@Earthling on Mars: Oooh, flutterbeewingish hand drawn OTColorization!
@Eternal Density: Neat song OTTification. :mrgreen:
@ChronosDragon: Oooooh, shiny Newpix O Meter. But I feel I'm missing something, perhaps with lack of ketchup. What is a Wavepix?
@BlitzGirl: Wow. Treeish. I like how you piled up the sand to get the shadow.
@StormAngel: Yes! I came here this morning after seeing todays Othercomic about keyboards hoping there'd be a great OTTidy of it. Steakish, ser!
@yappobiscuits: Awesomeful filk. :)

Thanks for all the warm welcome-backs. Even though I was only gone for 30 NPs, that seems like forever these dips. :oops: Here are some cupcakes aplenty for all of you. You might need some pumpkins handy: Image

I believe that a wavepix is a measurement of Time that covers the space between beanONGs, and is named for waveney. Four hours, by heretical Outside reckoning.

That's a common reaction to the über-hattage, balthasar. It's both wowterful and utterly terrifying.

Been a while since I last posted.

* Started reading at least one page from the middle of the OTT for every page I read at the end. Much faster than keeping up with SB, especially considering resets.
* I'm 99.5% sure already, but same ED?
* Trying to set up some defenses against the green "hats". It's missing some details, though.

No semen, cancer, or coffee though (neither of us drink coffee or else there would probably be a lot of it). Some ice. Iced apple cider with mulling spices... yum...

Funny, when I first saw you post in the thread I think I wrote something about how you're "that Uristqwerty", remembering you from the EE thread.



As for factory automation levels, before my coma I travelled back to shortpix since I didn't have the badges from then so I lost my levels too. Rosetta offers them back but not until you have Doublepost.

ETA also I haven't read or heard a sea shanty in recent times, so how is mine structured so similarly to Yappo's? I guess I subconsciously remembered something.

I grumbled about that several times, not that you lost use, but that you have to regain them after you get back. No longer a problem though as I have now been back and harvested all the early badges. First Glass mould now 38.5% complete (For NP524 - not cheap...)

Heresy! Grab the S&Ms... no wait... Burn the Steak at 'im! (we haven't used that one in a long time - heh heh heh heh). We cannot survive the slug invasion by cowering under the false protection of software - that merely lets the slugs slip by unnoticed. We must stand strong, and firm, and face the slugs head on!

(apply directly to the forehead)

This is the time to call in RAZOR, the Molpy Army, the Knights Temporal, the Knights who until recently said "ni ni ni chihuahua ping pong ball!", and the full faith and strength of the entire body of Timewaiters. Aluisio has fallen; we must not let his noble sacrifice go in vain. We must not panic! Stay calm! Everyone must keep their head on!

Yes, it is gruesome and terrifiying to witness the advancing slugs succeed in claiming one otter after the other, but we have faced worse challenges in our time. We survived the Voldeframe; we can survive this. Eternal Density, I call upon you, and upon all Good Otters And Timewaiters, to steel your resolve, to resolve your courage, and to courageously stand up to the scourge of the Green Slimy Slugs. Without us, the thread will be consumed as the slugs claim the otters one by one. Can you imagine the OTT, switched OFF? NO! That cannot be! It mustn't be! But with your help, we will survive. The OTT will remain, if you keep your head, ON!

Thanks! :) I wasn't originally planning on using the shadow, just drawing the whole thing in the sand, but the Time of day gave me the idea.

For decree, I'll quote the cute slugmolpy I found for slinches about a hundred newpages back:

I don't get it, as much as OTTers like puzzles, tax forms should be no problem. Note, I said forms, not the actual taxes, though I will admin to appreciating much of what the various governments I pay for provide. I'm very law-abiding, so it is good to have laws to abide by. In any case, the forms are just a giant puzzle to solve. This year, for my family, very giant, between us we'll file 3 sets of fed taxes, and 5 sets of state taxes.

It really is fun. I love finding the redundakitties, and when I come across an OTCcolored frame I get really excited. Right now I'm getting bag puns, and unlike a certain OTTer who shall not be named (but whose name rhymes with FitzPearl :) ), I love 'em! Can't wait to get to Logicat, which is a silly thing to say 'cause I totally have to wait to get to Logicat.

So, a while ago I thought I would have time to do some blitzing, and I thought I would be schizoblitzing, and I came up with this ottification. I was going to post it when I announced my blitz, but since I don't know when or if that will happen, I'll just post this now.
