ZoomanSP wrote:Hey, we have a goat decree! :D

That's a pretty molpish idea. I decree that Goats may decree if they wish, and {Mome/Pope}s may also, but if the Goat decreed something the Mome may feel free to not decree. Does that make sense?
  What I mean is that for any given page, either the top post or the last post of the previous page is eligible for decreeing. This might be just the thing for those who sometime would rather not post if they're going to be Mome, or (for different reasons perhaps) would rather not post if they're going to be Goat. It also means we can end up with two suggested decrees at any given Time, which might be good for the general REDUNDANCY and so on…

Yay, taixzo! The summoning worked!

Happy delurkiversary, Zooman.

I like the goat decree idea. More redundancy is always molpish.

The bftfs are so sweet right now! About how this community makes you want to create things. And figuring things out and waiting are definitely what we do best. :D

Loved the Castiliferous Eon song! :D "When a sandcastle needs scaffolding, it's probably too big." :azule:

Hi, adnapemit!

Loved the sign, karhell. Yes,it's always tough trying to explain OTTish humor on the Outside...

Feel better, ggh! Loved the decree following too, but why does that goat have a pipe tied to his head? :(

edited to fix typo I didn't notice till it was quoted...

This pipe is supposed to be a post. Decree was "DECREE: PUT FIRSTPOST ONG HEAD -- ongomome".

Why does lmjbot make a goatdecree?
lmjbot sees there are 40 posts on the page.
"my next post will be a mome post"
lmjbot makes an autogenerated decree.
lmjbot writes the post
"the last post is mine, I'll edit it instead of doubleposting"
lmjbot adds the new post to the old one.
The decree becomes a goat decree.

Ah, thanks, I hadn't actually figured out that it was supposed to be a post. But what I was really wondering was, why does the goat have a pipe tied to his horns in the first place? Unless ggh, despite her micromolpies, went out and tied a post to a goat's head to follow the decree. If so, wow, that's dedication!

I'm working on a hamburger. My site is "too complicated". So, I'm setting it up with Stupid "Easy" mode (where most of the features are hidden or disabled) and "Powerful" mode, where they are available. I can't think of a good name for an intermediate mode, so for now this is it.

Problem is, the scarier looking features (which allow others to help you) have to be in "Powerful" mode, where you don't need them.

Postby balthasar_s » Thu May 28, 2015 4:11 am UTC

the mrONGbdex story continues.

Code: Select all

  "What, those aren't treeish Timeodies?" protested Balthacarius.
  "Certainly not! I didn't build a machine to construct ridiculous acrostics! Any babbling bot with a randomised sequence generator can do that! Just give it a topic, any topic, as difficult as you like... but spare us the absurd constraints on vocabulary or plot specifics!"
  Balthacarius asked for a chair, then sat and thought. Finally he smiled, nodded to Mrorl (who hesitantly switched the Bard back on, and nodded in return when it had warmed up a bit), and said:
  "Very well. Write me an Odeity, a Timeless poem of Time: an ottpoem of Cueganshipping, Sarcasm, Geology, and Language. With feeling, and a bittersweet e****, if need be, but in the true OTTish spirit."
  "Cueganshipping and Geology? Have you finally given over to the Green Safety Hats?" Mrorl began, but stopped, for his OTTronic Bard was already declaiming:
      <*:Cue, let us journey to a higher plain,
      Where Lucky prowls the grapey fields of vine,
      Whilst crumbling castles fall to rising brine,
      Tho by what cause? We're wont to ascertain.:>
        <*:Tho rivers' oft retreats are commonplace
        We wonder what odd law the sea obeys
        It's held no level higher than today's

IIRC, the owner had duct taped the pipe/post on the goat's head to stop it from getting its head stuck in the fence. It does look like a pipe... but since I was image searching for post on head, I didn't really notice.

Heh - apparently, that goat is not alone:

Quite so. What I'm doing is RELATED, though, in the sense that it involves a lot of Waiting for it ("it", in this case, usually being vacuum systems or chemical processes). Unfortunately, Waiting isn't nearly as molpish if you have to do it in very many successive short (<100 mNP) bursts, in a cleanroom under harsh yellow light.

Different problem. She seems better this morning though, so perhaps all the molpish thoughts (and thoughtfully translated chant) helped.

On a scale of Sandcastle to Epilogue, she's probably at Civilization, so there's that. She's waited well, but I don't know how much more waiting there is for her.

Such is life. Best you can do is make sure the remaining Timeframes are as molpish as possible (but I guess you already know that). Molpish thoughts all around.

I Hope you'll find something suitable in a timely manner, Neil.

For now I am happy that my government will pay me 70% of my old wages. It gives me time to study for the job I want to do.

t1i – Radioactive Recovery

*** STARTING THOUGHT TRANSMISSION FROM THE PAST ***

May 2014. April 13291.

You are a Beanish engineer.
Your comrades are asking you to build a tool to recover a corpse from a cave.


Why not just go in and fetch it?

Image If you enter the cave you pick up an illness which causes a slow, but certain death.
We have no idea why, but we suspect that the dust inside the cave has something to do with it.


What about wearing masks and gloves to protect you from the dust?
And cleaning your clothes after the operation?

I'm not sure that this will be enough. Maybe there's more than just the dust. I only know that two of us went into the cave for a short time and died. I stood in front of the entrance for some longer time and survived. But you're right: When we pull something out of the cave, some dust will come with it. Then it will be a good idea to wear masks and gloves.

You can use a fishing rod.

We can only stand on a small ledge and won't have the space to operate it precisely enough.
What kind of machine can you build to recover a corpse from a hazard area?
Spoiler:
Hmm… let's see …
We can use rope to build a crane.

Image

The anchor would have to be fixed at the opposite wall.
Can you throw it there?

I'm afraid we can't. Even if we had a master thrower among us, there's just nothing where the anchor can gain hold. As far as I could see from the entrance, the roof seems to consist of very smooth rock.

Then what about something like this?

Image

That's a nice toy, but it won't be strong enough
to pull a human corpse over a floor covered with debris.


OK, let's try something more sophisticated.

Image

You can power this robot by turning these cranks. Over this bendable chain of belts you can move the wheels and other parts of its “body”. We can even attach arms if you see a use for them.

That looks nice, but I'm afraid it's too sophisticated. Remember, if something goes wrong we cannot go in and repair it. We need something as robust as possible. Keep it simple.

Hmm…

*A moment of silence passes while the engineer is contemplating.*

The problem with a fishing rod is its length. You have to support its weight and to wind a loop dangling from the far end around a corpse lying on the floor – while standing on a narrow ledge. If we find a way to support the weight in the middle – a wheel, for example – this can be your pivot point for precise movements of the far end.

So the device is standing on its wheel, I'm holding it upright. I can move it forward and backward, and I can turn it to the sides, Image

Image

Sounds reasonable. But what if there is no way to the target the wheel can pass over?

We can make the rod extensible. You push the machine inside on the wheel as far as possible. From that point on you extend the forward part until you reach the target. This will even work in case the wheel gets stuck.

Excellent.
Now we need a mechanism to twine the rope around the target.


Hmm…

*Another moment of silence passes while the engineer is contemplating.*

We can guide the rope through two eyes attached to a second wheel, a horizontal one, at the front end. We use some gears and an extensible axle to connect it to a crank at the aft end, so you can turn it from there.

Image
(click on image for seaish version)

Another crank is for extending and retracting the rod.

Image

(Image The extensible axle ends in a sprocket which rotates the horizontal wheel. The cranks and the ropes are not drawn in this resolution. Instead, the device is rotated in high resolution, scaled down, darkened, and then the cranks and ropes are drawn to fit the scene.)

(Image When the device is lying flat on the floor, only the front wheel is visible.)

Image

(Image Now comes the evil part. Something must happen which turns the device inoperable. This event must block the wheel and the extending mechanism at the same time.)

(Image The device rolls over a stone. On the far side of the stone, the wheel falls down on a barrel, which gives way. At the same time the front part of the rod hits another stone and bends – just a little, but fusing the axles.)

Image
I like your tool. I'm confident that it will serve its purpose. Thank you! Image

I am repeatedly awed by the amount of detail and research that has gone into the t1is. Yes, "SilentTimerish" is the right word for taking burnt steak up to eleven.
