I want to figure out @january1may
's problem set scores, i.e. what figures result in a final mark of 6, but wondering if writing a program just for that is a bit obsessive.

I just filed a bug with Apple because of something I found while working on Haiku Detector which I am pretty sure is m*stard. On Mac OS X 10.10.3, two carriage returns (\r) followed by any integer, a dot, then a space, will be pronounced 'zero'.
I hope no one relies on this bug as part of their workflow!
I installed a daemon that triggers my CPU heating
in response to mispronounced numbers, thus freeing up my spacebar for other things.

It was during the Madness, about 6 wips ago, whilst editing the list of wordfilters for Mod Madness 2015. I realised after I made that comment (which was yesterdip, then I got distracted and forgot about it) that maybe someone else was editing the same article at the same time, which would cause the same symptoms. We were probably destroying each other's work. But the server should detect when that has happened and warn me, or force me to perform a manual merge, the way SCCS
do. Either way I'd think it's a bug.
However, as you point out, if this was affecting everyone systematically it would have been noticed and fixed fairly quickly. So maybe the caching thing. But I hate Wikia's editor so it's not likely to happen too often anyway.
… (which of course leaves open the possibility that I'm unaware of a silent majority preferring it that way). If at some future time I see a consensus emerging for any other solution, I'm willing to help implement that too. …
Yep, I feel pretty much the same way. If you look at the old comments on the OTTercomics page you'll see that for a while I was helping implement the collapsing sections, by getting relevant code from other Wikias that had solved similar problems before us. I'm pretty flexible … (and it's rare I even need to use that particular wiki page, since I've downloaded all the OTTercomics, Time frames, TimeAfterTime frames, bftf, Othercomics, and attachments for offline access.)
But certainly I would welcome it very much if other OTTers get more active on the wiki again, too.
, there is a picture of Rocky the Flying Squirrel, a cartoon character associated with Bullwinkle the Moose, and the other is apparently Vasco Nunez de Balboa, an explorer from about 450 yips earlier. Hmmm, let's try searchfu… Okay, according to this
there was a "Peabody's Improbable History" called "Vasco Nunez de Balboa", and that was a cartoon from the same franchise featuring Mister Peabody, a smart dog. I can't find a video of that episode but here
is one establishing the characters and the recurring "Wayback Machine". (The second half, involving Rapunzel, is a separate unrelated cartoon). So Rocky and Vasco Nunez de Balboa are connected by a Time Machine. I think that's as RELATED
as need be
What do I win?
… A little google-fu and, guess where they occur? Rail timetables! Odjazdu is "departure" and "przyjazdu" is arrival …
Wonderful, thanks for the EE:EE:EExplanation!
