That picture (drzwi.JPG) is a screenshot from a game "the Neverhood". There is a door with a button. If you press the button (because you think it will open the door) a window opens and a fist jumps out hitting you in the face. (see this video, 0:43: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bi4u4EvCblI) "drzwi" means "door". Why are you interested in attachment filenames?

ETA:

Ok, time for some papal advice.

Don't press the red button.
It will not open the door for you.

Good luck, my blitzing friends!

I read everything.

This word in particular is a good example of the incomprehensibility of Polish spelling to non-Poles, fitting with the rest of my examples above.

ggh: My avatar was the left feathery raptor from Click and Drag tile 1n27w. As far as I know, it is not a yi qi.

It's pronounced kind of like "jvee".

When I upload attachments to the OTT, they will have the same names they had on my computer. It can be Polish, it can be English, it can be an abbreviation, or it can be a weird mix.
Here is a list of all my OTT attachment names:

I liked the green avatar.

Some about pronounciation. When I read the OTT I sometimes mispronounce words even if I know how they should be pronounced correctly. For example, I often read "wolpy" like "volpy". I often read numbers in Polish, even in an English text.

Thanks for the link, SBN. Seems relevant enough for me. :D

I am probably not the one to answer, as I'm a guitarist but I've played piano (and accordion)...and having markers there to help me keep me spot is what I used to do, too. So, I wouldn't mock you. I suppose if you had some markers on a guitar... ;) Nah, I use my markers (built-in) on my guitar whenever I can. At some point the goal is to get good enough to never have to look at your instrument, even to find your starting point. Kinda like "touch typing". But there's no way I could touch type without my starting markers on "F" and "J".

Over eternity one tends to forget such inconsequential things. Forgetting that you're alive, that's a tougher thing. I mean, walking in front of buses works a little different if you're alive versus if you're dead.

Thoughts?
Long Time Ago.

Don't dream it is over, Time Thread.

Spoiler:
That song played in the background.
I only understood a few of the words, at the time.

Googling lyrics was not an option in 1988.
Even for those of us with fingers in 1988.

Back to the present ...
I wonder, ...What song will lmjb1964 play on Saturday?

I didn't realize that was a Crowded House song. I'm also not sure I realized Crowded House and Split Enz were related. If I knew it, I've forgotten it. (Much like one forgets things when one is dead. :wink: )

As for Saturday--maybe nothing.
Spoiler:
What addams is referring to is that I have an audition for the symphony here in town scheduled for Saturday. But I'm not sure I'll do it. When you audition for percussion, you have to do many different instruments--there are two excerpts each for xylophone, glockenspiel, snare drum, cymbals and tambourine, plus two solos, one for xylo and one for snare. It's a lot of music, and it's hard. I've had a little over a month to prepare while working three jobs and playing a bunch of gigs. If it was a timpani gig that would be fine, but this other stuff is harder for me. I don't want to make a fool of myself, but I also don't want to miss out on this opportunity. I dunno. I have another marathon practice session tonight. I'll see how I feel then. :(

Assuming you mean lost as in the lost Dent Arthur Dent, as opposed to simply missing in the basement, does Neil count?

I'm not lost. I just don't feel like anything I would say would really add to the OTT.

I think everything you say adds to the OTT. :)

macraw83 wrote:MFFS Usually "Molpy Food-Funding Source", but in my case it's "Meowlpy"

Actually, I think it started, and maybe it used more, as WFFS (W=wolpy). I've used MFFS because I also have a Meowlpy. But ni ni ni chimichanga tennis ball and all that.

Congrats, svenman, and thank you!

Hi, NotAllThere! I often feel like I'm Not All There. Or here. :)

Loving the blitz reports!

Hm, I can't remember what the new decree is. I'll check that right after I push this red button--Ow!

Oops, so much for the decree. :D

Preview edit re: "cheating" to find a note or chord quickly:
Spoiler:
My first paid gig was playing percussion for the musical Oliver! The last note I played, which was a solo, was an F on the high drum. (Funny that I still remember it was an F.) I had been playing percussion for less than a year, and I couldn't reliably tune to the F in the couple of seconds that I had, while everyone else was playing different notes. Many drums have tuning gauges, but not these. So, I brought several books to rehearsal and stuck books of various thicknesses under the timpani pedal till I found one that kept the pedal at an F. The drummer for the show teased me about it. "Oh no, I need to play a C! Where's War and Peace?" But he was a beautiful young man, so I didn't mind him teasing. And really it's no different than having the gauges. Whatever makes it work for you, I say.


ETA two things:
1) I wanted to point out that CrowdRise, the crowdfunding site we're using for addams, lets you keep any money you raise, whether or not you make your goal. So any amount donated will help addams. That's one of the reasons I chose CrowdRise.
2) I made a tinyurl for the site: http://www.tinyurl.com/crowdrise-addams
3) There is no third thing!Actually, there is, but now I've forgotten it. Ch*rp. I hate when that happens.

Edit2: Of course I remembered immediately after hitting "Submit." We're almost to NP 2500! Woot!

Here because of quote notification, which is actually a useful addition to the fora (not sure if it's worth the "egosearch" mustard though) :D

Actually, I think it started, and maybe it used more, as WFFS (W=wolpy). I've used MFFS because I also have a Meowlpy. But ni ni ni chimichanga tennis ball and all that.

Yes, I believe that SBN was the first to use it, referring to her wolpies, not too far behind where I am in my Blitz if I'm not mistaken (at least I don't remember seeing it until recently). I've seen MFFS used a bunch, and I assumed it was mostly used for "molpy" but either way works :wink:

I tried to fix what I could with the Zanclean Zodiac page. I set it up so that each frame is reachable directly (in the canvas), and hackable. I put the "instructions" on a tooltip (mouse over the last frame and it tells you what to do). I still have to look into why ctrl+arrow doesn't work for some.

I also edited the ZZ posts. The Field Report starts on NP1749. From there you can get to the prologue frames (posted by others). Now each Report has a link to the next one (except for a certain post).

And since I edited 25 posts (*dies*) I will just post the full list of links here:

Interesting, it seems linked pastposts containing quotes trigger notifications as if they were new. I just got 4 notifications from azule's list (NPs 1804, 1811, 1813, and 1818).
Nothing to fret about, it's just an interesting quirk in the system.

An empty quote is enough to trigger it. The feature can be turned off in the UCP - I switched it off immediately as I read enough of the fora that I won't miss anything important.

Just in case, I've made an SFI topic. It doesn't seem to be linking, because the timestamps don't match up.

As I realised (and noted accordingly) while replying in SFI, azule mentioned editing the posts to link them together:
azule wrote:And since I edited 25 posts (*dies*) I will just post the full list of links here
It seems the linking was just incidental to the notifications, and the edits were the actual culprits. My bad.

[blindpost]


I logged onto the OTT this morning and saw that I had 6 notifications, one was a Reply to the OTT and 5 were all quotes from azule, at different times spread over a few nopix. I thought, "what the chirp have I said recently that would be so interesting to where one OTTer would quote 5 different things?" Apparently they were all pastpost edits, presumably to add navigation links between Zanclean Zodiac episodes, which is treeish.

But man, this new fora version is epsilon.

ETA: preview edit shows a post talking about azule editing Zanclean Zodiac posts, so at least I'm somewhat on topic :P

I think I'm at about a quarter. Half the posts never make it at all, the half that do, are edited by half. (And that's not counting the stuff I thought, but couldn't remember long enough to start a post.)

So, for those of you out there who may feel ignored, or unappreciated. Please don't, I just didn't like my writing well enough to hit submit.

I alternate between saying too much and deleting too much - sometimes both in the same post. I am currently reading through some pastpages and I'm totally wincing whenever I see my avatar. I hardly post in that era, but when I do, there's like no content of any value in my posts. I'm pretty disgusted with past me. I sure hope future me never decides to read current me.


The Little Wonder and I saw Finding Dory tonight. I cried. She appeared to be fine. There were otters in it - really cute otters.

This reply is pretty gghful. But not completely. :)

ggh wrote:Not so fast, Mr. AotC! From the perspective of a storyteller, what made the GLR take the Time to draw those frames?
"Because they were there."

No, wait - that's not right.

"Because they weren't there!"

Well, that's not right either. But I think I've stumbled onto the secret of Gingercat.

At this point in the story, the Cuegan have been brought to and left alone with the Grand High Council, who will decide what to do with them. They are "from the sea" - is that one of the enemy territories? Was there a war, and that's why "the sea" is so berift of people? They could be executed, enslaved, celebrated, fed to molpies, used for medical experiments, who knows? Are the Cuegan armed? Spies? Is this the TSA of the 130 and a hafth century?

So, "[give me] your bags" could be seen (by the Cuegan) as subjugative, but is then revealed as an act of kindness. Sort of. "You can put your bags down if you like" is probably a bit too complex to utter at this point, and keeping herself between the Cuegan and their armaments is just a good idea (though she should have probably done that while the other Beanies were there).

But also, by putting the bags further into the castle, it is an invitation. If somebody comes to your home, and you hang their coat in the closet (as opposed to draping it over the nearest chair), you are inviting them in. I think that's what's actually happening, although we don't know it yet. This will become their new home (if Rosetta has her way). Rosetta knows what she's about to tell them; they don't. Rosetta knows that this may take a while.

So, it raises the suspense a bit, but ultimately (and quickly) reveals Rosetta as a gracious host, not an adversary. It also sets the stage for "big news"... kind of like "I think you'd better sit down before I tell you".

And, when it's time to RUN, the packs are pretty close by. Yes, they have to get past her, but she's not expecting it, she's not treating them as hostile and isn't defensive, and snatching them is quite quick.

Also, considering the number of very similar (to each other) frames the One True Author has penned in his quest to have us Wait For It, this is not at all out of character.

ggh wrote:So true. All of it. (Except the part about 6am. The new day starts that moment when you know in your heart that you don't get to sleep. For me, that usually coincided with the taking of the morning shower, or that conscious skipping of same.)
One can define the boundary individually, of course, but for a more universal definition I fell on the moment in time (in college) when most people are in coma. I figured that if you're up after 6am, you're not going to bed until the next sunset. If you're up before 6am, you were probably pulling an all-nighter. And 6am is a curvilinear number, so there's no danger of raptors. 7 obviously wouldn't work, and 5 is right out.

Sometimes I come across something I want to respond to but which will take some thought. I put it off... but then don't respond to other things because I don't want to have skipped the thing I want to think about.... and it cascades into either a seaish post (like this one) or a virtual post (one I've posted merely in my mind). Unfortunately, my mind has lots of empty space to hold these posts, but too thick a skull to allow them to tunnel out reliably.

And somewhere in this reketchup, I missed rereading about JuneBug's upcoming audition - but I remember reading about it originally. Just go for it! What's the worst that could happen?

Well, ok, you could be drawn and quartered, burned at the stake, chopped up into little bits and fed to raptors. But that's not so bad, is it? You've survived the Voldeframe - you can handle anything!

According to my calculations you need over 0.9999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999c.

This velociraptor got dipped in a bucket of gender fluid. Xe came out all colourful (quite possibly a bit too garish, as with most pride flags).

Yes! I, too, many times was surprised to see what a person only heard in the radio so far looks like.
Not so long ago I was listening to the radio. The radio man's nickname would translate to English as "bear". There was a phone call from a woman. She said that when she was a kid she thought that he was an actual bear talking on the radio.

Maybe I'm magic because yours didn't trigger anything for me. Only a notification for the post on this page where you quoted me.

Ah, looks like you xuys figured it out. Sorry that editing caused the issue.

This is all you, Jose.

Thanks so much for the bags explanation - that bit felt to me like the line in the poem that's only there because it rhymes with something that needs to be there, and it was bugging me that I couldn't see what was playing the part of the necessary line. I was thinking that it'd have to be really important considering that the GLR was kinda tired of drawing newpix by then. What you say makes sense; there's nothing unnecessary about character development with the usual Timely sprinkle of suspense. And he probably knew the end was going to be rushed, so better take the Time to develop that scene properly. Maybe I can let that go now.

One can define the boundary individually, of course, but for a more universal definition I fell on the moment in time (in college) when most people are in coma. I figured that if you're up after 6am, you're not going to bed until the next sunset. If you're up before 6am, you were probably pulling an all-nighter. And 6am is a curvilinear number, so there's no danger of raptors. 7 obviously wouldn't work, and 5 is right out.
I'm about to molpy down as soon as I post, so you see why I can't use 6am. I was trying to line the Beanie survey up with a map, and failing, and suddenly it's not the Time I want it to be. At least there's no glow in the sky yet.

1190: "Time": THIS ЯОЯЯІМ ТТО IS TOO CH*RPING KEYBOARD-SMASHING

Todip I saw sky writing kind of like this (except that it was a commercial message). There were definitely five planes flying in formation. At first I thouht they were drones but maybe not. That company has a patent (US 7082706) that won't expire for another 5 yips or so. If it really was human pilots, I'm pretty impressed that they'd fly in formation like that just for skywriting. It seems the cost of such skilled pilots and their insurance would make this type of sky advertising too expensive to compete with the others.

ggh wrote:Why did the GLR have Rosetta ask for Cuegan's bags? […]
The floor seems like it could hold them just fine.

I think it's equivalent to "offer[ing] a drink or snack" : a local custom, in which taking the bags of travellers is a signal that the host intends to give them a place to rest for the night.

Lately, I have spent time making a bunch of Japanese-style buildings in a Minecraft-like game for the iPad (details). The latest of these (last photo near the bottom of that thread) had a stage so I made the building into a full theatre (for live performance), with all the sorts of things a theatre needs.
  I realised how much I love theatres and started doing some online searches. I found two I'd like to mention and ask about.

The Royal Łazienki amphitheatre in Warsaw (Agrykoli 1 , 00-460 Warszawa , PL) is just the kind of place I'd love to see outdoor Shakespeare. This is what I call a "classical" theatre, i.e. something imitating the ancient Greek and Roman designs. This one has a canal separating the house from the stage (a moat for the fourth wall?), and some other beautiful features. Unfortunately, it only has half the number of large playwright statues (8 vs. 16) of the original.
  What is your favourite outdoor performance venue?

Naive Theatre Liberec in Czechia (Moskevská 32/18 , 460 31 Liberec , CZ) has a curious history involving a design (never implemented) that would have added a larger (300 seats) hall in an (uphill) adjoining building that would have resulted in two halls that share a single stage:

Image


I can imagine a few advantages this arrangement might confer, but it seems things would have been better overall by just using the new space for a completely separate sound-insulated (though smaller) performance space. Perhaps they thought so too.
  What theatre building have you seen that has the most interesting (or unusual) internal layout?

Also, in general, what's your favourite theatre? (I guess mine would be Die Wiener Staatsoper.)

Well, ok, you could be drawn and quartered, burned at the stake, chopped up into little bits and fed to raptors. But that's not so bad, is it? You've survived the Voldeframe - you can handle anything!

Ah, so you've heard how competitive orchestra auditions are. :)

My friend asked me the same thing, and I said that I could play so badly that they'll say, "We are never hiring her!" But then I realized they aren't hiring me now, so I wouldn't be any worse off. And considering how I tend to completely overbook myself, the chances are that if there was an audition at a later date, I probably wouldn't have time to practice for that either. So, yeah, I guess I'm going for it. Plus I had to give a $50 deposit, so I have to go or I won't get that back! 8-)

I think ucim's point was that it's only an egosearch if you're searching for yourself. If you're searching for someone else it's not egotistical, unless of course you're searching to see what that person is saying about you. :wink:

I'm glad to see all the work being down with ZZ, especially since it seems to have brought our foxmolpy back to us. :)

I don't think your avatar is garish, thunk. I think it's lovely.
