I've done loads of those... I probably posted more by hand than by newpixbot.

ETA: Ah, didn't see the edit. So three newpix more? It'll be interesting to see what happens next. I hope for The Fade In to something else.

I didn't make a graph, but it's just simple extrapolation. Next one will probably be #e9e9e9 + 9 = #f2f2f2 (±1), then + 9 = #fbfbfb (±2), and after that, there's nowhere to go but #ffffff.

And then? Randall knows...

Ok, thanks for the calculation. I don't think it'll be the End Of Time, but as you say only The Great Randall knows...
I predict that the One True Comic will continue until the end of Time!

You did it BlitzGirl!

Just wanted to post a blackened version of the current frame, for old time's sake.
It's about time.

Quest progress: 438 out of 442 pages.
The Fading. NP 957.

Massive signpost passed: 425 out of 438 pages

For all intents and purposes, this is the final signpost of my Quest. From here onward, I post in the Now. It has been a strange and grand adventure through the past of the Thread of Time, and I feel I am a better person/poet/knight/etc. for having read it all. And for having met all of your past selves along the way, if only through pastposts and sigcouragement. Time may be fading, but the memories I've gained on my Quest surely won't - they are far too filled with Madness to ever forget!

There has been a spectrum of emotion over the shades of gray, and a flurry of activity surrounding LaPetite's brief reappearance and my silent sprint (and then my last signpost). Some worried for me:

Best of luck on your Quest, Vytron! You don't know me in your present, as my first signpost didn't appear until newpage 223. But in your future, by the time you reach this post, you should know: we are kindred spirits, you and I!

Thank you! And I concur. LaPetite is the Chekhov's gun of Time.

Almost certain? And I still don't think I'm LaPetite, as far as I know. Perhaps we are each others' long-lost sisters cruelly separated by Time?

Time for a sea¹ level update.
Time_sea_level_rise_20130429_1000.png
Time_sea_level_rise_20130429_1000.png (4.4 KiB) Viewed 9661 times

This is the sea level rise since just after the trebuchet pan (exactly one month ago, Outside reckoning). There was barely any sea level rise before then, so it's pretty much the sea level rise since the Beginning of Time.

Will the next tower fall while we can still see it? You'd think, but I wouldn't bet on it, since it's been defying gravity for quite a while already.

Welcome to the present BlitzGirl :D (It's OK that you skipped my RSA coded message to catch up with us in Time. It said "Hi BlitzGirl" if you are curious :) )

ETA: You should post the next newpix as well.

I'm glad I was wrong about you not making it. (Although, in fact, I wasn't wrong: “unless she forgot to update this in a while, ...”.)
I still believe you're LaPetite. But perhaps you're alternate universe versions of each other, which would explain that you don't know it.

I get #E9E9E9 downloading the PNG, but I'm probably doing things wrong...
I predict that the One True Comic will continue until the end of Time!

You did it BlitzGirl!

I have been Waiting since the first day, lurking in the shadows, dipping into this needle-pulled thingy, but without the time to dive in fully. When I learned of Blitzgirl's quest, I decided to Wait for her. I would not register or post until she had caught up with the flow of time. Now she has arrived, just in... well, you get the idea.

Welcome Blitzgirl!

Whether this fade is a fade out or a fade in, a good Time was had by all.

Presents? You mean...I get Present Presents? How exciting! :D

Oh, but first of all, I have some things in my pocketses, here:
*ruffles through vest's pockets*

◌ thyme
◌ a few stray gems from the past
◌ hugs and happiness
◌ piece of party cake in tupperware for jovialbard
Whistle of Temporal Harmony

I hope I got everything I was supposed to!

Hai BlitzGirl.
Please take these 3D (or are they 2.5D?) glasses and some popcorn, while we Wait for The End.
EDIT: Isn't that song really appropriate for us at this moment?

Ah, time to do that a third one last time:
SHEEPLE!

Also now that your here you can go back and re-do the first 77 pages which was from before you started documenting our lives for us properly. ;)

And then? Randall knows...

You know, that progression has been bugging me. Intervals of 7, 8, and then 9, but ending with an interval of 4? It just seems, well, sloppy from a man who would hand-draw a Hilbert map of IPv4 space.

Perhaps #FB was the highest off-white value at which he felt we'd still be able to see details. (Though at #E9 one of my graphics programs is already displaying pure white.)

As we appear to be approaching end times, I just wanted to say thanks on behalf of the multitudes of lurkers and infrequent posters here for the amazing journey that all you cardinals, popes, milliners, poets, colour analysts, graphists, pilgrims through time, etc have taken us on. I've been quietly lurking since the 2nd or 3rd newpic, and this has turned into something that none of us could have imagined.

I was blown away by the scale of Click and Drag when it came out, and never imagined I'd see anything like again. Well, I have. To quote that masterpiece:
From the stories
I expected the world to be sad.
And it was.
And I expected it to be wonderful.
And it was.
I just didn't expect it to be so BIG


I expected it to be beautiful.
And it was.
I expected it be brilliant.
And it was.
I just didn't expect it to be so BIG

And I didn't want it to end...

Now, just waiting for it.
I waited.

Almost entirely white on Chrome now, unless you look at the screen on an angle (not that how it looks on Chrome is particularly important). And congratulations Blitzgirl!

Soon all white, two newpix from now. I'm actually excited to see what will happen next... And too bad you didn't get to do the actuall -ONG BlitzGirl, but at least it was a BLITZONG :)

It's so light now I'm tilting my laptop screen to see it better...

Now my only problem is I have to coma soon and I don't know if their will be anything to wake up to afterwards.

And welcome from Down Under, Blitzgirl. As I said sometime in the past, you have made me think of "The Last Centurion" from Doctor Who, waiting through the centuries until he finally reaches the present. Welcome to now!
I waited.

There's something entering the frame on the left!

(This totally totally can't be it. It just can't be.)

Welcome BlitzGirl! You seem to have arrived in the Now just like the Great Prophet Zarquon arriving at the Restaurant at the End of the Universe, although that Restaurant does survive to serve patrons another day, soooooo.....

Don't worry, Latent 22 - even if Time fades out, this needle-pulled thing is awfully persistent. I have a feeling we'll still be here for you to wake up to!

And thank you everyone for such a warm welcome!! :D

Indeed, I missed that. Most certainly La Petite, BlitzGirl's evil twin from an alternate universe.
Of course, as some people (can't be bothered to look up who) have prophesied, she arrives just before Time is all faded out, so we'll never know what she's up to. :?

Is she bringing something? A trebuchet, maybe?

I don't know if she's my evil twin - she hasn't done anything particularly terrible...yet.
