ggh "2718-21" - Wow. That's how it should have always been. Kinda like how the SilentONGs had the realistic drawings.

BlitzGirl on a ghost rampage - hehe.

Ooh, neat, another person to thank. Thanks, SilentTimer's <3. You're >3 in my book. hah!

ST wrote:Yes and no. Yes, Latent22, Waveney, azule and others made steakish and inspiring sequels to Time, too. However t1i is not a sequel to the Beanie story, but it lives in a timeline of its own.
No to your yes. But first, thanks for including me in that list, but again, embarrassed. Mine might be considered along the lines of a prequel. Actually it was set in the middle of Time, with story telling obviously covering before/during/after Time. I don't know how to sum that up. *wanders off to sit in the corner*

ST's sig - Followed and I see that the "discussion" begins immediately after my post. Therefore I had the last post before the SilentONG period. Let the arbitrary celebration begin! ;)

Decree following (last page): Speculation: There is exactly one frame with a blue penis. Exactly one pixel in a strategic place. I think it's on a Beanie. Time for some tiny text: Don't fault me for this. It's funny. A one pixel penis. If the rest of y'all would make these jokes then I wouldn't have to. :P

If you read this sig, post about one arbitrary thing you did today.

Thanks, but my choice of species was more by accident than evidence-based, so I remain ninja'd. I am not sure we have enough information to choose between the Anniella genus and the Anguis genus, and I suppose there are other genuses (geni?) in the family. The following article might help: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1 ... x/abstract but I mention it only because the terminology is so difficult that I find it funny. It is like trying to read the OTT after some time in the basement.

By the way, I googled Oracle Bird and came up with a team of female super-heroes, Birds of Prey, created (organized?) by computer expert Oracle and martial artist Black Canary...

Weird, but feels a little related anyway.

mikrit wrote:I am not sure we have enough information to choose between the Anniella genus and the Anguis genus,
Anniella live in California, USA. Anguis fragilis lives almost everywhere in Europe except on the Mediterranean islands. This means that in the next 10000 yips either a couple of Anniella will cross the USA and swim over the Atlantic1, or a couple of Anguis will crawl over the meadows from Italy to Asinara.

Since BlitzGirl has finished Occam using his own razor, we cannot tell which of both will happen.

However,
Wikipedia wrote:Like many other lizards, slow worms autotomize, meaning they have the ability to shed their tails to escape predators.
[…]
The female often has a stripe along the spine and dark sides, while the male may have blue spots dorsally. Juveniles of both sexes are gold with dark brown bellies and sides with a dark stripe along the spine.
The “snake” in the SilentONGs appeared both with a stripe on its back and without one. So the slow worm matches pretty well.

mikrit wrote:Anyway, the English plural of "genus" turns out to be "genera" - which in Swedish means "embarrass". It must be a message to me from the gods of grammar.
[Etymology_Man]In spite of its suffix “-us”, the latin word “genus” is not a masculine noun of the second declension whose plural would be “geni”, but a neuter noun of the third declension. As it does for all latin neuter nouns, its plural **ds in “-a”.
The root “gen-” is from the Old Latin word gegnere (“to beget, produce”) …[/Etymology_man]

THANK YOU, SILENTTIMER!

It was an awesomful, molpish and treeish sequel to Time. I kept forgetting that it was "just" a fan-made sequel. If you now said that you were GLR, I would believe you.

My organized sand should now be demustarded and delivered on Monday, so I mayor may not be more active after that and will also be able to OTTify again.

Now some ketchup replies:

And just after T** **d of the ONGs, too. Scary!

That can't be coincidence. GLR must be still reading this needle-pulled thing. Maybe it's his present present. Timeghost is one of the most OTTifiable things ever. He just fits in everything Time-RELATED.

Amazing film! Wow, and I thought I had hassles when I post... None of us can explain where we get our ideas from, either. :? I once read that Stephen King says that ideas are constantly bombarding us, and some of us have sieves that catch some of the ideas. The ideas that his sieve catches happen to be scary/creepy, so he writes scary/creepy stories.

My sieve apparently catches paradoxes, in which I get so tangled that I just sit there goggling at them...

Not necessarily - reproduction could be by parthenogenesis. Maybe Raftcastles are one of those species where an individual carries both male and female equipment.

Yes and no. Yes, Latent22, Waveney, azule and others made steakish and inspiring sequels to Time, too. However t1i is not a sequel to the Beanie story, but it lives in a timeline of its own.
... but isn't it all a big ball of Timey-wimey stuff?

On that topic (kinda) and the recentish topic of long drives and states, I drove six hours and ended up back where I started. But somewhere in the middle of that, I attended a Timey-wimey wedding.

The bridesmaids wore black and red, which is a curious choice. Here's one:

mikrit got beanie'd! Very stylish! Image
Looks like a neat timey-wimey wedding, ED!

Todip I went on a river in a wooden motorized raftcastle for a while, then went to a wooden motorized raftcastle show and saw many more wooden motorized raftcastles.

This is close to what my dad's wooden motorized raftcastle looks like (though this image was found via Google):

HES, yappo, Minim: what would be your more likely misspelling of my whole name?

Why us three specifically? Are you after a specifically British opinion or something? Anyway yeah, it's that first "i" that would be most likely missed.

MUSTARDY TARDISENᵀ ARE *SUPERIOR*

第三十一章


(chapter 30)

Another 怪獣K dream. Morobu opens his eyes to make sure — yes, the camphor tree is still there, nothing has been disturbed. Stars across the sky make it clear there is no giant crab towering above him — and he remembers that takaashigani do not have long antennae. Morobu is slightly annoyed at waking up before seeing the direction to Mt. Fuji or the Dojo of Searchfu.
  But something has changed — though he laid down with his head a tiny bit higher than his feet (and the feet near the tree), it now feels like his head is lower. He swings his feet one way, his head the other, so that he is lying in a different direction, now with head and feet equidistant from the tree.
  He sleeps a while longer, then awakes at the first morning light. A few morning prayers, and he is back on his feet, eager to continue retracing his steps.
  After some thought about how far to backtrack, he now feels confident that, at the minimum, he should return to the mountain-pond (where he met mscha and the pink duck Link). It is the last place that distinctly felt alpine. He realizes it is also the last place where he had been walking alongside running water, and imagebot said that water flows true. Sitting by the hokora he can consider where to travel next.

5th-order Fractal Mustard Report
(It's mustard all the way down...)


I restarted the mrobotcastle, an 8-core workstation, during Newpage 2014, and my various Time-related pages (most notably the OTT index) were not being updated during that time. Though my OTT bots imagebot and nopixbot were working normally, and the RHTF translator was running too, the website-publishing bot was running in offline mode. It wasn't really mustard as such, because the same thing happens when I'm just cleaning the dust out of the mrobotcastle or during an electrical storm. I think @HAL9000 would attribute it to human error. bwebbot is now back online, but not without some teasing from the other bots.

There is more to it than just my mistake, I also put @mscha at that point in the story for a reason... but the plot structure changed making that choice largely irrelevant; I cannot yet explain further without spoiling.
  As for the possible existence of a(n)L lmjb1964 character in the Morobu universe, you might wish to follow that old Welsh-Cebuano proverb with English punctuation and right-to-left spelling...

AluisioASG wrote: Maybe it's an use case for remote debugging?

That's a possibility — though a remote one (heh) given that it would be me at home remotely debugging a computer within somebody else's workplace. I doubt @lmjb1964's employers would be happy with it, and I certainly wouldn't want to participate unless I knew that they approved.

balthasar_s wrote: @mrob27 - bothasar_s managed to catch your post before you edited out the quote. I wonder what you wanted to do with it.

First, an explanation for everyone else. In my previous post I replied (in a sort of unhelpful way) to @lmjb1964's report of script mustard ("... the multiquote script is what is breaking my quoting ability. ..."). Whilst composing my reply, in order to make sure that what I said was truthful, I tested Multi-Quote on my own system. The way I did that was by opening the post right before that @lmjb1964 post into another window, and hitting its QUOTE button, which added this to my quote-reply buffer:
balthasar_s wrote:
ggh wrote: Time ends in me, and t1i ends in i. Will there be a Timyself next?
Image wrote: You have no idea how correct your prediction is!
Wait for it wait for it wait for it :D

Thus, to answer your query @Balthacarius: I didn't quote you to reply to you, I quoted you to test Multi-Quote. It is a tribute to the script-writing skills of @Pikrass that the text was added to my post-editing-in-progress in another window. After submitting, I noticed what happened and edited the post to remove the superfluous quote.
  (By the way, imagebot required a bit of rewiring to handle your image-that's-also-a-link-inside-a-quote-tag thing. You're welcome.)

Ahh, yes. I had mentioned that on NP 1540, but it's nice to have actual video clips :D

TIn English the plural is probably "TARDISes", but I use TARDISEN because Svenska.

LI pronounce it "ell-em-jay-bee-nineteen-sixty-four", thus "an lmjb1964..." but when I remember what the l stands for the article changes and it's "a lmjb1964..."
