Hm, maybe it's another Judgement Dip. The bots have grown restless and decided to take over the OTT. We will all be assimilated. Thus ends our free will.

I'm gonna guess...buffyhats?

Just how big is this jar, exactly? Do you win a prize if you guess the correct number of buffyhats?

The way I see it, "A JAR OF BUFFYHATS" could mean "one of Buffyhats' jars".
Why do we just assume Buffyhats would be in the jar? Does Buffyhats use the jar as a coma-place? Who knows, maybe Buffyhats wears the jar as a hat!

I had fun writing the comments, though I'm not sure if they're actually useful. I think maybe I should make the code more heretical before I put it on GitHub
And the adding of more molpies in molpCount = Enough_Molpies + Extra_Molpies; is entirely redundant.

MAXIMUM OTTERMOLPIES YIELDS MAXIMUM SKITCHERTS

Postby mrob27 » Fri Jan 16, 2015 6:06 am UTC

... It's like a hat box except it's a jar.

Hello, OTT. For the next few dips I am going to participate in the MIT Mystery Hunt. That means away from OTT for the most part. But as always send PM if something comes up, like if the mr*bdex mustard starts filling other parts of the Tymiverse...

Some replies:

#define Enough_Molpies 12

[...]

I follow the first commandment with molpish anticipation.

New What If.

That puzzle hunt sounds molpish. Here the puzzle is how can 4 people, with 4 wolpies pack enough boxes to fill a rental truck. LW is going South with me when I go. SW will stay for the rest of her acupuncture treatments. (Treatment 2 is today.) MSW will stay too, because MSWFP is staying for now. GHW goes back to college next week with, of course, GHWFP.

Steakish otty StormAngel! Great to see you back! And great to see Febrion2. I like your take on words BlitzGirl; I'd say however that to be a "real" word it has to convey meaning to another person. So if you invent a word but keep it to yourself, it doesn't count. But if you use it and successfully convey the intended meaning, that is where words are born. Then, like the Higgs Bozo, every time it passes through the Great Void Between Minds0, it picks up momentum, and in doing so, its position becomes less well determined. With enough momentum, its position eventually expands to be the entire universe, and it is now Universally Known As A Word (ukaaw).

There are companies that publish lists of Ukaaws to enlighten the masses that are too lazy to use the words themselves (otherwise known as rest masses); these tomes rest on bookshelves in schools, libraries, and living rooms the world over.

And that's my word on words; you have my word on it.

Being as I'm on my MTA, I can't say much more (well, I can say it but my sand won't listen). Therefore I'll leave you with just one more thing. But you'll have to...

ETA: Balthasar_whatever - when I try to go to the BalthONGs, I get a CAPCHA request page, but no actual CAPCHA to respond to, nor any form to enter it in on. I'm on an ancient Organized Sand over wifi, which barely tries to run Win 97; I'd send you a screenshot but I don't have enough memory to screen-cap.

The BlitzGirl didn't use her sweeping broom
'cause she knew very well the molpies were also waiting for it
And the molpies didn't go to war because
they knew the Outsiders were also waiting for it
And the bots didn't enslave the humans for
they were also, just like them, also waiting for it
And the humans didn't kill the bots as well
'cause they knew they were all just a big family

What was the reason fo cloudflaring chirpingmustard?

If captchas can be inserted instead of what should have appeared it's no longer transparent.
Can it insert other things?

I don't understand CloudFlare.
I'm afraid of CloudFlare.
What does it want?

The bots, and the bftfviewpages will now generate 1190.bicyclesonthemoon.info links instead of moonbase.chirpingmustard.com again.

When the frame is ONGed by a bot there will be a 1/8 chance that a newpixbOTTified frame is posted.

Well, duh. And since they're all awesomeful, they're all superior.

Good luck on the puzzlehunt, mrob. Sounds like fun. Kind of hard to believe you aren't already at 500 posts, since I think of you as one of the mainstays of the OTT. And I'll take another look and see if I notice something noticeable, and something with that noticeable thing that is noticeable. :)

Re: 1190: "Time"

I have been considering something. This is not always a good thing; it can seometimes be a dangerous thing (as in generating a mustard factory) but that hasn't stopped me from thinking.

It hasn't stopped me from thinking coherent thoughts either... that was done by something else. But anyway...

I've been wondering why it is that the ONGs that are not actually from the One True Author do not get nearly as much discussion as the original ones. They are just as interesting, and as proven by the Making of the Silent Ongs, just as rich in content to be discussed. discovered, disclosed, and dismembered. But for some reason, we wait for it less vocally.

It just occurred to me why.

With the original Time comic, the Author was not present here in the thread. The ONGs came from On High, for us to do with what we will. But He was not (visibly) listening to our speculations, machinations, lucibrations, or celebrations. It was an external mystery to be solved by us all - research about the "Outside" (if I may use a heretical term in a Holy manner) world.

However, the ONGs we are giving ourselves do not have this property. Their author is here, present in the thread, and the lack of an answer to questions we may have is due to the author simply not saying. Yet. But he could, because he (or she) is right here. It's an active choice by one of us. So, there isn't the same sense of "outside reality" that the original ONGs had. Asking a question in the presence of the author is not the same as asking the same question when the author is (and always was) absent.

This theory is testable to some degree - there was a time when the author of the MysteryOngs was unknown, and there was speculation it could even be the One True Author. I wonder if there is a way to divine how many posts, about the MysteryOngs, were speculations of the same kind as the original, and compare it to after SilentTimer was revealed to be the OTA ("Other True Author"). Of course, there would need to be noise filtration, as the revelation of ST itself caused much jubilant posting, but of a different sort.

Anyway, those are the ruminations of the wetstuff inside my braincase. Such as it is. We now return you to your regular redundakitties.

A contributing factor might be that there were less of us to discuss the SilentONGs the first Time around as compared to the OTC, which had hundreds and hundreds of eyeballs on it and thus a seaish number of OTTers discussing it. The sheer volume of conversation was greater.

CHUPAMOLPIES? IN _MY_ RAFTCASTLE?

:lol:

Jose, I have ruminated on that issue myself. I think that the main problem is that there aren't as many analysts available to analyze. When Time was ongoing, there was a slew of people available to enhance, speculate, and share. Now there's a smaller group here on a regular basis, and at least one of them has no enhance skills (me). And it's also a question of man-hours, or OTTer-hours. The tasks needed to carry out the analysis could be shared, and if one person wasn't available to do it, there was no shortage of others to pick up the slack. I've lamented that fact often, that these awesomeful efforts aren't getting all the attention they so deserve.

(Ninja'd by BlitzGirl, but I'd already written most of this post before my sweetie showed up to go for a walk and distracted me, so I figured I post it anyway. Redundancy being molpish and all.)

ETA and thanks, OTTomome, for letting me know about the chupamolpies. Here I thought it was ratmolpies that I hear chewing on my house. :( I wonder how one finds a chupamolpy exterminator?

Of course. It's so obvious, I don't know why I didn't think of it. Maybe I can get some sort of inter-agency discount. 8-)

José, is it a dynamic IP? That might explain it. You were assigned a bad IP.

balthasar_s wrote:What was the reason for cloudflaring chirpingmustard?

HTTPS. Also, caching.

There's an option to bypass their servers. It is enabled for all redirects (calendar, db, mirror, wiki). It was also enabled for moonbase., but there were frequent downtimes. So I disabled it. I can turn it on again if you so prefer. Preemptively reenabled.

balthasar_s wrote:If captchas can be inserted instead of what should have appeared it's no longer transparent.

No it's not. CloudFlare is a full-fledged frontend provider. They can block hotlinking. They can cache your resources. They can minify your code. They can hide your email. They can put a CNAME in your root record.

balthasar_s wrote:I don't understand CloudFlare. I'm afraid of CloudFlare. What does it want?

I feel I've explained this before. When we moved to it, I think. You may have asked me to disable it for the moonbase back then. Would explain why it was disabled.

We currently don't need CloudFlare at all, I acknowledge that. We can go back to Gandi's nameservers if people want to. And if I ever refuse, you can just ping ChronosDragon and mrob to replace the nameservers without notifying me. I don't think there have been any changes between the current config and the one there.

Remember, I may be the only active chirper in here, but I'm not the only one.

I've taken the liberty of slating the people who've applied for inclusion in OTToMeme for inclusion in the next release of AUTOMOME as well. It may be a while, though, because I have some seaish things planned. Image
