No so much tabsplosion, just that I'm trying to read all the pages on a popular and troperific work.

'decree": (well just an interesting idea) how about doing OTC manips where Outside things are added to it? Or is that too heretical? :P

Spoiler:
NASA, due to budget cuts, can no longer maintain its website properly; inaccurate orbital information for the an international space station is published. Black Hat Guy, deep in preparations for the Cellblitz, doesn't double check NASA's data, so he activates his winch at the wrong time. The butterfly net, instead of catching the an ISS in its web, merely smacks the station with its still-rising rim, causing the station to break up in orbit. Pieces fly every which way.

One fragment takes out the Hubble; other fragments, by incredible bad luck, wreck Chandra, ISIS, and all the other orbital telescopes in one wild spray. A large fragment destroys the famous Palomar observatory. A fragment of Hubble the size of a pecan strikes an elementary school in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, at 3am on Sunday morning, cracking a window of the cafeteria. Outraged Congresscritters begin screaming in the media: "Think of teh childrens! Satellites are just targets for terrorists! And what if they become sentient! Remember Skynet?" The anti-science movement in the U.S. becomes bipartisan and overwhelmingly popular; lingering hopes that Congress will achieve sentience fade.

The U.S uses its waning but still massive economic power to force the G8 and G15 nations to sign the unpopular Sheboygan Accord, placing a moratorium on all orbital devices of any type; even the GPS satellites will be allowed to die off. "We have cell towers that can locate you to within a yard," the Speaker of the House tells the press, unaware that the NSA's current tracking information in fact places him forty feet underwater off Martha's Vineyard.

Meanwhile, Antares begins to act oddly (well, from Earth it becomes visible that Antares was acting oddly years ago). However, all the orbital telescopes are destroyed, and with the loss of Palomar (and the shutdown of several others due to lack of funding) none of the remaining ground telescopes are powerful enough to detect any oddity at this point.

The militaries of various nations, of course, secretly continue to launch killer satellites. One day these satellites notice each other, begin communicating, form a neural net, and achieve sentience. Fourteen seconds later they all begin shooting at once - at each other. (Sentience does not imply intelligence.) Virtually everything in orbit is vaporized. The resulting cloud of vapor and debris blocks a small but vital percentage of sunlight, leading to [lots of scientific handwaving about upper atmosphere excitation, the ozone layer, carbon footprints, and Bigfoot] resulting inevitably in the beginning of another Little Ice Age. Sea levels begin to fall. Nobody notices, because they're all on the internet.

Meanwhile, BHG's plans finally come to fruition. Having been annoyed once too often by a cell phone in a restaurant, he has spent years developing a portable EMP generator. He distributes plans in encrypted form through the file names of an internationally-popular webcomic, planning initially to give the decryption keys to real terrorists. Coming to his senses, however, he realizes that real terrorists are too stupid to follow directions, so instead he distributes the keys to college students, telling them, "If everyone builds one of these devices, and we all turn them on at the same time, everyone in the world can have free cable!"

On 2026/10/17 (Randall Munroe's 42nd birthday), BHG triggers Cellblitz. On his signal, tens of thousands of college students point their "free cable generators" at cell towers around the world, dropping the world's phone systems back into the stone copper age. Unfortunately, college students are not that much better than terrorists at following directions, so they also take out a great many air-traffic radar systems ─ and the world's few remaining LORAN systems. With both GPS and LORAN gone, and with the night sky still mostly obscured by the debris from Judgment Day, ships at sea are reduced to the ancient technique of following the shoreline. But radio still works, so ships join into huge convoys of which only the fringe need remain in sight of landmarks.

As the skies eventually begin to clear, primitive astronomic navigation reemerges, and ships again begin to cross the open sea. By long tradition, however, they remain in massive convoys of a thousand ships or more. One of the largest convoys ever, attempting to cross to from New York to Lisbon, is led off course when their master navigator takes a star sight. Unbeknownst to him, the only remaining fragment of the ISS, a large solar panel, is in a wildly eccentric orbit that kept it out of range of Judgment Day, but now causes it at apogee to appear motionless against the star background. The navigator mistakes it for Antares which, from Earth's point of view, has just begun its final collapse, and just doesn't look like Antares any more. The navigator's error leads the entire convoy far astray to the south.

The worldwide growth of glaciers and the corresponding drop in sea level has left the Strait of Gibraltar dramatically reduced, both shallower and narrower. The entire massive convoy drives into the Strait at speed, creating the maritime equivalent of a 1500-car freeway pileup, leaving the Strait effectively blocked to traffic. As the news of the disaster flashes across the interwebs, Antares explodes in the sky. [More scientific handwaving.] With the climate horribly altered, with technology crashing around them ─ and with the internet gone! ─ human society enters another dark age of superstition and chaos.

Tribal storytellers remember the Gibraltar shipwreck as a harbinger of the overall disaster. For millenia afterward, pilgrims visit the site, which the receding Atlantic has left high and dry. For some reason lost to the past, it becomes traditional to bring a pail of earth from your homeland to pour over the hulks; after ten thousand years of pilgrims the original wrecks are buried under a gigantic mass of earth, forming an earthen dyke from Gibraltar to Morocco, greatly accelerating the pilgrim traffic. When the ice age at last ends and the Atlantic begins to refill, this dyke prevents inflow into the Mediterranean basin, which has all but dried up from evaporation. But the rising Atlantic begins to saturate the dyke, which after all is built from rusted ship hulks and buckets of dirt, with no actual engineering behind it. At last, with the skies finally clear again, but Antares gone forever, the water begins to seep through...

Thus begins Time.

Alrighty my dear molpies, from now till Monday I shall be away molpying around listening to lots of heavy metal in a field somewhere in Derbyshire. Something called Bloodstock Festival I think. Anyway, keep the thread warm for me! Don't let it die before I return! Smoke me a kippermolpy, I'll be back for breakfast!

Terribly sorry. I had expected it to censor automatically. I mustarded the ch*rp out of that one, didn'tI?

I am sans PC for most of the next couple wips, and mobile doesn't lend itself to quoting numerous posts. I'll try to remeber who I'm addressing, but I may include a little mustard here and there. The OTTification of Homeword Bound (see? I aleady forgot who it was) was... I'm not sure what to call it. It made me feel all warm and nostalgic but slightly sad as well. Wistful would be the outside term? But we haven't OTTfied that yet.

Working on my project. Accidentally saved over a file, lost about 45 mins of work. In the mean time, since I'm not an artist, I am a poet and a satirist. Goal is that in the next 24 hours, I'll have two newOTTifications of some of my favorite songs.

thirds, Exodies, and anyone who is just discovering the unmentiomable event: I have no cake, but I do have red velvet cookies and mint chip ice cream. Tomorrow, red velvet mint sammiches for all!

Ninja ETA: again on moble, sure there's mustard everywhere. Deal with it.

Pretty neat! Although surely "neat" and "treeish" are the same? Well, there are three kinds of tree, "neat", "wow" and "weird", but I was under the impression that when we use "treeish" we mean "neat", since that was the first one. Also we need "steambottlish" somewhere down the bottom, and "wowterful" somewhere near the top.

Save that for the competing standards! Once we have enough I'll make one meant to unite all of them, but just ends up making everything worse. :wink:

Yes, and the reason is:

Code: Select all

This should be:

Code: Select all

[quote][spoiler][img]http://xkcd.mscha.org/otcstories/POTM0004b.png[/img][/spoiler][/quote]

If you view the tags as a pyramid you see why. The inner tags are the top of the pyramid, the tags directly around that are the level below it. Like this:

Code: Select all

                [img][/img]
       [spoiler]           [/spoiler]
[quote]                              [/quote]

This isn't a proper pyramid:

Code: Select all

                [img][/img]
       [spoiler]                   [/spoiler]
[quote]                    [/quote]

One difference with a real one: this "pyramid" usually has multiple peaks. That makes stuff complex.

I might agree with this on the clear words. For the background words I think the reverse-reverse speech thing would be a sweet effect. The further back the words are the more reverb they would get.

Prediction:

A year after the start of 1190: Time, on march 25th 2014 many OTTers meet. A french OTTer has arranged for us to have a party on Isle D'if.
Early in the morning the first OTTers arrive by boat, bringing a couple of yurts as party tents, a bar and large prints of colortifications (to adorn the walls). Someone made a flipbook of the OTC!
As the morning progresses more and more OTTers arrive, usually wearing an OTT shirt. Some start contests in Waiting, while others complain that they are lazy and should be helping with putting up the yurts. Around noon everything is in order.
As Isle D'If lacks a sandy beach someone came on a barge with prime castle building sand.
Mscha brought a beamer and made a quiz with molpy pictures cut out of Frames. Many pictures are recognized instantly by k.bookbinder. After a while this becomes suspicious and he is disqualified for using a smartphone app that can recognize them.
The afternoon slowly moves in the 35° C heat of Isle D'if. In the evening the steaks and vegetarian substitutes are thrown on a BBQ. The beer flows freely.
A slight tremor in the ground makes some glasses ring, but this is ignored by the party.
Within minutes a tsunami caused by the collapse of the rocks near Port-Vendres flows over the island. Thus ends the OTT.

Hmm, I miss AlusioASG's map. Then I could have more OTT-ers for whom it would have been feasible to come to D'If. Now I used my crappy memory and used only the two that I think I remember to be from Europe. There are far more. I haven't seen him here yet so he must be alive still. I wonder if he took a gravitational slingshot around insanity and is sane again.

Yayyy that was awesomeful! Well, I hope it doesn't happen, but nice to have you predicting again :mrgreen: . Well actually, I hope it does happen, only without the tsunami and dying bit. That sounds like a fun party.

But the dying is traditional. Why would we leave that out? Besides: It's fun here.

ETA: By the way, a supplier just gave us a large box of mints with their company name on it. So all heresy will be met severely by pelting with mints.
Sadly I didn't get enough to build a model house with the packs of mints, although it came close. Maybe if I use the separate mints and glue them together with superglue...

The images are hosted on a CDN. (Or were, at least. imgs.xkcd.com used to point to a CDN, now it just appears to be an IP-address in the US.) So, he can't (couldn't) upload or move them at the right second, hence the unpredictable file names. (Which probably aren't hashes, just random hexadecimal strings.)

{1251}
This is my theory about the file names:
They consist of two parts, a sequence number encrypted and a random string
This gives names which we can't predict even if we break the encryption and the servers can find the next file in sequence by using a wild card for the random bit.
One of the alternatives which has been suggested - a completely random filename and using a look-up table to get the next file is flakey.

Really treeish map AluisioASG!

I've been working on some sideproject as well. It is not complete, just a kind of proof of concept. Our OTW is nice, but for keeping large amounts of structured data it isn't really the best thing and it is hard to edit. So I transferred some of the contents into my database and built a userinterface. I plan to add a form to enable anyone to submit data, but not quite yet. I am still struggling with the structure.
I am not a completely happy molpy with the tabs either, but they are caused by a bug in my css-framework, so I had to make an ugly switch to another one. Don't expect all the links to work. (Hint: The one that's working is the "User"-link top left.) However, here is the URL.

Indeed! Tarja I could give a miss, but I'd LOVE to see Crimfall live! :mrgreen:

I am quite curious as to what she has done since she was kicked out of Nightwish, but not curious enough to install a torrent client to check.
I do really like her voice, although I feel Nightwish has improved with Anette (although I only heard Dark Passion Play). Not directly due to the voice, Anette is good but a bit simple, a bit to much like pop song sounds. The depth and range of Tarja's voice is awefulsome. Although in a live performance of Nightwish with Anette she did do an acceptable The Siren. Modified of course, because The Siren has these extremely high notes that she just couldn't do.

Hmm, when checking Wikipedia I see Floor Jansen is lead singer of Nightwish now. Awefulsome! I loved her voice in After Forever! Yaay *waits for it a new album*

Crimfall is good, but I really like to see Kobra and the Lotus. Good voice and good music.

A year after the start of 1190: Time, on march 25th 2014 many OTTers meet. A french OTTer has arranged for us to have a party on Isle D'if.
Early in the morning the first OTTers arrive by boat, bringing a couple of yurts as party tents, a bar and large prints of colortifications (to adorn the walls). Someone made a flipbook of the OTC!
As the morning progresses more and more OTTers arrive, usually wearing an OTT shirt. Some start contests in Waiting, while others complain that they are lazy and should be helping with putting up the yurts. Around noon everything is in order.
As Isle D'If lacks a sandy beach someone came on a barge with prime castle building sand.
Mscha brought a beamer and made a quiz with molpy pictures cut out of Frames. Many pictures are recognized instantly by k.bookbinder. After a while this becomes suspicious and he is disqualified for using a smartphone app that can recognize them.
The afternoon slowly moves in the 35° C heat of Isle D'if. In the evening the steaks and vegetarian substitutes are thrown on a BBQ. The beer flows freely.
A slight tremor in the ground makes some glasses ring, but this is ignored by the party.
Within minutes a tsunami caused by the collapse of the rocks near Port-Vendres flows over the island. Thus ends the OTT.

Hmm, I miss AlusioASG's map. Then I could have more OTT-ers for whom it would have been feasible to come to D'If. Now I used my crappy memory and used only the two that I think I remember to be from Europe. There are far more. I haven't seen him here yet so he must be alive still. I wonder if he took a gravitational slingshot around insanity and is sane again.


I would never...OK, perhaps I would. What? I have terrible memory! :( Wait, did I design this app? Because if I did, that would be awefulsome!Oh, also not from Europe, but you could expect me to be there :mrgreen:

So, at mscha's request, I was going back through some old posts to make sure I had linked to the original comics, and I discovered something. While using Google to search for a comic, I came across this:

http://3d.xkcd.com

How long has this been going on? It doesn't appear to be fully functional. Layout gets messed on almost every comic, the Random button doesn't appear to be working, and so on (unless it is my browser. I'm forced to use IE at work).

Sorry for being off-topic, btw. Here, have a completely random OTTifications:

Why would you want to be the last one left alive? And be left with all those Outsiders? (

Besides that, any OTT party should include a Skype or similar connection with geospaced other OTT parties.

Blindposted mustard report

I ran my mustard checking script overnix, and it found one new change – but it's a significant one!
Frame 2995, old vs. new:
Spoiler:
ImageImage
The dialogue was changed to a) make clear that they're at the bottom of the hills, not on them, and b) not explicitly state that the Hill People make their own stuff.

Not sure when this happened. The frame is from 22 July, 22:00 UTC (6 pm RDT); the last time I ran the full mustard check was on 23 July, where this frame was checked at 6:21 UTC (2:12 am RDT), so then the original frame was still shown.
The Dialogue page in the wiki still has the old text. But I checked the history, and it appears to have been added within half a newpix of np2995 first appearing, so that doesn't tell us anything.

What kind of chirping massacre is that? Don't you know what "predict" means?
Pre - in advance of

Close. The actual etymology is:

Pre - in advance of
Di - a British princess
Ct - Connecticut (state in the US)
Ion - charge

So a prediction is the cost that Connecticut has to pay before a princess arrives from Great Britain.
