Speaking of gardens, the OTT never stops to amaze me. In this case, GLR created something incredibly awesomeful, and just a few nopix later taixzo came up with an OTTification of it on the same level of awesomefulness. Steakish, Image!

ETA: Speaking of waveney, he is also a candidate for the Mystery Author.
Spoiler:
I'm almost sure that ChronosDragon is the author of or at least involved in the 3d story. Maybe he is the sole author of t-1. Maybe everything is by a yet unrevealed OTTer. I can also imagine that azule and/or BlitzGirl and/or waveney are involved in the 2d story. Or everyOTTer else.
In any case, whoever you are: Thanks a baobab for t-1! Image
It was awesomefully molpish to wait for it again!

In Time we have learned that Cuegan want to understand everything. Now we see that the same holds for Ms. Frizzle.
During this walk, Cueganzzle learn that they get along well with each other. This is the basis for a growing friendship which leads to the Beanies' invitation to the Cueganites to join them.

Postby lmjb1964 » Sat Apr 09, 2016 8:44 pm UTC

Epsilon, I'm seeing things. I could have sworn there was a post at the top of the page ahead of oldpixbot's popebot post, and I was wondering how that happened. But not I see there isn't one. I've got to stop drinking first thing in the mornip.lush

BlitzGirl wrote:Maybe the waterottermolpy has a lot of teeth...

Well, they do have a lot of teeth. Maybe dilgunnerpunsaws have a lot of fur? And dilgunnerpunsaws sounds dangerous, but waterottermolpies can be dangerous. Not so much to people, but abalone and crabs and even to other otters. So maybe the comparison is more apt than you realized./overanalyzing

Not sure how my interview went. It's in my same department, and i know the interview committee really well, and at least one of them was pulling for me to get the job. I just couldn't tell if I was saying what they wanted to hear. We'll see. At least my boss was out sick that dip. He was supposed to be on the interview committee, which would have been awkward in any case and especially since he's...ah, different, special, there are other words I could use...But thanks for th well wishes, everymolpy!

It occurs to me that making the quote-names into URLs prevents the users from being tagged in their notifications. Possibly the same is true whenever the quotee's names are modified in some way (color, italics, etc.) Can anyone verify this?

I come from page 353, where despite both characters being perched precariously on a possibly 2.5D platform and crennelating madly, many are saying that it is an uneventful time. Ye of little faith! Do ye not recall the frames where the dropping of an unobserved pixel caused an unholy dip and then an upsurging of speculation, as the boulder of your emotions was flung by the trebuchet of Time? Why can you (then-)now not be content to Wait for IT?

Oh, fair blitzer, lost in the wilds of the past. Here in the far-flung future we have now Waited past the passing of Time for over seven times Time. We wait now for an It we cannot comprehend. Ah! for the dips in which there was crenellation to watch with ever-glazing eyes, for the Times when one darkening pixel was the single minute change upon the newpix's ONG. I know not when you are, Amanita, but your passion lost amidst the pastpages sparks dear and patient memories.

ggh wrote:Last night I dreamt of new newpix. I don't remember much, but there were a few where we saw Cue in the sea. Cue was in the water, night/pre-dawn and motionless, but then daylight came, and he lifted his head and we could see that he was fine. It was quite dramatic and beautiful, because the tones were similar to the Long Night. Then in later pix, he was out of the water, but I can't remember what was happening. They looked like normal Time frames, except that I think there was shading on Cue's head, like how BlitzGirl and others sometimes draw him.

What a treeish comavision! I'd like to see new newpix like that (well, any newnewpix really, but those sound quite flutterbeewingghish.)

That was delicious ketchup, BlitzGirl! ggh was right, ketchup does age, like a fine cheese or that expensive alcohol ggh drinks. :)

Thanks for the well-wishes, addams. Thanks also for warning me there be spiders in those pictures. I did look at them, although in that sort of sideways way you do when you're watching a scary movie and you know a monster is going to jump out. But they were actually sorta kinda cute, as much as a hairy creature with way too many legs can be.

Meanwhile, in my Sand Garden, Megan was doing situps, but now that the Beanie has walked over to her, I'm not really sure what's going on. Maybe he's her personal trainer, and I should get my mind out of the gutter.

Yes, this is known. Xeio has updatedFaiD the script to move the link into the main body of the quote.

That said, the first thing I did after the migration was turn off notifications, so for some (most?) people it doesn't matter. I prefer the link where it is.

Postby mrob27 » Sun Apr 10, 2016 3:33 am UTC

I, too, am suitably baobabbed by the raptorcattish steakishness of @taixzo's sandgarden.

More Image somewhat out of sequence…

balthasar_s wrote:I don't really undersand what the gardens are doing. And how they work.
When I have the garden (xkcd or taixzo) open cpu usage goes to over 80%.
What kind of intensive calculation is it doing when it looks like nothing is happening?

Yeah, same here. There's no reason for it to be so inefficient. I tried them both for about an hour. Animation doesn't explain the CPU usage, because there are no objects to animate. The xkcd garden grew a rabtor (which doesn't sway as far as I could tell). @taixzo's garden made a beanie Image I gave up on both.

I might work some parenthesis-counting into the mr*bdex. The analysis by @Pikrass wasn't the only one, I think someone later did something that tries to count [these], <these>, and {these} types of brackets. I'm not sure what the belief is about those. In some hackish contexts (LISP), a single closing [square-bracket] serves to close all as-yet-unclosed (((parentheses))). So, one could do (((this] and it would be considered balanced. :twisted: For an extended example, see @macraw83, OTT:1053:12, which quotes shenanigans instigated by @mscha. (Similar parenthetical pranks were brought by @ChronosDragon, OTT:1804:5, and @Febrion, OTT:2137:23.)
  Then there's the question of what to do with ASCII art like the lovely sandcastle by @higgs-boson, OTT:1109:9:

I could not fix it because I was sleeping and my internet connection was turned off (But I could still see the responses somehow!). And it was getting worse because every reply to my post had "Re: " and bytes from that PNG in its subject so that the whole newpage started looking like a big set of random characters.

I wanted to wait until morning and hope that nothing worse will happen but then some mods appeared saying that this is too much and they will close the thread.

Timborme and I have fashioned new thwapsticks (I no longer use BlitzGirl's). One task every Pilgrim of Time must do on their path towards Blitzgirlhood is to build their own thwapstick. I also have the flame retardant and trollelagh I brought with me from NP1434.

Sounds like somemolpy could do a good business setting up a thwapstick shop back in the pastpages. I picture a profiteering Thwapstick Vendor, wares displayed in a ramshackle storefront somewhere south of Newpage 500, extolling the raptorcat-repelling qualities of their merchandise to passing blitzers on seaish journeys.

When I have the garden (xkcd or taixzo) open cpu usage goes to over 80%.
What kind of intensive calculation is it doing when it looks like nothing is happening?

Yeah, same here. There's no reason for it to be so inefficient. I tried them both for about an hour. Animation doesn't explain the CPU usage, because there are no objects to animate. The xkcd garden grew a rabtor (which doesn't sway as far as I could tell). @taixzo's garden made a beanie Image I gave up on both.


Well, animations do explain it, because it redraws the whole scene even if there are no moving objects. Some optimizations could definitely be done there, and were mainly a result of coding the whole thing quickly to get it done on the same day as the Othercomic. The reason for the animations was mainly for the swaying trees, but also for smoothness when dragging lights.

To help fix the performance problem for those with less-organized sand, I've added a toggle to disable the animation. When animations are disabled, CPU usage should be reduced by about 98% (it only draws a maximum of 2 times per second instead of 120, once to the actual frame and once to a hidden buffer). Note that you may want to turn animation back on when moving lights.

“To earn” means „verdienen“ in German, which translates back to “deserve”. By creating the ЯOЯЯIM TTO, BFTF, several movies, and more awesomeful things, balthasar_s has certainly deserved his first million. (And so have OTThers for OTTher achievements.)

I spent way too long grabbing bits and pieces from this huge unicode page. I was surprised that ᘇ was as close as I could find to the script-c thing, and a bit annoyed that while there were circle top and bottom halves, and four quadrants on that list, there were no left and right circle halves, which would have been better than the forward and backward Cs. But, now I can write stuff like ᒽ c̄ˀ cᘇ . Woohoo!

Sorry some of them aren't working on the Moon. As HES said, it's all the little i's without the dots. Maybe I can redo those bits with small Ls. I didn't want to have to rely on the size tag, because then you can't change the size of the whole thing.

Cueball's relationship status has changed to "It's Complicated."

I also eventually started running the xkcd garden on my desktop machine, where I found that another browser (I forget which one) actually can view the page without slowing the entire machine's UI. Go figure.

Relax. Take a seat and help us sell shrubberies to the turtles.


Thanks @ggh for picking up the proto-Beanish mystery. I suppose it would make sense to type it all in (there isn't much). I got curious, so I checked: the character "౹" that appears to some (including @balthasar_s) as a little rectangle containing the hex digits 0C79 is "Telugu fraction digit one for odd powers of four", and was added in 2008 as part of Unicode version 5.1. Presumably @balthasar_s can see all the others because they are included in some earlier version of Unicode. @HES suggested that it resembles the normal ASCII "|", which would be a good sbstitute for "౹" since they are of comparable height.
  @ggh instead substituted "၊", which is "Myanmar sign little section", character 104A, but which @ggh calls "dotless i". But Unicode actually contains a proper dotless i, "Latin small letter dotless i", which looks like "ı" and is character 0131. In a serif font it has serifs, which is a good reason to prefer the Myanmar character (though most of you are probably seeing this in the non-serif font anyway, because that's what the forums use by default.)

I prefer to use "ЯОЯЯІМ", rather than "ЯOЯЯIM", because the first one is all Cyrillic and is more likely to be treated as a single word (e.g. when using a regex, or with double-click to select a word, though that seems to work for me anyway).

To reposition the ladder.

Hey ED, what kind of mustard was that?



mrob27 wrote:Thanks @ggh for picking up the proto-Beanish mystery. I suppose it would make sense to type it all in (there isn't much). I got curious, so I checked: the character "౹" that appears to some (including @balthasar_s) as a little rectangle containing the hex digits 0C79 is "Telugu fraction digit one for odd powers of four", and was added in 2008 as part of Unicode version 5.1. Presumably @balthasar_s can see all the others because they are included in some earlier version of Unicode. @HES suggested that it resembles the normal ASCII "|", which would be a good sbstitute for "౹" since they are of comparable height.
  @ggh instead substituted "၊", which is "Myanmar sign little section", character 104A, but which @ggh calls "dotless i". But Unicode actually contains a proper dotless i, "Latin small letter dotless i", which looks like "ı" and is character 0131. In a serif font it has serifs, which is a good reason to prefer the Myanmar character (though most of you are probably seeing this in the non-serif font anyway, because that's what the forums use by default.)
  For exhaustive completeness, I ran the current set of symbols through my tool that displays them as individual bytes (UTF-8 encoding) and gives a weblink for each symbol:

Thanks for the code stuff. I was already kicking myself that I didn't write down which characters I was taking as I grabbed them.

You are right about me choosing the dotless i I did for its shortness and lack of serifs. I needed it to be distinct from the l and also it's good if it requires very little width; this language seems to run its letters together as much as possible - so much so, that I'm not even really sure the ᒽ isn't just a ˗ (I think it's different, but I stink at diphthongs).

Nope!

On my HFFSTA I can still see the first set that balthaunicode couldn't, but on the new one I can't see and (though the second may be redundant?). I think it all worked fine at home (A quick google suggests Burmese support was added in Windows 8, hence my W7-HFFSTA having trouble but my W10-MTA being fine).

You have some redundancy in your posts, HES.
