Do to immediate exposure to high levels of "stupid" this mornix I am sure that I will be wanting to pay more attention to the OTT and OTG, rather than on my required "work". I have a rather low tolerance to "stupid", and my morning exposure is just about at the limit of tolerance. If this continues, further exposure will reach unhealthy levels. :|

So is it legit to go back and edit posts in the sub - 1000 pages to retrospectively encourage Amanita?

And someone needs to find out if this is a Muscaria, Vaginata (I'm not making this up) or a Phalloides. It makes rather a difference :(

If it is not legal to go back and encourage people then I have already sinned.


Yeah, but to paraphrase my least-favorite Rodgers&Hammerstein, "You're dead already. You got nothing to lose."

Yes, catching up to the context of some of these quotes has been fantastic. I specially liked patzer's

As I was reading that before even finding out about the comic itself. So it was awesome finding the source of the quote, and its context, in real time :)

That's something only someone that reads everything can appreciate. So, to all the people that skipped pages in order to catch up: Shame, shame on you! A wiki page has been advertized that gives a "summary" of all the pages in the thread, I'll really doubt it's the same experience, though I'll probably never know, since I'll read the wiki after catching up with the thread, and it's still outpacing me by a significant factor.

Feel free to leave me a time capsule by replying to this message, I'll read it once I catch up with page 274 ("current page") which should be about 2 weeks from now (which would make the "current page"... I don't know which one, let me check...)

TRIPLE NINJA'ED: Wow! And to think I won't read these three messages until a much later time! This is a new way of interacting with forums for me.


This is very true - the experience of moving through the thread and seeing all of the time-bending edits and encouraging sig messages must be a rather different journey from those going through it the first time. I have seen the End Frame, although I don't know what it means :shock:
I have been exercising iron self-control while reading the Book of Aubron and never skipped a frame ahead of the current place in the needle-pulled thing.
I have tasted the Reckoning, although I was never there to truly feel its sweet warping. I have laughed and cried along with you all, but separated by a blanket of Time, so you never knew it.

Hi, many-times-future Vytron! I look forward to catching up to your post-catching-up-reply-to-my-post-catching-up-reply.

Yes. As for the javascript error, that's because it was loading an old version of the javascript which hadn't been configured to notice that the game wasn't around so it would try to do stuff like create the ONG clock.

Does that actually work for you? :shock:

Perhaps the company you work for is not the same as the one I work for. We are not so technologically advanced as to be able to manipulate the level of Stupid in the office at any given time. We also have issues with additional Stupid contamination from client emails. You would think we could somehow filter that to prevent leakage, but I suspect that is a limitation of our inferior technology. This should be no surprise, actually.

Decided to make an OTColorization because it's been a while since we saw one. But as soon as I opened MSPaint I realized that I absolutely suck at painting so I spent a whopping 2 minutes whipping this elementary-level masterpiece together for you to feast your eyes upon! :mrgreen: Unfortunately I mustarded up the pricklymolp so much you can't even tell what it is. :P

Well, it would work, if I had the right Control Panel. I'd actually prefer client stupid. Management stupid is generally much longer lasting. They've fixed the work-life balance problem though... From now on employees just need to tell their boss and disconnect, and they won't bother you unless it is important. So, yeah, that'll totally stop next Saturday's 8 hour conference call.

There will be people there, and he will discover something really cool after he finishes being scared out of his wits. I predict the people are there to observe something relating to the sky, and seasons, perhaps based on superstitions.

Debating which of these should be my post.

Do I have to start with a D?

Do I usually follow decrees?

Decrees are things I don't always follow.

Do I like cake? Don't know.

I would say the last 3 are related, considering mscha's influence on the OTT, and of course XKCD what-if and the world and hypothetical worlds in general.

Yay! I'm glad you liked it. I agree, the first simple one is good. And I agree that the mouseover would add too many bytes to the error page.

Re: Beacon Beta, Papal Decree

Dammit, it's Karhell's wanderings, again!
1116th mile of a very long journey (1503 miles... gaaaaaah)

Cuegan and the Beanies have entered a castle ! An actual real sized castle ! These are exciting times !

As I explore the countryside of OTTland, I encounter many wonders. Amidst many discussions of math and the infinity of infinities (of infinitely different sizes, no less), and music (fascinating, more on that later), I encounter yet another artifact : Beacon Beta is in sight, and since I'm way more than five pages back, here's my report.

Time Travelers: Welcome to Beacon Beta.

Please report to the Future Present if you're more then 5 pages behind.
The Tracker will be available soon.
<snip>


Nice looking beacon there, It's of great comfort to the weary traveler. I'll be waiting for the tracker ^^

Now that that's done, on to other interesting matters. There are a lot of great voice recordings, and considerations of the OTSoundtrack.
In this time, Yappo is considering a dynamic soundtrack for the OTC, which reminded me of this blog post by Krin Juangbhanich about Canary, a similar system.
If the OTSoundtrack is still a work in progress, it might be worth a look.

That's about it for now, I'll be on my way, trying to get closer to the present

ETA : papal decree

Definitely a treeish manip, mscha!
Despite some effort, I didn't find another word (which hadn't been used before) to start the post with.
Darn!
Wait on.

Don't know how long I've been gone.

Don't know when I'll be able to ketchup.

Don't know why the forum won't automatically log me in like I ask it to.

Damn Outside has me trapped. Desperate measures may be called for.

Do you know what would be good right now? Dunkin' Donuts.

Don't forget me! D... *signal breaks off*

Done! Don't really like it that much, wish I could have drawn it better. Does the grey and green part even look like a harbor, concrete thing with a rusted ladder for higher and lower tides? Probably not, but whatever.
Drew all of it on my phone but the boat, which is from google images.

Hi everyone! Long time no see! Just thought I'd pop in and say hi for a couple reasons.

First, I'm at the beginning of the anti-fade (which I think turns out to be a sunset based on the frame I accidentally saw before I was there) on NP 937. Thats the last time I posted IIRC, so I thought I'd give another update. Things are looking great back here, hope you've been keeping up the good work! (I'm sure you have :P )

Second, I'm pretty sure
Spoiler:
Time has ended! :shock:
from what I gather, but I'm still going in order at my own pace. Many newpix in the future I may finally join you, but for now I still Wait for It.

Third, I'm providing a long overdue song that I promised ages ago. I have like 3 other ones partially finished (that have stayed that way for a long time) but this one just popped into my head after I saw k.bookbinder's Goodby Blue Sky. Not sure if this one has already been done or not and maybe I've even been retro-future ninja'd but I hope you like it anyway! Its from Cueballs point of view mostly and definitely aimed at the Megball shippers (sorry if they turn out to be related or something!). Meant to be about the raptorcat attack during their climb up the mountain. Enjoy :)

Spoiler:
"Megan" based on Pink Floyd's Mother (Sorry, the superior album version is copyright protected on Youtube, at least in the US)

Megan do you think we’ll travel long?
Megan do you think they'll like this Ong?
Megan do you think that we should bring our bags?
Megan do we leave the flags?

Megan don’t we understand things yet?
Megan don’t you see the raptorcat?
Megan can’t you see you’re in the firing line!?
Was this just a waste of Time?

Hush now Megan, baby, don’t you cry.
Cueball’s gonna use part of the flag just for you.
Cueball won’t let you turn it a beautiful hue.
Cueball's gonna help you jump up over the stream.
He won’t let you fall, but he might let you dream.
Cueball’s gonna keep Megan cozy and warm.
Ooooh Megan ooooh Megan oooooh Meg
Of course Cueball’s gonna help you stand tall.

Megan do you think you’re strong enough -- to walk?
Megan do you think it's dangerous -- to walk?
Megan what if Lucky tore your Cue apart?
Megan would it break your heart?

Hush now Megan, baby don’t you cry.
Cueball's gonna check out all the molpies for you.
Cueball won’t let scary raptors get through.
Cueball's gonna wait up until you get well.
Cueball will always care more than he tells.
Cueball's gonna keep Megan healthy and safe.
Ooooh Megan oooh Megan oooh Meg,
You'll always be baby to me.

Megan, did it need to be so high?


Finally, a reply to something that actually related to my contributions to the OTT. Seeing as I haven't much, relating to something I actually did say has become something of an anomaly :P
