Does anything about this seem kind of... eerie to anyone? Maybe it's just because it's really late and when I first saw the comic I expected it to be animated and was half-expecting a screamer or something, but the mysteriousness of it all is just giving me kind of a creepy vibe.

Another update at 1:30am.
The comic went up at 1:00am (stupid DST), first update at 1:10am, second at 1:30am. I'm curious to see if there will be another at 2:00am.

EDIT: apparently I am mistaken. A new image every 30 minutes seems to be the pattern.

We're actually up to no fewer than 4 distinct images now. Female-stick-figure has turned her head back, but it's a different image than the first two. Very strange...
Edit: The complete set so far, AFAIK.

It seems to be updating every half hour...

[edit] I'll just keep on adding these here.

I'm not sure what the URLs actually are... They look too long for most common hashing algorithms. I suspect they're just random noise, to deter bring able to find future images. Which means that reverse-engineering that first image will be impossible too, unless they loop eventually.

Great. Well first post, and my post is getting flagged as spam, so instead of a message detailing what's going on i'll have to narrate.

The image url is actually a url that redirects to another location. So right now it goes Time.png => another xkcd url => an actual image file on xkcd's CDN.

So Randal can programmatically change where the url redirects to, and that's how the image changes over time. I've been playing around with the command line on my mac and watching when things change, but i can't discern the pattern.

Every image so far has been stored on the wiki. Sometimes it switches back to one of the prior images, like it just did a few seconds ago.

Guys,

Imagine how long this could feasibly go on for. As someone on explainxkcd pointed out, 5 years from now, there very well could be a tree growing there. They're simple enough to draw. He could just do them whole batches at a time. Who knows?

I haven't seen it do that with my automated checker/downloader thing. I think if it ever does happen, it's just a result of caching at your end.

It strongly reminds me of a piece of music which will approximately take 639 years to perform. By now the first or second tune are played.

I may be another person reading too far into it, but the title and text seem to have a double meaning. There is the literal instructions that tell you the nature of the comic and the metaphor. Since the two people in the pictures have transitioned from sitting next to each other to holding hands it may be about, "waiting for the right time." Although, considering the struggles Randal has been through it may also be about simply having time together.
All conjecture on my part, though.

The hexadecimal portion of the file name appears to be 256-bits. If this is a conventional hashing algorithm, it could be (from Wikipedia's 'Cryptographic hash function' article):
  • GOST
  • HAVAL
  • PANAMA
  • RadioGatun
  • RIPEMD-256
  • SHA-256
  • SHA-3
Of them, SHA-256 would be the most common (and therefore the most likely) candidate.
Anyone feel like cracking a never-before-cracked hashing algorithm?

EDIT: Unless the hash is salted. In which case it's (even more) impossible.

Ignoring how exactly he's doing this, one thing I've noticed between the images is that the drawing style is slightly different each time, while the position has been relatively the same save for the third picture. Perhaps this is a recollection of how he's become better at drawing and developed his style as time has gone on? The third picture could be a representation of the time when he used that style there perhaps were hard times between the two of them. Thoughts?

Randal could draw one of these perhaps every 5 seconds - if he spent 12 hours total doing so, this would go on for 6 months.

OTOH, the comic is simple enough that the placement of heads, arms, and legs could be algorithmically generated. In which case, there could be an huge number of computer generated images spooling out at a half-hour clip, for years. That seems more like Randal's style.

With enough "frames" captured, perhaps someone can diff them and see how similar the parts are.

No scripts, though; the .png is actually .png...
...I was almost hoping it was a MIME-type gif, with .png extension. Just to throw people for a loop. :P But no, it's all server-side, so there's nothing we can do but guess hashes.

Speaking of which, anyone trying? It's likely time based, so it needs to evolve naturally. It's probably something simple, and it's probably sha 256 unless someone knows better.

Anybody collected all the hashes yet?

edit: Oh, and I tried looking at it through tor, current image is the same so it doesn't seem to be user-specific but global.

assuming only upper, lower, numbers, characters it is more than 5 characters long.

"wget --trust-server-names [image URL]" saves it with the hash as the filename. Got cron saving it every 5 minutes on my server... Have to use the filesystem timestamp to sort it properly, but...

EDIT: Well, it seems to be using the last modified time from the server on the local filesystem... Hrm...

EDIT2: I'm now using "wget --trust-server-names --no-use-server-timestamps -a log.txt [Image URL]" as my command.

Not using just epoch time with sha 256.
Using numbers and '/' ':' It is not within the first 9 characters.

Any other hot ideas?

It's not just updated every 1/2 hour or so. Try spamming F5, every time you reload, there's a chance to get a different *.png. Nice riddle so far.

Perhaps this is a recollection of how he's become better at drawing and developed his style as time has gone on? The third picture could be a representation of the time when he used that style there perhaps were hard times between the two of them. Thoughts?

Toast, being an inanimate object, obviously lacks both the ability and the desire to right itself.

Imagine how long this could feasibly go on for. As someone on explainxkcd pointed out, 5 years from now, there very well could be a tree growing there. They're simple enough to draw. He could just do them whole batches at a time. Who knows?


My guess is that it's all been drawn already, and that it loops every 24 hours, or perhaps every week.
