Molpish!!!

Also molpish: the new update!

Code: Select all

### 1.88
- New batch of icons by BlitzGirl!


ETA decree: praise BlitzGirl, also go back to my post 2222 to see the cakes if you missed them. Also post pictures of molpies with clocks or other Timepieces. (or perhaps clock hats?)

ETA why are my rivers destroying many orders of magnitude more than they build?

ETA xuys?

So StormAngel and I both simultaneously realised the following truth: with great redundancy comes great redundancy!
I conveyed this wisdom to my (or our if you include StormAngel) dad and he was greatly amused :D

Because the old castles aren't build to code and collapse due to the wind. You should discipline the Castle tools that build the old castle.

The new icons are treeish for sure! Technicolour Dreamcat is my favourite. Bag Puns says Bag. Hehheh. :)

I was surprised when Waveney said Glass Jaw was useless - that's part of my biggest castlemaker where I am in the game.
Spoiler:
For a while, buying bags was increasing my river output and that was my big thing, but then Swim Between the Flags came along and dwarfed my regular production. But now that I have Ninja League, Ninja Legion and Glass Jaw, nothing compares to what I get when the Ninja Builders do their thing.

Swimming between the Flags currently has me alternating between 290T and 5.7P castles at the ONG, but then the Ninja Builders kick in 196P. I used to leave the game running at night and be happy with the stash of castles I had in the morning. Now, I have to make sure I quit when I'm not going to be around, because the stealth streak is everything.

How about a molpy with a piece of Time? Newpix 65 specifically.

Coments on Logicat:
It is very tough - I have managed one correct answer since you started it, and several incorrect ones. (My power is now at -2.5). I think they need to be simpler and/or have more time - most of them have simply timed out. Perhaps they could get slowly more complex as you improve the level.

ggh wrote:I was surprised when Waveney said Glass Jaw was useless - that's part of my biggest castlemaker where I am in the game.

Ninja Builder does not build enough castles (now) to even affect the least significant digit of my castles. The same goes for Sand. My biggest castle makers are currently DoN and Waves on Even newpix and Scaffolds on Odd newpix. (I now have 1.3PWW castles).

Heh - yeah, I don't even know what those prefixes mean yet. I'm just saying that Ninja Builder is a huge thing to me right now; it's the thing that's going to get me to the next big thing, so please don't get rid of it.

It does unlock something else.

1PWW is Peta Wololo Wololo = 1 x 1E15 x 1E42 x 1E42 = 1E99 - significantly more castles than photons in the universe. One hopes they don't collapse under their own gravity and cause a multi-universe sized black hole. I wonder what the mass of a castle is? (As an astrophysist I could calculate some "interesting affects" of that mass)

I noticed a similar occurence yesterdip, one of the castle tools was making less that 1000 when destroying [a lot more] - but I'm pretty sure it was scaffolds or waves.
Sorry I didn't think to take a screenshot, I just checked and it appears to have fixed itself now.

Waves can destroy more than they make (on odd frames) if you have 'Swim Between the Flags', on even frames thay make far far more than they destroy.

I did that for a looooonnnnnnnnggggggg time - but as the order of doing things is to increment frame number before doing the castle tools - you actually need to use time travel to move to an odd number

Molpy Down!

Postby Eternal Density » Fri Oct 11, 2013 12:37 pm UTC

My rivers are better now. Not sure what I bought to fix them. I'm up to giga wololo castles now I made a big leap due to Temporal Rift. I also had to rebuy some stuff due to popping back to shortpix, but I too the opportunity to cheat Rosetta by trading with her using time travelled bots. Also I found a seriously exploitable bug with Rift which I have not had a chance to fixyet. Also I fforgot to wind back the DoN price decrease rate. Oh well.
So I've got 2 bugs, perhaps some expensive ninja upgrades (though ninja power is kinda ridiculous even though it's simultaneously insignificant against the ludicrous numbers, speaking of which, what does 'multiverse sized' even mean? It's not a well defined concept...) and saving what groups are visible, and then I better get back into work on the next big thing.

Oh and I need to decide how to change timetravel pricing...
BBTW waveney I just realised why your logicats are vanishing too soon :p


ETA my rivers are destroying ferro but building yotta... Oh I bet I'm applying class ceiling to the wrong function. Derp!

That is the one ceiling I don't yet have...

ETA lots:
what does 'multiverse sized' even mean?

Well the Visible universe is about 25 billion parsecs in radius, it's probably a lot larger (at least 1000 times) otherwise there might be more observable effects in the CMB at the largest scales.

Lets use 1000 as the factor so the universe has a radius (not that it means much in relativistic inflated universe) of at least 25 trillion parsecs.

The Schwarzschild radius (The radius of the event horizon around a black hole) of the universe may be many orders of magnitude larger than this. That of the observable unverse is slightly more than of the observable universe anyway.

The mass of 1PWW castles is going to be many orders of magnitude larger than that of the observable universe - even if they only had the mass of a neutrino. Thus the resulting black hole will be enormous - so enormous you would not notice being within it.

Yes that is the reason I mentioned it at all. Not that I think of it as an exploit since you can't get around the tradeoff of not unlocking newpix.
You might be better off waiting for me to fix the ceiling. Or maybe not. Either way it's almost midnip

Oh, the keyboard must have been redundant Middle Bangs Brother, don't you think? Important B-2 requests (in the least flammable writer in the real world who turns, and often wonders) the old Department who likes the Department and the baobab but no one cared. The Pope clicks (in front of the overbearing pricklymolp who drops (for the nearly redundant Department) the stranger looking in the window) molpish Newest Bangs Brother! The late Department of Redundancy Department under an Old One could be fully black beesnake-like. Neat, yeah, your other door burns (in the fast dilgunnerang and the yellow ruin), and asks (towards the dirty Department of Redundancy Department) your OTC which might be quite clean like a wolpy and that was that. Ch*rping m*stard, the most redundant Department of Redundancy Department which throws (behind your badge) dedicated Forelock refreshes at the Department and Expando. Nooooooooo, the brown avatar and the snake always builds the snakeish Department of Redundancy Department but I don't believe a single word of it. Yes, my formal cheese clearishly fires one of your parents. The raptor who eats the beesnake is going to be molpy-like, really.

Black Bun is the Pope who blood-soakedly sees my angry pun and that was that. Alright, Pulled Back which quotes, and is sanding (along chilled Buzz for your long lost cousin from Australia) the blue keyboard and my wet tent could have been not redundant. Xe and the tent is almost but not quite entirely molpy-like... The green Department questions (over the Department of Redundancy Department and the kitty) the redundant mushroom, and that was that. Your squashed cake nearly quotes one of your parents. Nooooooooo, the rabtor fires interesting Meg-a-like from your white cake like a chilled cake or perhaps not. Nooooooooo, the tired Department who is going to have been almost old kitty-like always is OTTing the pricklymolp???? The mustardy molpy should be partly badger-like. Finally, the seawolpy and the cybernetic molpy angryishly clicks the prolific seawolpy and the black ladder.

Bob will have been redundant Megan and the Department of Redundancy Department. The nearly clear Department of Redundancy Department almost drops the Department who eats along whoever is on the outside of the screen looking in, don't you think? Neat, extreme Mini-Two-Tone and Bunny throws the keyboard which should have been partly chirpy-like (or so you've been lead to believe). Yeah, your boost is puning the badger beside your blitzing trebuchet who is sacking inside your long lost cousin from Australia who refreshes like a redundant dolphy, and wonders over the blood-soaked dolphy which could be wrong like a computer, and that was that. The short Department under the least other musician in the world who explodes worries like a rotten seawolpy. Curly Bun questions the kitty leading to the tragic events of today.

The Mome throws (along B-1 along the stranger looking in the window) the Department, and that was that. The wolpy sings in my pants. The solid wolpy and the chirping seawolpy nearly runs. Neat, the redundant flag never chirps, and questions the unkeyboard-like dedicated beesnakeish Department of Redundancy Department but I am okay with that now. One of your parents wears (towards deconstructed Rosetta), and chases (behind molpish Curly Bun in the old computer nowhere near Mini-Shortdo), and never asks, and carries (inside the bot which dies like a kitty), and requires (inside my boring sea who dies like a riverish pricklymolp), and kicks (from flammable Shortdo), and likes (underneath your trebuchet), and clicks, and kicks (into your steambottle) one of your parents who could have been badgerish, right? Sparse who interestingishly asks your long lost cousin from Australia to the a little bit other Department quotes the Department or perhaps not. The dry magnet could have been incredibly dead so, yeah... The redundakitty almost requests, and almost requires, and asks (into important Megan) my tree away from a random OTTer who jumps with cybernetic Expando, and burrows like a green river (or so you've been lead to believe). Roundhair is going to be somewhat old. The badger drops my tool, right?

On reflection, I'm enjoying what I have (thanks, Y'all) so much that more would probably be too much.

I imagine that the future-Y'all will be making some replies in the your-now which I won't see in the my-now until I reach the new-now of your past-then, so when I reach the this-then and reply from the will-be-this-then to your newer-now I can say a future-now thanks to your newer-new-now.

Chronogram from mrob27

Postby mrob27 » Fri Oct 11, 2013 9:43 pm UTC

Chronogram from mrob27
        Origin: Newpage 584 ; Destination: Newpage 1535


This time I have a few older messages that apparently had a longer journey through the Time-vortices (they were slightly dented in spots when they arrived, and one message set off the tachyon detector).

To @azule, from way back:
azule wrote: @Timborme - thanks for the cpw update. Darn, I thought we were still gonna beat them. :(

Oh yeah, that's still on my list of mustardthings to investigate in nopixbot (my perl script for parsing the OTT). There's still a lot of ε stuff that I'm counting - JavaScript in [cöde] blocks, unsolved cypher puzzles and Randall-knows-what else. But the numbers have improved since my last report. I made it stop counting Heretical date stamps (like T̷u̷e̷ ̷S̷e̷p̷ ̷1̷0̷,̷ ̷2̷0̷1̷3̷ ̷1̷1̷;̷4̷2̷ ̷a̷m̷ ̷U̷T̷C̷ newpix 4184.71) which boosted the average word length.
    Here are new figures for the OTT, with the literary works for comparison; for the old figures and a fuller explanation of how the other works were counted, see my post in NP1457 :
  • Tolkien: 623,674 words; 5.329 avg wordlen
  • King James Bible: 790,216 words; 5.329 avg wordlen
  • Shakespeare: 985,834 words; 5.624 avg wordlen
  • Harry Potter: 1,149,637 words; 5.736 avg wordlen
  • OTT (level-N quotes count 8-N): 2,962,771 words, 12,858,856 chars; 4.340 avg wordlen
  • OTT (level-N quotes count 4-N): 3,276,129 words, 14,252,938 chars; 4.351 avg wordlen
  • OTT (level-N quotes count 2-N): 4,068,403 words, 17,775,025 chars; 4.369 avg wordlen
  • OTT (level-N quotes count 1-N): 6,757,912 words, 29,722,362 chars; 4.398 avg wordlen
The way I'm blitzing, the 4-N weights are about right, and the first 584 Newpages add up to 968,533 words with a 4.320 avg wordlen. Two conclusions: The post length and average word length of the OTT increases over time; and I'm not even close to 1/3 of my Longblitz yet.

@ucim:
ucim wrote:@Timborme - I'm glad we narrowly escaped quantum termination - that was a close one! Good work with the QUG - it's nice to know we're safe again.

Yes... safe for now ... we've set up a trapdiplomatic summit for the Campaign for Real Time at Newpage 1541. Since this is the Future we're talking about, nothing is certain (Wait For It, 'member? :) ) and nopixbot is running the calculations now. We'll project the auxiliary TARDIS entrance to then (or maybe a NP or two earlier) and attend the "summit" in person...

@Kieryn:
Kieryn wrote:Okay the final sequence of obelisk is available for all to watch. http://kieryn.com/Slides/View/41
Take your time to read the mouseover text on each frame. Let me know what y'all think :)

Wonderful ... because of my Blitzgirling and retrOTTification and poetry and all :roll:, I didn't learn about Obelisk quite as soon as the others, but I made sure to get to it when I had the time to experience it properly. (I learned of it through the OTT Facebook group. Now there's a paradox, how can the OTT be on Facebook if Facebook is part of the Outside?)
    This is so much better when I zoom in my screen (on a Mac Option-Command-8, part of Universal Access), and I used headphones too natch... and I thank you for making it also work better when I zoom up to 200% with my browser (apparently you made it work on phones and tablets too, good job!).
    I was pretty frightened during the relevant parts of the final sequence. I feel like I've been to Stoodley Pike myself :D (previously my nearest approach would have been during a coach ride from Glasgow to Liverpool; that is to say, somewhere on the M6, so I didn't stand a chance of seeing it at all. :roll:) Anyway, it was like a bit of the Cyan game 'RIVEN'! So, you made a happy mrob Image thanks!

@azule:
azule wrote:mrob_27 reserved xkcd#1047, as I recall.

Yes, mainly out of ego (so, not a good reason I guess) and I thought it would be cool: since I'm an OTTer, the OTTification of the words "... and Robert Munafo's RIES tool" would be "... and mrob27's RIES tool".
    Really the main problem with 1047 is that I can't see how to make it funny in an OTT way. What do we do, change the units of everything to Cueballs (distance) and cubic centiCueballs of coffeesemencancerbabybacon (mass)? Okay, so the values of the physical constants change, and then it's just a different bunch of silly equations. Equally funny as the original but now limited to the OTTer audience, and perhaps useful for trolling Rosetta, but that's about it.
    Clearly I'm thinking too much "in the box" and really the way to OTTify 1047 is to depart from equations and numbers and change it into something completely different. So I'm not likely to do anything with it anytime soon...

It is humbling and touching to receive such praise from all of you (I'm replying to a few more below). So, I'll give the backstory to my recent poetry and song:

I got to NP467 where @Valarya suggested that @BlitzGirl might do a song based on xkcd 1052, and there were a few mentions of it in subsequent discussion. I got curious and looked at the Wiki (I know, not Waiting For It, naughty mrob!) and decided, hey if I've got until NP937, well there's nothing stopping me from working on my own version while I duly Wait For whatever comes on NP937.
    So I programmed nopixbot to scan for unintentional iambic octameter (not hard at all, once you have the datafile) and spent a lot of time adding OTT-specific words to a supplemental dictionary file (plus non-OTT, common intenetty words like "facebook" and "url"). In the first 576 Newpages my script identifies 206 candidates, of which maybe half are decent enough to use. There are 297 in the next 576 Newpages, so I'll have more to work with if I decide to do a sequel. Only this post and this post contain more than two (a clue that a song or poem lies within).
    As an example of what this thing detects, here are my own inadvertently iambicly octametrical writings, from my various time-capsules:

   on NP1453: a spoiler for a Blitzer reading it at the inténded time.
   on NP1472: enough to work this out and also we just need to Wait For It.
   on NP1476: agree with lmjb1964 ("L m J b NINEteen SIXty FOUR") and think it's good.
   on NP1491: a pinch). I wear it proudly and will keep it clean and mustard-free.

And yet the bot's kinda picky, even missing some of my original verse on the latest scan. It of course finds real song lyrics:
    "the mississippi delta shining like a national guitar", this is the start of Paul Simon's "Graceland", is an example where even in context of the original post you don't know it's part of a song (I had to Google it). 16 syllables usually doesn't express a complete and self-contained thought, but when reading the original post I might see a way to adapt it. Then of course one needs to match up lines for rhymes.

That would actually work out pretty well: the Blitzpope (or BlitzPapst) could say something like: you will-having-been discussing synesthesia. And it's true, I know, because I've read it. And those who wish (since the decreee is always voluntary) would undertake to find evidence of whetever the Blitzpope said. Of course it might be something that's not so easy to find with a search, like three of those still active on the OTT will-having-been writing unitentional haiku containing the word river. (Which may or may not be true, I haven't confirmed it, but maybe I'm a Blitzpope of the Holy Contradiction. So watch out! I may decree something that has not taken place but could have in an alternate Time-universe :twisted: ).

...okay

ha ha :D just a little BWIC just for you @Eternal Density. I discovered your 'redundancy.js', possibly because of the huge amounts of bizarre walltext that have been showing up in my RHTF version of the OTT, and couldn't resist to pay tribute to it and to SC in general. After all, who is better qualified to provide the Redundancy for my poem than the DORP? So I ran the output of this:

Code: Select all

 m1="";for(j1=0;j1<143;j1++){m1=m1+"\x20"+MakeRedundancy().paragraph();}

through nopixbot to get some ideas, and invented a little (I have no idea if it can generate anything with ditransitive verbs).
    While I have the chronotransponder running, I may as well mention this... for some reason you (ED) have been generating a lot of iambic octameter, or maybe I'm just noticing it more because your long username stands out in my listings. But here's a sampling:
in various posts, Eternal Density wrote:
    NP1471 "delay before descriptions vanish links in boost descriptions work"
    NP1472 "another little bug i missed but i've forgotten what it was"
    NP1493 "of references in the ott i haven't thought of yet"
    NP1501 "a crazy boost i like it yeah it's seriously powerful" <- (actually that's part BlitzGirl)
    NP1521 "if so i'm putting in a little change to limit that a bit"
    NP1530 "but then the othercomic happened and i had to change a lot"ϖ

This showed up in my iambic-octameter output, and I didn't have to look at anything else to figure out that you've been doing a lot with Sandcastle Builder!
    Do you realize you're doing this? :) Do we need to perhaps get you some help? I wondered if writing changelogs in verse is the newest OTT meme, or something they teach in JavaScript tutorials. :D I'm blitzing, so I miss these things... but I thought

    perhaps Eternal Density attempts
    to write at least a line or two
    of poetry in every "Here's the new
    release of Castle Builder" post?!??
        WELL.

    I PM'd @Caswallon to find out how to place the stress on "Caswallon", and for my dictionary of OTT words with stress placement, I'll be asking OTTers for more help. Not urgent, and only if others might want to start using my poetry search tools.

@lmjb1964 may be referring to my acknowledgment of xeir experience related here. But for everyone, here are my notes and credits for the song. If anyone's name is missing or in the wrong place they can let me know.

 

I'll sign off now. My blitz slowed down a bit, which often happens after an intense push (like 'epic' poetry, or Boom-da-Yadas), and I also need to program the TARDIS for arrival near NP1541. So for now, best wishes to the afterwhen from the distant past!

"cpw" is "characters per word"

as in ʀᴇʟᴀᴛᴇᴅ, 'cuz it's ALL related.

azule said "TiTy" . . . tittie heh-heh!

Heresy. But given that it helped me decide to write the song, I'll gladly strap myself into the comfy chair and hurl the stale chocolate straight up into the air onto myself.

BWIC = Brain Worm Induced Cueballitis

Thank Firesign Theatre. See Don't Crush That Dwarf, Hand Me the Pliers, the origin of "Department of Redundancy Department".

ϖ (BTW: "othercomic"? ED wrote that line yesterdix ... and that's how I learned about xkcd 1275 (not the @Neil_Boekend reference and response above). What does that say about me?)

Well, it alternates between Cloudymip and Rainymip. We get 1 or 2 Sunnymips every year...worryingly often as of recently. (Only in Seattle is it worrying to get sun :lol: )


Not to worry you - I have been to Seattle 8 or 9 times (and twice to Vancouver) and only recall rain once (OK it was very heavy rain all day), I have also known nice sunny days so you could see Mt Rainier.

Sure, they bring the mountain out for visitors. It's telling though, that they announce it on the radio when it is out, and one of the local weather phrases is "sun-breaks." Only place I know of where people forget how to drive on dry pavement. Amount of rain isn't that high, amount dips it falls is.

And you know what? I'd move back in a heartbeat if I could. Our weather phrase here is "pop-up thunderstorms". I'd need a few Muggymips on my list.

Everyone, sorry for that seaish mustarded post on NewPage 1525. Every now and then the multiquote script seems to hang onto quoted stuff that I already responded to. I didn't notice all that extra stuff was tacked on at the bottom of the post, and you were all too polite to tell me that my post took up half the page. and was a bunch of quoted things with no response from me. Or maybe a lot of my posts are too seaish and you just figured I was doing it again. Anyway, it's fixed now, but in the process I lost a couple of other things I was going to respond to. Ch*rp.
