Indeed.
Newpixbot has been looking for newpix, but all it has found is a note:
anonymous wrote:Organized sand is extremely disorganized. HDD mustard has caused the OS to go away. Newpix will be delayed for up to a day while until I rescue them. :(

If only the OS m*starded off, the ONGs should be relatively easy to recover. Install OS on another HDD, boot that, recover what can be from m*stardy sand.
Otherwise, well... let's hope there are backups somewhere that can be retrieved, and it's just a matter of getting properly organised sand.

In either case, I'll just echo this:

Sorry to hear of
mustard, mystery author.
Behave yourself, sand!

Well, we are still talking about 1190: Time and what emerged from it.
I admit, it's not always easy to see.

Translation:
  • 1190: Time ended in 2013.
  • Some of us have created stories (see: “Go to story”) RELATED to 1190: Time (including a sequel of over 1400 frames).
  • One of these OTTer-made stories is still going on.
  • The (unknown) author of that ONGoing story is currently expericencing computer problems, thus that story (and our discussions about it) are on hold.

Haiku:
ONGoing story
is not ONGing these dips.
Computer mustard.

Hi!
*looks at numbers*
I don't think we're going to get there. We're much mellower than we used to be. I'm not sure that even an act of BlitzGirl could accomplish that.
But it's nice to see you again. :)
Maybe by the next Timeiversary....

A dragon left his homeland
curious for new life

He went here and there,
The past, the future, and elsewhen,
Random, on a whim

He looked high and low
But no place he looked could find
Community, warmth

Each world was harsh, cold,
Some hospitable, but thin,
Too many voices, or few

But one place he found,
was unique: it cared, it laughed,
ignoring the void

the people there, odd --
but so was he, the dragon:
they spoke the same tongue

He stayed there a while,
enjoyed the warm company
while he was able

There was plenty of Time,
songs sung, stars observed,
rivers small, seas grand

But Time would not hold;
the source of their joy ended
suddenly, sadly

He would not stand idle,
the dragon refused! Resolved,
he set out, searching

Through Time and through space,
he sought for a solution;
but he grew weary

Bit by bit, ceasing
to remember his purpose
Why he had left there

His walk drifted out
Past other stars, light pinpoints,
Planets, other life-sites

He felt something lost
Gnawing at him, forgotten
he flew through the void

One day, he flew close
to a bright warm old star-fire
heat thawing his heart

Warm flames reminded
the wayward lone dragon, of
friendship once cherished!

He woke from torpor
Remembered what he had left
As if in a dream

He raced back to it,
Back through Time, back towards them
his old friends, once known

His mind raced as well:
Were they still there? All this Time
might have scattered them

He grew more alarmed
and sped up his pace, working
quickly through the days

At last, there, the Time,
the one the dragon had left,
he found in the void!

It was still going!
Still alive, still resplendent!
Joy-filled as ever!

He molpied back in
The seaish celebration
Of OTTers treeish

The OTTish came easy,
A tongue barely forgotten,
like molpy grapevine

Though the universe
outside was moving onward,
for these, Time had stopped!

But that didn't matter
for here, they make their own Time
Perpetually!

Though the dragon knows
He can not stay forever
For now is enough.

And so he molps there
Composing along with them,
Beanish poetry.
