HES, what's an MTA (and those other 3-letters), besides the Municipal Transit Authority? Found the answer in my head: Mobile Time Accessor.

Aluisio, loving the story so far. Mysterious is your style and I'm glad to see it.

Can't wait to see/hear taixzo's first movement....eh, the music kind. ;) Sorry...that was inappropriate.

Cool, balthabuddy is Ebonics, too.

I was looking through my first posts (and there was some neat noteable things I noted (but I might not be the first, it could just look that way)) and I've decided I'm joining the davean cult. So instead of OMR, it'll be OMd (never to be capitalized btw), and all that. 'Cuz why not, daveandammit! ;)

Oh, what the hell, here's a mini blitz report minus the surrounding context of other posts (except for quotes): azule-edition: spoilered:
Spoiler:
  • In my first post I used a spoiler for possibly offensive content and not just to say "Wait for it."
  • My first post contains a "Ha!", and is my first lol-like interjection in the OTT. I did not append my thought with a literal 'lol' until two dips later. But, yes, you are all right to pin that on me. :oops:
  • azule wrote:I'm betting this will be a "touching" comic, and will not have any wacky twist ending.
    My first prediction turned out to be correct (while subsequent predictions became less and less correct). Um, correct if you consider "touching" to mean adventure and discovery and mystery....
  • azule wrote:I guess if it's long enough, a little silliness in the middle wouldn't ruin the sincerity.
    Also was true. The frog face plant and facebug being two instances.
  • azule wrote:It sorta feels like we have (been passively forced to) come together to bond over this mystery.
    I remember noting this in the Future-Present, question is, was I the first to note it?
  • azule wrote:Maybe this can become the longest on-topic thread on the fora.
    It is, isn't it? (If you can count all of our off-topics as RELATED...)
  • ternarybit breaksdown the Javascript here: pastebin.com/RKDtWYiB
  • My first ONG was on Tue Mar 26, 2013 6:32 pm UTC, with the comment "She's doing some gutter work" which was met with a sexual innuendo. This proves that all the dirty minds are yours and I was just being perfectly innocent. It's true!
  • On Wed Mar 27, 2013 7:57 am UTC I note that I don't have a way of identifying the frame I refer to, probably due to the ni ni ni frame number standards being on the horizon or too new for me to notice. By Friday I use one of the frame standards (I've always used mscha's, so, probably that one?)
  • The same dip I mention that we can create threads in the rest of the fora for other topics. It's too bad that the Sadness came and the mods thought that we weren't into that...
  • The same dip I mention "catch up" (what's that?) and my gender (which was confused in the Future-Past).
  • The next dip, the first "blind post" with added "lurker" component. Lurkreplies is something I called my replies later on during my Zanclean Zodiac period. They're basically the same...and always have been connected. :)
  • I praise davean and 12 hours later I note that I have a new title ('Saved').
  • I named one of the first divisions, but it never got used:
    azule wrote:Finally caught up!!! Just in time for the era of "Still Fucking Confused".
    LMAO ;)
  • I refer to 'newspeak' on Mon Apr 01, 2013 8:20 am UTC where I'm referring to 'newpix' (or was it 'longpix'?)
  • I mention "ninjas" on Mon Apr 01, 2013 7:01 pm UTC, but was it already mentioned...or was I first? (Yeah, I'm not checking any of these, sorry.)
  • I mention Grow Cube, which was just thinking about again...and I mention it because I think it would super neat to OTTify that. I'm not that good with Canvas, anyone up for some coding or image-making?
  • My first first-hand pervertedness is on display on Mon Apr 01, 2013 10:48 pm UTC. Eh...I shouldn't help you xuys know this stuff. :P
  • azule wrote:Probably still slow because: 1) newpix are slow; 2) people were exhausted keeping up last week and now it feels more like a wait til the end comes situation than a "The end is Nigh" situation; 3) Needs more penis jokes?
    See here? We can't do anything about newpix (aside from TAT), and we can't do anything about the way time feels when we transition from one time period to another...but there is always penis jokes. Here's one: I think Cueball should be renamed One-Eyed Willy. You know, due to his head looking a bit like one eye...
  • Oh, it looks like the "dead horse" incident might be the first period of punning, pre-Blitzaggen.
  • azule wrote:Legend be told that the uncrenelated will be crenelated by the bald one. And, yay, prophecy was fulfilled.
    No one, not even me, emulated this style. Legend foretold that Thus Ends would surpass this style by 400-fold. ;)
  • Okay, I stop here, within these 120 posts I perused, and do not find an ONG word. Well, this was a tangent. I would like to consume tangential tangerines. Can someone help me figure out how to make those exist?


Note to mrob: I've been playing Q04B a lot more at a time now. You win. :P I guess it's because I'm starting to figure out a strategy. Oh, no, not a winning one, just a one. I'm getting a sort of Tetris zen going on (though, I am pretty damn good at Tetris, so that be a bit different). Thanks for the Offline App mode. It helps knowing I can get back to it and therefore that there's a point in thinking of playing...then, I actually do. Hah!

ucim wrote:The attributive noun applied to "word play", but not "play on words".
Is it possible that there is no such definition, but a possible retrodef due to rearranging "word play" into its sister order? It's the same process that we do with "a white house" becoming "a house that is white" or "thumb wrestling" becoming "wrestling with thumbs", but where "word play" existed and the other did not. "Word play" would be similar to "sex play" and "bicycle play" (do not mix these two at home), and the inverse of these would be "playing with sex" and "playing with bicycles", would they not? "Playing with words" sounds like the actual correct inverse...someone silly just made up "play on words" and it was probably a proto-OTTer. ;)

Found out what StratPlayer was up to. Got inspired. First entry written successfully. Decided to restrict the format. Kept going.
Oh, so they're all in 50 word chunks? I didn't know that. Neat! (I like the chunk better than the entire story being within those 50 words...it really doesn't feel like a story but an outline at that point.) Note: did a work count...it's more than 50. *shrug* I didn't figure it out...this time!

bałthasar_w wrote:yappobiscuits wrote:
Did y'all know the Polish word for monkey is "malpy"?

It's "małpy".
Polish 'Ł' is not 'L' and is read more like English 'W', not 'L'.
But in this case wouldn't it be pronounced essentially the same? (ma'pee, mawpee, where they both "have" a trailing 'w' on the first syllable, which is actually silent and just tells us how to pronounce the 'a'.) My English might be different than yours. My English might be different than my English. Malpy małpy malpy małpy malpy małpy malpy małpy malpy małpy malpy małpy...

NoMouse wrote:"Malpa" (with regular 'L'), plural "malpy" is also a Czech word for capuchin monkey. I didn't know that it means just "monkey" in Polish but the words are most likely somehow RELATED. :wink:
Thanks for pointing this out. I think this proves my point a little. The point that the l/ł distinction is not that important and that it's probably just for the sake of identifying vowel pronunciations.

taixzo wrote:I am creating a new frame numbering system, where dialog frames get a few duplicates each.
Why are you doing that? Is your system based on showing a frame for a second (not sure what amount as I've yet to see the vid as I write this) and therefore longer showings require more redundancy? Hah, yours is not only a redundant standard but has many redundancies itself. hehe.

BlitzGirl, for your next google-fu, please return with grapevine variations (or as I regularly misplell it: gravepine (which is, btw, a type of tree that only grows it's roots in the foot of a grave, heheheheh...I'm clever ;) )). For the revised video it would include pictures (or caricatures) of these girls.

Good question. Flood would be be like paper, in that your fingers would extend out, but separated like the iconic water symbol. Molpy would be unlike any traditional hand symbol. It would be hiding amongst one of the other two symbols. Like, maybe the thumb is poking through the flood symbol a little or the pinky is out a little on the rock symbol. Ni ni ni I'm a dork-a-saurus rex.

Disclaimers and redundancy:
Spoiler:
I do not actually know what ggh looks like. Sorry if the hair choice is offensive. I went with short and frazzled (due to all the hair pulling out). We say "short leash" here in America. Saying "chain" conjures up ownership...which I'm sure you wouldn't dispute (that she owns you). Oh yeah, I might have forgotten, for sure, which gender Little Wonder was, but that was girl hair. I know that you must own an awesome home computer setup, hence the crazy thing attached to the wall. It won't fall on the young ones 'cause it's bolted in. That is all.

And in one of my recent posts. Google, to answer your other question, if that's what you meant, which it probably isn't.

For decree: I used to have OtherComics littered around my walls, but never put them up when I moved Oop North. I do have a pile of them in the corner, though. It does contain my STA (that's Seaish TimeAccessor; See also MTA and RTA) and therefore all my OTTifications, redundantly on a couple of drives. The first physical OTTifact in this house is (hopefully) on its way from the other side of the world.

Oh, and there's that whiteboard thing I did. The whiteboard is here, but the OTTers aren't.

No hamply either.

ETA: I realise that I just described how my room isn't ottified, rather than following the decree. It's riverish and, as a result, zancleanly messy. It's in two rows:

Wall-Comatable-TimeAccessor-Window-Outside
Door-ZancleanMess-Hatstorage-Wall-Outside

Postby ergman » Wed Jun 11, 2014 10:55 pm UTC

My room is a big ole mess, with a double ( :?: ) bed in the middle, and a desk with a TimeAccessor on it. I don't own any physical OTT object, but quite a few are stored on the laptop. Then there's a riverish TV that I never use and a seaish bookshelf. The room is not very related, unfortunately, and I think I was too late to the magnet party, so I'll have to spruce it up somehow.

I'M IN UR KETCHUP, WAITING FOR UR KETCHUP

Postby mrob27 » Thu Jun 12, 2014 1:31 am UTC

第三章


(chapter 2)

The soothing sound of the chanting, the prayers of the pilgrims, continues to resonate across the courtyard. After a short while another pilgrim emerges and sees Morobu. "We are told that the most reverent ucim can see us, and will perhaps even speak to us! We have only to Wait here in the courtyard!"
    Morobu is excited by this, and redoubles his Waiting in earnest. A newpix or so later, another pilgrim has emerged. All sit and Wait.
    As the sun reaches its highest point Morobu begins to long for the shade of the nearby woods, and the joys of discovery. He wants to continue his journey. He begins to approach the corner where a path clearly leads through these woods and on towards the mountain.
    Suddenly another pilgrim shouts out. "Fellow pilgrim of Searchfu! We must Wait here! Do not stray off these paving-stones for even a moment!"
    Morobu looks off into the woods: cedars, the occasional stone, a little stream with some moss — maybe some bamboo in the distance. Nothing at all frightening. "I don't get it."

地震 (earthquakes)!
火山 (volcanoes)!
津波 (tsunamis)!
台風 (typhoons)!
not to mention the
巨大モンスター (giant monsters with radioactive laser eyes)
and 飛行ロボット (flying robots that shoot ice-missiles)

These are the calamaties that befall a would-be apprentice
who exits the courtyard during the Waiting!
He must remain, and Wait for the great ucim
even as the great master himself did in his Time!


Morobu sits down again. "All right, I get it. I shall Wait for it."



This is the last of my

The entire board went UP, a cueball dropped in the middle of the bottom row, and the board went down again.

Yes, indeed if Lucky finds himself in a position from which Up is the only legal move, then higher forces intervene, and raise everything up. Likewise, if your move preference is set to up (so you're building against the top) and the only valid move is down, Lucky will move down. Here are two saved games that demonstrate this:

Move Preference set to Up, but only available move is Down


The other day, I had to clear my cache and cookies (because Google no longer lets me log in to youtube in order to correct it's "error" of putting me on the youtube announcement lists, as if I want to know what Google wants me to watch!). That pulled all the placeholders out of my missal. I keep a set of save strings so it was no biggie, but be warned!

Yes, good point. I've already put a warning about that in the newly-created page about the caching system. I'll add a warning to Options & Info near the Import/Export and Console Log area. I'll try to find another place to put a warning: any suggestions?
    Q04B doesn't use cookies, it uses localStorage, but that usually gets cleared when you erase your cookies (in some browsers it refers to "cookies and data" or some other term). localStorage is just a newer alternative to cookies, that avoids actually sending data across the internet: the JavaScript loads into your computer and runs, and gets the saved game data locally. The fact that it plays when you're offline depends on that.

mrob wrote: If someone tries to get a file at the same moment my bots are sending a new version of that file to the webserver, they might get a completely empty "file".

I never thought of that happening. (Just if someone got one new file version and no its new dependency version too.) I wonder if you can configure the server to refuse to serve that file until the new version is finished uploading.

Apache and SFTP would need to cooperate somehow. I think the way the pros do it is to just use redundancy: run two servers, and update the files on the server that's not currently serving (then switch 'em, and update the other one).
    @AluisioASG proposed a fairly good solution (in my ketchup-future, but my nopixbot saw his reply), and if the problem extended across all the files I might consider doing that. But I've found that the HTML5 applicationCache thing works pretty well, now that I understand that the manifest needs to be changed last. In fact, I'm updating the manifest simultaneously with two little files that contain a version number, and it was only those version-number files that had this problem. I solved the problem by using redundancy in the version-number files (that's why there are two of them). The JavaScript now happily deals with either of them being empty. Happy REDUNDANCY is lucky redundant!

I usually tile six shell sessions, which doesn't cover the whole screen so I can have a few more around the edges that are easy to get with a click. All are 80 columns wide, and that's my standard width for everything I create and look at. In rare cases (such as the RHTF-formatted output of the OTT) I use 132 columns. Most windows are at least 50 lines high.

I wonder which Pastpost got deleted... oh well. ...

I sort of posted about that... here (NP1715) is my summary of the server mustards, and here (NP1734) is my list of recent firstposts that were delayed by moderator approval (and note my comment that I had seen a spam message).
    Your observations coincide with two big mustards, a Image Image Image on NP1622 and a Image Image Image Image on NP1623; and the firstpost by kitnoki that was delayed all the way until NP1628. None of this explains goating, but it's enough to make me suspect that something else odd was going on. The server was under intense attack by bots that try to create accounts and then use them to post spam messages to the fora; the tireless efforts of moderators are all that kept us from seeing said messages more often. So I suspect the goating is because of a deleted spam message.

ggh, I already came across brekkie, cuppa, footy, and stubbies here in Australia. According to this list, there's a whole bunch more. Funnily enough, "stubbi" is also the word in my local German dialect for a similarly-sized and -shaped bottle of beer.

We've also got sunnies, cozzies and mozzies. (sunglasses, swimming costumes, and mosquitoes).

Also I found something related:

Interestingly, the first thing I think of when told to look for innuendo in that phrase involves guts and a knife. Chronicle of a Death Foretold (my first GGM book, BTW), maybe? Or, given “gutter work”, Hannibal (as in “prepping [some animal's] guts”)?

The connection in my parents' home has been getting worse every time I came here. Nominal speed was 1 Mbit/s (125 kB/s); real speed this April was 20 kB/s, and for the last week had been 10 kB/s. The provider said there was nothing they could do; it seems they even stopped billing us for it. Just a handful hours ago we switched to a local ISP and so far it seems to be delivering full speed (I still need to get a SIMET report though).

But still, if I ever want to get to that level again, I just have to tether my phone.

My computer is now set up sort of like that! I just finished building it. Except, it's attached to the ceiling instead of the wall, and the screen and keyboard fold down when I need to use them. (And I didn't consider flexibility when designing it, so the whole thing wobbles when I type. Oops. :oops: )

I just moved into a new room, which is currently rather empty. I've removed furniture and wallpaper; next step is to paint it a new color, perhaps this wipend. Current color frontrunner is something seaish (blue) but that might change after looking at more samples.

    a. I really hope flipping poles is quick. I assume that during the flip there is temporary no magnetic field and that would mean:
      1. No satellites. They get fried during the first dip.
      2. Outside means factor 10,000 sunscreen or skin cancer.
    b. I really hope flipping poles is slow. That way we can enjoy the aurora borealis everywhere.
    c. North up isn't the only logical conclusion of the way a compass works. The first compasses, the Chinese Si Nan, pointed south. Just as useful if you are used to it.
    d. I would hazard a guess that the Beanies use north up maps because we use north up maps. Most current GPS and paper maps will be gone by the year 13K but future maps will be made in the same style as current ones: north up. Besides, there are maps that have been carved in stone (decoratively). Those will last a few centuries. Maybe sufficient to keep the map style that way, which means the new maps that have been carved from stone will also be made north up, and so forth.

Maybe life's too busy, I muse, and time too finite. Maybe with this and that and important things and necessary measures there's just not enough time to go there, to do anything of worth. Maybe I'm not in control.

Maybe I'm wrong about everything.

Worse, maybe I'm right about something.

So why am I still making them like a crowded, dark warehouse in urban china makes mobile phones?

A psychologist of dubious wisdom and middling age once remarked that the central conflict of a teenage life is "Identity vs. Role Confusion." Why do I always view myself as an exception?

I haven't gotten more than 7 hours of sleep in a night in 3 weeks, which doesn't sound so bad, but the deficit builds up.

Unsolicited advice:
Spoiler:
This thinking is one of the ways into wisdom IMHO. Not everyone is smart enough to think about their own limits and possibilities.
"Nobody starts out special" is good to know and mostly true¤. However, you became special since then. Your path, even the steps you took but have never thought of, makes you especially suitable for something. You just need to find what that is.
Go into the wide world. Make mistakes. Learn from them. Have a job you decide isn't it so you can decide what IS it. What aspects of a job are important to you is something you can only learn when it is lacking.
Don't be afraid to make mistakes. Be afraid not to learn from them.

As I was playing Spore, I watched in satisfaction as my ships ravaged the last of the remaining empire's colonies. Smirking, I sped to their home planet and purchased it for §1,000,000 (a small sum, as my purple spice planets proliferated profit). As the empire dissolved into the night, I was alone.

I was alone.

Bummer to hear about the apathy-life-mustard, ChronosDragon. It happens to the best of us now and then. I personally presumed that you were busy with the school/work transition, and would be otting with us again as Outside things settled down. This mip seems to be a mip of journey or transition or other Outside activity for many, so it's not unusual to see people going quiet for a wip or two (and then hopefully resurfacing). The sea of the Outside is very, very big.

And just because we don't mention our basementees and other absent OTTers doesn't mean we aren't thinking of them or missing them. Especially when the needle-pulled thing's rate of posts is slow, I remember names and avatars that used to molpy about in here. :( I hope some of them are still lurking, or might drop in to post again some Time. It's epsilon to see the thread go on without you (as happened to me while I was moving), and maybe even sad, but it's actually a molpish thing, because that means the community is still a living one and will be there for you when you return.

WE'RE GONNA NEED A MORE SEAISH OTTERMOLPY

is significantly different in that regard compared to Windows. On both, with a bit of experience, you'll learn how to anticipate and avoid most major problems. The biggest difference is that you're more likely to find a solution online for your exact Windows problem, but if you can't you're up a radioactive creek without a raftcastle. Whereas in Linux you'll find pre-prepared solutions less often, but nearly always have the tools/info to find your own solution (given enough time and interest). And Linux will continue to get better at having "canned" solutions as long as usage continues to increase.
[/soapbox]
It's definitely true that Linux...
Spoiler:
gives you a powerful set of diagnostic tools and potential work-arounds. If something fails, even if it's a GUI application, running it from the terminal usually makes it spew out helpful information. If you can't diagnose the problem from that, you can attach a debugger and get more info. Then there's the possibility of looking at the source code to see where the hitch is. If you can't figure it out, the community is generally very helpful (provided you help them to help you, e.g. by starting with specifying exactly what fails instead of just stating "it nuh wuk"). If you still can't solve the problem, most programs have multiple alternatives.

Othercomic 456 is quite true as well, but the advantage is that every time you move up that ladder, you learn skills that make solving further problems easier. I myself have used Gentoo for quite a few yips now, and once you get it to work, most problems you'll encounter will be quite easy to solve. What you get in return for the effort of learning how to use it is a system that can be adapted to fit every need you might have. To a certain extent, other distributions can do that as well, but the "sensible" defaults chosen by them make it very easy to just ignore or quietly accept minor quirks and flaws, whereas Gentoo's "learn or die" model makes it easier to say "I want it this way and you will obey me". Back when I used Windows, I could scarcely imagine a system with that flexibility. When I started using Linux, I found out that it's possible to have an OS that works with you instead of bossing you around. It wasn't until after I got Gentoo working that I realised I could be in complete control of my system, and it doesn't even take a seaish amount of experience and a formal CS education to get to that point.

Relatedly, my new organised sand should arrive next wip. I'm looking forward to installing Gentoo again. There's a lot of new tech I haven't worked with yet: GPT, UEFI, SSDs, btrfs... I'm also going to attempt to turn a very ancient organised sand into a router and VPN server this summer, which means more dunejumpish things to learn!

And with that, I molpy down.
I kinda regret being in the basement mucking around with Linux distros which unbeknownst to me, this conversation was ongoing.
(Mint 17 RC is pretty cool, though I had some weird glitches running it in a VM.)
I had a lot of difficulty running a Live USB: I eventually figured out how to make it run in failsafe graphics mode and then was able to get into the GUI successfully, where I could make it use actual NVIDIA graphics drivers. Steambottle.
Now I'm trying to upgrade from 13.10 to 14.04 and I'm having... issues. Or maybe it just takes a lot longer than I expected, but surely even a 900MB .tar.gz shouldn't take several hours to extract. Epsilon.


Sorry for pretending I'm participating in a discussion that was over many dips ago.

ETA
more molpishly, I just returned for a riverish walk up my local hill, upon which I saw the sun set. (I actually happened to look at the very moment the sun vanished below the horizon.) Anyhow, I was wearing my new glasses (I acquired my first subscription yesterdip! I've been short sighted in one eye for a lONG time but never bothered to do anything about it before.) And seeing the sun reflecting pinkorange off the clouds very nearly overhead in actual 3D for the first time I can remember was very wingish! Basically my glasses are like 3D glasses: I can see fine without them but since one eye is fuzzy (which I don't really notice) I don't see any real 3D detail. So yeah it's pretty amazing and has brought me happiness.

WOW - SO RAPTORCAT - MANY MOUNTAINISH - SUCH CHIRPING - VERY VITSSÅGEN - MUCH TREEISH - HAIL RANDALL

Also I like how the userscript means I don't have to manually get a subject line anymore :D Though maybe I kinda miss it too.
It was mrob27 who added the Doge meme; I just copied it. The user script is unfortunately still somewhat mustardy; it doesn't change the subject line when you quote someone, for example.

Regarding Linux and the like: I've assembled my new organised sand and am currently installing Gentoo on it. It took many newpices to even get it to boot properly, because apparently, Gigabyte motherboards have an extremely mustardy UEFI implementation. I also couldn't get GRUB2 to work, so I ditched it in favour of rEFInd, but then I had to deal with even more EFI mustard. Anyway, now that it boots, I'm building my Gentoo configuration. I've rebuilt everything with GCC 4.8, the Gold linker, and LDFLAGS=-Wl,--as-needed. I also have / and /usr on two SSDs using btrfs RAID1. All of that combined, plus the fact that I have an octacore processor and 16GB of PC3-14900 MALESHEEPY (such an awesomeful word that I'm stealing it!), means I have a ridiculously raptorcattish system.

Regarding glasses: I remember the first time I got glasses and being able to see birds in the sky. That was baobabish!

Anyway, another announcement:

AUTOMOME 2.1 RELEASED


This seaish update brings:
  • 6 new memes
  • Some additional vocabulary
  • A few riverish changes to existing vocabulary

1190.bicyclesonthemoon.dnsd.info started working again. Just when I lost all hope. But I'm still going to get a real domain somewhere in the not-so-far-away-future.

The worst exam week is over. Now back to blitzing.

azule wrote:But in this case wouldn't it be pronounced essentially the same? (ma'pee, mawpee, where they both "have" a trailing 'w' on the first syllable, which is actually silent and just tells us how to pronounce the 'a'.) My English might be different than yours. My English might be different than my English. Malpy małpy malpy małpy malpy małpy malpy małpy malpy małpy malpy małpy...
[...]
Thanks for pointing this out. I think this proves my point a little. The point that the l/ł distinction is not that important and that it's probably just for the sake of identifying vowel pronunciations.
In the Polish word "małpy" and not only:
L/Ł is important. If you use L instead of Ł in Polish you will be understood but you'll sound wrong. Although I know at least one example when replacing the Ł with L in a word completely changes the meaning making it nsfw. Pronounciation of vowels is not affected by conosants. Each vowel has one way of pronouncing it. I know only one exception from this rule (ETA: more than one). And we don't have "silent conosants" (that's why "Balthasar" is a wrong spelling of my name).
But still, with all what I said; when I heard someone saying "Małpy, małpy, małpy." you know what my first thought was . . .

Pope: room?
I have a room under the roof. In summer I have to cover my window with 3 layers of bedsheets to block the sunlight, otherwise it gets too hot there. I have a a long thin (about 15cm) horizontal row of wall directly under the roof. A perfect place for a panorama. I must do it somewhere in the future. You can see the room in the film.

Let's hear it for acuity happiness!

I was born myopic. Really myopic. It wasn't discovered until I was eight years old, because in close-up, I had eyes like a microscope. The day I got my glasses, I came home and looked at the tree outside my bedroom window. I saw leaves! I'd never seen leaves, just a greenish blur. That picture is eidetic now, sixty years later.
I had a deja vu experience three years ago, when I was operated on for cataracts in both eyes. (One eye is very mis-shapen and the anesthetic needle couldn't quite deliver what it should have done, so I could see the scalpel cutting my eye. (You may now shudder. (It was so worth it.))) Anyhow, there simply are not words to describe my first look at the world after the first operation. On second thoughts, yes, there are. Bright. Light. Sharpness. Details. Accuracy. Living.
I relate seaishly to your happiness.

Huh. Deja vu. See what I (in a totally non-punsawishly way) did there?

I fell for the trick of:
1. Install Mint alongside Win7
2. Decide that's not working how I want and delete the Mint partition to replace it with Ubuntu
3. GRUB2 was actually looking for it's config data in the Mint partition: no Windows!
4. Attempt to fix EFI m*stard to to forget GRUB2 and just load windows (booting to live USB was unaffected of course so I could still look stuff up)
5. Attempts failed so I just installed Ubuntu and hoped (with a fairly high degree of confidence) that this would just fix everything
6. It did :D

Also, this was clearly written by the department of redundancy department who wrote it. Steambottle!

SchizoBlitz Report #13
This report is brought to you by the number 150.

Been a little over a wip since my last report, but I have actually made some progress this time (about 50NP worth, at my count).

I'm really liking the idea of wipend puzzles. I like the fact that they're chronicled on the Wiki even more, since that means I can go back and do them at my leisure after my Blitz. I have been double-checking the list the last few dozen NP, to ensure that the Wiki isn't missing any, and so far it has been good. Except for ED's "Seven OTTish Words" game from NP1605-1606, so I did those to the best of my ability (though I'm apparently not very good, there were a couple where I could only figure out about half).

I'd totally forgotten about that minihotdog! I wonder if i still have the javascript I made to help generate those...

What I'm trying to say is that I'm in a critical period right now. Nothing extreme is happening in my personal life, at least, nothing outside of my head. I haven't been on the thread much lately because of school and programming and games and apathy. I came back, and in the five pages that had passed over 4 or so days, I saw no mention of myself. For some reason, this sent me into crisis. I'm almost done with school, just have a few finals to take care of, I lost a meaningless election that I didn't even want to win, and I backed my car into my grandparents' rental car at 5mph, but caused enough damage to allow the rental car company to extract teeth. I haven't gotten more than 7 hours of sleep in a night in 3 weeks, which doesn't sound so bad, but the deficit builds up.

I don't want anyone to feel sorry for me or give me advice, but I thought it best to explain myself. Even if it's not necessary.

I'm not leaving, I'm just rethinking. I have 5 days between school ending on the 18th and job on the 23rd. Maybe I'll do something interesting with my limited autonomy.

I will say that I definitely thought about you, but I've been doing a lot of writing posts and then deleting them instead of posting them.
But I was talking with my daughter about a wolpy named Drago, so you and our other OTTish dragons came to mind. Oh, and I think it was you that first posted about Daily Science Fiction, and I'm working my way through that.

It's too early in the year, but this summer you should go to Jetty Island and build a sandcastle.
