Re: 1190: "Time"

Greetings all!!! I hope you OTTists have waited well since my last visit, and I'm very glad to be among you again! I have been gone far too long, and been much too busy lately, but I have managed to stay current on the OTC. However, I have to confess that I unfortunately have gaps in my OTT-complete...

Re: 1190: "Time"

You know, so far, this is looking as if it might be my first accurate prediction for the OTC: This will be great -- i think it will either be clearly identifiable constellations or a jumble of artistic-but unrealistic stars which will hopefully finally resolve the "real location or Randallverse...
