I tried a few of these. Here's an oilslick-like one, an emboss, the emboss with small differences boosted, and an emboss enhanced with a hue-mapping. (They're spoilered for seaishness.)ucim wrote:What makes an enhancement "fair"? If they help tease stuff out and are entertaining, all's fair in ch*rp and m*stard. (Doing an edge enhancement, like the oil slick mountain pictures, might be interesting.)
I am, however, loving All's fair in ch*rp and m*stard.
Heh, I'm glad that's as bad as it got.Link wrote:ggh wrote:↶
My brain had gotten seriously leaky by the time I posted last night - and by last night I mean 7:15 am. Replying was taking all the will I could muster and when I was trying to proofread, I just couldn't read. I do recall looking at my post and realizing that I had substituted the word "barnyard" for some other word in my post. I was way beyond typos. Barnyard. No idea....
Yes, I think it's you, Neil, ergman and Flado. Sigh. Sorry. And I'm sad to say this doesn't even make my top ten list of current correspondence fails via procrastination. Thanks for being so understanding!Link wrote:Well, I guess since I joined the OTT after T** **D, I have some Waiting to ketchup anyway. The longer the Wait, the greater the reward, I suppose. No worries! (Unless you did send mine and it just never arrived, in which case there is a postal service employee somewhere who deserves a good thwapping!)
Ha! Yes!taixzo wrote:ggh wrote:I like to think though that clean-edged stuff is signal though. Sometimes I try to clear away stuff in front of it that makes it harder to see, like in these:
Is is just me or does that look like a picture of Rosetta on top of the text?
That splodge was really bugging me before I realized that there was the sideways OCEAN. The hair is still a mystery to me. Maybe it really is the GLR giving a wink to that hair.
Do I see what I think I see? Who knows. But for me, I see all these marks as potential diacritics:azule wrote:First, thanks for the pigeon beanies. That was delightful to see.ggh wrote:Another thing that's interesting about that diacritic is that it's all over Rosetta's please-be-patient speech:
Is "please" a metaphor? I think that would be stretching it. Also, in lojban, please is pe'u, whilst the figurative marker is pe'a, but frankly, even I'm willing to chalk that up to coincidence. I do think that symbol in that newpix is supposed to be some kind of hint though. Ideas?
Maybe I am blind, but what diacritics are on the word "please". Which letter is it on, and which diacritic is it? Is it the dot? All I see are splotches.
But it's not that unusual a shape. It appears other places too. It could be just a mark. I'm starting to feel like "confirmation bias" is my middle name. ggcbh.
Edit: Oh, and there's also a larger one superimposed over that first one over the letter P.
ED, you keep surprising me with twists! And nice collarbones.
Bring a Beanie!
