Greetings from the past, otters!
On page 12 there is a mild debate on whether a 2 pixel rise in the sea level was intentional or simply a shifting of the image. They know not what awaits them. For some reason I find it amusing that there's so much theorizing that Randall's wife was pregnant and this was how he was announcing it. I think it just amuses because of how private he is - it feels like he would've maybe made a comic once the baby was born, if anything, which wouldn't sit with the theme of the comic. Maybe that's just me, though - I know things the early waiters did not.

Not quite so long, but more updates a day than this waiter was probably expecting long-term, so it evens out, I think.
The dire interpretations from the Dark Period are continuing, though less intensely. I can understand that no one really had any ideas at this point but gosh, guys, sometimes a sandcastle is just a sandcastle! Then again, at this point, it does seem like it might be metaphorical rather than just a story. Still, I agree with the couple of people who are expressing discomfort at the idea of theorizing about Randall's actual life
, specifically in such negative ways (cancer, miscarriage, etc). Cool it on the conspiracy theories, past-people.
A 404 error for newpix 50 caused a mild panic. It went live approximately 14 minutes late.
Newpix 52, the first spoken words and Cueball's exit - we're officially in the Megan Period, and someone on Newpage 15 really sums up the feeling about this turn of events:

And with that I think I'm wrapping up for the time being - it IS Thanksgiving after all, even if I'm home alone with my puppies. I should indulge myself a little. Maybe with ice cream.
