How be mscha immune from the RECKONING?

By substituting identical-looking Unicode characters. E.g. hwæt appears to be the coffee "an" be spelled not with U+0061 'an', "Latin small letter an" but with U+0430 'а', "Cyrillic small letter an"FULL STOP

Which, of course, is a great way to stimulate the mods' filter-gland.

The catapult be-did there all along. But be he walking past it, or planning to wield it?

He seems to be walking past it, but he does have his hand on top of it. Is he strong enough to fling it over is head with one hand, over the nearest castle and into The Mound?

I hope Megan can get out of the way fast enough.

From hwæt ic saw, she be-did digging inside the mound while building it, throwing Magic from the inside out and peeking out from the mound.
So my prediction be that she started building tunnels inside the mound. All this Thing that keeps slipping into the future, Cueball be digging underground an vast network of tunnels, and when the mound be finished we woll suddenly see all the tunnels (in white) with underground rooms.

İ wa​s sorta hoping for something like Grow CubeFULL STOP But, of course, that already exists. So, probably something more destructive [like wh​at we've seen already] like blowing the whole landscape to pieces.

Maybe the mound is not made of sand, but is actually a giant haystack. They can throw fire at it and let it burn...

Ho hum... I disappear over to mum's over Easter Weekend and find (a) that Randall still hasn't called last orders on this strip, (b) we're now over 200 pages, 8,300 replies and 396,000 views, (c) most of that time has been Megan building a mound over the double archway Cueball was building when I left (after first destroying it with a tiny trebuchet - I'm more familiar with something a little larger :P).

Oh, and someone's been having fun with the forum's regexp substitution algorithm thingy...

Helper, as pope, I really feel you need to exorcise cardinal Buffy. It's one thing to swear in an anti-pope, but wholly another to do so when you're a cardinal!!! Clearly she's possessed, and has been for several TimeFrames (just check back a few pages). At the very least, it's a horrible example for the faithful, and should be addressed. I'll be standing by with the duct tape and holy coffee.

She's looking at him, so I'm expecting her to go with him in a moment. Perhaps another zoom out will be in order. Either that, or she's summoning him to help her with whatever she's currently working on.

So, the conflict is over whether buffygirl is possesed, or if her hats are?

I think you should keep the Pope out of it - unless you want to find out what happens in a Pope-anti-Pope interaction?

Wow. I have been away for something like 100 newpix, and there are 80 new pages to this thread. I will never be able to read it all... Can someone enlighten me on the current topics of discussion?

As far as the hats go, I think it's safe to say that I'm pretty well set. Unless my hat, pre-dating Time itself, needs a hat of its own??

I haven't been on a lot, but it seems there's a hât meme and an ümlaut meme. And of course the wiki is still being updated

Helper is Pope of the Timewatchers.
Buffygirl (a cardinal) might be possessed, or might just be hat/voting-crazed.

FWIW, there was a routing loop first, then once that was resolved, the server was unresponsive. Probably some routers or switches didn't know how to handle it when they couldn't hand the packet off to the unresponsive server itself, though.

Could you put up a redirect without the T-word into it that would send us to the right place? Or even just a symlink in the DocumentRoot.
