I quite enjoyed that. So much that I made this: http://www.jigsawplanet.com/?rc=play&pid=1f30e1379c66. (Of course, by "made" I mean, I took a screen shot and uploaded it to the puzzle site.)

I'm not going to admit how long that took me, but yes, treeish puzzle!

I definitely didn't design this to be easily jigsawable! That was a tough one. 76:06 here...

I might be ninja'd on this... but did you perform all of the instruments yourself? I'm also thoroughly impressed that you were able to make 'molpy molpy molpy molpy molpy' sound metalish and not just silly.

Yay, thanks! :mrgreen: Yes I performed it all myself. Well, the drums are midi sequenced, but yeah.

Take your time to read the mouseover text on each frame. Let me know what y'all think :)

I think I'm missing something here. The current frame shows the '42' and the one before it is giving me an image error. And the one before THAT is one I saw on Thursday or Friday or something. Was there a .gif I missed? Or, according to yappo's reply... a woolpy? :|

Oh! I saw The 42 newslide, didn't realize there would be more. Another fun, RELATED 42 fact is that XKCD, if you take the numerical equivalent of each letter (a=1,b=2 etc.) it also adds up to 42!

@yappo - Finally got a chance to enjoy The Metal! Hah, awesomeful! Nice Mustainesque vocals and neat solos. Thanks for the present. Saw the kitty at the end of the video, but will enjoy the rest later. :)

P.S. How could any OTTer not enjoy that, metal fan or not? :x

For now, just indicate whether or not you would be interested in participating, I'll contact you via PM to get actual responses.

I believe I've said this several times.. but you are so well-spoken and creative in all your time-capsule past present posts that I don't know what we'd do without them. They're the chirping sparkly new addition to this needle pulled thing and help make it what it is now, post T** E**. So thank you. And please keep going.
The mood of this latest post has a similar 'feeling' to Marvin the Martian from, of course, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I say that in a complimenting manner because the apathetic tone made your RetrOTTification that much funnier. ;)

Finally started playing CB. I had to let it soak in that the build-up requires Waiting for It. But I just Ninja'd 10 newpixbots simultaneously. That chirping hurts. :cry:

And now Val's second-true-Blitz comes to an end as I am finally at Present. However... it took me all dip at work to kvetchup, and now: Molpy out!

Thanks jovialbard and azule!

azule - I'm not sure what you mean by Mustangesque :oops: Is that a band/singer I should know?

And the solo's like, the worst part. :P I'm a useless lead guitarist, unless it's more lyrical melodic stuff. Can't do the fast shred stuff to save my life. Like, I'm really proud of the solo in One Thousand Posts since that's a slower, more soaring kinda thing, but this one was just me trying to pretend I can do metal soloing and not doing a very good job. :P

Honey with m*stard? Couldn't imagine what that must be like... I'm a very condimenty person. I love lots on everything :P. Ketchup, mayo (but only really Hellmanns), HP sauce, Tartar sauce (with fish)... I like m*stard but only in very small amounts. It's very overwhelming, can't stand too much.

This is a post from the Time Foundation. Once you reach this post, please report to the Future Present that you've reached Beacon Alpha.

You can use this Station's services to rest and get ready for the rest of your journey. All our services are designed based on almost one thousand pages of experience.
Our Tracker allows you to check how far have you gone and how much of your travel is still to be done, as well as the distance to the next station. You can clean yourself up at a private lavatory, then rest peacefully on a double-sized bed. Dinner and breakfast include food from all cultures, and you can eat as much as you want to. We also provide exclusive nighttime services for carriers of friendly codes.

Additionally, we offer a free train service between all Stations.

This was amazing.

Well, in this film(polish, has subtitles but with some mustard) we tried to measure the solar wind. (At least that's what we tell people we're doing...)

I also think the c***ping m*****d at the end should be used as a kind of ident for all OTTish videos :mrgreen:

And the solo's like, the worst part. :P I'm a useless lead guitarist, unless it's more lyrical melodic stuff. Can't do the fast shred stuff to save my life. Like, I'm really proud of the solo in One Thousand Posts since that's a slower, more soaring kinda thing, but this one was just me trying to pretend I can do metal soloing and not doing a very good job. :P

Correct me if I'm wrong, but might azule be referring to Dave Mustaine? I was thinking that you'd do a good Mustaine impression as I was rocking out to Metal Molpies.

And the solo was great! Certainly not the pure shredding speed of an Yngwie Malmsteen or Herman Li, but it was very well composed and your performance was solid. A very good result, especially considering that you were working out of your comfort zone.


Oh, and I see balthasar posted his* video. I'll have to watch that as soon as I can get net access that doesn't block youtube (stupid filters). I hear from very reputable sources that it is excellent.

Thanks slinches! Yeah I though maybe he was referring to Mustaine but I wasn't sure.

Erm ... I need some help. I have no idea how to play the castle.chirpingmustard game. Like, AT ALL. There is nothing familiar or recognizable on the page except the image from the OTC. Is this a format that is familiar to others? If so, can I be directed to something that gives me bit of a clue as to what to do?

It looks like if I click on the image, I get a bunch of +1's floating on the page, and my number of castles go up. But .... well, then what???

THANKS!

You click the OTC frame to dig sand, and when you have enough it gets turned into castles. Castles can then be used to buy things from the store which either dig more sand for you (top row) or build more castles on the ONG (row below that) or boosts which make those tools more powerful or give certain perks (row below that). The ONG is every half hour, just like it was at the start of the OTC. It later changes to hours, at the same point it did in the OTC. The more castles you have, the more sand it requires to get the next one, so the best thing to do it click enough to get enough castles for a newpixbot and a bucket or two, then just
Spoiler:
wait for it

until the ONG, when the newpixbot will activate 12 minutes after the ONG and give a castle. Then over time you just buy more things and your amount of sand and castles grows and grows. It's a game that, true to the OTC, is played mostly by
Spoiler:
waiting for it.

And the object of the game is pretty much to just get ch*rploads of castles and buy loads of everything. While collecting badges for certain achievements in the process.

It took me a while to figure out too. Hope that helps :)
