Wow, 504 mustard causing duplicates everywhere! I managed to delete one of mine, but there's still one duplicate left which doesn't have a delete button... maybe we need to get a mod in here to clear them up for us... This redundancy is not so molpish...

CLEANUP ON NP1676! Mods may need to clean up the redundancy. Or...is that a bad precedence to start?

Great job, Dracomax and slinches, on your versions!

Oh, Time cocooned before Time flew,
the water and the sand you.
We'll do what we're about to do,
we'll find out things we never knew
Oh, move the stars and move us too,
The water and the sand and you.
Nice one. I especially liked the bolded lyrics. The second one sounded a bit like a Kermit the Frog lyric. :)

I don't know what that would mean, but looking forward to it. I agree on the issues with a Time 2 thread. Any consensus on what to do? I think it will get it's own thread based on forum rules, but should we migrate there, should we stay away from that redundathread?

Don't feel bad, Earthling, no one ever did my unofficial OSH either.

5 more posts of mine left. What shall I do. Oh yeah, finish. :(

Not quite ketched up, but I will soon be boarding that big iron raptor, and won't remembe what I wanted to respond to. My phone sucks, so there.may be mustard in this post. Speaking of mustard, I got a Chicago-style hot dog for dinner, despite the fact that it has mustard but no ketchup.

Let'ds see, Yay! addams, marchllight and angelastic stopped by! Glad to see ED posted again.. And there were some fun otties : After Time Delight, I heard the ONGS, that one angelastic did. Cute wolpy pics, slinches. And other stuff I e already forgotten.

The voldeframe is a bit of a bummer, just cause i thought it would go somewhere else. We already went through this! But it may still, so I shall, you know.

I think this.post is a bit disjointed, sorry! You're all awesome. Merry happy holidips!

A steel raptor at the very least. Especially if it travels on grapevines, you don't want those to be brittle.

As for disjointed posts, well.

OTTmas has really snuck up on me, I had so many plans for ottifications. Maybe I'll do some tomorrow between wrapping. I disassembled my lapleopard tidip, and successfully demustarded it so it's actually usable again.

Newpixbot must be telling us to be on guard...the epilogue sequence of ABCDE matched the last five panpix perfectly, but this new ONG actually matches epilogue oldpix C... and I don't think ABCDEC is part of any of the four known epilogue cycles.

The ch*rp you aren't! You are very much a citizen of Time. Remember the Most Holy Prayer of BlitzGirl: ...As grains of Sand(semencancercoffeebabies) in a Sandcastle, this needle-pulled thing works best when we are not all of the same shape. Our quirks clasp us together all the more strongly, so that when we Wait for it together - whatever Time we may travel, whatever sect we may splinter, whatever graph or song or hat we share - we are not alone. For though Time may scatter us among the pastposts and the Present, in the end, it is also what brought us to this mad, mad, glorious home in the first place.

Time would not be the same without you. It is not the end, for there is Time after Time, and there is Time after Time after Time, and it will be thus for a hundred years, and for a hundred centuries.

And after that, it will keep on continuing.

Just a bit of ketchup too... so much 503 (and now 504) mustard it requires ketchup! I'll probably miss stuff because I'm relying on my memory (and memory is the second thing to go!), but a belated "Molpy! Grapevine!" to Scissitor! Great to see you back. And great to see the new data! And speaking of new data, where is Kieryn? I've been enjoying his otherothercomics, but miss him here! And a welcome to OrbitalFacePalm9001... (I wonder whatever happened to HAL9000... hmmm.... Better check the basement!

Welcome back to slinches too! Looking forward to your wolpy pix! And marchlight too! Welcome back!

Molpish! But are you sure that you didn't also raise a computer network with that same conditioning? Maybe that's why we're getting 503s - the network is speaking Beanish instead of TCP-IP. :)

Eternal Density, I noticed your message too, but there was so much mustard that even when I could get through, I couldn't always get through. Happy BB8(hex)! (And yappo noticed too... long before!) Secret message? That I did not find. (If I found it, I suppose it wouldn't be secret, would it?) And azule - happy 1066! Didn't something big happen then?

Well, if you could somehow manage to change time, such as by making a post that was in the past say something that it did not say when it was in its own present, then that would prove your worthiness. 'Tis a perilous quest, time travel. Be on your guard! (and don't put on any green "safety hats". :)

Now, if you could somehow manage to make the Voldeframe not have happened, and Time continue on, that would prove not only worthiness, but Awesome GreatBaobabishness.

I wonder if after the five endish frames, we'll see the raft break free, and drift off somewhere. And we still have two Beanies to account for. So, the saga is not over yet! It isn't. You must keep the faith, otherwise what good is all the religion we've developed here in the thread?

All of you, have a Most Molpish holidip, and be safe in your travels. :)

Thanks for checking which frames those are so we can track them, BlitzGirl. But the sequence ABCDEC is actually correct. You gotta ignore the ABCDE as it's not part of any recurring sequences. If the C is followed by another C then we're on track for it being the same sequence as Time.

Ah yes, thanks for the correction! That next newpix is a D, so we have CD so far, which may put the panpix on track for copying exactly what happened after the Voldiframe and initial five oldpix.

I hope we don't have to watch the epilogue sequence over again. Having it on repeat on the OTC page is endish enough.

To bacon, or not to bacon, that is the question
Whether 'tis Nobler in the mind to suffer
The lack of that glorious taste
Or to consume the sow and bear
and by eating end them? To die, to sleep
No more; and by sleep, to say we end
The life of the sow or bear
That the Flesh is heir to? 'Tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wished. To eat, to taste,


One day I will rewrite the whole thing

You (probably) don't know what you're calling "stone age"!
Way back when BlitzGirl was finishing her first blitz (late April to early May by the Outside calendar), I had to spend a few dips in the Eastern Carpathians. There was snow everywhere, the rivers were small but not small enough to jump across them, and we walked uphill most of the way. :)
(And no, there wasn't particularly much phone signal, either.)

...Seriously, the comic above is pretty close to my own situation. Just last *night, I only went to bed around 4am, and the previous few *nights it was often even later (won't quote it specifically, but my most recent blitz report ended with something along the lines of "I really should've been in bed seven nopix ago").
There are two films that I particularly like.
One of them is a science-fiction dramatic comedy involving a boy who accidentally travelled in time. Extremely popular when it originally came out in 1985, it retains a major cult following to this day.
The other one, of course, is Back to the Future.

Perfect reposting of the OTTercomic, waveney. Seeing as I am in my parents' house, it's 4am, and I'm the only one awake... :mrgreen:

Hey OTTers, Sorry I can only talk like an outsider, it has been too long since I last lookad at the OTT. I would love to catch up, but I feel it is a challenge too big for me, can you give me a tour? (I know there is the wiki, but i don't want to read it all, and it's more fun like this...)

To all OTTers merry holidips from a very sunny and relativly warm apline country, looking nothing like a snowy christmas eve at all.
My statistics tools work again and I have to announce a very happy fact: In the last two wips we grew again from barely 20 OTTers a day to almost 30! The graphics can be seen as usual on my site at mschas. (Welcome back Angelastic!)
With that I am leaving for a nice family evening with roasted raptor and egg liqueur and vanilla ice for dessert. I hope all of you have a nice and warm and loving celebration too.

Welcome back. Maybe go read MistyCat's or mrob27's posts to hit the highlights. Or just jump in from here, that's fine too. Most of us still understand outsider, and if you don't understand our OTTish just let us know and we'll translate.

Thanks, but I just decided I will blitz, starting on page 182 or something like that, when I last posted here :)
If I come across anything, stupid as maybe, I will probably post it, so don't wonder.

Awesomeful ottifications, Dracomax!

The new AotC was treeish as always, ucim.
Welcome back, Angelastic! It's molpish to see you, and thanks for the ottification4!
And another ottification4, this time by slinches!
Treeish OTThercomic, waveney! Molpish Holidips to you and everymolpy else, too! Except for yappo, who gets a molpy ch*rpmas! :mrgreen: Steakish and awesomeful OTColourmanipification! And it includes turtlemolpy! It seems like the proportion of ice in the semencancercoffeebaconbabies has increased...

And it's a lonely place here on the thread. Me and a handful or guests. I should probably take that as a sign to coma.

ETA: Tho' now Zooman is here. Hi, Zooman!

And then ETA to add "ETA"

Hi lmjb! :)
Wait on.

I'm here. Now. Here and now. I've de-Blitzed. Not Blitzing any more because I've achieved the whole purpose of a Blitz which is to be here. Now. In the present. After blitzing. I should have gone coma but it's Christmas eve, and who can properly coma on Christmas Eve when you're waiting for your coal!

I was looking forward to realtime interaction in the immediate now, but now I'm presently present (at Christmas) and want so much to say so much to things like yappobiscuit's Merry Ch*rpmas post and the gift of Cake from SBN and to apologise for not including a translation in my last post (thanks, BlitzGirl), but my mind has lost a goal. The journey was so much more than the destination.

Hey, you ch*rping ch*rpwit, do you realise just how offensive that could sound?

Um, no? Every OTTer has been through the Voldeframe despair. Cakes and Ale, Tea and Sympathy, empathy, forgiveness, other old book titles. That's the OTT.

Well, if you're sure. Bring your own sprinkles. You're here now. Do something.

Who, me? Anything I can do, every OTTer can do better. And has done.

Just fake it. OTTify something.

Well, okay. Does it have to be good?

Duh. Just do it.

But I'm not my normal happy purring self. My Blitz has obsessed me for the past four mips, and now it's over. It's over. There's something missing from my life.

Quit whining. Even attractive, young, clever and creative people can't get away with that. What chance do you have, you dried-up old ch*rpwit?

Oh, thank you just enough. Now get lost, I have OTTifying to do.

Spoiler:
CueganMegball

I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: A vast and sculpted house of sand
Stands in the desert. Near it, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered molpy lies, whose hand,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed:
And on the pedestal these words appear:
"My name is Cuegan Megball, queens and kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.

Woulds't that that time could now to us return
The Ongs awaited constant in their thrum.
Repeated and redundant, with Time's turn
A hive of molpish movement, like a drum
beat, keeping time, repeating Time; that beat
that like a Molpy's heartbeat loud and strong
will tick off tallies totalled, treeish, neat;
But yet each newpix tallied, every Ong
that echoes, heard or unheard, is the same
beat of the drum that counts the life-sand's fall
through life's constricted hourglass; though the game
was magic, like the wond'rous wowterfall,
the journey ends in evil. And the name
of all that's evil is this: Voldeframe.


Oh Ch*rp. Not quite as fun-filled as I intended. I had a whole different idea when I started that, but I think my coma-lack took over.

OK. Coma. Now. Not later. Now. Coma.

Look, you self-centered moggy, what have you forgotten?

Hey, I'm old. I forget stuff... Oh, you're right. Merry thingy, everymolp.
Purrr.
