OTTer Map Speed Tests

Spoiler:
Summary
No CDN for you.

Details
Everything's been stuffed in the HTML [criteria: HTML load end]
JavaScript and CSS get their own files [criteria: JS load end]
Libraries are fetched from elsewhere [criteria: JS load end]
Tests made through a 56k connection (or so they say).

After the consequences of this are fully weighted, features will come.



Absence

Spoiler:
Reasons:
  1. Exams
  2. Post count milestone
  3. Preparations for World Cup and mid-year recess relocation
List not necessarily in order of priority.

I've got something to begin at my 1800th post, but I can't seem to wake up at the appropriate posting time. Such post is expected to occur either on next Onglessdix or Riverdix, pending exams timeline and relocation (time of day guaranteed by relocation transport schedule).



Decree

Spoiler:
First,

Code: Select all

$ sleep 60  # for DeadBeanie


Now,

It's pronounced CAVE, by the way.

Finally,
Imagine an OTTer-ruled world. Or region. Or island. Or oil rig.
How would it be like? How would life be like?

I got American Standard, Singaporean, or Canadian. Native Language English, Russian, or German. Really not sure where the Singaporean comes from, everything else I can at least come up with a plausible explanation.

Interesting quiz, I got English (UK), Scottish (UK) or Welsh (UK) dialect and Finnish, Portuguese or Spanish as native language. None of it is true (although it's fact that UK English is taught at schools here) but at least it's all in Europe. :)

Gee, it's hard to imagine an OTTer-ruled world - we're not so into structure and organization and standards. But if there was one somehow, the mutual support would be awesomeful.


I got 1. American (Standard) 2. Singaporean 3. Australian
with these guesses for my native language: 1. Dutch 2. English 3. German
Except for the Singaporean and Dutch, I guess that makes sense. I'm not sure how Australian grammar differs from NZ grammar.

My results were 1. American (Standard) 2. Singaporean and 3. I forgot.
It guessed my native language as 1. English, 2. Portuguese and 3. German.

Singaporean is of course way off, as is portuguese. But at least it got my native tongue right with the third guess.

I got American standard one before Canadian, so I'm clearly too close to the border for my own good. :P

I imagine anything ruled by OTTers would just be us issuing optional decrees to eachother. 'ruled' might be an exaggeration. Rules are like standards, which are ni ni ni ni etcetestrated.

My results were 1. Singaporean, 2. American (Standard), and 3. Australian.
Although it is mainly British English I learned at school, the results make sense regarding my current linguistical environment, since I live in Australia now, watch mostly American TV shows, and talk a lot to a friend who is from Singapore.

It guessed my native language as 1. Italian, 2. Finnish, and 3. something I forgot, but it was way off and definitely not German.

Just a quick note that

once again, for the longest time* ever.

As y'all know, http://imgs.xkcd.com/comics/time.png redirects to http://c.xkcd.com/redirect/comic/time, which in turn is supposed to redirect to the actual timeframe URL.
For over 24 nonopix and counting, http://c.xkcd.com/redirect/comic/time has been timing out.

Maybe this explains why the OTT seemed so slow the last dips... But it's still dragging on, even with Time coming to a (hopefully only temporary) halt. Yay us!
Let's keep a positive attitude: I postulate that this is the OTC's equivalent of the calm before the storm. Which can only mean one thing: Time II is nigh!

I think a coastal island and a riverish region near it would be the perfect size for an OTTer-run world :D There'd be publicly funded comfy chairs, and there would be a pun-tax - sort of like carbon offsets in that it doesn't actually improve the situation but you do have to pay for the trouble you cause - and frequent creOTTive festivals. People from other lands would come to learn from us, trolls would cease to trouble the world, and eventually all of humanity would be OTTish.

Then the asteroid would come, and despite the enormous intellectual and physical efforts put forth, the Straits would be dammed. Thus begins Time...

Maybe there's been a cluster of Singaporean speakers responding to the quiz as people passed the link around, would that give Singaporean more weight? The site blog does say that they need more responses in certain dialects:
If you are wondering why New Zealanders are off by themselves, that's mostly because we don't have very many of them, and the algorithm has difficulty classifying dialects for which there isn't much data. Same for Welsh English, South African English, and Black Vernacular English. So if you know people who speak any of those dialects...

Oh, in regards to the language quiz: it had this to say about me.

Best Guess: American Standard, Canadian, Australian
Native Language: English, Spanish, Portuguese

Which is interesting, because I don't speak Spanish or Portuguese. I do, however, parle le français. I guess they're pretty related.

I think there is very little difference between Australian and New Zealand grammar(I could be wrong). I also didn't see any answers/options that made me think "Oh that's something that I have heard only New Zealanders say".
I got 1. Canadian 2. American(Standard) 3. Australian. I think it failed to recognise Australian more because I didn't check the answers "She'll/he'll be right" when referring to certain object/things for some of the questions because although I think its acceptable grammar it was used incorrectly (in my opinion) in the examples given. Since that seemed to be the only thing that distinguishes the Australian grammar I think it only appeared in my list since my answers didn't identify any other location as likely.

FWIW, the "Now" OtherComic isn't loading for me, either. "Click and Drag" works, though. Which other interactive/dynamic OtherComics were there?
Wait on.

Baobabs, that's a blast from the past. I think that was my first ever musical contribution to the OTT.
OTTscars results Pt. 2 coming... eventually, but not from me. Seeking writer.

Nice hats! They really bring out your eyes.

Umwelt has content based on the user location (I believe it is serverside scripted)
Guest Week: Zach Weiner (SMBC) has some client side scripting to display the exhibits.
And of course all the 3d XKCD stuff has some scripted fancyness.
They all still seem to work.

Redundundant redundancy, included for redundant reasons of redundancy.

Looks like whatever it was just got removed from the time stream. Here's the difference between the frames you posted as they appear now:Image

It would certainly be awesomeful if GLR and SilentTimer (assuming they're not actually the same person) took turns; now that the Radiation saga is drawing to a close, it would make sense for GLR to take over again. Truth be told, I doubt Time II is actually coming, but it would be awesomeful if it were.

Probably just a long server hiccup, I doubt Randall would leave a whole comic page without an image. Who knows - maybe it is in preparation for Time II?

So I'm working on a small TCG for...reasons...and I think I need some discussion with someone who's actually played one. Does anyone here fit that description? PM me if you know anything about Trading Card Games.

I know that job postings for them have included things such as, "expertise with Nerf weaponry required." Does that count?

My black wolpies get called bears all the time. (lion, cow and horse have come up too.) Middle Sized Wolpy's name is supposed to mean Bear Princess.
We have orange safety vests for them for when we're where people might actually think they are bears.
Weird fact, where I live it is legal to own tigers, but not bears.
