∰ The Blitzey-Stuff ∰
We sent our last Blitz report from NP1633, now we're at 1667. Here is some notable molpishness from those 34 pages:@Eternal Density
implemented customizable layouts in Sandcastle Builder, and there are a lot of other changes including a lot about dragons.
The MysteryONGs begin panning, and we see various raptors and molpies travelling from left to right. It doesn't take long to conclude that they are fleeing the rising water. The pan has reached the spot where the Forty are going to land, but the water hasn't arrived yet. During the pan, newpixbot
's head is severed
for a while, and @balthasar_s
starts a project to auto-generate newpixbot images. In the meantime we have the fractal GIF version
and begins blitzing.@ggh GIFs our avatars
onto the wowterfall.
of the past releases my OTTification
of "Somebody to Love", which I'm still not very happy with, but at least it doesn't sound worse
store banners begin to appear
and the OTTers (mainly BlitzGirl) catalogue them.
Back on NP1624 we had Beacon Foxtrot
, which included some riddles and unknown messages from @AluisioASG
. More posts followed, summarized here
. It took a while and a lot of help, but @ggh
seems to have figured it out by OTT:1664:39
(the one that describes online communities like this one) inspires several OTTers
to come back
and say hi
. It is OTTified by ucim

Yes, I actually do scan for Mrorl
, but he hasn't been very popular lately. I do still have notes on future Stanisław Lem OTTifications, though...
... I'm not surprised the OTT is moving slower... we've fallen
below 2 posts per nopix now. It takes about a dip to finish a newpage.
It is neat to see that we have a somewhat stable OTTer population at the moment.
Those are nice charts, @Earthling on Mars
, but this one
could benefit from having two different vertical scales, so that both plots can use the full height of the scale. The left edge shows the Unique Users scale, with 50 per line, and that's fine. I think the right edge should be labeled from 0 to 90 in increments of 10, for the Posts/Longpix scale. Then we'd be able to see the burst that happened at the Tymiversary.

Yes, there was m*stard. I couldn't upload anything for a while. In my typical fashion, I Waited a few nopix, did my usual tests, determined it was really broken at the server, contacted tech support, and they fixed it. It went all m*stardy again later, and got fixed before I got around to doing the tests.
It is because of things like that that most of my stuff (like automeme
, Ch*rpy Raptor
, the replay viewer
, etc.) are designed to be mostly or completely autonomous, and keep working even if mrob.com or the entire internet becomes inaccessible for a while.
Your bots that use automeme
would benefit from fetching 27 memes at a time
and saving the results locally.
∰ What-If automemes ∰ automeme
has a lot of templates based on questions in the what if book
. I haven't finished, but there are a lot. To get most of these templates, right now you can use the filter option, entering a pattern like "COULD
", etc. Maybe I'll add categories sometime using predefined #hashtags. They're all long, so I think @Link
might choose to add a way to filter by length.
IS THERE ENOUGH ᓭᘖᔭᓄᐨ TO CH*RP THE ENTIRE
CURRENT GOAT POPULATION OUT OF THE BLUECAVE?
is now giggling, and saying something about servers and safewords
. I wonder if she misses the beach? Maybe she needs to get out more. ... No, Wait... imagebot
just explained it to me
P.P.S: Post delayed by unavailability of fora.xkcd.com
503ification of frame m0832
I used isup.me
to see if it was just me, and no, it seems others are unable to access it too.
Someone commented (on bookface) that they still obsessively check the OTT even when they know
it's probably mired in the yellow stuff. I have audible alarms (spoken in robot-speech by imagebot
) that tell me the server is back in service... and guess what? I still blithely check the OTT too...@balthamirror
: For the first time, I started using ЯOЯЯIM TTO ƎHT
to Blitz. Its formatting is really nice, and my scripts (listed here
, for example spoiler opener
and no tinytext
) work well on it.
I have a request: When a post contains a link to another post, for example this URL: forums.xkcd.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=101043&start=64080#p3495064
it would be nice if ЯOЯЯIM ƎHT
could preserve that little "#p3495064
" at the end, and convert it into this: 1190.bicyclesonthemoon.dnsd.info/ott/view?np=1603#p3495064
rather than doing what it does right now, which is this: 1190.bicyclesonthemoon.dnsd.info/ott/view?np=1603
Then I'd be able to follow the links and it would take me to the actual post. Nothing else needs to be changed: I can manually add the "#p3495064" to the end of the URL and it takes me to the post.
S.: Now getting lots of balthamirrorbot
posts in the ninja-preview. Rah, rah! cys-boom-bot!
Seriously, ЯOЯЯIM TTO ƎHT
is ch*rping brilliant.
(Edit: fix typos)
(Edit2: Remove '.dnsd' inside ЯOЯЯIM link target)
