Uh, Pope again, woops. Last decree went well. Please keep it up!!

@StormAngel - That was hamplyballish.

Baobab treeish, Minim. BTW, I could swear someone had done that one in the past. But now it's definitely done. Yay! Hehe, I like the long stick figure hair! :)

If we are talking about not embedded but linked images, I'd like to differ: The panorama's got about 22 megapixels, which is quite a lot, even in greyscale. But my last Constellation of Time has got about 101 megapixels in full glorious colors.
Hehe, I wasn't claiming to have the largest, nor any panorama. Just that there existed larger images. Yeah, I think you might win. :P

Awesomefil OTThercomics, everyone! :)
I don't understand what the BeanieONGs are doing. When are they supposed to be available? Every four nopix, I know, but when exactly (with regard to OutsideH time)? I think once I saw a new one already after three nopix, and now, on the other hand, I can't find the new one. Newpixbot posted the last one almost four nopix ago. How long after a new BeanieONG becomes available will he post it, if nobody else posts it before?
Wait on.

Code: Select all

## 2.56
- Moved some code around so department/logicat rewards are checked just before rewarding, rather than when other boosts are checked

Just a little thing to help prevent unwanted rewards from popping up when they shouldn't.

So I chirped things up (and hey, a PM probably telling me about it. I'll read that after posting) when I moved stuff around. (ETA no it wasn't :P)

Code: Select all

## 2.57
- Yeah I wasn't passing the automationLevel into the new function. oops.

This is why I should test everything and not write code while watching a movie. (It's a great movie though)
ETA um why am I getting no sand? Not that it matter, but it's wrong!
Hmm the multiplier is 0. Must have messed something up...

Ironic that HES posted a meowlpy puzzle, being a wolpy herself. But I guess all molpies get along, right? I enjoyed it, but ch*rp it took long! (I'll try mscha's later today.) Treeish kitties, though. Hope you had a nice ride in the molpywagon (treeish StormAngel!) Hope Steve Hawking is happy. (Nice one ZoomanSP!)

@azule - I know you're doing it for science but I'm still worried. I think the grey is a disguise, not an effect of your experiments!

@ChronosDragon - What's the ottish word for "treeish"? Nice one!

Looks like the beanies are about to build a bridge. Now.. what was it we were trying to see if it floated? Churches? Lead?

My hair is (string)Boolean FALSE; And BlitzGirl - I C what you are doing just there. :)

@TheMinim - Wowtree! That's a boatload of ottercomix you treeishified! You go girl! And happy six hundred.

1
Half a page, half a page,
half a page onward,
TheMinim, while not out of breath
saw the six hundred.
"Pope said to Ottify!
"Here is the list to try!"
She simply took a breath
Otting six hundred.

2
"Forward and Ottify!"
Did anybody cry?
No, though the Otters knew
someone had blundered.
Theirs not to question Time
Theirs but to draw and rhyme
Theirs no concern of slime
green, or of horrible death
Otting six hundred.

3
Molpies to right of them!
Grapevines to left of them!
Blitzers in back of them!
Nobody chundered.
Boldly she ottified
well through the Voldeframe
drew and uploaded
Otting six hundred.

4
Tapping their leopard keys
Mousing their OTTitides
Slaying the mustard while
All the world wondered
Comics, they didn't spare
Pixels and words lain bare
Lesser than Otter types
Long ago would have fled.
Always TheMinim there
Otting six hundred.

5
Molpies to right of them!
Grapevines to left of them!
Blitzers in back of them!
Nobody chundered.
Driven by thoughts sublime
Long past the End of Time
Tho' some had fallen to
basement to heal.
Those that remained to post
Each one was diagnosed
Some even more engrossed
Ottishing each ripost.
Of the six hundred.

6
When can her glory fade?
O the decree conveyed
Otters all wondered.
Honor the posts she made,
Honor the art displayed,
Honor TheMinim and all the crusade.
All the six hundred.


Jose

However, the character that seems to be causing the most stir amongst the twitterati is U+1F574 m "MAN IN BUSINESS SUIT LEVITATING". People are asking why Unicode has seen fit to encode this particular character. The answer is that in 2011 my good friend Michel Suignard (and project editor of ISO/IEC 10646) proposed to encode the set of symbols used in the widely-used Wingdings and Webdings fonts that were not already in Unicode or unifiable with an existing character.

It's an otty of "The Charge of the Light Brigade", by Alfred, Lord Tennyson. (link added to my original post). It's about an ill-fated event where six hundred light cavalry were sent into the wrong battle, and commemorates their bravery.

BTW, nice Otty ergman! It speaks Truth. We must always Wait For It. That is the First and Greatest Commandment, and the second is like unto it: "RUN!".

(Actually, considering those green things, perhaps it's time to employ that one again!)

Yes, although that could be more down to this hill-people-ish laptop than the fora servers.

It was definitely slow for me earlier, seems to have quickened up a bit, though.

This one was tricky, with all those redundant kitties...

Here's another one. This one isn't too tricky, apart from all those black pieces at the bottom.

Yeah, but my interwebs connection is majorly ch*rping m*stardful at the moment so it's always like that for me... and everything else...
