I often forget to read subjects. And I had to re-read the OtherComic again to get the reference.

Sustainabilizer, I unfortunately doubt that I can make it, as it would likely require too much annual leave, but I'll certainly give it some thought. If I were to make it, I'd probably be interested in giving a presentation. When do you need to know by?
Neil, I'm pretty sure that the What Ifs have been appearing on a Thor's dip (or possibly late mid-week's dip) for several mips now. I wonder why they changed.
Yup, definitely too quiet here. I might have to break out the tumbleweed again...
Glad you made it out. Hm, I wonder if BlitzGirl got stuck on those Escher stairs in the basement. We really should get rid of those.
Yes, it's not for nothing that BlitzGirl was called the heart and soul of the OTT. Maybe it was too much pressure for her. I sent her a PM, but she hasn't looked at it yet, since it's still in my Outbox (thanks for the explanation, balthasmart). I'm hoping that she either has a fabulous new job or a fabulous new romance that is keeping her busy but happy. And I'm hoping that she will find her way back here to tell us about it. In the meantime, we just need to Wait for It, and be the heart and soul for her till she gets back.
OK, I hope that it's not being too stalky, but I just saw a post on Facebug that suggests she was recently off having a good time. Molpish to know.
It is sometimes hard to see how slowly the NewPages pass, but I take comfort in the fact that still, all this Time after the *nd of Time, the OTT is rarely out of the top 2 or 3 on the fora list, and I don't think I've ever seen it below no. 5. Still life in these wolpies yet.
Oh, Sustainabilizer, BlueCrab has also not picked up her PM, so she still doesn't know about the conference.
I noticed BlitzGirl somewhere else in the Internet 3 days ago. Interesting, there are also other OTTers OTTing but if BlitzGirl is away the effect is stronger than if it was anyone else.
Also, some time ago I built lmjbot
. The next one I wanted to build is a blitzgirlbot. I just have to find some time and some elements.
I believe that the "That's a robot but it totally counts." in lmjb's sig is a reference to the "that's a robot so it doesn't count" in my sig. But why is there a "that's a robot so it doesn't count"?
In my first decree I wrote:
New here and already a pope?
DO NOT eat cassettes or throw bicycles at people!
More important than you might think.
But in my sig you can see someone throwing a bike at someone else.
But if you look close enough you see that she's throwing the bike at a robot
which doesn't count as violating the decree.
I already told about the picture in my sig earlier but this is the first time I explain the text (I think).
Yes, that line in my sig is an hommage
to your sig. I don't think you explained it before, but it makes my use of it even more relevant--nobody better throw a bike at my little lmjbot! Which reminds me, I have a picture to post. Maybe on my next post. An awesomeful picture.
Due to a time travel experiment gone awry (T** E** just recently happened in my worldline, and the sandcastle builder was just getting off the ground) I've found myself several months in my future/your past1
So - have I missed anything?
Other than a thousand or so pages in OTT that; while I would love to, I simply don't have the time to ketchup. After a brief mini-blitztwo
uh, ok - after appending in the footnotes I kinda forgot what was going to go here - thanks alcomaholsqrt(69)
... So, I'll just ask again, what have I missed?616
wonmonths? really? it really is true that the older you get, the faster time passes...
toobasically just checking out who's still posting, and briefly reading some multi-threaded commentspi
3pointwonforI forgot what was supposed to go here, distracted by pie - I like piegammer
third letter in the greek alphabet, as said by a new york cabbieI don't really know eitherbird
the wordare we nested enough yet?
number of a beastnest it to elven! rock onevil
am i?have you read "the good book"? I thought the villain was the hero, but apparently I'm wrong and going to he'llwhatever
what number am I on?damn you auto-correct
8-somethingyeah, I snuck a dirty joke in here, sorry
pioh yeah, forget the pie, I was talking about reading nested comments - basically my reasoning was that if something is nested enough times, it must be interesting, so I figured I could get at least some feel for what's been going down by checking out the most recurrant themesyeah, right
who's countingdoes anyone even have the patience to put up with this crap this long1190
timeI guess if you've followed the OTC and OTT this long, the answer is probably "yes"offtopic, but I'm not the artist that GLR is...
more offtipicyeah, the answer to any headline is always 'no', so this must be the exception that tests the rule
*EDIT* So I just did a little browsing, and my last post (in the OTT, of course), was one year ago, TODAY - thats just surreal-1
SURREAL, not IMAGINARY(not real)sorry, I'm an idiot
Yay, Febrion is back!! Welcome to the future/past! It's been awhile since we had some great footnotes like that, thanks! We're still here, much slower, but still here. You should check out the Time after Time series by SilentTimer (does someone have the link handy? Or is Link handy?) and the ongoing one by balthasar. Ketchup is much easier these days, due to the slower rate, which is *ndish but at least makes it easier to stay in the present. The current crisis is that BlitzGirl's gone missing (also related to the slower pace). But treeish stuff is still happening.
Preview edit: What the ch*rp is that in my subject??
