I dunno - looks right for UTC to me: BST-1

Summer messes with time offsets

It seems it can be blamed partially to me not having set summer time in the user control panel and partially to the 'e' parameter (display time zone) in the custom date/time format which says "UTC" instead of "CET".
Fixed by setting my time zone to UTC, no summer time and date format "D d M Y H:i e", thanks for your remark :)

Isn't there some old wise tale that warns against climbing up a ladder with plan(c)ks in your hands?
I sort of think there should be.

In a daze post-coma. This is the most activity the fora has had during coma-time for me in hundreds of NPs... I felt like Blitzgirl for a moment, scrolling, reading, scrolling... laughing. Smiling a little. Scrolling. Looking up to notice the newpages were climbing. Starting to panic, reading faster. I don't know how she does it....

This was the first thing I thought... Pope Helper made it to NUMBER TWO still even though he hasn't been here in WEEKS (outside)?

Interesting that titles from the future future made it to her present-past before the true list of titles ever reached her. Such is the timewarply-ways possible via sigcouragement.

I have been waiting oh-so-patiently for Blitzgirl to hit the part of the fora where, if she were to CTRL+F her name, there'd be 100 instances on each newpage. The time where everyone talks about Blitzgirl. I see now, it has gotten worse better xD xD xD

If that flag on the far right falls into the semencoffeecancerbabies I wonder if M&C will attempt a rescue of it.

Having obtained the rank of POTN through the will of the people, I feel a new signature is in order...

While this
Knight Temporal Sir Vincent, Lord Of Nominal Goodness, Defender Of NewPix Glory1

1 aka Sir Vinnie LONGDONG


is still valid and appropriate, I'm beginning to think that advertizing one's membership in the Knights Temporal comes a little too close to actually doing something, and that is anathema to our Order's Doctrine.

Since offering it as a song-snippet several NewPages ago, I've had something churning in my head (once a DeadHead, always a DeadHead) -- it just seems the right song for the Time.

So for now and all Time everlasting1 I shall have the new signature below.


1 Or until I get tired of it and decide to change again...

If I had to pick one frame, i would go with 675.
It is filled with castles, scaffolding, rising water, both Megan and Cueball, and her hilarious stunt of falling out of the bucket elevator.
it has a little of everything that has led us to this point.

Second Favorite has to be 175, Megan doesn't like the taste of what is in her mouth and spits it out.

What I'm wondering is how I've managed to take third place for 'most posts in thread.'
I thought I really wasn't participating that much.
Also, it's interesting how few of the high ranking posters were members before Time started.

Catching up on some of the things I missed last coma, and while I'll restrain myself from commenting on all of them, this one caught my eye after cmyk's animated gif:

I think my life is now officially connected to this thread.


Yeh, that was weird. I thought we broke the forum for a sec. I noticed it was down just as soon as I finished those frame blends and finally came back online about 10 mins after.

Here's the motion blurred animated gif (frames 0-700)


Nice Job! Looks very amazing...Weeks of waiting in an instant...also weird.
I think it is still nice to think that future Generations will look at this comic in a gif form, probably not unlike yours, and will have absolutly no fucking clue how there can be a meaningful 300+ Page discussion about two people building a sandcastle.


Damn. There I was Pope for a whole NewPage, and I missed a change this important!! Now I'm going to have to do things very differently moving forward...

But I am curious. Just when exactly did this 300+ page discussion get meaningful?

Nah, the last page, if it exists, will truly be the most meaningful. If it doesn't, then the first page is. ETA: Hey, look, I'm being quoted in someone's sig!
