UNGlike in BSTA, the guy found some food.

For decree: Maybe there is no need to relocate non-chirping zombies and raptors because they have been relocated already.

For decree: Obviously the problem is that the zombies and raptors have lost their chirp. Once their ability to chirp has been restored, then they're up for relocation.

You see, this is why you have to keep an eye on your bots at all times. Here I thought lmjbot was just hanging out my kitchen counter, and meanwhile she's posting phys frames! Can't blame her, though, she was probably getting pretty bored.

As it turns out, at work today I was attempting to observe and photograph this raptor:

who was not ch*rping, when it inconveniently relocated itself to a telephone wire further away. So, sometime you just wait to see if the non-ch*rping ones will relocate themselves.

It is good to see lmjbot in action again! :D

Because reading her post title made me think that you are using lmjbot to do the dirty work (at RAZOR) for you.

I suspect that with all the supernatural romance novels these dips, there must be at least a few ch*rping zombies...

Non-chirping raptors could be hidden just about anywhere in the dark night sky.

Raptors in the sky are usually engaged in a process of constant relocation.

So, today, I wanted to see the newest phys frame. And post it.
I go to the viewer.
I see there is already an "Additional infomation".
Usually they appear a bit later after a new frame.
I check it.
There is already a link to the frame posted to the OTT.
Oh, someone was faster.
I follow the link.
And I see that the frame was posted by ...me?

Good that I already started reconstructing the punbike. I didn't write anything here.

Actually, I do like some puns.
Not all puns.
There are multiple kinds of puns.
These which are based on different meaning of the same words, without the need to change them to fit I like.

Treeish. I don't know if I missed them, but I do like reading through them when you qong them in here.

Thank you. :) I take it that they make enough sense to understand what I'm opining and why, then? That's the main reason I'm looking for readers, just to make sure I'm making any sense at all.

Today in "it's all RELATED", I've formed a new folk trio called the Mowdywarps. Mowdywarp is an old Cumbrian dialect word for "mole".

So our band name is an obscure slang term for a mole...

Gonna refer to us as The Molpies from now on.

They've made sense to me so far!

But then, I'm the kind of person who thinks the italic portion above makes perfect sense, so you might want to take that with a grain of sand.

Light speed measured!
By observing Jupiter and its moon!

But

"noticed a delay when the Earth was further away from Jupiter"

this
doesn't really tell me how it works.
A simplification?
What does it mean a delay here?
What is delayed?
And what is it delayed from?

I checked.
Wikipedia has a page about this.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R%C3%B8mer%27s_determination_of_the_speed_of_light
Go read it.
It is interesting.
The relevant part about what it means by "noticed a delay"::
The key phenomenon that Rømer observed was that the time elapsed between eclipses was not constant. Rather, it varied slightly at different times of year. Since he was fairly confident that the orbital period of Io was not actually changing, he deduced that this was an observational effect. The orbital paths of Earth and Jupiter being available to him, he noticed that periods in which Earth and Jupiter were moving away from each other always corresponded to a longer interval between eclipses. Conversely, the times when Earth and Jupiter were moving closer together were always accompanied by a decrease in the eclipse interval. This, Rømer reasoned, could be satisfactorily explained if light possessed a finite speed, which he went on to calculate.

Good luck, my blitzing friends!

A lot of valuable equipment.
You wonder what it is doing.

Huh, a tape drive. Eventually the reels have to stop turning the same way, unless there is actually no tape at all there, or it has broken...
Apart from Forum Games, mostly active on the One True Thread.
If you need help understanding what's going on there, the xkcd Time Wiki may be useful.

Addams thanks all of us who helped. Her life is much better now.

Unless the tapes are really going back and forth - 30 degrees forward, then 330 degrees backwards.

Or it's simply an endless tape.
Time. The final frontier. These are the voyages of Cueball and Megan. Its continuing mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no one has gone before.

Really?
Because reading her post title made me think that you are using lmjbot to do the dirty work (at RAZOR) for you.

I heard she's good at explosions:

Edited to fix typo. Somehow I wrote "yhet" instead of "that".

What? Haha, no, of course lmjbot isn't involved which RAZOR. That post title was just, uh, a joke. Yeah, that's it, ha ha. Nothing more.
(Note to self: Tell lmjbot her cover is blown.)

Non-chirping raptors could be hidden just about anywhere in the dark night sky.

Excellent molpy-hunting! You know, if you're good at spotting hard-to-see raptors, there may be a job for you in a certain government agency...

I had to go to my lapleopard to see the blinkenlights. It didn't seem to be happening on my MTA. Very treeish frame! And the chirping raptor is just a bonus.
