Ah, addams, you haver such a way with words. Here's hoping the storm doesn't take away your roads, electricity, or anything else.

In other news, uh-oh.

I need Javascript to see this. But it's only text and pictures. Also in some places the text doesn't fit the screen and it's not possible to scroll to see it.

This stuff should go in the README, really.

Ah, I've been verbed!

I didn't understand all of that presentation, but it looked very impressive.

Go, Gingercat, go! But beware the *ndishness.

ergman, that is a very dashing hat you came up with for addams! addams, I think you know how to make it your avatar, if you want to, but I can help if necessary. :)

I think todip is an important one for Eternal Density, so I hope it's all going mopishly.

ETF another autocorrect.

I also hid some other things that were lying around looking appropriately OTTish. There's lots of OTTish things I should have included that I didn't... sorry about that.

Yey!
I have a Hat!

Yes, JuneBug;
Yes. I'd like you to help me, again.

One of these fine days, we'll get that Hat out.
And; I'll wear it everywhere I go!

MY LITTLE ANTEPENGOAT: WINGISHNESS IS MAGIC

Postby mrob27 » Fri Mar 11, 2016 2:45 am UTC

My thoughts are with @Eternal Density, I wish for the best. CancerMustard is frightening, I've had it twice.

Some pre-Madness Image ketchup…

I have recently been reminded that early in this thread (apparently) there was a bug in the fora (long since fixed) that made it so that if you attached something and didn't include the {attachment} tag somewhere in your post, the file would be lost (it wouldn't be kept on the server after you submit your post). e.g. @ggh in OTT:424:33 says that this happened.
  I mention this now because it seems that later, e.g. by the time BlitzGirl started attaching things and redundantly duplicating it in a spoiler, it was thought that the "quoting the attachment doesn't show the image" problem was the reason to do it (see @BlitzGirl, OTT:634:5; her mention of Poland references the fact that in earlier posts she had been using the image hosting service vpx.pl, e.g. this image quoted in a post by @edo, OTT:368:38; but she switched because it was blocked at some interweb coffees at some MFFS mustardnets, see OTT:623:17).

Thanks for all the talk of molpigrades. They're definitely my favourite life form in the 10-4 to 10-3 metre distance scale.

And thanks for the wolpy story @addams!

Yeah... but what's he doing not-on-the-moon? There's no sound on the moon! He must be blitzing.... and I wonder if that's an early version of the Raft people's Crystal Organ.

I watched the other "making of" videos, and the finished song, and some other wintergatan videos.... very treeish. :)

I wondered the same when I watched it on Wednesdip!
I guess Bicycles are just common in that part of the world, or is Martin Molin related to Balthasar in some way? Very molpish and steakish regardless.

I've spent [probably too] much of my spare Time working out how to play it on piano, and recreating it in Caustic. It's still a work in progress, e.g. no bass or hi-hat.

Neat Cueganification, Sustainabilizer!
Need to get some more ketchup now; for the past two wips I've been busy renovating some inside parts of my Outside abode, and sadly haven't had time to Time.

I love my Hat.
But; I can't wear it.

Why; You can easily extrapolate from my photo:
No Thumbs.

well....In real life, I do have thumbs.
Some say, "All Thumbs."

I know you say you can't do <computery stuff> but, since I'm here and you're not, and you're there and I'm not, it's the best I can do.

The good news is, you can do it.

Do a dry run (just peeking) first, so you know what's coming. (Note - it's harder to do on a Mobile Organized Sand than it is to do on a real leopard, but is should work either way. The worst that can happen is raptors being let loose. That's not so bad, is it? :) )

computery stuff:
Spoiler:
The first step is to actually have the picture on your computer as a file. It's not enough that you can see the image - that image lives in lots of places. You need to give the image a home on your own computer (or "organized sand", to use the OTTish). To do this, go to the post with the image in it. The one with the hat. (Note - this works with any image displayed on your computer). Once you are actually looking at the image you want to invite into your organized sand (computer), you do the following:

--> real computery stuff! (works with most organized sands)
--> step one (Let me know if and where you get lost, and I'll walk you through.)
--> right-click (or right-mash) on the image. You should see a menu open up with some options.
--> left-click (or left-mash) on the option you want. In this case, it's the one that's closest to saying "save file" or "save image to your computer" or something like that. On my particular organized sand (OS), the correct selection is "save image as...".
--> You should then be presented with a box asking you where to give it a home. The file name should be already filled in. This is a little tricky to explain, so practice first without actually saving. You can do this with any image. If you double click on a folder, it will open (taking you "down" and letting you put the file INSIDE that folder). You can double click on folders that are already open... this takes up "up" and lets you put the file inside that folder. The simplest thing is to put it in "Desktop" or "Downloads". But wherever you put it, you'll do the same kind of thing to find it later.
--> Once you've selected (double clicked) on where you want it, click the [save] button, near the bottom of the box.

If you did this right, the file should be on your computer. Next, you'll send (a copy of) that file to xkcd and tell it it's your new avatar. To do that, you'll need to navigate to your account profile area. So, log into xkcd.com (if you aren't logged in already), and go to "User Control Panel". The link should be up at the top left somewhere.
--> real computery stuff (but should be more familiar)
---> step two (you can do it!)
--> Click that link, and in the resulting page, click the PROFILE tab. Tabs are along the top (usually).
--> Click the "edit avatar" thingy. (Thingys are on the left... usually).
--> You should see your existing avatar. Under it, you should see a [browse] button. There should be a label that says "upload from your machine".
==> (xkcd is not enlightened. They say "machine" when we all know it's really an "organized sand". :)
--> Click that button, and you should see a menu box that will let you navigate to your new icon's present home. It works similarly to the one you used to give it a home in the first place. Once you find the file, click it and then click the [open] button.
--> ("open" is really not a good word for it, but that's what we're stuck with.)
--> When you click "open", the box will go away, and you'll be back at the avatar display. There should be a button that either says "submit to forty lashes" or just "submit". If you see "submit to forty lashes", back slowly away from the computer. If you see "submit", click it.

One of several things will happen.
Either the world will end, with raptors crossing the streams and rectalinear assumptions being made left and right, or Donald Trump will be elected president (pretty much the same thing), or your avatar will have been uploaded.

In the latter case, Contratulations! You have done <computery stuff> and have a new avatar!.

In any of the other cases, simply follow the second commandment. (or is it the third?)

ONGs! Yay! Rejoice!

I'm looking at them on my MTA, so I can't make out much in the ENHANCED ONGd. Can someone with a larger screen make out anything of note? Does the wall seem to be complete?

And in the B&W ONGs, is that some sort of zipline? They'll slide down the log holding the rope, and it will shoot them out...somewhere?

Silly addams, you have the directions written down to put your hat on. And now you have more directions from Jose. But I can help you, maybe later this week.

I thought that was <computer people>. But there are a fair number of those in Northern CA so I guess it's RELATED.

Good luck in Sandcastle Builder @Gingercat (you'll need it…)

It's molpish to see @Rakhal summarising the latter parts of Time (and not so molpish to see xem nearing T** E** :shock:

Oh yeah, @ED, I looove that Gangnam Minecraft Style video :D

I think Randall's saying that there is no such thing as free software, because everything costs at least $1 to install. ( :D )

So... It has come to this.

Spoiler:
I've made it to NP2300.


I'm taking a short coffee break before I continue with my Blitz; there aren't even 150NPs left at this point.

It would be truly treeish to arrive in the Present somewhere on exactly NP2500, and with the current postrate, that may just happen... But we shall see.

ONWARD, CAT! ONWARD, HAT! ONWARD, ...uh, BOX! ( :!: Don't look in it :!: )

Baobabs, we might actually have someone finish a Blitz! It's been quite some TIme since that happened. ucim, I hope you're getting the ceremony ready.

Meanwhile, ice cream for rakhal:

I re-loaded balthasar's script for inserting images, but it doesn't seem to be doing anything. Wonder what I did wrong.

For extra redundancy, I've used this image before, which means it's on the server somewhere, but I didn't want to look it up so I added it again. I hope I don't break the fora with too much redundancy. I should probably use some image-hosting server.

I hope the Pope remembers how the ceremony goes. He's getting old, you know. :) Don't worry, First Cleric can help him through it. (Where is First Cleric anyway?)

So.... will Gingercat make it before the Beginning of Time? It would be the furthest-out Blitzdix to date, beating out karhell.

I'd like to remind folks of the Hallucinations of a Time Accessor story at http://timelessriver.net/stories/1/3/
I'd also like to remind myself to figure out when/why the CAPTCHA isn't working right.
ETA I think it's working fine, it was just a bit too difficult. I reduced it to just a title, with no randomly assembled name. The titles should be easier to get right for the names.
Just make sure you include the hyphen!
