As ye can spy wit' ye eye, our @Timborme
been a wee preoccupied. Arrr! But I guess th' c**kies be a slight improvement over all them Newpages 'o Message-"T▒▒ E▒▒" Stress Disorder. Some notes on recent happenin's in th' Present...@ggh
'n I been exchangin' Epilogue ideas by message in a bottle. I broke me own rules in 'tis message
, normally I try not to present ideas or theories that have almost certainly be discussed in th' hundreds 'o Newpages that I have yet to Blitz, but me set the sails on th' Replay viewer made me think 'bout it.
I'm glad ye all like me Replay Viewer. @AluisioASG
kindly provided a datafile 'n code that gunna allow me to add me own treasure chest 'o all 3101 known hashes, 'n extra efficiently. Thanks!

Splendid idea, but I'm reluctant to
- Advertise me own thin' (it looks like a conflict 'o interest)
- Brin' th' "Reddit effect" upon @mscha's server (as I haven't finished integratin' th' self-contained hash index)
Perhaps ye or another redditor could figure out which 'o th' thousands 'o threads in th' xkcd subreddit
'tis belongs in
'n definitely message it, if ye think it would be okay wit' @mscha

Oh, ye spotted me hidden agenda (exploitin' Finagle's/Murphey's/Sod's law to ensure that The Hour gunna
have a sequel...

Thanks, ye deserve it. That chapter
Alas, server 503 barnacles, a pair dips in a row. I be back to keepin' seven Newpages open at once.
azule wrote:Alright. Just to note, I think a cachin' system would reduce on-demand issues. ...
Yes, ye're right, 'n I don't remember now how I got ye idea (which was to spy wit' ye eye how much 'tis be happenin'
) mixed up wit' th' idea 'o settin' up an ЯOЯЯIM TTO
... Arrr! Th' main challenge to me regardin' th' quotes, be how to figure out which message be bein' quoted in a given quote. Regular expressions be not quite up to th' task.
balthasar__s wrote:'n do we be knowin' how First Mate Timborme, Nopixbot, 'n Imagebot look like?
I haven't actually resolved that, 'n th' icons I have used so far be just placeholders. I've just be usin' BlitzGirl's wee bots
(intended fer Sandcastle Builder) 'n generic smileys
fer First Mate Timborme
. I think First Mate Timborme would have his own avatar, kind 'o like some 'o th' other OTTer avatars. Th' bots look different, perhaps like some 'o th' Daniel Mróz drawin's fer Lem's Cyberiada
. Perhaps I'll get inspired someday 'n make wee GIFs fer them.
I encourage y'all to vote in th' OTTscars, whether or not ye voted in th' first round. I'm also plannin' to visit th' Present fer th' festivities

P.S. Th' Madness be approachin', or may have already hit. I be testin' some new translation modules fer th' GALLEON
that might help... or perhaps just makes thin's a wee madder. We'll spy wit' ye eye!
Retro-edit for Blitzers:
In anticipation of the upcoming Madness I was applying my own pirate filter software to modify my posts.
If you think the original text should
be added here (maybe in a spoiler) let me know!
Also, I updated my avatar to reflect the pirate theme:
Edit: Arrr! All th' URLs were chirped by me trusty parrot.
