ED: count me as another successful movee to chirpingmustard. (Version 0.941) Even got the new address in my Favorite file and closed / reopened it in a new tab. Every thing works just fine.) I did notice I re-earned 3 badges ('Redundant Redundancy', 'Redundant' and 'Notified'). (FYI: Just in case that points to some mustard.) Are there any others I'll have re-earn? (Of course I could always re-open the old game and do a side-by-side comparison...)

O, and belated happy 1800 posts. Don't know how I forgot about that.

I played and got a 0 Score. I think I was at 1300 seconds or something. But I did solve it!

As far as I can tell, with scores we're all tied for first. I'll call it good if you solved it, and enjoyed it. (Actually, I'm happy if you just enjoy it, even if you don't solve it.)

I got a score of some sort: 126148! (and I enjoyed it - thanks SBN!)

Searching for the difference to the original othercomic, taixzo spent an hour... to find a single darkened pixel. So I suppose this ottercomic was actually kinda funny, but mainly because of metahumour.

And now, time to molpy down for me.

If you need help understanding what's going on there, the xkcd Time Wiki may be useful.

@Ebonite: Thanks for the Word Search game. I did get stuck on it after only about 20 or so names. For one thing I can't remember everyone's nickname right off the bat. (Happens to me in real life too. I can be talking to someone and suddenly forget their name even though I used it just minutes ago. [Once, when I was in 2nd or 3rd grade, I forgot an aunt's first name, And this was someone I'd seen every 3 weeks for years.])
And on top of not remembering the names themselves, I forget how to spell them too. (I actually have a list of OTTer nicks in my "Time" notepad, so I can copy and paste the proper spelling. So, if you see me misspelling a name, it's because I was "winging it".)
So, thank you for posting the list. Now I might have a chance on finding out the present shortly.

Here's another puzzle, this one using azule's OTColorization.
http://www.proprofs.com/games/jigsaw/colorized-time-frame-puzzle/

And I got a score on this one, so I apparently am really bad at my own slider puzzle, but oh well. I still consider it a win if it is fun, or if you can tell it won't be fun for you before getting frustrated.

Time to Molpy down.

Every time I try to have my ketchup, I seem to get distracted. It is like I have some kind of attention deficit dis...oh look! A squirpy!

ETA: @SBN So this is your fault! I did not realize that you had created this devilish sliding puzzle, I just saw a link and clicked it (links in the OTT are very much like spoilers: I shall have to click it if I see one).

Treeish OTTification. It's always fun to look at something from another's point of view, isn't it?
Thanks. :) Also what I was going for. :D

Treeish! 6856, though I'm not sure I understand the scoring system. I've tried this puzzle three Times and it doesn't seem very consistent (loading issues?).

Kind of empty around here. I think I'm hearing quiet ch*rps.

I'm still about BlitzGirl. I've going back over the last week trying to find things I've wanted to chime in on but was too brain-dead (work, the other four letter word) to form a coherent sentence.

@waveney and the Beany story: Thanks for writing that steakish story. And for the post about how you did it. Very, very good. Can't wait to see if you'll do another one.

And I missed another century post anniversary... patzer Congrats on your 300th, keep them coming.

@yappo: So I decided to give your "Nyan Cat" recording a try. Very good. Easier on the ears than the original. (I wonder how many people would recognize that if you threw it out at a concert?) But, while I was there, I saw another YouTube of yours: Huuto - Moonsorrow (Acoustic Cover). Let's see if I can find the best way to express this.

Yep. Something like that. (And in Finnish on top of every thing else. Wingish and seaish.)

Really nice OTTocolor! Was that done with electrons, or with watercolor?

I saw several "likes" about this one. But to answer your question ucim. It was done with electrons. (I actually used Paint.NET, GIMP and Photoshop Elements to get this. Each program contributed a different tool to the whole. I don't think I'll ever reproduce it, but I found out things about each program while on the journey.)

What's wrong with your eye? Recovering, I hope. *salud*

Doctor says it's past the optical correction phase. I should bump these font sizes and stop reading at night before I go completely blind.
(It's a congenital case, but some situations exhaust my functional eye noticeably quickly, like the word search.)

I'm sorry to hear about your eye troubles. I want to let you know I think I have a good understanding about what your going through. About three years ago I went blind in one eye and ended up having eye surgery three times in one year. (Two of them with-in a week of each other.) And then about a years after that a doofus at work tossed something at me at it hit my "bad" eye. So I understand the not being able to see and the pain that comes from eye-strain. Best wishes, sir.

And I see by my little preview SBN has posted another puzzle link.
And I've lost track of how many times I lost ninja stealth todip.
@ED: I like that the Options now show the "current status" of each one. I like the "notification log" too. And I just (todip) figured out that when you have the "Stats" window open, you can look at the individual stats for each tool by hovering. Neat. And I've wanted to say that for a couple of dips I thought the ONG clock was broken. Then I realized, "No dummy, it's showing the shortpix time."

Wow, lots of stuff going on this weekend. I hope I can remember all the things I wanted to say.
first off, thanks to people who said nice things to me. There are way too many of you, for some reason.
Yappo, I like your version of little bangs-boy better, but it might be weird having the same person voice two different characters.
yay, dilbert. good job past-Aluisio!
cool crosswords blitzgirl, and cool ottercomic, mikrit
also I added my old short story 'Inspiration' to the literature page, since it wasn't there.
that's all for now, folks!
molpy out.
I made my avatar, Buffygirl hatted it, Yappo smileyed it and ggh taroted it!
I've changed, witnessing this thing so beautiful

Good luck on blitzing, katakissa, username5243, musthavebeenmykarma, iskinner, thunk, GnomeAnne, and quantized ! Keep the signposts coming, we love em in the now!

I definitely have been enjoying these.

I don't know what "submitting" the scores does. . .I didn't see anyplace where the scores are posted so I don't know if submitting them means anything. In any case, the puzzles are definitely fun to do!

Treeish puzzle #4 BlitzGirl! But could there be a hint of heresy in 48 down? The answer is literally correct, but there is an implication that there could be others. No matter how treeish though, there is only One! :)

Also, 43 across... three possible answers, I'm pretty sure I know the one you're after though!

Descriptions vanishing slower was pretty easy to do, but links in the descriptions of Boosts (such as Double or Nothing) are not working at all. I can't figure out why. The onclick has the right value in it but it's not being clicked :(
*sigh*
ETA oh wait I remember what the problem is. Derp.

48-Down? Not sure which clue you are referring to... :?

As for 43-Across,

Yay!

Update Time!!!!

Code: Select all

### 0.942
- time delay before descriptions vanish
- links in boost descriptions work
- temp boosts with countdowns will continue updating without descriptions vanishing (until they finish)
- a new boost is finally working! (it may be very handy to some and has a neat easteregg)
- another new boost for those who molpy down
- and a completely new boost to help with ninja stealth when the pix grow long

About time too, those first two boosts were pretty much implemeted 2 dips ago. The final one is totally new a few minutes ago though. I thought of it this mornip when I accidentally lost my ninja stealth AGAIN
