Is it my complete lack of sanity or does that bear a resemblance to the Star Trek: TNG theme?

Not much? Cueball is starting a new tower! There have been a dozen or so frames we've needed sub pixel analysis to find the changes. Be thankful of what you have waited for and as the One True Comic demands, Wait for it.

Re: 1190: "Time"

Perhaps Randal is slows down the action at night to give people a chance to sleep. A few of the less exciting newpix coincided with night time. (sitting around time, cueball building, zoom time, and cueball building again) Yeah, it appears that my "watched pot" theory is debunked. Still, ...

Re: 1190: "Time"

Well, my GIF program has a delay, originally, it was set to '100' then upon a redditor's request I made it '10'. But that seems too fast. I've made a compromise at '45' now. Let me know if this isn't (fast/slow) enough: That's perfect. It's almost as if you channelled Lord Randall himself. The only...

Re: 1190: "Time"

Regarding finding the forums on the website: You can still find the forums if you go to the About link. There's a forum link on that page. I personally think Randall should switch out the Blag link with a link to the forums since he hasn't updated his blog since September of last year. Or the store...

Re: 1190: "Time"

I am disappointed that Randall apparently didn't make a realistic tide. It could have started out going slowly downwards turning and then being about to reach the castle when they left, rather than being completely immobile for the hours it must have taken them to build, and then suddenly starting ...

To get a towel. I'm still amazed at their unpreparedness. Who forgets their towel when they go to the beach? (Or when they travel through Time)

Alternatively, to get something to drink to wash out the taste of whatever liquid that is.

I rapidly scanned through the images using http://xkcd.aubronwood.com/ and I think it looks like the start of a pan up/left and zoom out revealing more of the beach.
