Thank you for the kind meowply thoughts. It's amazing how empty the house feels when they're gone. :(

We have two theories that explain everything? Do they explain what happened in bsta? :)

Hey, in case anyone is wondering, Time is finally working again. How much epilogue did we miss?

Just like that?
Wheelstick are very convincing, apparently.

It was momentary in the timeline in which the story is being told; I don't think I thought much about how much time it would be from the three wheelstickbots' points of view.

Hello Molpies and long time no see!

I have a favor to ask. My father passed away last night, and my family is having trouble with how to fill in the blank for "Industry" on the death certificate. We have mathematician for "Occupation." Some info:

He was a mathematical physicist.
He was a mathematics professor for decades, and also worked at NASA for a couple of summers. He spent a year on sabbatical working with Roger Penrose.
In the second half of his career, he worked for government contracting agencies working with the defense department. In particular, he worked on satellites and optics. Missile defense. SDI.

We can list two "industries" if we want ... I think he was most proud of his work at NASA (early) and his defense work (later).

Any ideas? Perhaps National Missile Defense or Academics/Missile Defense?

Thank you,
Buffygirl

PS (EDIT): He was a graduate student who helped to develop the Kerr-Schild Metric.

As for what industry your father worked on, depending on how legally binding the filling is, you should probably see a notary or equivalent about that. But since suggestions are free:

Wow, it's so molpish to see you, buffygirl, but I am so very sorry to hear about your father. Sending you hugs.

I had been meaning to mention you in a post, actually, because there's a drawing up above of a planet with a jat, and I was going to say that you were off hatting planets now. :)

If your father was a professor for decades, it seems like you would have to mention that. Maybe Academia/Defense?

This might help--my Google-fu turned up this:

Guidelines for Reporting Occupation and Industry on Death Certificates.

Sending good thoughts to you and yours.

ETA: I clearly did not do that URL right. I'll fix it when I'm not on my phone.
Edits 2 and 3: I think I finally got it right.

That puts you on a par with those listed in that Wikipedia article. Impressive.

Baobabs. As you can guess I know about the Kerr metric and its expression in Kerr-Schild coordinates. It's no light fare.

I'm sorry that I cannot really help here. I'm fighting a lot with German bureaucracy, but I don't know much about the US one.

That said, I like AluisioASG's (Hi!) suggestion to put things short and crisp. Maybe saying just “Space Research” and “National Defense” tells more about the greatness of his achievements than long descriptions.

Buffygirl! Welcome back! We miss you!

Hope you're not passing through like a comet, but coming back like a meteor. Well, not exactly like a meteor, but you know... sticking around. :)

I'm really sorry to hear about your loss. Please include me in the hugmolpies, for you and also the rest of your family. Losing a loved one is hard no matter how it happens, and it always happens differently. He seems to have been a pretty big tree though. As to your favor... I looked through JuneBug's discovery, and (as you indicated) it gives a lot of insight as to why they ask (and thus, what to answer). It was a surprise to me too, to see what they are looking for, and why.

It's wonderful to see you, even under these circumstances. The voldeframe is how we continue to experience how important a person really is to us, and it is necessary in order to transition to the new beginning that every ending represents. I hope your transition, poignant though it may be, leads to a molpish new perspective on who he was, and who he was to you.

Sorry for barging in like this, but I just realized that the OTC will be 1000 comics old around New Year's. Double party! I just realized I can't count: it'll be 900 comics old. Still, double party! Can an OTTologer give the exact date of the nonacentennium? And the millenium that will take place in less than a year?

Unrelatedly, what's happened to the post pace? Two pages ago it was August. Is my memory deceiving me or has the rate of new messages gone down significantly compared to two years ago?

Flumble! Hello hello! Wonderfully molpish to see you.

900 comics old? Baobabs, how the Time flies! We should definitely plan a millennium celebration. (I'm trying to think of a more accurate word than millennial, but can't come up with one.) I suggest an OTTer meetup.

Yes, the post rate has definitely slowed down, but it keeps plugging along. Every now and then there will be a little burst of activity, though.

ETA so it seems our bsta characters, and the building they're in, have somehow been transported to the moon base. How? And is there any connection with that and the game-in-a-game where the robot put the box into the Tardis-y thing, and the Tardis-y disappeared? Maybe it's ended up in the same place.

In the physics story, I think now that the hatted planet was just a buffygirl summons, which was very successful.

Edit 2 to remove my many typos from posting from a tiny screen, including change "hatred" to "hatted," even though I kind of like "hatred planet." :) Of course, I don't know why a hatred planet would be a summons for buffygirl. :|

1190: "Time": YOUR Q04B’S YAPPOCISED, AND YOU SHOULD *FEEL* YAPPOCISED!

Postby mrob27 » Fri Oct 05, 2018 1:43 pm UTC

There are 3 othercomics per wip; the current one is #2054, so #2090 would be 36 later, which is 12 wips, or the 28th December in outsider reckoning. To get to 2190 (which is 1190 + 1000) you'd have to go another 33 wips plus one more, meaning 3 dips more because you'd be skipping the weepend from a Davéandix to a Randix. You can look at a calendar and double-check but I think it comes out to the 19th August.

Edit: Of course, the OTA acts in mysterious ways, particularly around April Fools, so this prediction may be a little off. Or totally mustard.

Reading through that, it's more NoMouse's avatar. Mine is just me standing in front of a Texas shaped rock.

You know, I never noticed that, but sure enough, that's what it is. Also, hi, moody!

I thought it must be about time for a new bsta frame, but it's still 108 nopix away. :(

Whoops, I got them mixed up. I suppose they are both...primarily grey in color? No idea.

Hello from the basement. It's been a while. I've graduated university in the time since I have posted here and started a math PhD. It's been all right, but predictably hectic. And of course, my interests move on--even though ironically it took me three yips from the time I found Time to the time I started posting in the OTT.

That said, my thoughts to those facing the carnage near the Gulf of Mexico, and I hope Leslie doesn't stick around for another month and give the forecasters memories of 2005, which they already seem to be hinting at...

And in a perfect demonstration of the title text, M's track forecast 3 days out was off by 30 or so miles, but the intensity by 55-75 mph (whoops).

You were just Waiting For It.

The sea does what it wants. I hope it wants to be molpish. The wind.... now that's something we don't have much experience of in the OTC. Ch*rp!

This is the only instance of wind being mentioned that I could find (excluding Beanish, of course - who knows what they talk about all the Time...):

Hi, thunk! Good to see you. Congratulations on graduating and on starting your math PhD. I'm sure that has you doing lots of RUNning, and occasionally some Waiting for It as well.

It sounds like both the sea and the wind are doing what they want right now, and it's rather *ndish. Unlike in the OTC, it is definitely getting winder there. I wonder how SBN is doing? Although I think xe''s further south of where the storm made landfall. Not sure what other OTTers are over there. Sending molpish thoughts to all in the path of the storm. :(

In somewhat RELATED news, it looks like in bsta it will soon be time to PANIC!
