*sighs* You do not understand how the Haberdashery of Arch-Cardinal BuffyGirl works.

- You request a Hat.
- You provide BuffyGirl with an idea upon which to build your Hat.
- She builds the Hat.
- You accept the Hat.

Buffygirl, may I be added to the hat queue? I believe I'm the only person from the first page of Time to still be active1 in this needle-pulled thing. I think that should make one hat-worthy. also my buffalo man would look so dapper in fancy bowler or derby hat.

I know you're busy so I had to improvise one. Feel free to make me another one: just take this, take the hair out (this is a really important step) and put the hat (preferentially a fedora, as it fits the fact I my avatar is bald).

What do you mean, busy?!?? I already made you one!!!

*BIG POUT*


Since I changed avatars, I mean.


That's the point, helloooo. the Arch Cardinal deigned to make you a hat... and you go and switch avatars! the gall!

I'd rather hear these words from the Arch-Cardinal herself, and not from anyone who thinks that may speak for her.

There is hair above your eye, therefore there is space for a hat.

I am deeply apologetic. I had not realized that such a transgression was so easily attainable nor so deeply incriminating. I would like to offer up my heartfelt remorse for having performed the heinous crime of attempting to finagle the system to my own ends, and humbly request the services of Arch-Cardinal Haberdasher Extraordinaire Buffygirl the Magnificent in conferring my bare, unornamented scalp with one of her luxurious pieces of cranial vestment. Realizing the err of my ways, I am providing her Magnificence with a full-resolution template of my avatar upon which she may work her haberdashermagickery at the following Universal Resource Location: link.

Humbly yours,

In this case I humbly apologize to you, Arch-Cardinal. However, it must be noticed that Change is the nature of Time itself, as we could witness in these almost nine hundred frames. It's it's own nature to change, slowly but surely, while it draws its plans against us. And so as Time itself changes, so does my avatar.

I'd rather classify my words under #2, "provide BuffyGirl with an idea upon which to build your Hat".
Also, I did accept your hat. Acceptance doesn't (legally binding) mean permanent use.
Also, you missed a character on my nickname.

Being an Arch-Cardinal of one of the Religions of Time, I thought you would give more significance to the text before that quote (and after the first quote).

I dunno, despite the melancholy tone this has taken, the last bit of dialog begs for a bit of action, if not adventure.

They're taking an initiative in scientific inquiry! When has that ever ended badly?

I definitely think they aren't leaving for good*, but I momentarily considered the idea that they're going to leave, and we'll be left here to watch the sea rise.

*or if they are, we're leaving with them

I'm not quite so sure about this anymore. My fear has grown. :(

So I was listening through my collection of EPs by the Mountain Goats and found this gem1 of a song.

Wait for You2
Spoiler:
When it came time to wait for you
I took the bus to Malibu
Found a cafe by the ocean
Watched the sky for signs
And a rainbow in the west
Wrapped its coils around the earth
Like a serpent
I felt like I was going to suffocate

And I knew this was not the day
You would finally come my way
But I waited all the same
Watched the water through the window
And a rainbow in the west
Held its head beneath the waves
And grew dimmer
Nothing anyone could do, I suppose

There are some very vague similarities; waiting, the ocean,a vaguely haunting theme, looking for signs. However, no serpents or rainbows or rainbows acting like serpents have made an appearance. *fingers crossed*
1I consider every song by the Mountain Goats to be a gem, but this one was particularly gem-worthy.
2 When I glanced at the title I honestly read it as Wait for it

A Timewaiter from the very beginning to the bitter end.1
1but not from beginning to end to beginning since I'm not a loopist

Dude/tte, you want a BuffyGirl hat, you ask for a BuffyGirl hat. You receive a BuffyGirl hat, don't ask for another. You receive a BuffyGirl Hat and throw it into the back of your closet, don't ask for another.

You want to design your own hat, then design your own hat . . . and accept the wrath of the BufferDashery, because Buffy is the Maker of All Hats.

I no longer care (not that I really ever did) what happens to the two main characters or their creations. They should build a raft, put out to sea, fall off the raft and be eaten by giant sea turtles. If this was all on a DVD that I had paid for, I'd be begging to trade it for the much more exciting Ishtar or Waterworld. I realize that most of you feel this is all a lot of fun but if your lives are such that this is fun, then maybe you should reevaluate your lives. Over 16,000 posts in over 400 pages? Real problems could have been solved w\ith that much time and effort.

You forgot to add "/rant".

I would say that you probably don't even believe yourself if you feel the need to announce your departure (or apathy). I would say to come back when you feel it interests you again. No harm staying or leaving. This is a special thread, but if you have some sort of life, I'm glad. Enjoy it. See you later. :) You'll still be welcome.


Thanks, Azule. I was thinking the same thing. If it's so boring, why not just log out? Why take the time to write that rant? Maybe trying to start a flame war, or live up to his avatar. Whatever, looks like he logged out, so that's fine. Nobody's forcing him to follow the thread. Or maybe someone is, and that's why he's so upset.


Hope no-one is forcing him, that wouldn't be nice... And Davidy, if you read this, good luck with your outsider life, even if you find that this tread should not be a part of it...

Davidy is probably Blitzgirl's sock puppet. That's the most likely thing I can think of.

She probably had her reasons. Perhaps it would have caused a critical mass of flag-ship, pulling all the castles together into a Black Pixel Hole, ripping a tear in the fabric of Time's space.

640: Megan looks in the box? Or at the box?
641: Megan is trailing a rope past the box, did she get it out of the box? Is it a toolbox? A box of ropes?
642: rope appears on the box
643: Cueball is using that rope to build more scaffolding
709: Cueball rests a plank on the box
717: Megan removes that plank as Cuedball rests the base of another plank against the box
720: That plank is now raised by cueball standing astride the box
798-801: LaPetite enters and does not interact with the box

So a box o ropes Maybe?

I don't think so. There is no real newpix showing ropes actually taken from box. Besides:

430: Megan brings ropes. Two newpix BEFORE she brings the box.
443: Megan brings another box, never to be seen again since.

The two boxes are different, one is carried with hands underneath, the other seems to have handles near the top. In the olden Frames there was mention of pouring something into the post holes from one of the boxes.

'We can't see you, so we don't know if you're starting to sink to the right.
Platform looks "unchanged" to me.

This is what you say:
jjjdavidson wrote:But that's a 128-byte hash (256 hex digits) and the file names are only 32-byte (64 digits). But then I thought, Would it be so un-Randallish to generate a 1024-bit hash and only use 256 bits? So I wrote a script to test the Externalites hash against the Time image folder, taking 64 hex digits at a time for the image name. 184 failures, then this, with the very last 64 digits of the hash.


And this is what I hear:
