Thank you so much. This is truly an honor. I'm sorry I can't be there in person, but Cory has been kind enough to accept on my behalf. Since "Time" was an animation which was published online at one frame per hour, I've asked Cory to read these remarks at one word per hour. If it's still Sunday when you're hearing this, it means he's COMPLETELY ignored my instructions. Thank you to everyone who came along on the four-month journey with me, collecting information and building tools to view the story. Thank you to all of you at WorldCon. And thank you to Cory, for generously volunteering to stand up here and read whatever words I write on this paper. Gazebo. Ointment. Harpsichord. Credenza. Bungalow. Thank you. The river is small. The sea is big!!!

For [previous] decree: I only looked up what credenza really meant after seeing the decree. For some reason had I just thought "cadenza" and moved on!

ETA: missed being pope by :that: much!

Not false, just somewhat economical with the truth. The isup.me site (very useful site) checked the base eternaldensity.github.io/, on the assumption that if that doesn't work then anything subordinate won't work. It didn't work.
The Sandcastle-Builder page simply sullenly sat there, saying, "I'm waiting on 'http://eternaldensity.github.io' and I'm ch*rping-well doing nothing until that lazy son of a sandcastle talks to me."
I suspect it was surreptitiously playing a game of Q04B under the table and just couldn't be bothered.

In Chrome, I reloaded, reloaded, reloaded, reloaded, with consistent failure.

Oh. I just closed that Chrome tab (Sandy Clicker) and opened a new tab (Skyrim with Guns) and all is well.

Carry on, folks. Nothing to see here.

Thanks, E.D.
Purrr.

Maybe github did have a brief downtime, I dunno. But it was definitely up when I checked.

Yay Time won a Hugo!

Which character in Time are we going to rename Hugo?

Why does keepforgettingtopost syndrome only affect me in the Time thread.
Does anyone actually read signatures?

Does the "only" part apply to "[you]" or to "the Time thread"?

If the former, it isn't only you. See the hundreds of people forgetting to post?

Ooh, treeish naming idea. Perhaps one of the two unnamed members of the Beanie Bunch?
Maybe the quiet one, Beanie-3, who goes to get the Ointment* for Megan.

Indeed, the long dactyllish poem was awesomeful! :D

My own late take on this pseudodecree:
Angelastic wrote: prose or poetry using all those words in order

is an epilogue poem featuring the Second Sequence of the Oughts, EDBADECBCBAECBDADCDCDBED.

SpeechONGfying

When OTTers want to play
There's this molpish place that we know
Ketchup's short
The dip is long
Let's go shoot up a gazebo
(Naturally this all will be via a small trebuchet)

Ointment for a raptorcat
Whistle for a blitzreport
Sophisticated buffyhat
Illuminati yet to thwart
Harpsichord to play this song
Punsaw to keep puns at bay
Throw them all in floaty bags and RUN away to where we're at

With raftcastle as transport
To the needle-pulled thing we go!
There might be a dancing thong
But it doesn't bother me though!

A credenza in the chat
Is a red hue fine to see, so
Take your used flag, call it that
Instead of baconcappuchino

Tumble to our bungalow; we've made Waiting an extreme sport
Time moves on but OTTers stay
Mapping baobabs and seaflow

Oh no! T** **d has come as I was in coma... Thank you to everyone in the OTT who contributed to SpeechONGs, so that GLR's decree instruction could be fulfilled.
Time. The final frontier. These are the voyages of Cueball and Megan. Its continuing mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no one has gone before.
