Such a cute little hand for Mr. Nimoy.
It remains a fun game to play on The Train.

From a distance, over the noise;
We can play a quiet game with our hands.

Open your thumb.
Put it back.

Open your thumb and forefinger.
Put it back.

Open you longest finger and forefinger and thumb.
Put them back.

For people that were far away or dead (not born, yet) in the 1960's here is an article from the New York Times.
The article explains a little about Who Mr. Nimoy was as a person and the Character he helped create.
http://www.nytimes.com/2015/02/27/arts/ ... .html?_r=0
Life is, just, an exchange of electrons; It is up to us to give it meaning.

We are all in The Gutter.
Some of us see The Gutter.
Some of us see The Stars.
by mr. Oscar Wilde.

Those that want to Know; Know.
Those that do not Know; Don't tell them.
They do terrible things to people that Tell Them.

bOTTeriada goes ONG

Postby balthasar_s » Sat Feb 28, 2015 5:11 am UTC

the mrONGbdex story continues.

Code: Select all

  "Quiet," interrupted Mrorl, and lowered to a whisper. "I think I hear something coming."
  The bOTTifactors peeked back over the top edge of the stairs they had just descended, and saw a familiar black shape. A raptorcat!
  "RUN!" shouted Balthacarius, and they both clambered back up to the first level and rushed towards the entrance. The raptorcat, startled by the unfamilarity of being charged by metal prey, darted into the shadows as the bOTTifactors rushed up the first set of steps, through the little wine-house and back out into the open. Slowing to a nervous crawl, they hoped to avoid the great bot's gaze. It appeared to think they were behind a boulder to the left. They crept along as quietly as they could and then, "*Now!``RUN!*" yelled Mrorl as the Cognitative Engine turned its head and spotted them.
  Breathless, they ran along a narrow road that paralleled the ridge, then turned at the first opportunity to head up towards the higher craggy hills beyond. On the plateau at the crest of this last steep slope lay Tencir, proud capitol of the mighty realm of [Tencrivar|#p3398650] and southern guardian of the great Causeway to the Northern Highlands.
  They raced uphill, stumbling and waving their arms to keep balance, as the Engine was again getting closer. They scrambled up piles of loose stones, sending many flying down the slope, and Balthacarius even started a small avalanche that nevertheless did nothing to slow the progress of the massive and angry robot. Emerging finally onto the plateau, Mrorl and Balthacarius ran flat-out towards the walled city of Tencir. This they found shuttered, its gates barred against the rampaging colossus, after its stampede dust cloud had apparently been spotted by the Tencrivarna guards atop their lookout-towers.
  So Mrorl and Balthacarius had no choice but to skirt the city walls, passing just to the right of them and seeking some shelter in the great Rock^{2} on which that city was built, adjoining the vast ridge of the Causeway itself. Soon they found an entrance to a cave, perhaps cut into the rock by some ancient monastic order, and leapt inside. They ran a few steps in, and stopped.
  "Well, here at least we're safe," said Mrorl, calm once again. "The mouth of this cave is too small for the machine to enter, and it can only reach about that far. I suppose it will be waiting outside for us, but we can at least get some rest." Soon, the lumbering steps of the Cognitative Engine could be heard, slowing to a pace as it got closer. In a moment the light dimmed as the mouth of the cave was covered by a wall of riveted steel: it had turned and was sitting down against the sloping rock-face, sealing the mouth of the cave with its vast back.
  "We're trapped," whispered Mrorl, with a miserable frown to Balthacarius as the darkness grew deeper. "I'll look for another way out." Mrorl blinked the diodes behind his eyes to light the way, and walked further into the cave. Soon he found a small ledge down, at the edge of a subterranean lake. The cave was completely blocked by this -- any escape this way would require swimming under water. Mrorl returned to his friend to report his findings.
  "Well, this dip certainly turned out well!" exclaimed Balthacarius sarcastically. "Whatever possessed me to come pay you a visit today?"
  There was an awkward pause. "What do you think it's waiting for now?" asked Mrorl.
  "For us -- really for *you* -- to give up. That seems pretty clear."
  Again there was silence. Mrorl tiptoed over to the cave entrance, reaching out to feel the metal back of his creation, warmed by steam boilers and an intense passion for vindication.
  "I feel Mrorl..." rumbled the great metal voice. Mrorl jumped back, returned to sit next to Balthacarius, and for some Time they kept silent and motionless.
   "It's a shame I didn't program it to tend sheep," quipped Mrorl. His friend gave a quizzical look. "... or goats. Because then we could -- oh, never mind. I'll explain later." Another long silence, then at last Balthacarius whispered:
  "We can't sit here forever. Why don't I try to reason with it... if that's possible... I do think the OTTish have some kind of reason."

I re-ONG'd one of the recent bOTTeriada lines, replacing the misspelled word "capitol" with "capital", so it reads ... Tencir, proud capital of the mighty realm of Tencrivar ....
  Any other m*stard corrections will be incorporated into the full version of the Mrorl's Machine story once it is complete, which I'll post here in the OTT.

IMHO goats are more important for the midgame but you probable don't want them clogging up the early game. I have 9 goats so far, because even with the always change doors strategy you sometimes lose. I need to win a few more times before I can afford to get Ninja League and VITSSÅGEN JA. Actually I'm surprised at my current winning streak, as I haven't had to savescum yet. Thanks Monty!

Best comment in the OtherComic-1492 thread. Though not quite as hilarious as "SPREAD THIS UNTIL IT REACHES NASA WE MUST FIND ANSWERS" on the tumblr... or the daleks... but I had fun ENHANCE!ing things :)

I have sent out a couple PMs asking for help double-checking the IRC logs for things that should be kept private (like someone mentioning where someone else was sitting) in order to follow the guideline of making sure people can't be matched up easily with any images. Also, @Sustainabilizer and I are discussing how to proceed on the Proceedings.

A while ago I had reported 8979488 views and 89795 posts, which is (9000000-20512)/(90000-205), and 20512/205 is about 100.1. Earlier, @Neil_Boekend reported 11071/155 ~ 71.4, then 10478/146 ~ 71.8. I checked again a while ago, and it was 8992256/89878, which gives 7744/122, about 63.5. Now we have 8992859/89882, or 7141/118 ~ 60.5. So, yeah, probably not gonna happen.

The Outside has been rather unmolpish and although I have neither been in the basement nor having a seaish coma (indeed I ketchup daily), I have not posted for many many dips. Part of the problem was that I had plans to celebrate my very first (non-trivial, base-10) RNM and I have been sitting on 99 waiting for a spare nopix or two to do something special for the occasion. However, the OTT continues apace and there have been many awesomeful things to which I have wanted to respond (not that I can remember them all, now) and so I need to get the RNM out of the way. It has been delayed for too long, and continuing Outside m*st*rd means it is reduced in ambition (ha! Now you'll all wonder what totally sea-ish idea I'd had ... but, in fact, I hadn't really had it!), but -- finally -- here is a riverish contribution, a commemorative OTTification of frame 37, from the innocent early dips.

Image

I thank Marsh'n for the baobish celebratory cake xe offered in anticipation (and also for some kind exchanges during the conference).

I enjoyed what little of the conference I was able to see; but even though I couldn't participate very much it was wowterful to know that it happened at all. As conveyed to mrob27, I was on the IRC and am happy for my few contributions to be included in the public record.

I was going to write lots more but the Outside calls again. I love the OTT. It is a truly remarkable place. Thank you for making it so, with your creativity and warmth and humour.

Congrats! What's your OTTification made of? Looks like string. Neat!

I don't know what the ASCII at the bottom is. A penis? Anyways, nice peniscastle. ;) A nub, if you will. (I used to call newbies "nubs", FYI. It wasn't a euphemism, though.)

Yes, the OTTification is, indeed, made of string. It doesn't bend as precisely nor as rigidly as I would have liked, however (which is why the sandcastle is not crenelated), but I don't think the wire I'd contemplated as an alternative would have worked particularly well either (but for different reasons). Anyway, I now have portable versions of our intrepid pair, Megan and Cueball, for possible future OTTifications.

The ASCII is a tribute to Leonard Nimoy/Spock.

Indeed. Within the last few newpix the difference “posts - views / 100” went up from 60 to 70.

mrob27 wrote:So, yeah, probably not gonna happen.

Yeah.

In some sense this is good news: There are more than 100 views per post. This means that the posts are actually read. They are interesting.

(Anyway, it's just a play with numbers. Let's molpy back to the important questions of this thread such as the still undetected molpy in BFTF, the conference proceedings, etc.)

((Anyway², I'm still applying the “reload the index page to look for new posts, and minimise the reloading of the OTT” rule, just in case. ;)))

Welcome back DrSamCarter, even though you had merely turned temporarily invisible rather than disappear(ed) into the basement. Hmmm... should that be "disappeared" or "disappear"? Or should I use "had disappeared"? Or should I abandon the entire sentence as if it were a brainslug and start again? Or maybe I should just curl back up and go to bed.

Yeah, that sounds like the right idea. After I post.

Steakish otty; I like the 3D stuff, especially yours, made of 1D stuff. And you can carry it in your pocket and have any frame of Time any time you want.

I did the same once; I put a bunch of pixels in my pocket. They fell out though.

I found it interesting that the Vulcan salute came from a Jewish service. I thought it was just made up, but it's nice that it has an actual human connection.

Live long, prosper, and wait for it.

And other stuff, which the micromolpies appear to have stolen. Along with my morning cup of coffee. Turns out when you push the button the coffee comes out, even when you haven't placed a cup underneath. Steambottle!

mrob27 wrote:I spent about 2 nopix editing this manually, which is what I needed to get over my steambottlish troll-directed freudenschade or whatever the ch*rp it was.

[Etymology-Man]
The form of „Freudenschade“ suggests that it's a German noun (thus the capitalisation), composed of „Freude“ and „Schade“, with the meaning of “Schade with a Freude aspect”.

Since „Freude“ means “joy”, „Freudenschade“ is a „Schade“ you can rejoice about.

However, there's noETA German noun „Schade“, just an interjection „schade!“ (“bummer!”) and the noun „Schaden“ (“damage”).

If you stretch German grammar a little, „Freudenschade“ can mean a disappointment you rejoice about. So it might be a blessing in the Western Paradox Church.

Spoiler:
OTOH, there's a compound noun „Schadenfreude“ in German which means the joy („Freude”) you have from the damage („Schaden“) of someone else. But that's something we don't want to have here. (That's why I put it in a spoiler. Hopefully it won't escape.)
ETA: In fact there is – or was at least: „Schade“ is an archaic term for „Schaden“.
So if an Old One says „Freudenschade”, xe means “damage of joy” (whatever that means).

The sugar pine is the largest species of pine, commonly growing to 40–60 meters (130–200 ft) tall, exceptionally up to 82 m (269 ft) tall, with a trunk diameter of 1.5-2.5 m (5–8 ft), exceptionally 3.5 m (11 ft). Tallest ever recorded was "Yosemite Giant", an 82.05 m (269.2 ft) tall specimen in Yosemite National Park, which died from bark beetle attack in 2007. Tallest known living specimens today grow in southern Oregon and Yosemite National Park; one in Umpqua National Forest is 77.7 m (255 ft), and another in Siskiyou National Forest is 77.2 m (253.5 ft). Yosemite National Park has a sugar pine measured to 80.5 m (264.1 ft) as of June 2013. The tree was affected by the Rim Fire, but it survived.


There was a funnier one.
That's weird.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coulter_pine
Spoiler:
The outstanding characteristic of this tree is the large, spiny cones which are 20–40 cm (8–16 in) long, and weigh 2–5 kg (4-10 lbs) when fresh. Coulter pines produce the largest cones of any pine tree species (people are actually advised to wear hardhats when working in Coulter pine groves), although the slender cones of the sugar pine are longer. The large size of the cones has earned them the nickname "widow makers" among locals.

Maybe we should read from the mirror, and post from the thread.

OH HAI, I ENHANCED YOUR FLUTTERBEE

Postby mrob27 » Sat Feb 28, 2015 11:24 pm UTC

Thank you @Sustainabilizer for clarity on the non-word Freudenschade. I was trying to guess what it meant. I know I don't have joy in another person suffering. It was only me who suffered, and only a little bit, and only in an abstract theoretical sense. But I had some joy in the fact that I avoided being distracted by a sort of trolling-type activity, but displeasure at the fact that I even have to consider the fact that we got trolled, or our non-privacy taunted, or whatever it is that happened. So I guess it's joy-over-self-nonsuffering. Whatever that is. Probably just plain old "smugness" :roll:

Treeish! :) (FTFY.)

But I don't think you FTFM (fixed that for me), you sort of BTFM (broke that for me) :wink:
  You see, @SilentTimer alreay has a perfectly functional Silent Timer, the physical device that @balthasar_s constructed, and it is scaled appropriately to @SilentTimer (assuming that @SilentTimer is of roughly human adult size).
  The tiny clock I made is intended for use by SilentBot, who is a little bot that @balthasar_s made out of a single digit 7-segment LED display module and some resistors etc., and which you saw in person. Since SilentBot is much smaller than @SilentTimer, it needs a smaller version of the clock.
Here's one for SilentBot: / Image / look real close, it's animated!

That's really treeish! (Though again, I would have said "here's a GIF smiley OF SilentBot", or maybe "Here's a smaller SilentBot so that SilentBot can have its own SilentBot" ...) But let's not be picky. More bots is always a good thing!

Treeish tree stories, @addams!

ucim wrote:Maybe we should read from the mirror, and post from the thread.

That would help, but...
  Here are two more data points for the countdown to Проект Более 9000000 : This mornip the numbers were 8996779/89893, and the remaining ratio was 3221/107 ~ 30.1 ; when I began my ketchup I got 8998822/89898 and 1178/102 ~ 11.5; and now it's 8999002/89900 and 998/100 ~ 10.0. Trying to force it now would be pretty e**ish. The negative attention it would attract is not worth it.

Google tells me fraudenshade is sorrow at another's joy, and has been used in various places, despite not quite being a real German word, just a Spoonerism of one by English-speakers.

Sorry, I think that might have been me.

Also I lied. I had to rebuild lighttpd to include mod-mimemagic so the extension-less attachments worked. Also, somehow wget started to suffer buffer overflows as of some time ago (not in this run yet).

Good to see a new copy of the mirror.

If you see this post it means that We can post from there!

But,
  • /ott/view always shows first newpage
  • attachments and external images give a 404. Avatars don't.
  • No css.

The only case when a bot is called from cgi is /ott/update (which calls bot2). I put all the mirror software in a directory that's normally inaccessible from the http server. And I set up some CGI aliasses for the programs that need it. except for /ott/update, bot2 and bot3 are not called by other pieces of software so they can be somewhere else.
