Ketchup: Not as Tasty as Newpix

Hear, hear! I'm ever impressed by the OTT's staying power. (Not really surprised of course since the founding commandment was "Wait for it.")

SBN wrote:Hey, here's a thought... Shouldn't there be a title for delurking? Revealer the Recent? (Of course, that's all of us, but I don't see the problem in that.)

Aha! So this is where that title came from. I'd figured it came from a span of my ketchup, and was impressed that it fit the OTTish culture so nicely. It is like unto a steak, SBN! A molpish continuing tradition.

BlitzGirl, This could have been a real spoiler where I told you a part of a time travel episode of SPN. I think you'd find it brililous, but I don't want to spoil it (and the best way of finding out is blitzing SPN). If you want me to spoil it ask me and thee shall receive.

Thanks for the non-spoiler spoiler! I want to blitz the show at some point. I remember liking the first season way back when but I wasn't able to stay current with it. Happy to hear there's steakish Time travel in there!

Good. A warning though: I watched the first 7 seasons in 6 weeks while working 40 hours a week. It was a major impact on my social life. There was not much else beyond Supernatural, working and sleeping. Now they have 11 seasons...

addams is so right! I want to complain follow the decree some more.

There's pages I want to ketchup, but I didn't write them down.

The Little Wonder asked for eggs again, and didn't eat them again. Will I ever learn?

Jose, hit, not one, but two huge milestones - 4000 posts and Chapter 50 of AotC - and I cannot find a decent cake. Everything is either not topical, or not awesomeful enough. Surely these ideas could have been combined:

OK, the cake-punsaw exchange had me :azuling:

And another blitzpost from me!. Now at 60% (1481/2467)

And it's been a puzzliferous era indeed. Which has done a power of no good to my blitzing speed. I keep stopping to solve the puzzles!
We had all those OSH's to do, hunting backwards and forwards through the OTC to find just the right Cueball, or Megan, or tree, or Rosetta, or molpy :)
And there were some fiendish riddles! (many of which I did not get :()
And then there were sudokus to do. One of which involved solving a bunch of other puzzles before you even got to the Sudoku :)
And then someone posted a link to a c**kie-clicker game....
... and then ED OTTified it and made Sandcastle Builder, a game I have spend FAR too much time on... :)
(SCB status: NP2451, Infinite: Sand, Castles, Glass Chips, Glass Blocks, Blackprints, Goats, Mustard, Flux Crystals. 23.32TW Logicats, 23.321 QQs, 200WWQ bonemeal, 412.646Y Maps, 22.615LW Vacuums, 65.646P Diamonds, 96.916T Gold, 102.881K Princesses, 42.181G Coal, 113.260Z Experience, wyverns everywhere, nothing to do now til I get to T** **D and start draining kittens :))
Someone attacked Blitzgirl on another thread, and she slew the troll with her accustomed wit and brilliance :)
Then everything started happening in your pants, and finally it was time for the Vitsagen!

Onwards ever onwards. Next stop 65%..

1190: Time: YOU CAN'T THWAP YOUR KIEPUDINK AND GOAT IT TOO

Postby mrob27 » Wed Apr 13, 2016 10:21 pm UTC

ggh wrote:Doh! What mrob is seeing is pretty unreadable. I thought I was saying: […]

I think you should stick with what you have. I'm a very rare case, and if I want to read some proto-Beanish I can turn off my stylesheet (now that I know what's going on, that's an easy fix).
  I was merely trying to point out that your serifed-dotless-i concern is moot because almost everyone is seeing a non-serif font, and therefore the dotless i, "ı" has no serifs anyway. I was led to think that you really do care about browsers that override the forum's sans-serif font with some serifed alternative.

Aha! So this is where that title came from. I'd figured it came from a span of my ketchup, and was impressed that it fit the OTTish culture so nicely.

In this case, as in many others, you could have consulted The OTTsford Molpish Dictionary. For each distinct sense (meaning) of a word or phrase, I almost always cite the first instance of that usage.
OMD wrote:Revealer the Recent : A title given to anyone who has been "lurking" for a while and "reveals" themselves by posting for the first time (see firstpost).
 Shouldn't there be a title for delurking? Revealer the Recent? (Of course, that's all of us, but I don't see the problem in that.) (@SBN, OTT:1528:18)
 @haircut74, Revealer the Recent! Awesomeful! Welcome :D (@Eternal Density, OTT:1727:22)
 rmcurtis - Welcome! Name is vaguely familiar; are you a Revealer the Recent, or am I a Forgetter the Frequent? (@ucim, OTT:1841:31)


After the all-important first usage citation, I try to find additional examples that:
  • clarify the meaning
  • establish broader adoption (i.e. I quote different people when possible)
  • expand the usage or meaning by being used in a different grammatical context
  • document continued use by being 100NP or more after the previous example

I've noticed some oddness lately with the links we get from the little "document icon". One might check these links (all point to valid, non-deleted posts):
All work as expected. But try these:
You'll find that most work as expected, except the middle one (the second by @BlitzGirl, i.e. the one that is now a goat, but formerly the mome of NP2000). It takes you to the top of NP2000 rather than (as it "should") the goat of 1999. The same sort of thing happens when clicking on that little tiny "document icon" on any goat.
  For example, right now you can look at the end of the previous page, and notice that the last post on the page is by @BlitzGirl, starting with the text "Ketchup: Not as Tasty as Newpix / Newpage 1528 and 1529". It's the goat of the page. Click the little "document icon" on that post (i.e. the little tiny rectangle just to the left of "by BlitzGirl" if your window is 701 pixels or wider, and otherwise is just to the left of "Wed Apr 13, 2016"), and it will take you to the top of the following page (i.e. the top of this page). But it shouldn't do that! It should just make it so that the window is scrolled down to a point such that the @BlitzGirl post is right at the top of the window.
  Due to this odd shenaniganism with goat links, I tend to believe that @Ebonite's missing post OTT:1235:0 is still in the xkcd botcastle somewhere, but is merely the victim of some internal server indexing m*stard.
  Of course, it's also possible that @Ebonite asked for it to be deleted… We are allowed to do that, after all.

I saw that mustard too! I was trying to update the link on the BG smiley in my sig to match the goated 1800 repository but it kept redirecting to the next newpage. I settled finally for linking to the post immediately above the repository since as the former goatpost it redirected to the proper place.

I can definitely believe there's some indexing mustard... our forasearch has still not been returned. For decree I'm complaining about that.

ScoopUNG:
I don't know if I've realized before (perhaps I did once but have forgotten that as well) that in this newpix Cueball is filling his bucket with either seawater or soupy wet sand. It's clear from the next two newpix that it's something more liquid than he has been filling the bucket with previously.

Happily, Ebonite's missing popepost seems to have returned and ungoated all the popes.
I'm not sure if the post just got re-indexed or if someone kindly intervened, but it's molpish news for the OTT.

Yeah, seaish thanks to davean, who by his join date has been forawrangling for at least a decade now!

I keep resetting my sandgarden because I like seeing what different configurations grow. Currently I have twin baobabs. Cuebegan, having constructed a sandcastle apiece, are now creating massive ladders in the hope of one dip reaching the tops of the baobabs.

Are we still complaining?
May I play? Spoilered because long.

It was a Dark and Stormy Night ....
Spoiler:
I was enjoying the Storm.
I was indulging in the pleasure of being warm and cozy and listening;

While on the other side of a thin piece of glass wind blew and rain poured in sheets.
The rain blew against the glass, it overflowed gutters and splashed onto walkways.

Lightning flashed, the thunder rattled dishes and windows.
I dozed off while listening to the Voice of the Storm.

It was all so very Peaceful.
(deep breath .. (sigh..))

...Maybe, the Storm was insulted,
because I was unimpressed.

The Storm got my attention.
It frightened me. AHH!

I woke up when I was plunged in the Stone Age.
No electricity! No power at my fingertips!

Yes. The roof and the windows held against the Storm.
I still had running water with functional indoor plumbing.

So; What's to complain?
No Internet! No You!

No Heat.
It was cold.

The men and women that do Real Work restored power to us Forest Dwellers.

Now; I can dose off listening to the rain, again.
Staying awake will not keep the electricity on.
Life is, just, an exchange of electrons; It is up to us to give it meaning.

We are all in The Gutter.
Some of us see The Gutter.
Some of us see The Stars.

Yes!
Yes! The xkcd Forum is allowing me to view and post with ease, again.

Will we be allowed to search with ease, again?
Someday? Maybe?

Or; Will search functions remain a thing of

Yes. I also think of balthasar's speech when I am unable to reach or interact with xkcd Forum.

Sense The Maddness, I have thought of it a lot.
It feels like You with the Forum are slipping away.

"Wait!
Take me with you!
I want to go with you!"


I look off into the Forest and wonder,
"Will balthasar send a bicycle back for me?"

I believe, if he could send a cyber bicycle then
he would send a cyber bicycle back for me.
Spoiler:
But; Only if he remembered to,
Would he remember me?
When there are so many other Time Posters....? (shrug)

Happily, Ebonite's missing popepost seems to have returned and ungoated all the popes.

Oh, hey! That was fast. I can confirm that the post is exactly the same as it was on 2013 Aug 27 (when I originally downloaded that page). I was going to try to see what happens when there's a goat and isn't yet a pope, but things have been dem*starded quite splendidly.
I'm not sure if the post just got re-indexed or if someone kindly intervened, but it's molpish news for the OTT.

I'll thank the mods. They don't get enough credit for all the m*stard they have to put up with.

Nice colourisation, @mscha!

I know, I'm sorry. Presently the list of hyperlinks to each letter (quick index) is at the bottom. My markup language doesn't have infile macros or some other rational way to do this, and I'm a bit loathe to copy-paste the text because I'm eventually going to split the dictionary across several pages, whereupon present links from here or other sites will break, and the quick index will then be at the bottom of each page, which pages will then be a lot shorter and quicker to load, just in case you're viewing it over mobile data connection, or otherwise feel this run-on sentence may have gone quite long enough.

Title spoofing is probably not a good idea. Lika as in, let's stop doing this… please?

RELATED to all of this: the migration thread, which includes that post by archangel davean that BG quoted, is well worth reading.

You are an unforgettable person and poster, addams. Image I'd remember you certainly, and I bet a lot of other people here would as well. I'm sure there's a cyberbicycle with your name on it.

If (and this is still a massive hypothetical if) the posters here on the Time thread decided to "move" the main conversation to another platform away from this forum, I'm sure there would be a huge effort to notify people who had posted here before, probably via private messages. Those would be our fleet of cyberbicycles.

Oh, I don't know if I mentioned this yet on the OTT, but we aren't the only subcommunity of xkcd forumites to have a backup in case of severe mustard. Apparently FaiDites have set up a forum offsite to use if things get all Zanclean here. It was mentioned over there amid discussion of the forum migration.

Complaining decreases overall molpishness.

Seriously, I love those non-complaints fulfilling the decree. :)
It's a molpish contrast to all those Outside complaints we have to deal with everynewpix.
