Re: 1190: "Time"

First, I wanted to express my thanks to GLR in a substantive way, so I dropped US$60 or so in the XKCD store. http://store.xkcd.com/ I hope lots of us are doing this! Second... some of the thoughts bouncing around in my cranium: I've always felt that the OTC and the OTT were entwined as a single ins...

Re: 1190: "Time"

I think I'm feeling a bit like the guy in the bathtub right after this scene: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-hX-xVzrbMg

Re: 1190: "Time"

Still has '...' as the alt-text. Hmm.

ETA: ninja'd? The posts are coming in fast and furious! (mostly furious?)

Re: Molpy molpy molpy...

De-lurking to tell a short tale of the potential impact of the OTT on the Outside: I've been reading the OTT since the beginning (although I have my own version of "intermittent schizoblitzing" - i.e., I occasionally resort to reading every 3rd page if I get too far behind). It seems that...

Re: 1190: "Time"

I'm interested in the background of some of your local "handles." 'Ardaglash' is a simplified 1.61803... version of the word "ardeaglais", which is Irish for 'cathedral'. Encapsulates my heritage, general spirituality, and of course engineering. :) 1.61803... "Simplified&qu...

No more need to wait, then.

Nothing spectacular?

I thought it was suitably post-modern! :)

Re: 1190: "Time"

Has anyone thought about what will happen when the OTC has more frames than XKCD has comics? (I've been skimming this needle-pulled-thing, but in no way have I read the whole shebang...) XKCD has 1206 comics as of yesterday; Aubronwood puts the OTC at 1041 pix. If that count is correct, and the curr...

Re: 1193: Externalities

A likely dumb question, but that hasn't stopped me before... I was Googling for info on the Time comic, and stumbled over this odd set of results: /search?q=There+were+some+surprise+overnight+upsets+in+the+hash+breaking A webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language. There were some surprise ove...

Re: 1190: "Time"

"Long time listener, first time caller"... I'm surprised that no one has yet brought up 'Waiting for Godot'. It was one of the first things I thought of when I saw the alt-text, and as Time has elapsed and this thread has passed through various stages of absurd, morbid, off-topic, lighthea...
