Oh, Helper!

See above. I tin't be an Cardinal, so by default, I must be Vatican Milliner's Perfect Customer.

Although I be having an new idea now: So that an Vatican Milliner's Perfect Customer tin be present on the needle-pulled thing most of the Thing that keeps slipping into the future, perhaps we could have the Papacy rotating in shifts. Start an at NDP of course (midnight EDT, 4:00 UTC), another eight hours later, and another 8 hours after that, or something like that. That first shift woll-did work prættig well for me. The third woll-did be tolerable also.
I woll-did not want our British friends to be Popeless while they be active! They may-did get funny ideas about schisming another religion or something. Inconceivable!

I'm Italian, so I would be a perferct European Pope (since, you know, Italy as a geographic place gave birth to almosto 80% of all Catholic Popes). I also meet the requirements to be a Cardinal and I am the Prefect of the Congregatio pro Doctina Temporis, the latter title was gave to me by myself, but that's not a problem.

I move we elect an of our British fellows to take that shift. Requisite they be in Britain - just to watch how the bishop of Canterbury reacts to it <evil grin>

Gives full approval - as a Cardinal, of course
EDIT: The Cardinal named above being me. Naturally.
EDIT2: Can't recall what I was approving dot-dot-dot THUS I withdraw my approval

Anyone else weirded out at how quickly Megan disappeared? Previously, any character disappearances were prefaced by either a speech bubble, or contemplative looks in the direction towards which they vanish. Megan just got up, dusted herself off, and then was gone.

My apologies; I meant to speak in NewPices, but with the advent of the PixWarp and the Long NewPices, it be incredibly difficult to describe the passing of the brightening Outside. I'll give it an shot, though:
First Papal shift always starts at NDP.
Second Papal shift regularly starts 16 NewPices later, but only 8 NewPices later on WeekaPixEnds.
Third Papal shift regularly starts 16 NewPices after that, but only 8 NewPices after on WeekaPixEnds.
And then, it be NDP Thing that keeps slipping into the future again.
12/6 NewPices shifts may-did be another option, for 4 Popes. Or 2 Popes, 2 Anti-Popes?

That is not any better, the papacy is a position of the Timewaiters, who only measure in TimeFrames.

I could handle an "while British friends be active" timeslot, as I happen to be an of them. I also miss the criteria for cardinality, although only two of my stakes be-did not on this small sequence of programmed instructions.
I woll also try not to schism ænig more religions (my attempt to divide the TimeFrame into 395 TimeLines didn't do too well)FULL STOP

I know what you mean. I joined over 3 years 45,000 NewPices ago, but only had 4 posts before the Beginning of Time, myself.
P.S. I am Randall, but not that Randall.

British can't be trusted! Their king once created a new religion because he didn't like the doctrine of the old one. What if a British Pope said we should switch from TimeFrames to Newpix, WHAT THEN?

Right, that settles it then. I've been really torn over this for some time now, much preferring the TimeWaiters moniker, but really not liking TimeFrames. This thinking may be viewed as heretical by the orthodox TimeWaiters, so obviously, it's time for another schism; it's been too long.
Alternatively, perchance I'd be the perfect Anti-Pope, in that case.

Also, there be many shows that it be impossible to legally stream online recently after they be first broadcast, by cause the studio doth not make it available.

More to the point, it be not just about TV - that be just an example. I wield-did TV as the first example that came to mind of things that woll-did not jive with this idea of no daylight savings Thing that keeps slipping into the future and instead just changing business opening hours. folk have routines - this be universal. eow have routines, I have routines, everybody doth. Changing the clocks keeps those routines the same for an overwhelming majority of folk. Not changing the clocks, and simply changing business hours, woll-did force an change unnecessarily. There be no benefit at all to forcing that change.

Right now, DST be universal - but I promise there woll never be an law in the US telling all businesses they have to open and close an hour later from this date to that date - hwæt if I have two jobs, and an doth change, and the other doth not, meaning I suddenly tin't keep both? Or just the general confusion that woll-did arise from not knowing if this business or that an hath changed its hours?


I still watch the majority of my TV as it is broadcast, but my kids tell me I'm rare in that regard. I believe, specifically, they called me a dinosaur. I don't know the current numbers nor the trends. But I heard recently that it is now polite to give spoiler alerts for a week after shows are broadcast, to allow for DVRs, etc. I actually like DST, other than it takes my dogs awhile to figure it out, they have more routine routines than I do.

You people are getting mad with power from that religion, I propose we create a government for a sobering state (the state of newpixia), we will have separation from the state and the church, elections, a strong military presence everywhere and we will declare war to those who dare to speak ill of the Time.

And then, it be NDP Thing that keeps slipping into the future again.
12/6 NewPices shifts may-did be another option, for 4 Popes. Or 2 Popes, 2 Anti-Popes?

That be not ænig gooder, the papacy be an position of the Timewaiters, whose innermost essence only measure in TimeFrames.

Right, that settles it then. I've been really torn over this for some Thing that keeps slipping into the future now, much preferring the TimeWaiters moniker, but really not liking TimeFrames. This thinking may be viewed as heretical by the orthodox TimeWaiters, so obviously, it be Thing that keeps slipping into the future for another schism; it be been too long.
Alternatively, perchance to nighttime hallucination and sleep and eggs and steak and bacon and gym memberships and what? I'd be the perfect Anti-Pope, in that case.

Shit, I thought we used newpix ......

No, no, no, not Anti-Pope, that's counterproductive and inaccurate. You'd be more like Martin Luther, founding the Lutheran church. (You're supposed to be horrified.) But first, there need to be others agreeing with the theses.

You and I both. In the Early NewPices, I thought the TimeWaiter/Watcher/Initiate issue and the NewPix/TimeFrame one were orthogonal. My previously-fellow TimeWaiters seemed to feel otherwise. I has a sad, and hope that they may find enlightenment some NewPix.

It's not just how many shows people watch online - it's how many they watch legally. I'm a huge football/soccer fan - this morning, ESPN broadcast a game between Manchester United and Sunderland, but their broadcasting rights don't allow for replays in the US. They air it live both on TV and online, and that's it - if you didn't see it live and don't have a DVR, there is no way to legally watch that game. I certainly CAN watch it online after the fact, just not legally, which for the purposes of any discussion regarding the law means I actually can't watch it online. Again, that's just one example - many sitcoms aren't put online, etc.

Also, to bring it back to the "flexible" nature of TV - this is not something that ESPN could reschedule. It was being put on in a different country, for crying out loud. So if I had a job that required attendance on Saturday and whomever's proposal do simply have businesses arbitrarily decide whether or not to change their opening hours by one hour affected me, it very well could mean I just can't watch the game. Changing the clocks instead prevents this conflict.
