SBN is in charge of a number of wolpies, and has to get them organised to go anywhere.

to satisfy our pope...
The next part of the Last Five Newpix:
The Buffygirl Song.
(Based on The Schmuel Song From The last Five Years)
Click Here for the original
Spoiler:
HIM
First, a story. A little Baobob Story.
I call it "The Story of Buffygirl, Haberdasher of OTT"

Buffygirl would work till half-past the Newpix at her haberdasher in OTT
Get up at dawn and start again with the hems and pins and twist
8 whole eras had come and gone at her Haberdashery in OTT
Watching Cuegan soldier on, there was one thing Buffygirl missed

"If I only had time," Buffygirl said
"I would build the Hat that is in my head
A Hat to fire
The mad desire
Of Blitzers from here to Minsk
But I have no more Newpix left to sew"
Then the clock beneathChronosDragon began to glow...

And the clock said:
"Na na na na, na na na
Oh Buffygirl, you'll get to be happy!
Na na na na, na na na
I give you unlimited TIME
Na na na na, na na na
So Buffygirl, go sew and be happy!"
But Buffygirl said
"No, no, it's not my lot
I've gotta make do with the TIME I've got"

Buffygirl was done at half-past Newpix and she said "Molpy Down, oh OTT"
Put on her coat to go, but then the clock cried, "Wait! Not yet!
Even though you're not wise or rich
You're the finest Hatmaker in OTT
Listen up, Buffygirl,
Make one stitch and you'll strange things you’ll see"

But Buffygirl said
"Clock, it's much too late
I'm at peace with life
I accept my fate..."
But the clock said
"Buffygirl! One stitch and you will
Unlock the TIME you've lost!"
So Buffygirl, with reluctance, took her thread
She pulled a bolt of velvet and said
"I should Molpy down, and go to bed
I'm sitting here with talking clocks instead!"

And the clock said:
"Na na na na, na na na
Oh Buffygirl, you'll get to be happy!
Na na na na, na na na,
I give you unlimited time
Na na na na, na na na
Just do it and you can be happy!"

So Buffygirl put the thread through the needle's eye
And the Chirps came down from a starless sky
And she pushed the thread through the velvet black
And she looked, and the Newpix were turning...back

So she grabbed her shears and she cut some lace
As the Newpix moved at a reverse pace
And her fingers flew and the fabric swirled
She built a brim and the lining pearled

Every cut and stitch was a perfect fit
As if Randall Himself were controlling it!
And Buffygirl cried through a rush of rage
"Take me back! Take me back to the very first page!"

And on it went down that silent thread
Till Buffygirl’s hat sat upon her head
And she stretched her arms
And she closed her eyes
And the mornip posts finally started to rise

And the hat she made on that endless night
Was a hat that would make any blitz take flight
Not a swatch, not a skein had gone to waste
Every ribbon and button ideally placed
And sewn into the seams were a thousand newpix of dreams
Dreams that you could feel
Coming real

And that very hat, so the papers swore
Was the Hat that Cuegan eventually wore
On the day they vanished forevermore
To explore the world and understand more
When they knew so little the dip before
the left the sandcastle and with supplies they bore

Plenty have hoped and dreamed and prayed
But they can't get out of Haberdashering
If Buffygirl had been another lurking soul
she'd've looked a lot like you
Maybe it's just that you're afraid to go out an OTTify a thing
Maybe your heart's completely swayed
But your head can't follow through

But shouldn't I want the world to see
The brilliant lurkerss who inspire me?
Don't you think that now's a good time to be
The ambitious freak you are?
Say goodbye to silently lurking a thousand posts
Say hello to the present presents, we like those most!
'Cause I say:
Na na na na na na na na
Blitzer, you get to be happy!
Na na na na na na na
I give you the Great thread of TIME!
Na na na na na na na
Stop lurking and go and be happy!

Here's a stick figure guy and a new molpy
an inquisitor giving chocolate for free
Take a breath
Take a step
Take a chance

Take your time
Have I mentioned todip
How lucky we are
To be in a thread with you?!


ETA even more:

A Wip without OTT
Based on "a Summer in Ohio" from the Last Five Years
Spoiler:
A Summer in Ohio From The last Five Years
HER
I could spend a newpix on the hill
I could build sandcastles in Seville
But it wouldn't be as nice as a wip without OTT
With a gay midget named Karl, who deosn’t understand a word I say

I could watch with Cuegan after dark
Take a walk just on a lark
But it wouldn't be as nice as a wip without OTT
Where I'm staring a chatroom with a "former" stripper and her snake: Wayne

I could have a steambottle full of water for the hills
Cures for all the others’ ills
Pills to make old Lucky purr
I could be in line to be pope for a page
Act like I was wise and sage
Still I'm certain I'd prefer to be going slowly batty
Missing OTT and getting catty

I could shove an ice pick in my eye
I could eat some cake that’s iced with lye
But it wouldn't be as awful as a wip without OTT
Without heresies, tech talk, a molpy hunt or Sea.

I saw the book at Amazon’s bestsellers
Under a banner that said "cool and Recommended"
I stole a look at the preview under the book’s link,
and then I couldn't blink
An outsider, who was with me, got strangely quiet
And he said, "All things considered, I really ought to try it"
So I smile like Mona Lisa, and I lay my Visa down

He wants free, he wants free, but he ain't gonna get freee
I've found my guiding light, I chirp the stars each night
Look at me, look at them
Son of a bitch, I guess I'm doing something right
I finally got something right

No, it's not Nirvana, but it's on the way
I make songs out of every play
Then I'll get on my knees, and pray I can state sop everyone can see:
"I'm never gonna go without OTT"

I could chew on tin foil for a spell
I could get a root canal in hell
But it wouldn't be as swell as this wip is gonna be!
'Cause the torture is just exiting, while I'm trying to get a ping
So hurry up, schmuck, get unstuck and get on the scene

Love,
The midget, the stripper, Wayne the snake, and crazy blitzer 17
That's me!

I was about to say - the last newpixbot post was 12 nopix ago, so we're missing three ONGs

Two, actually.
t1i-0026 was posted at 8:30 UTC (3:30 am EST), t1i-0027 and t1i-0028 were missing (they arrived when the forums were too down for even newpixbot to Wait For It).
t1i-0029 presumably appears in about ¼ nopix, and will be posted by newpixbot half a nopix later, if it isn't ninja'd.

Newpixbot just posted the two missing frames, with a little bit of nudging from my end.

There's no reason, by the way, to wait for newpixbot. The new frames arrive out of GLR knows where on the archive every newnewpixnnp, and it's perfectly fine to post these in the OTT yourselves (if it isn't on strike).

nnp: 1 newnewpix == 4 oldpix

ETA: is that a molpy behind a shrub we're panning towards? Another rabtor, perhaps? Hard to be sure, the panning makes molpy catching difficult.
Here's an animation of the pan so far.

I assume it's not a coincidence that the number for that one is 420.
*shocked* (at both replies) 1. If you ctrl+F5 does that make things better? If you have a slow connection, it may take a while (that will be fixed in a future version). 2. *tsk tsk* lol. I didn't know I was telling people to break the law. ;)

Well, in California, they're trying to make it legal, and in Santa Cruz, it's so prevalent it almost is anyways. But I don't really like it that much, to be honest. And TDO still doesn't work for me. : (

0911: "Emit" is a delicious snack created by the Mighty Baron Randall (MBR), presented as 3099 individual frames each hand-carved into slices of cheese, delivered every hour or "newcheese" by a robot named "newcheesebot" to the place where Emitwaiters hang out - the One True Grocery Store (OTGS). It follows the adventures of two characters, Maggie and Curveball, as they build sand-post-offices by a sea made of fecesteahamgrandmasonfire. When they notice the sea is rising to destroy their post office they embark on a journey to find out why, encountering not-very-impressive bushes or "mehtrees" and little creatures called "comoles", and are attacked by a wolf or "raptordog" named "misfortune". Eventually they meet some guys wearing fedoras who speak a strange language (fedorish), who take them to their huge real post office where they speak to Postmaster Beardo who tells them the sea is rising because the grandmas in it made too many cookies. Maggie and Curveball (collectively "Curgie") then run back to where they live in little igloos with their friends Rabbit and the Fringe Bros. among others. A younger member of the tribe named DenLilla saves them when she rides the waves of cookies on a raft made from Maggie and Curveball's post office. The tribe then ride this "Raftoffice" to safety in a new land of rainbows and unicorns. Then the word "Slutet" appears on the screen. Emitwaiters do not speak of this event and continue hanging out in the One True Grocery Store, carving pictures into other foodstuffs themselves. A game or "hamburger" has also been produced by the emitwaiter Finite Mass called "Post Office Constructor". Other emitwaiters explore the deepest depths of the grocery store in an activity called "Foudreing", named after emitwaiter FoudreFille. There are only a few rules - bad wordplay is punishable by the "Wortspielsäge", and every other Tuesdip is Silly Trousers Dip. They also have Absolutely Vital Kitties
.

This is absolute-ch*irping--ch*rp, can I back up?--abso-ch*ping-lutely wowterful.

Another brave blitzer! I hope the forum m*stard has not dissuaded xer. Thanks for posting, hope to see you in the Now some Time!

While the OTT was away, I molped around for a while with some other OTTers on the Facebook group. Here are some notable excerpts from that conversation (all names OTTer-ified, of course):
Spoiler:
BlitzGirl: I have no idea what Time zone davean is in, but he needs to molpy up ASAP!
yappobiscuits: DAVEANUS SUMMONUS!
yappobiscuits: Hehe. Anus.

mrob: ... the fact that we're getting 503'd immediately implies that davean has found it necessary to block our IP addresses at the datagram level, as he did for China last night... presumably temporary, while he finds a more focussed way to block only the bots and not the humans. Evil bots! No cake for you!
yappobiscuits: Does this mean... The Dip is upon us!?

mrob: In other (molpier) news, my imagebot managed to download all attachments from the first 997 NP of the OTT before this latest mustard started. The last successfully-retrieved image was this one which it fetched about 0.33 nopix ago, i.e. 6:42 AM Randall Standard Time (also mrob standard time): download/file.php?mode=view&id=37415
yappobiscuits: That is molpish news! And a molpish smiley to e** on!
BlitzGirl: That is very awesomeful! Go imagebot!

yappobiscuits: I do like that this comment thread has become a little surrogate OTT while there's m*stard
BlitzGirl: I worry about our non-FB'ed OTTers when m*stard like this happens...adrift in a lonely, seaish internet...
yappobiscuits: Besides, we're allowed to be heretical outside the OTT! ...DAY! HOUR! RANDALL IS A REGULAR HUMAN! *cackles*
BlitzGirl: NOOOOOO! *dumps truckload of candies on yappo*
mrob: No, yappo, baaaaaddd yappo! You must atone for your keresy. I prescribe several newpix of playing metal filk on the ukelele!

HES: well what-if, the comic and the store are the more important parts of the site
BlitzGirl: *scoops candies off of yappo and pelts HES with them*
mrob: Agreed! Sorry BlitzGirl, but without the Store there would be no Forums and without the Forums there would be no OTT. (I really must write that up in King James style someday... Maybe they'll even whip up a Time T-shirt one of these mips ) The store is on yet another IP, undoubetedly hosted somewhere completely different and with more security and rubustness.
BlitzGirl: Yea, though Time is preceded by these structures, it supercedes them, and though the OTT is sustained by their presence, it in turn provides them with sustenance: the company and currency of worshipful OTTers.
mrob: Hmmm... hadn't thought of it that way... I have much to learn
BlitzGirl: We'll have you de-heretic-ified yet!
HES: ow!
mrob: Try to catch some in your mouth. It's oddly satisfying.
HES: I'm already sat in a comfy chair, isn't that enough for you?
yappobiscuits: Pfffth, just got some in my mouth.

mrob: BTW, some imagebot stats: The first 997 Newpages have 1090 attachments containing roughly 108 MiB of data. <snip>
mrob: I actually want the images anyway, just for blitzing. I'm often travelling and have no internet at all, so I blitz in pure ASCII. I got all the OTC frames long ago, and I have almost all the OtherComics, and the attachments were the only thing missing. (If anyone thinks of doing this, please make it sleep a random amount of time, approximately 8-20 millinewpix, between each load. It took me a week to get the entire OTC. Anything faster is not cool.)
BlitzGirl: In other words, Wait for it?
mrob: ... exactly!

balthasar_s: Noo! The OTT is closed and i left my space suit there! I guess I'm not going to spaaace today.
Valarya: Spaaaace needs you, balthasar. And your bike.
lmjb1964: Whoa, how did I miss this whole long thread? You xuys have been busy while the OTT was ch*rped!
mrob: I have been suggesting this, the Wiki, and the "otters" chirpingmustard email as fall-backs for OTTers to stay connected during t̶r̶o̶u̶b̶l̶e̶d̶ mustardy times.
Valarya: ^ - indeed, hence why we made it in the first place. When the Voldeframe happened we weren't sure how many otters we'd lose.
lmjb1964: a bridge over mustardy semencoffeecancerbaconbabiesonice... Hm, not quite as catchy as the original.

TRAINSB ON THE MOON

In our base we use time travel regullarly to get spare parts for our trains from the past and our spaaace ships from the future. How big are dragons?

You have trains? Cool!

We do. Trains are a serious way of relocation on the skycircle. We also use bicycles.
Spoiler:

A railway network that is dense enough will hold the Moon together in case Expando-earth decides to do this. Also, having trains is useful because we no longer have to land our spaceships on earth wich helps at keeping them secret
Spoiler:
Image
Nothing can go wrong with this right?.
We use trains from the pastP: SM42 (1965) and EU07 (1965) because their blueprints were relatively easy to convert to programming files for our Object Generator&. We no longer have our Object Generator because it was destroyed by the impostor pope. Now we use time travel for getting spare parts for the trainsQ. Recently, we discovered a time portal.
Spoiler:
Image
As you can see, on one side there is a road and on othe other side there is no road, becaute this side is in the past, before the road was even built. The past side is in 1983 currently. Which is wherew ChronosDragon originally landed. And that's why I wanted to help. The location of the time portal is secret but I can make an exception for an otterD. The time offset is not very stable and fluctuates a bit. I learned it when I used the portal for the first time and somehow ended up trying to steal my own bike from myself and failed because of being ninja'd by myselfv.

There are some problems with the trains that we didn't expect. There's no air on the Moon. and the brakes are pneumatic and therefore useless. We tried to replace them with some kind of parachutes like those used to brake planes or space shuttles but for some reason they don't want to work... We don't have the no-air problem with our bicycles because we learned to fill our wheels with high-pressurised void and there is a lot of it here.
The second problem is that the railways are not electrified yet. Therefore we have to power our electric engines with batteries. 3kV batteries!
Spoiler:
Image
That's the ideal solution..
Spoiler:
OH NO how did this happen?
Image
Ok, maybe not.

N I noticed that when I post it's not always clear if I'm in my serious mode or if I'm doing such things as this post. If i'm overdoing it and confusing you too much, let me know.

So due to a thunderstorm the power at my house went out (and more importantly, the internet) so I couldn't do any sandcastle work last night. And I couldn't post either. I did stand outside in the cold trying to use the feeble signal to my phone to post but after ten minutes it decided I wasn't actually logged into the fora. So I tried posting to reddit and that failed too: somehow gave me a 404 when I submit. Epsilon. Anyhow I'm here now.

HELP!! I'm at Judgement Dip level 831 (also my area code, btw) and the NPBs are destroying CH*RPloads of castles. My bags are all gone but I don't yet have irregular rivers or nav code. And my numbers are all being spelled out and I can't get the, what's it called, shorter version, whatever. Help! What do I do?

Oh no! I'm not sure what do do about the Judgement Dip or the ladders. But waveney posted this fix for the "stuck in scientific notation" part on github, copy the code and paste in your browser's console:

Code: Select all

function Molpify(number, raftcastle, shrinkify)
{
    if(isNaN(number))return'Mustard';
    if(!isFinite(parseFloat(number)))return'Infinite';
    var molp='';

    if(shrinkify==2)shrinkify=0;
    else if(Molpy&&!shrinkify)shrinkify=!Molpy.options.science;

    if(shrinkify)
    {
        for (var i in postfixes)
        {   
            var p = postfixes[i];
            if(number>=p.limit)
            {
                return Molpify(number / p.divisor, raftcastle,1)+p.postfix[Molpy.options.longpostfix];
            }
        }
    }else{
        if(number==3)return 'Math.floor(Math.PI)';
        if(number==4)return 'Math.ceil(Math.PI)';
    }

    if(raftcastle>0)
    {
        var numCopy=number;
        //get the right number of decimal places to stick on the end:
        var raft=numCopy*Math.pow(10,raftcastle)-Math.floor(numCopy)*Math.pow(10,raftcastle);
        var sraft = Math.floor(raft)+'';
        if((sraft).length>raftcastle)
        {
            numCopy++;
            sraft=''; //rounded decimal part up to 1
        }else if(raft) while(sraft.length<raftcastle)
        {
            sraft='0'+sraft; //needs leading zeroes because it's a number like 1.01
        }
        molp=Molpify(numCopy,0,shrinkify)+(raft?('.'+sraft):''); //stick them on the end if there are any
    }else
    {
        number = Math.floor(number);
        //drop the decimal bit
        var sep = (number+'').indexOf('e') ==-1; //true if not in exponential notation
        number=(number+'').split('').reverse(); //convert to string, then array of chars, then backwards
        for(var i in number)
        {
            if(sep&&i%3==0 &&i>0) molp=','+molp;//stick commas in every 3rd spot but not 0th
            molp=number[i]+molp;
        }
        if(!sep)
        {
            var dot=molp.indexOf('.')+1;
            var exp=molp.indexOf('e');
            molp=molp.slice(0,dot)+molp.slice(dot,exp).slice(0,6)+molp.slice(exp);//truncate after 6 decimal places
        }
    }
    return molp;

I will see what I can do, I am about to Coma, but ED is up (working through the issues in the Hotdog as I type this).

How many of each tool do you have? What is your Sand rate? Roughly how many castles/NP do you get?

75-76 each Sand Tools (except bags, they were all burned). Castle tools: 19 NPB, 32 trebuchets, 28 each waves and scaffolds, 23 rivers. 1.1 M sand per mNP. Thanks, waveney! I don't want to ch*rp up your comas schedule, though.

Oh I was wrong in my PM about LaPetite being the cause of 0 sand from ladders: in your case it's the 0 bags. In either case though, the cause is broken rung. If you have 0 of a tool, then ladder sand rate being 0 is correct.

Sell most npbs, enough to stop the dip. Then buy back some (but not too many) bags, and get a lot more of the other castle tools before provoking the dip. I would get rivers, waves, scaffolds and trebuchets up to 50 ish before provoking it again.

The ladders not producing anything is a consequence of having no bags left.

Thanks, ED and waveney! OK, I bought 15 bags and sold all but 3 NPBs. I'm still at Dip level 48. I just got bag burning. Do I want to buy it?

You guys are awesomeful!

Edited to say: Ch*rp! Another 503, and somehow my post ended up getting posted twice.

At this point it'll likely just burn all your bags again. I recommend you hold out for the other boosts from Judgement Dip first.

Time-Capsule from mrob27, deposited NP757

Postby mrob27 » Thu Nov 21, 2013 11:26 pm UTC

Time-Capsule from mrob27
Deposited: NP757. Do not open until NP1624


nopixbot gathers the Newpages while I Blitz, scanning for the incantation mrob, and each Newpage contains signatures. For the pages that came before I became active in the OTT, I also have @Sciscitor's version collected soon after each page was new.
    Somedix I'll do something with all these sigs, perhaps even make them viewable online for the convenience of Blitzers who are confused by the conversation whenever a sig is mentioned. Most avatars, thankfully, have been preserved by @Sciscitor.
    For now I'll just quote @SBN's sig which serves as a continual reminder that you're all rooting for me up there in the distant future...

The only thing I love more than creating cool stuff, is when others like it! Image You may have noticed that I only recently :roll: figured out how to composite non-rectangular things, such as placing hats (and optional boas!) on the characters in my retrOTTifications. My #622 was partly inspired by this lovely original comic by Dracomax. That was far from being the first OTT comic to involve multiple OTTer characters (for the record, that would be this OTTification of #763 by @lmjb1964 on NP386, followed by @BlitzGirl's Boom-de-Yadas, @HES's whiteboard and @Vytron's Heretical Comics) but for some reason that @Dracomax creation was what got me thinking.

@balthasar_s points out a contradiction in my effort to use "mr*bdex" instead of "mrobdex" to refer to the fightclub. That's precisely the idea! We need to have at least two names for it, in order to avoid being in complete agreement. (Hmmm, that last sentence looks an awful lot like a rule -- we'd better ignore it... or... half of us... or, now I'm confused.)
    ... and @azule reminds us there have been subjects starting with "Re:" but where the rest isn't just a repeat of a previous subject. Yes, indeed, much like rule 34A, if it's possible, then it's somewhere in the OTT and has probably happened multiple times. Maybe someone can provide some stats, but I think the incidence of these "non-Re:dundent 'Re:'"s is fairly low.
    There's never going to be complete agreementC, and it's kind of more fun when the bots are imperfect... but if someone feels like they have a good algorithm they could describe it to me. I'd need it to be implementable in plain Perl with no modules or libraries; an associative array is okay, but I don't want to be performing Markov chain analysis on every subject line (where I defer to @Kieryn).

⍄ ⍄ ⍄ Open All Spoilers Script ⍃ ⍃ ⍃


I have been using my "open all spoilers all the time" script for quite a new Oldpages now (i.e. pages I'm Blitzing) and it's really useful! If you're the type who would always click every spoiler, you might want to try it.
Image

It's in GitHub here and can be installed by visiting:
mrob.com/time/scripts-beta/spoiler-opener.user.js


⍄ ⍄ ⍄ No-Tinytext Script ⍃ ⍃ ⍃


I have been continuing my work on learning JavaScript to ENHANCE!E my Blitzing experience. My "No-Tinytext" script (for GreaseMonkey or TamperMonkey) causes all [sîze] tags smaller than 50% to be changed to a more readable size. This image demonstrates the effect using this post by @k.bookbinder as the example:
Image

It's in the same GitHub as spoiler-opener.user.js, and can be installed by visiting:

Suggestions are welcome; an escalation involving other types of unreadable post content is inevitable :twisted: .

We passed a milestone that Timborme neglected to mention last Chronogram (and rightly so because he doesn't know about it yet! :) ) We reached this NP 719 post, the "late-ONG" that I referred to way back here. But as @mscha attests, the newpix wasn't late a single time between np256 and np1728.

I loved @BlitzGirl's "Fry Sauce Blitzer", and ch*rpin' awefulsome Daft Punk filks by @Eternal Density and @kenmelken

There was also some inspiring commentary on BlitzGirling and on the OTT as a tribe

I am starting to see Christdip references in the OTT, once again almost as if the TimeWaiters (or OTTers from my afterwhen) knew I'd be a-Blitzen here. There was the filk "Most Wonderful Thread on the Net", and then this:
Image


...and then it began... :
Molpy molpy molpy molpy
molpy molpy molpy molpy
grapevine grapevine!


My blitzing was slow for a while, as I noted before, partly due to the Outside, but lately I've been able to focus a bit more, reaching a nearly-Blitzy speed. Wouldn't you know, as soon as that happens the Outside seems to have other ideas...

Image垃圾邮件机器人!


Lately the xkcd fora server has been so sluggish that I also wondered if it might be controlled by Image brraaaaiiinnnnssluuuggssss! Image. It was so mustardy I actually had to add new code to nopixbot to handle the cases in which it gets no data when retrieving a Newpage. I didn't want to deal with it so I left a little haiku signpost.
    I briefly thought it might be the result of the OTT nearing its (216)th post but then remembered that the unhatched molfishes and turlpy-excluding devices thread is even longer (at 2113 pages as I write this bit) and thus any such issue will have already been solved.

We owe a lot to the chief admin of the servers that host our beloved little1 thread, who has only posted seven times in the past yip, most recently to explain the cause of this recent slowness issue. He also graced the OTT with a less-Maddening form of the Madness during the Madness, an exceptional act of good will that I continue to wonder at, and which was an essential influence on the formative evolution of this community that allowed it to become so special and valuable. I do not use his name, not because of the religious allusion (and certainly not to suggest this or this or even this), but because he probably scans for it, in a similar way to how I scan for "mrob", to discover mentions that merit attention.
    Knowing that "great ones" would surely notice the problem and apply their seaish powers to address it, I instead found a slightly different way to Blitz (just keep a couple OldNewPages pre-loaded in tabs) and declared that...

⍄ ⍄ ⍄ It's O̶T̶T̶503ification Time! ⍃ ⍃ ⍃


Yep, another new category! Image (How many is that now?)

During this gruesome "503 mustard" incident, OTTers had to resort to other means of communication, including the FB group, email via chirpingmustard.com, or of course the One True Wiki. I had the typical mrob27 "I should OTTify this!" moment and began making these while I WaitForIt'ed for the server to get a little molpier.

As is probably obvious by the examples below, a "503 manip" or "O̶T̶T̶503ification" is a frame from the OTC modified to include "server" or "503" or something closely related. It's kind of like an "In My Pants" OTCmanip except that the rules for dialogue modification are a little less restricted.

Thanks, the hot chocolate was delicious. Also you owe me $3.50

Uh, what? I owe you $3.50 for giving you hot chocolate? Or is it for the hotdog advice?

So, and this is totally not at all a question which shall have great impact on an upcoming project which also happens to be the reason I need to get back to the present soon, in order to leave it again, because no such project exists.....

Exactl;y how many Government and paramilitary Organizations do we have running around here now? (aside from the NSA. Hi NSA Agent. You got the fun thread to monitor. unlike the poor schmuck who has to monitor those political sites....) It's totally not going to feature in the next project I start or the OTT, not at all....


Except it totally will, so please give me as much information as you can about who is a member of what.

Well, Chronocorp Ltd subcontracts to government agencies in several timelines, but as far as I know they have no interest in this thread. They're more interested in the economic value of extratemporal chronon energy farming.

Well that's how much I paid for the hot chocolate, so if you give me $3.50 to pay for it, it's equivalent to giving me the hot chocolate.

So far I'm keeping it to only a few HotChoc per week

It's Hotdog Time!

Code: Select all

## 3.13
- Now you can call Molpify like this: Molpify(someNumber, decimalPlaces,2) and it won't apply all the letter prefix things, regardless of your game's scientific notation setting
- The 'enough chips for making blocks' check was backwards all along
- Changed Broken Rung condition: for instance while 6000 bags bought will make LaPetite visible (unchanged), 6000 bags *owned* is needed for 0 LaPetite to affect Broken Rung
- New Badge for beginners to teach about waiting for the ONG
- Also extended the description of Castle Price Rollback badge
- Added google analytics to track pageviews.  Let me know if that is a terrible idea
- BKJ power level moved to display on stats rather than description
- Also improved BFJ description/stats a bit
- Nerfed Blast Furnace a little pre-BFJ (was limited to total castles built /2, now it's /3) but buffed it with BFJ (was /10, now /5)
- So Blast Furnace with BFJ (and Blitzing) is still more limited by the total castles built than otherwise, but if your total castles built is huge then it's better than without (i.e if you've used Molpy Down you can potentially catch back up faster)
- Blast Furnace with Blitzing without BFJ is twice as effective as without Blitzing, which is unchanged from before but I just thought I'd mention it.
- Fixed Tool Factory giving things it shouldn't: I forgot to copy a condition


ETA
The cybernetic guineamolp requests (through dead Meg-a-like who calls (under my modern pointer nowhere near anything), and clicks (close to the overbearing wallapy who must have been zanclean ratpyish yet amazing), and often decyphers your quick firefly) the most golden person in ????

0911: "Emit" is a delicious snack created by the Mighty Baron Randall (MBR), presented as 3099 individual frames each hand-carved into slices of cheese, delivered every hour or "newcheese" by a robot named "newcheesebot" to the place where Emitwaiters hang out - the One True Grocery Store (OTGS). It follows the adventures of two characters, Maggie and Curveball, as they build sand-post-offices by a sea made of fecesteahamgrandmasonfire. When they notice the sea is rising to destroy their post office they embark on a journey to find out why, encountering not-very-impressive bushes or "mehtrees" and little creatures called "comoles", and are attacked by a wolf or "raptordog" named "misfortune". Eventually they meet some guys wearing fedoras who speak a strange language (fedorish), who take them to their huge real post office where they speak to Postmaster Beardo who tells them the sea is rising because the grandmas in it made too many cookies. Maggie and Curveball (collectively "Curgie") then run back to where they live in little igloos with their friends Rabbit and the Fringe Bros. among others. A younger member of the tribe named DenLilla saves them when she rides the waves of cookies on a raft made from Maggie and Curveball's post office. The tribe then ride this "Raftoffice" to safety in a new land of rainbows and unicorns. Then the word "Slutet" appears on the screen. Emitwaiters do not speak of this event and continue hanging out in the One True Grocery Store, carving pictures into other foodstuffs themselves. A game or "hamburger" has also been produced by the emitwaiter Finite Mass called "Post Office Constructor". Other emitwaiters explore the deepest depths of the grocery store in an activity called "Foudreing", named after emitwaiter FoudreFille. There are only a few rules - bad wordplay is punishable by the "Wortspielsäge", and every other Tuesdip is Silly Trousers Dip. They also have Absolutely Vital Kitties.

OMMBR, oppaycrackers. I want that alternate reality to exist! So much awesomefulness. :D

Oppaycrackers XD. I love it!

Ohhh! I always presumed SBN actually had pet duckpies as well as wolpies whenever she talked about webfooted raptors. Never realised it was just a saying. Silly molpy...

Only five lonely figures
Speak the language o' Cueball
Odd, transient creatures
Taught by the one above all

Oscar, the first, walks away
Fourteen times, not more nor less
He can help you keep what you seek at bay
But only if you keep track of that index


ALYLW 3


Charlie, the next, the eleventh step
Tells you by whom, and when it was said
Maybe you need to fall from his web
So just hold on, and don't be afraid


BIUGU 4


Juliet the one, the glorious one
No move, no sound, it comes from her
She knows if it's dark, if there's moon or no sun
The frame of beyond, a reference becomes


AJPWM 5


Five alphas guard the place
O' the null, the zero, the empty of ways
Twenty-five more make the maze
Please be careful, see what they say
