Oh and ummm... : How many OTTish words have you added to your spell-checker dictionary? (or share any other anecdotes of how you've modified your toolchain to suit the needs of being an OTTer! )
Let's see, how did I do this before? *looks up* oh, yes, chronological.
On NP1468, I reached this:

When I realized how many classmates, relatives, former co-workers etc. saw me in that xkcd it kinda freaked me out (and I remembered how rarely I see a name in xkcd unless it's someone I already know about). But then I responded the way any geek would, adapting my website to handle the xkcd traffic, and a marathon session of learning PHP and SQL to put the RIES program online. And of course I made a T-shirt.
WHAT!? Did you put GLR in the comfy chair and throwed slightly stale M&Ms at him?
Thanks for my LOL for the dip, mikrit!
Now I look at this image and it looks kinda crude. It's the first manip of an OtherComic I ever did (1 yip before Time). Here it is again, hopefully a little less ambiguous:
I passed another of my Time-Capsules and one of my favorite retrOTTifications, Model Castle. I worked a long time on that one, learning how to use SketchBook Pro on the iPad, and developing several new techniques including a tool that makes a PNG transparent and another that uses one PNG as a "c**kie-cutter" to snip out a portion of another PNG. I still don't use any "real" editor like Photoshop, GIMP or Paint.NET.
More Present Stuff:
I've pretty much recovered from the S**ness, but I was feeling pretty ε for most of the mornix. During that first nopix or so after Cleveland was unleashed, I kept suspecting my use of Unicode U+200D. Of course it was a silly theory, and actually pretty funny. Thus, my OTTification of OtherComic 292 :
Some people think it's funny to label this place 'Cleveland'
A little more ketchup brought me this:

I'm sure most of you will know this one, but just in case...
Thanks, my squirpies and I needed those!

My bot nopixbot generates this report, which @BlitzGirl linked to a pricklymolp . It would be up to someone else to make it into a chart or graph.
And, ... hey, I'm ketched up! For now at least
P.S. New word mappings: otter → Duck, ottish → Duckish (partly postninja'd by Yappo, hi Yappo!)
Edits: As before, I'm using Stumbit as my Preview.
and the little status line in my signature got little ducks, changing from something like this:
