It's been a treeish day. :)

Also, you're lucky, to be able to meet.
I can only dream how it would be to meet thunk or ggh.

In FFS mustardtimes people coming to me for help. What are they seeing in me?

They're obviously seeing someone who is acting like a big tree and knows how to do a lot of <computery stuff>. And is wicked smart. After all, you know how to run a moon base.

Almost by accident. I just don't like studying.

Though I wish I knew about this place when I was in Poland last. Drat.

And it's in your job title, isn't it? You're the Specjalist. Apparently the duties of a Specjalist include mustardbusting.

Or perhaps they heard about the man who made a certain device do things that it's own designers thought were impossible, and saw the lovely colour of your test reports, and are just inventing reasons to get to meet you.

I originally thought it said mustardblitzing when I read it.

Edited because of Autocorrupt corrupting my misreading.

Actually, they are not uploaded yet but they are ready so I allowed myself to increase the framecount.
The next timer should be decreased again.
I scanned a whole page but only made a part of it into frames. Some of the recently made frames require more effort and I became tired and left them for next time.

A little related to this but not much,
I was looking for one otherthing to use as a reference for making some of the new bstaframes.
I know what it is but I don't know what words to use to find it. I know one way of finding it but it requires going through very many pages.
So I tried words that I thought would make sense.
I was not prepared for what I found.

Looks like botm.info is back.
I called home and asked for help to bring the botcastle up again.
They did it and It didn't help.
Now it's 1 hour later and it works.

But it would be much better if you don't disturb him in this task.
Also, why stay here and watch the boring bikefix process when you can be somewhere else and do other things?
Now, when you are no longer limited to being this guy you can be anyone you want!

In a comically tragic turn of events, Addams didn't die. You can help her here.

Does the basement ever end?

Good luck to all the Blitzers out there!

A soldering iron, huh? :oops: That's one Blitzarus Annoyus that I'm not going to be able to explain in my blitz journal if and when I eventually Blitz to this page.

ucim wrote:Now, if only I could remember what all the pieces of all the avatars of all the OTTers looked like at all the Times!

You'd be making a lot of work for yourself, but ЯОЯЯІМ ТТО ƎНТ does have a record of past avatars.
  (Wow, there really are a lot. Oh, this one's particularly OTTish. @Asthanius, active for 10 dips in the very first Innocence, then molpied off to that dark and candy-strewn place.)

@ucim, I've added your findings to the wiki page. I'm really impressed, it seems that @ggh actually did all that stuff with the dark blue army and deliberately adding lots of non-OTT changes and so on.
  Of course we're at a disadvantage now that many avatars have changed and many things that are avatars wouldn't be recognised since the corresponding people are no longer active here.
  I've also worked out that all avatars, indeed all possible avatars, are present in @ggh's image, provided that they're scaled down to the sizes that @ggh was using and provided that we divide each avatar up into a hundred or so pieces.
  Oh and I found a wowtree! I actually found something, yay! Image

So, late last nip I was doing something and suddenly said, "Oh! I get it!" So, yeah, just super slow. About 15 minutes later I got online and saw a PM from mrob, kindly explaining the joke to me. :) Thanks, mrob! And yes, that avatar does look very different now. Kinda looks like he got caught, uh, mustardbusting. :)

Sonic screwdriver...
I've heard about it somewhere.
Where was it?
Ok, remember now. It was in Res Power, a mod which adds electronics (gates, 8bit cpus, and other cool stuff) to Minecraft.
But that's probably not where you know it from.
A meme I don't know?

Ok, I checked it.
It all makes sense now.
Of course you would be the one to mention it.
After all, OTTic mustardbusters are the standard equipment found on every Mustardis.

ETA: lmjb,
your post had two smileys.
You removed one of them.
Now there are three.
BSTA
Good luck, my blitzing friends!

Oops. Here's another smiley. :oops: Why do I keep confusing the edit and quote buttons?

Sorry for the doublepost, everyone! Well, redundancy is molpish, right? :roll:

They no longer have writings on them.
The worse confusion is when you edit instead of quoting.
This way I destroyed one of my blitzreports once.
But I could recreate it.

Always preview before submitting a post.
If you see a quote around everything you will know something is wrong.
This works for me.

I finally (mostly) learned to use preview when I meant to be quoting things. I guess I can (mostly) remember to use when I post anything.

Also, unyes?

mrob - thank you so much for adding those to the wiki page! I've been feeling a bit overwhelmed this past week. (It's not really justified - I'm not especially busy.)

There are a few that need small tweaks to be complete:
Spoiler:
these are references to specific OTTers:
  • otter C,8
  • MyFavoritePony Friendship is Magic U,4 (hint: not so much an OTTer (just stopped by for cake) but currently looks like Lucky)
  • baobab (wowtree) A,7
  • Latent22 (?) X,9-10 (this is someone else)

Also,
  • the other kittens (R-S,8) of this - gingercat S,7-8 (other kittens nearby) reference a specific OTTwork
  • the trebuchet was just a trebuchet (sadly, I couldn't really see into the future to GnomeAnne), and
  • those G,13 cupcakes belong, not to azule, but to another nearby, not-yet-listed OTTer

Also more frames are in the queue - yay! (11 added since 102)

Remember balthasar's avatar that looked like an elephant with a monocle on wheels?
Hold on, where was it?...

ETA: try here.
The explanation is in the spoiler, and if you click on that first link quoted by Sustainabilizer, the avatar is included at the bottom of that linked post.
ETA: I watched one of these fights once and was surprised what a brutal dude the Inspektor is. The relevant fight is in the second half of that video, and you'll get to hear balthasar speak (in Polish). I totally enjoyed it (with the aid of Google translate for the occasional chat comment), and kept meaning to watch the final round, but I still haven't (but the tab has been open in my browser... since [h] January [/h]) .
