Time to properly ketchup. Thank you for all the wowterful things in the OTT!

It just came up, so I feel I have to share that I am still wearing my buffyhat (which was donated to me without request as I may add :-)).

On other news: There are now exactly 1.400 OTTers (or OTHers who do not consider them an OTTer) who have posted at least once in the OTT according to the latest Database update. The OTT may be a bit slow right now but the diversity of participents has risen a bit. So all ist well in the OTT.

Speaking of the Database I found Time to tend to it. Please expect some intermittent service this wipend as I am upgrading the servcastle. There is already a fallback in place should there be any mustard during the process. As I can see from the logs there is quite some traffic handled by it from various other projects.

Keep OTTing!

Still here, and very thankful to Davean and the mods for keeping the forum up and running for us, each in their own ways. Not a lot else to say, though I've been enjoying all that's been going on in the thread. Congrats to SBN's daughter on her square-hattedness! Does this signal the start of another square-hat pursuit, or is she now looking for FFSs?

And I've been concerned about Kieryn for a while - it's said "next slide in 11 days" for a long Time. More than 11 days. More even than 11 business days. Hope he's ok.

We are still figuring out how it happened. There are more theories than OTTers by my estimate. What we do know is that it is molpish.

Thanks to balthasar and SilentTimer and the other TaT stories, and thanks to those who analyze and enhance them.

Thanks to Sustainabilizer for organizing the OTTer meetup.

Thanks to Alexxander Lord for xis recent revealing.

Thanks to SBN for sharing the molpish news about her daughter.

Thanks to GLR for Time.

Thanks to the mods for their modding.

Thanks to Sciscitor for updating the database.

Thanks to Yappo for reaching 2700 and giving me an excuse this (badly manipped) image:

Thanks to a good friend who helped find a rental for MSWFP and I (and the wolpies.) The next phase of our relocation will be getting underway after the holidips.

Thanks to everymolpy for the congratulations for my daughter. She's now looking for a FFS, had an interview this week that she should hear about soon.

Thanks to lmjb for saying so much of what I was thinking.
Also, to lmjb, yes, look for a new FFS. It's easier to find one when you have one already. (And stay safe out there.)

Thanks to mscha for his molpy hunting skills, and to other absent OTTers for their contributions. You're missed, every one.

Just got back from a Seawolpy gig. I had some major brainmustard. For some reason I was convinced this gig was tomorrow and it wasn't until I happened to check the facebug event page at about 2pm that I found out it was in fact today. So I had to rush to get ready and be there in time for soundcheck. Silly molpy.

azule wrote:I also like "quickpix". I don't think that one is from the past.
This not only is heresy, it is blasphemy! "Quickpix" is in the Prayer of BlitzGirl, which all OTTers should revisit often. It is below, and expresses the foundation of our molpishness.

With words that must never be forgotten, BlitzGirl wrote:I have seen many wonders on my Quest, and this I have learned: Time is not absolute. Though dedicated forum-dwellers may debate names to a Period fresh to their eyes, a weary wanderer may come to the same TimeFrame many longpix later seeing it as but a flash in the long, long thread of Time. While some among us hold fast to the heels of the Now, posting with immediacy and brevity, there are still others at the same moment following 10 newpages back, or 50, or 300. Those of us who experienced the great Fading in real-Time have shared an experience those that follow will never quite match, just as we ourselves cannot comprehend the madness that struck in the early quickpix, or during the Madness itself.

Yet these divisions do not separate us, but make us more powerful. As grains of Sand(semencancercoffeebabies) in a Sandcastle, this needle-pulled thing works best when we are not all of the same shape. Our quirks clasp us together all the more strongly, so that when we Wait for it together - whatever Time we may travel, whatever sect we may splinter, whatever graph or song or hat we share - we are not alone. For though Time may scatter us among the pastposts and the Present, in the end, it is also what brought us to this mad, mad, glorious home in the first place.


We need a new punishment for forgetting this, and I think the rack is appropriate here. So, I condemn you to feast upon the rack of lamb until you see the error of your ways!

Welcome Alexxander Lord! (Seems to me you should be Lord Alexxander Lord, because redundancy is molpish, and you seem like a Lord.) You wonder how this thread is still active? How can it not be so active? 'Tis a magical place, and we're glad you found your way back. Stick around and you'll see what keeps us together. Maybe one day you will realize that the yip you spent away from us needs to be made up; there will be this void in your soul that can only be filled by drinking fully from the One True Thread. Should that day ever arise, you'll know what to do. But if the present fills you, then you'll also know what to do, because whatever you do, we'll be here.

MistyCat! hi! were you here already? hihi!


No, I'm back after the event of finally getting my house repaired after the 2010 and 2011 Christchurch, New Zealand earthquakes. Since I couldn't stay in the house for that time I spent two months in a small cottage on the West Coast of New Zealand, with no phone, no cellphone, no Internet, no computer, no TV, and just two radio stations available. I did, however, have many bottles of beer, some books and some gardening tools.

Thank you, everymolpy without exception.

Update on the upgrading of The Database: Everything went pretty smooth, there was no mustard and service shall continue uninterrupted for the next one and a half yip (concering the operating system of the organized sandcastle).

Warning: Computery Stuff ahead.
When I was putting my Zanclean Contingency Plan for the upgrade in place, I was notified that the providers of my virtual organized sandcastle now offer a managed Zanclean Contingency Plan of their own with four slots (allowing diply redundancy for up to two wips and one for even longer) for $ 5 a mip, for 48 GB (comprising a whole organized sandcastle). I think that is a pretty good offer but I do not have enough experience in that field to be sure. Does anymolpy know if that is a good deal?

This means that the people in the moonbase are approaching the Voldeframe! :shock:
Quick! Let's send some ice cream to them in the past!

@kxa: Don't fear the Voldeframe!
There are molpish things to come,
including a sequel to Time
and a story featuring you.


Also, thanks to everyone who wants to contribute to the upcoming conference – be it a physical, by-proxy or online speech, physical or online presence, sigvertising, or just molpish thoughts! :)
Again: If you need additional money, please contact me. (I already have sent some encrypted emails to some of you.)
Also, many thanks to sus_organizer for helping me to deal with the people of the hills administration of the Sustainable University. ;)
