Yeah, all those popey decrees, I gots jealous. And since this is a blindPoping, I decree that everyone be blind (close your eyes) and touch something and describe it (eh, you can open your eyes to type). OR, you type your post with your eyes closed (sorry, smart phone people)!

That was typed with eyes closed. But I'm a touch-typer, so it didn't do much besides mustard up my hyphen.

Hmm I've got a bit distracted from the tale of Niclep. I guess he's still running upriver.


Speaking of that, I haven't been following very closely...is there a master copy somewhere?

After catching his breath, Niclep decided to look...

Describing something while blind: mostly smooth and rounded plastic, small enough to fit in my hand, a small floppy bit on one end and three spikier less floppy bits sticking out the other end. When I squeeze it the right way it says "Preparing to dispense product", "Target acquired" or other such things.

Blind description:

It's large and flat, and feels smooth. I'm grasping the edge which is ridged and seems to be made up of a number of extremely thin discrete surfaces which are also somewhat rigid but can be bent. One edge is more bumpy and round and feels more like plastic or metal and can't be split up like the other edges can. If my hands were photosensitive, I would be able to detect a number of crude drawings made in some kind of flaky, carbon-based substance scratched onto the surface.

Cheater! Some of uis, who learned home row, can reposition ourselves by using the nubs on the f and j keys! <- typed blind - not that impressive, considering I almost never look at the keyboard when typing anyway. ONly becommes problematic if I make a mistake and don't realize it.

This is my affenor ri rtoe blund.
So that should read "This is my attempt to type blind". If you look at your keyboard I was actually pretty close. I only type with two fingers and muscle memory is bound to make a mistake eventually.

Describing something while blind: It has 4 skinny rod-like things coming out of a larger, square-shaped thing that a has another thicker rod coming out at a weird angle. The rods are hard but have a thin flexible covering that can be moved slightly. At the ends of the rods are a harder, immovable surface covering one side.

Hmm. Papal decree doesn't help much with comprehension, let me type that again with eyes open.

This is getting so exciting! But for now, I'm off to coma. Bye all!

Good nix all. Coma well. And for those un-coma'd, keep the faith and wait for it.

Sorry, I did type this with my eyes closed, but I am a rather decent typist. So, though I did follow the Papal Decree, one may not find it noticeable in this post. Anyhow, good nix and wait for it.

...closer at the waterfall.

Postby Eternal Density » Thu Jun 27, 2013 4:38 am UTC

Okay let's see how good my touch typing is. Hopefully these sentences don't contain any errors. I did look to move the cursor to write the subject, but that's all. I have not looked at the leopard. I mean the keyboard.
And I'm not looking at the screen while I type either :P Just the back of my eyelids. Technically. I can't see them in the dark.

Blindposting is easy.

Megan should let Cueball have his way for a little while and just rest. Stubborn won't get you anywhere just now, Megs.

ETA: Wow, no errors. Thought for sure I'd mess up when I deleted half my sentence and had to count how many times I hit backspace.

Here's my belated attempt to figure out how fast the sun is setting. I'm assuming our sun over our earth─a 24-hour day. The image below is my crude effort (I'm pretty gimpy in GIMP) to identify the outline of the sun in the last few frames before it gets involved in the tree. It's hard to judge what of the white circle is supposed to be actual sun and what's supposed to be glare, but from the very latest frames I'd say my circles here are a bit scanty, and that the sun is actually moving about its own diameter every two frames.

The earth rotates about a degree every four minutes. The sun, like the moon, spans about a half-degree of arc in the sky, which means it takes about two minutes to move its own diameter. So, if my circles are as undersized as I think and I haven't totally mustarded my calculation, the sunset frames are only about one minute apart. Megball are moving rather slowly, but not impossibly so; it's only been about seven minutes since they walked into the scene. And in four more newpix the sun's upper limb should barely be showing; in five np the sun should be gone.

Darn, I was hoping to get this posted before mscha coma'd. I could use a second opinion; I don't trust my figures when I'm this tired. (I'm too tired for pagal decrees; I nearly forgot to attach the image.)

Good coma, Waiters! "The sun'll come out, tomorxip! Bet yer bottom dollar that tomorxip, there'll be sun!" Good night, Mrs. MobTeeseboose, wherever you are!

Do you have a quick way of en/decrypting these? Because I know how, but it would take so long...


I posted some command line PHPHeresy code which can decrypt them, it's a little involved - all the important bits (data and offset) are inside the script, and you have to have the data file named correctly, but it works for me(TM)

I quite frequently manage to weird people out as I often type without looking- one day at school we had some rather interesting weather going on outside, so I spent half the lesson doing my work, typing away while staring out the window. I mastered the art of typing without looking a long time ago, since i do a fair bit of lipreading and one cannot lipread and look at the keyboard at the same time.

Edit- all that, and this edit, are typed with eyes closed, f course.

I'm currently at np 939, so this is part 1 of N. My appologies for the sea.

Yes I am astronomically minded...

Its coming down fairly steeply at about 30 degrees from virtical - we must be looking roughly west for this to happen. This must be in the southern hemisphere, and between 10 degrees south (at Northern Summer solstice) and 50 degrees south (at Southern Summer solstice). Any further away and it could not set at that angle.

My guess is it'll settle around #444444 and we'll see some stars come out.

It won't go all black, how else will we be able to watch for meowplies? Stars are a possibility, as they were entioned earlier within the otcverse

Can't be Australia. There's no big felines native to Australia, not since the Tasmanian Tiger went extinct. The only thing capable of doing that sort of damage is the dingo, and dingoes don't hiss or have tails like that. I should know, I have a pet dingo/kelpie cross.

What has been concerning me is they didn't bring along the stick Megan used to fight off the moldy cat (molpycat -- I get a lot of interesting phrases using autocorrect :? ). It looks like it would have made a good walking staff, and could have helped Megan in some of the difficult sections. Also, they don't seem to have anything else handy to ward off another attack, other than their bare hands :(

Ketchup: Part N of 2.

Oh worshipful pope: All of this was blind typed, except the quotes, of course, and a little bit of other stuff. By blind typed, I mean I didn't look at the leopardkeyboard.

Well. It's just my luck to be super busy when something like a sunset happens. Seriously... 9 NPs behind in only 12 newpix??? Ugh. I hate being stuck in the past. But I have never skipped a single post since returning to the OTT around 640. Very tempting though... *sigh* I hope y'all aren't offended if I don't respond to much along the way. I just want to be in the present again!
In Svithjod, there stands a rock. It is 100 miles high and 100 miles wide. Once every 1000 years a little bird comes to this rock to sharpen its beak. One time, I changed just the last sentence of this signature, and lots of you noticed. Image

If they're the two I see, the use of "something" and "it" imply molpiality to me. Ewww!
