Re: 1190: "Time"

I thought that the hashes were generated by javascript to fetch the image? If not, how is the image fetched, If you look at the source of the webpage, you will find ... <div id="comic"> <img src="http://imgs.xkcd.com/comics/time.png" title="..." alt="Time" />...

That means, you probably do it wrong:

But, maybe it is just too weak to be seen (i.e. too close to water) ?
Or wrong glasses 8-)

Why are the images hashed? As I understand it, they can't be downloaded from the server until the ONG anyway

Re: 1190: "Time"

I think we may need two editions of pieces. OK, so how about this list: Squirpy Raft Dildunnerang Beanie Flag Trebuchet Castle Bucket I like the idea of some rather mundane pieces, and some very special pieces. Players often want the fancier pieces, and not getting stuck with the more mundane ones ...
