I'd like to consider myself a heavy hitter, despite my post rate. I'm just always stuck in the past and I like to post responsibly. Now I'm getting hassled by the phone company for how I use the internet I pay for, so we'll see if that also effects my posting rate. I hope not. *hoping*


P.S. Congrats tman2nd.

Of course you are, and one especially appreciated by me.

Just awoke from coma so catching up... is it weird that I dreamed about the One True Comic, this needle-pulled-thing, and that Pope Helper had returned, and his returning post was first on a page, so making him simultaneously Pope and Pope for a Page ?

Or do you all dream about this?

Thank you, oh patriarchal one. I can't really let you take the blame, but well, since you offered, sure!

After all, we are told to "hurry up and wait (for it)."

Peace and the blessings of Time to you all.


Although in Time we don't have the "Hurry up" part, just the "Wait for it." But as we are all waiting, I would say there is indeed a kinship. Peace to you as well!

Probably the last American up here, just been catching up on the 7+ pages I missed today.

Unlike certain other users who I could mention (you know who you are), I actually read the day's newposts... It takes a certain amount of mentally unstable dedication to do so, but I do it anyway. Better than Outside entertainment, anyway.

As a parting note before I go off to coma (this is becoming a pattern, isn't it, me posting right before I coma), the latest additions make the top bit look sort of like some eastern asian temples...

Spoiler:

Maybe the design is sweeping eastwards across the globe? Maybe this is all a metaphor for how we view ourselves as civilized even if others were demonstrably more so hundreds of years before? Maybe we're all reading into this far too much*?

*That would NEVER be the case.

I'm still around. Been working late nights, which gives me good reason to avoid coma, as well as keep checking in when I feel like slacking.

Nope, I'm still up, here on Pacific time. It's pretty lonely at the moment, though better than it was about 20 minutes ago when it was just me a couple other users, and a couple of bots. Must be time to coma.

Anyway, got my first GONG. I'm happy.

Well, according to this graph, cmyk and Helper's posting habits don't line up, so I don't think they're the same.

Quest for the Sands of Time Part 2:

You have to wait 9 days for the weather to pass and the flood waters to recede before continuing on your Quest. About mid morning you come across a poor soul who got stuck in the mud and must have drowned in the rising flood waters. It seem someone has found him already and stripped anything valuable and left him propped up on four large bricks. You continue on your westward quest for two more days before coming to a deep chasm. Their is a rope bridge to the north but as you approach it find an old man with a bunch of viscous looking Dogs. They look like Rottweilers and you can count 13 of them. When you get within ear shot of the man he speaks up and in a very strange accent says: "Qba'g jbeel nobhg gur qbtf. Lbh pna pebff vs lbh jnag. Whfg qba'g jnyx onpxjneqf nf gurl ungr gung naq znl nggnpx!". You try to talk to him but he seems not to understand your speech either.

Do you ignore the 13 frothing dogs and wonder over the bridge

Or retreat slowly with your hands up and find another way across

Actually, my first post in this thread was in the first day, by most ways of reckoning it. It just wasn't quite within the first 20 hours 40 NewPices; just 3 NewPices too late to make that cut.

Ah - yes - I guess a 20 TimeFrame grouping was a bit arbitrary. 24 might have been more sensible...

I can see what you mean, but I'm not sure that it looks any more like that than any other castle-y building in a walled compound, especially given that it lacks the little bridge, and cantilevered tower, etc. And I've never bought any of the ideas that any particular sandcastle is supposed to be representative of something from the Outside.

Thoughts, anyone?


I can see what you mean, but I'm not sure that it looks any more like that than any other castle-y building in a walled compound, especially given that it lacks the little bridge, and cantilevered tower, etc. And I've never bought any of the ideas that any particular sandcastle is supposed to be representative of something from the Outside.


Indeed. It seems unlikely that they don't understand the sea (big!), don't know if there's more than one river (small!), but do have in-depth knowledge of Outside castles.

Huh. I was POTP last page under the old rules, and all I did was announce that I was going to coma. Ah well, you all escape my Papal tyranny. This time!

That's a mighty narrow sand bridge. Bets on how many TimeFrames it'll last before Cueball breaks it?
