(schizo-)Blitzreport from Beacon Gamma
I have reached @AluisioASG
's kindly-placed Beacon Gamma
, which has reminded me that I haven't done a normal Time-Capsule on my Blitzing progress since before I left through the auxiliary TARDIS
entrance to join y'alls for the Tymiversary. In the mrob
-aforewhen that was NP1438
, and NP1812 up here in the Present.
Time-Capsule from Mrob27
Deposited: NP1472 — Do not open until NP1858
The gang (Timborme
and the bots) seem to have been having a duckish time here on the TARDIS
, amazingly enough, has found a 2048 clone
which I might
have left running in the TARDIS
main control room.
. I'll describe what I've seen in the Newpages 1438-1472, leaving out the few bits I quoted in recent posts during the Tymiversary.
It was computed by extrapolation
that we would have more pages than Fluff
(which then still had its earlier turtle-related name) by now. That did not happen, and my post-rates
might show why: I am heading into a period of gradual slowing of the OTT that reverses in the late NP1600's.Sandcastle Builder
progress has been raptorish and steakish. chirpingmustard.com
has been chosen as a domain name. @ChronosDragon
begins to help with the clock icon and needed JS/HTML/CSS, then later starts to illustrate for game icons. (The newword hotdog
is still in my afterwhen, NP1527; sadly the mr*bdex generated by nopixbot
is not fancy enough to distinguish the modern sense of the word from earlier usages such as the manip of frame M2207
The past-aforewhen version of me has been leaving carefully dated Time-Capsules. By coincidence, my past self has started Blitzing the original RECKONING (Madness 2013) even as y'all began to experience Temporal Madness 2.0.@yappobiscuits marked
post with a wingish OTTification of Bilbo's speech from Lord of the Rings "A Long-expected Party", and a hilarious original song
. Soon after, with this list
I realized that he has much enough OTT music for a full-length album (note the list is not all
waterottermolpy, but its yapponess is predominent).
The Drawception trend is foreshadowed by this post
describing "The Game" essentially equivalent to telephone pictionary. A game is started within OTT post spoilers, and discussion ensues about how to match the game a little more to the forum-post format.
I love the partial OTTifications (Preamble
and Article I
) of the U.S. constitution. Of course, we have guiding documents of a sort, such as @BlitzGirl
's inspiring "grains of Sand(semencancercoffeebabies) in a Sandcastle"
of NP454 (which I'm hoping wlll win the OTTscar )@waveney
posted to explain the creation
of the Beany ONGs (the first series, not the more seaish MysteryONG series that will come later).
There have of course been many treeish Blitz reports, by Blitzers who were well ahead of the "dissoblitzer" past-mrob
.@lbjb1964 reminds me
that it's okay to be honest here, which is reassuring.@Kieryn
posts graphic visualizations of the OTC over time, with a black ink as a function of time
graph and a beautiful composite of all frames
. The latter strongly suggests
that Randall used horizontal guides to align the dialogue text.@svenman describes
a French car forum thread
that demonstrates many of the qualities of the OTT ("[a] subculture with its own customs, in-jokes, and specific jargon..."
) and 5267 pages of 40 posts each. It is growing roughly at a constant rate with 5387 pages now, having been started on Departure 16 in the yip 8 B.T. (Outsider date 2005-05-07). I grabbed a few cool smilies whilst I was there:
(only a couple of which describe me now or at any particular time
Hey it looks like the ducks are waking up and quacking to the Thread, so I guess I'd better ketchup!
(Edits: Of course it's NP1858 now
and the usual assortment of typ* mustard fixes, including late edit to fix "Timeborme", sorry bucko!)
