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 am sorry. I didn't feel it was a true spoiler, but I should have anticipated a different opinion.
Nonetheless: I edited my post, although I can not edit your memory for you.
Could you edit your post please, so that the traces of my misdeed will not damage other people's enjoyment?

Naw, it's not bad, for me at least; I generally don't mind spoilers much to begin with, and you didn't really give away anything other than that there exist overflow camps, like what role they might serve in what context. So, I exaggerated my reaction a bit. But yes, I'll spoiler my own now, for the sake of others.

Added: Would be nice if spoiler tags could take a label telling what they spoil, kind of like quotes can be attributed to their authors. Maybe I'll run that past the phpBB people.

Your one hundredth post

Congratulations.

I find a new page.
I look at this; quick, edit!
And follow tradition.

With this post, a thought:
I've posted a century past.
A new one begins.

Hats betrayed us, long ago.
Buffygirl owns all.

To wear a hat, do:
Ask Buffygirl for one. But!

Umm, wouldn't it be a bit hypocritical not to spoiler out the thing you asked him to spoiler out, also

NOTE: Genuine Spoilers from Genuine Movies (mostly well known but read at your own risk) Blitzgirl is hereby exempt from having to read all these spoilers for her own sake.

List of movies spoiled
Spoiler:
6th sense, Star Wars, Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back, 1408, Deep Red, Brazil, Beautiful Mind, Unbreakable, House of Wax(original release), Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Angel Heart, Twelve Monkeys, Friday the 13th, The Village, April Fool’s Day, The Prestige, Soylent Green, Jacob’s Ladder, Don’t Look Now, Fight club, The Others, Saw, The Usual suspects, The Lion King


Spoiler:
Bruce Willis was dead all along
Darth Vader is Luke's father
Mike's still in room 1408 Not the beach
Marta is the killer, not Carlo
Sam was just going crazy Tuttle didn't rescue him
his roommate, his pentagon contacts and the little girl are all figments of Nash's imagination
Elijah Price derailed the train at the beginning
The wax statues are the murder victims!
George and Martha Have no son!
Harry WAS Johnny all along!
Cole's recurring nightmare is him seeing his own death as a child!
The killer was mrs voorhees!
The village is in the 21st century all along1
All the deaths were just April Fool's jokes
Borden's trick relies on him having a Twin Brother!
Soylent Green is People
The whole film is a hallucianation of Jacob's dying mind
The red raincoated figure is a murdering Dwarf not his daughter's ghost!
Tyler Durden is the narrators split personality
Grace and the kids are the ghosts, the ghosts are the living residents
The "dead guy"s not dead and was Jigsaw from the beginning!
Verbal kint is keiser soze
Scar kills Mufassa


Edit: added note to excuse Blitzgirl the spoilers and also combined all spoilers into one to save space

And just in case people were wondering, yes they're real spoilers!

Also, what's this about hats? To paint!

EDIT: Fixed with new hat, turn out it's easier to edit stuff in powerpoint...

You guys sure did a lot of talking while I was coma'ing!

Firstly, I'd like to address buffygirl!
Seems like you had some hard times a few NewPages back! Hats that got thrown away and someone thought you wouldn't be able to place it on his head properly! :o
I for one am still very happy with my hat! I just had a small maintenance related question: Do I have to water my flowers? Wouldn't want them to dry out!
So some internets, kudos and an oven-fresh Croissant for you, Sweet buffygirl!
I never watched BSG, is it any good?

It also seems like we had a near-miss with a flamewar :o
Glad it was avoided! You guys are true Diplomats! *hat off*

But...
The OTC...
It's testing us!
A sad goodbye, followed by emptiness and Castle-decay, and not a little hope to cling on...
It really made me feel a bit gloomy :(

Even my Haiku's turned a shade of grey.

Spoiler:
More waiting ahead,
now the sea conquers the sand
which was left behind.

Luckilly, not for long!

Haikus are nice.
Especially in DarkTime,
I like poetry.


And also:

Confusing they are,
all these haikus. More so, if
write them, yoda did

It will all be allright, in the end, right?
Guys?
Right?

EDIT: Apparently, I lost the ability to count to 7 for a while there :s FTFM! Weird.

I'm just wondering if there are URL options we could use to get directly to the page with diff on and to the last frame, something like

Code: Select all

geekwagon.net/projects/xkcd1190/?diff&last

or

Code: Select all

geekwagon.net/projects/xkcd1190/?diff#last

Is this possible???

As for automating the posting of an hourly diff: I'll think about it, maybe this (Outside) weekend, if things are still subpixeling by then. Not sure how useful that is; might be better to keep posting a manually twerked (cut out and magnified) and analyzed version once in a while.

You are remembering that Blitzgirl has made it her Quest to read every single post? Of just the first few spoilers in your list, there were at least two or three that I didn't know.

Now, I'm an old fart, so that's not too surprising (I didn't even see Firefly until this year), but it's at least possible that Blitzgirl doesn't know some of these either.

Can we please agree, for Blitzgirl's sake, that her Quest does not obligate her to read all the spoilers?

And the hats make perfect sense. After all, buffygirl's signature has announced her "Pursuit of Hat Perfection" almost since the beginning of Time (or at least since Newpage 27).

ETA: ETAs, just to keep me honest.

Spoiler:
It bothers me when people refer to actors as if they were their characters. Bruce Willis is still alive. Okay, so I don't remember the name of his character that died, but while watching the movie I probably didn't know the name of the actor, since the character was never referred to as such (I only know it was Bruce Willis because people have been saying 'Bruce Willis was dead all along' a lot since that movie came out), so it just seems weird to claim that Bruce Willis was dead. Now it's just going to be awkward when Bruce Willis actually dies and people just say, 'So? He was dead all along.'

By the way, Bob Anderson, James Earl Jones, Sebastian Shaw, Jake Lloyd and Hayden Christensen were all Mark Hamill's fathers. In a galaxy far, far away, same-sex polyamory was the norm.

Ok......so, it's been a great many newpix since I last posted, and I honestly couldn't tell you if this idea has been suggested, but I just had a thought for the Loopists out there.

Suppose we zoom out yet again, and instead of seeing the river and whatever else is Beyond, the entire frame is inside a dream bubble hovering above Cueball and Megan, who have been napping on a beach. As the dream fades, Cueball gets up to stretch his legs and dips his foot in the water, returns to Megan, she begins to build a sandcastle like she did in the dream, Cueball helps her, and so on.....

I feel like this would be the only logical way to make it loop.

I like this idea!
It would be a great ending,
of the OTC.

I agree it would be a good Loopist ending, if a bit traditional. But I still think Randall has got something far stranger up his sleeve.

Guys. How can none of you notice that this frame is lighter <gray-scale> than any of the 894 that came before it?! Does that mean it's going to fade away? PANIC!! PANIC!

Snipped for space.. but the below is for Buffygirl:

Wait, what?
Quick! To the number-processors!
How much blackness have we lost? How long until it is all gone? Can we make graphs of this?
Are the loopists right? Will it all fade out, pan down to the original beach and then our heroes return?
Hey, is that a Javascript I see? sorry, but it has been a while since someone mentioned it!

For me, this "black" is still #000000, "white" still #ffffff. Check your monitor?

I checked the color
and was very much relieved,
to see no fading.

Woot! I have a nice hat too!
But oh Buffy, Maker of all hats, upon whose wrath I am now destined to suffer! I didn't make it, I just borrowed it from my aunitie...
The past is full of traps, charms and mirages, but if you just keep up with with what you are doing it will all be fine.
