Re: 1190: "Time"

I feel awful for all those who aren't even online right now (yappobuiscuits etc) who are going to log on and just see that it ENDED? Why oh why GLR??? You could have kept it going for at least a year! If it hadn't been for the awesome power of the Android wallpaper I wouldn't have known until the m...

Well, as Beanish is proving tough to translate and there doesn't seem to be many characters, my money is on it being "taramasalata" :)

Or that she got the bus/cable-car run by "the others", whatever it was, there must have been a quicker solution (is a climbing montage allowed?)

Hehe, I had closed all the opening braces that I'd quoted (okay, I'd snuck them into a spoiler to be slightly evil) so in effect you've caused an inbalance the other way ! :-)

Good morning, fellow followers.

Re: 1190: "Time"

With all this newpixbot activity, perhaps it is gaining sentience? I do hope it winds up with a pro-human attitude. I'm not sure how kind it'll be as spamjam has 'teased' it for the last two newpix and the only time it gets to post is when other people are slacking. I can't say that it seems like a...

It may be way bigger than me, but based upon my experience with trees, I'm almost certainly much, much faster. and I have opposable thumbs. and a chainsaw. Thank you Dracomax for that line which is looking very sig-able. However, as a fellow chainsaw (ab)user (thankfully still with opposable thumbs...

Should I be taking better medication to stop the episodes?
I assume it must be quite serious as I don't remember them at all. I think I should be okay on the weekend as it was work colleagues who told me about them.

I'm looking for a single file that cycles through all the past frames. An animated GIF of all the images so far. I'm doing this for the wiki, so checking the wiki doesn't really help me much.

Re: 1190: "Time"

I have really specific needs. I actually need a single file, not a bunch of images chained together with javascript magic. Unfortunate that Primis seems to be down. So what you're asking for is a list of the image files? Maybe in a nice convenient tabular format and perhaps kept (fairly) up to date...

Anyone with any suggestions on what Cueball can't build any taller?
