I have Automata Control 52 and enough Blackprints for 3 more levels but can't afford the exponential chip costs :(

ETA oh I did it again! Um...

So BlitzGirl ketchupped just before I comad, and comad just before I ketchupped. One of us is out of sync with normalcy...

I think that's because he/she doesn't like long, unbroken paragraphs, but I could be wrong.

I do that sometimes. Mostly when I'm talking about several different things.

Or to make a point like this one.

I also massively overuse ellipses, not just here but in all typed communication.

Spoiler:
Reynard's Last Run

Like a hound for stay, like a stag for swift,
With his shadow beside like spinning drift.
Past the gibbet-stock all stuck with nails,
Where they hanged in chains what had hung at jails,
Past Ashmundshowe where Ashmund sleeps,
And none but the tumbling peewit weeps,
Past Curlew Calling, the gaunt grey corner
Where the curlew comes as a summer mourner,
Past Blowbury Beacon shaking his fleece,
Where all winds hurry and none brings peace,
Then down, on the mile-long green decline
Where the turf's like spring and the air's like wine,
Where the sweeping spurs of the downland spill
Into Wan Brook Valley and Wan Dyke Hill.

On he went with a galloping rally
Past Maesbury Clump for Wan Brook Valley,
The blood in his veins went romping high
"Get on, on, on to the earth or die."
The air of the downs went purely past,
Till he felt the glory of going fast,
Till the terror of death, though there indeed,
Was lulled for a while by his pride of speed;
He was romping away from hounds and hunt,
He had Wan Dyke Hill and his earth in front,
In a one mile more when his point was made,
He would rest in safety from dog or spade;
Nose between paws he would hear the shout
Of the "gone to earth" to the hounds without,
The whine of the hounds, and their friend Catherine feet gadding,
Scratching the earth, and their breath pad­ padding,
He would hear the horn call hounds away,
And rest in peace till another day.

In one mile more he would lie at rest
So for one mile more he would go his best.
He reached the dip at the long droop's end
And he took what speed he had still to spend.
So down past Maesbury beech clump grey,
That would not be green till the end of May,
Past Arthur's Table, the white chalk boulder,
Where pasque flowers purple the down's grey shoulder
Past Quichelm's Keeping, past Harry's Thorn
To Thirty Acre all thin with corn.
As he raced the corn towards Wan Dyke Brook,
The pack had view of the way he took,
Robin hallooed from the downland's crest,
He capped them on till they did their best.
The quarter mile to the Wan Brook's brink
Was raced as quick as a man can think.

And here, as he ran to the huntsman's yell­ing,
The fox first felt that the pace was telling,
His body and lungs seemed all grown old,
His legs less certain, his heart less bold,
The hound-noise nearer, the hill slope steeper,
The thud in the blood of his body deeper,
His pride in his speed, his joy in the race
Were withered away, for what use was pace?
He had run his best, and the hounds ran better.
Then the going worsened, the earth was wetter.
Then his brush drooped down till it sometimes dragged,
And his fur felt sick and his chest was tagged
With taggles of mud, and his pads seemed lead,
It was well for him he'd an earth ahead.

Down he went to the brook and over,
Out of the corn and into the clover,
Over the slope that the Wan Brook drains,
Past Battle Tump where they earthed the Danes,
Then up the hill that the Wan Dyke rings
Where the Sarsen Stones stand grand like kings.
Seven Sarsens of granite grim,
As he ran them by they looked at him;
As he leaped the lip of their earthen paling
The hounds were gaining and he was failing.
He passed the Sarsens, he left the spur,
He pressed up hill to the blasted fir,
He slipped as he leaped the hedge; he slithered;
"He's mine," thought Robin. "He's done; he's dithered."

_At the second attempt he cleared the fence,
He turned half right where the gorse was dense,
He was leading hounds by a furlong clear.
He was past his best, but his earth was near.
He ran up gorse, to the spring of the ramp,
The steep green wall of the dead men's camp,
He sidled up it and scampered down
To the deep green ditch of the dead men's town.
Within, as he reached that soft green turf,
The wind, blowing lonely, moaned like surf,
Desolate ramparts rose up steep,
On either side, for the ghosts to keep.
He raced the trench, past the rabbit warren,
Close grown with moss which the wind made barren,
He passed the spring where the rushes spread,
And there in the stones was his earth ahead.
One last short burst upon failing feet,
There life lay waiting, so sweet, so sweet,
Rest in a darkness, balm for aches.

Spoiler:
The earth was stopped. It was barred with stakes.


This was read to me about sixty years ago.
I cried.
There are tears in my eyes now.
This is how I felt then.
This is how I feel now.
This is how I felt when Time ended.
This is how I feel now.

Spoiler:
You are all my friends.


Steady now. Surely you read all the words then and you know

the fox gets away in the end.

@mscha: Didn't realize how much I've missed the molpy hunt until I saw your last analysis.

Doing some analyzing as well I have to anounce that we are about three weeks away from the date when Time would have twice as long as it has been had it not **ded.
There are about twenty active Otters per week in the OTT, a number that is declining, but slowly; the basement now holds about 75 to 125 (depending on when you count someone as an otter), so it is really getting crowded down there. In the recent weeks there have been a few new Otters, even if they aren't very prolific. The creativity chart jumps around wildly but does not seem to show any constant decreasing.

The Database is still up and running, the basedata being updated about once or twice a week, but the Outside prevented me from adding any more Ottifications... but someone else did. (Thank you, whoever you are!) We are halting now at 865 not counting the recent boost in OTTercomics, so I guess there have to be really over 1.000! Rather impressive.

Ok, so that's all for now, have a nice sunday!

You mean, what original OTC newpix was altered? Not sure, I don't think it was a single newpix. (In fact, it shouldn't be, pretty much all hillside newpix are now under water.)
I've identified the tree as this one mirrored, but it doesn't match the slope.

creative! Its neat having some mystery here again. for all we know, GLR could secretly be giving us new ONGs :P
and this doesn't necessarily take place after the flood. The one I'm considering making is a prequel.

Maybe it would be good if OTTers molpied down for the weepend (not the daily version of molpy down). Then we get to know who won't be available and we get more posts, more...life.

Posts are life. I could have given more. Here's a post. There's another. And another. If only I had posted that transient thought, I could have made a difference.

If we die here, do we live elsewhere? If OTThers of you live on facebook, or drawception, or even in OtherThreads, are you really alive if you're dead here? I guess that's what the basement is. I feel like this basement is actually a graveyard, and the occupants are gholpies.

Wow, azule, those are pretty heavy thoughts. Oh, and FTFY.

Nice otty, Kit!

It's so exciting to see molpy hunting again! And treeish to see Scissitor. And the Drawception games were hilarious, thanks for sharing!

In other news, I received an alarming PM from Aluisio:

There were some other things as well, but I was concerned about this warning. Has something happened to ChronosDragon we don't know about? Or maybe Dracomax? Can any break the code?

Everything Aluisio says is over my head. I notice that each word is 5 letters and the first and fourth letters are from the subset ABCDE. Does that suggest anything?

Me neither, HES. :shock:
As a fellow OTTer who has been sucked into Drawception, I sympathize with your hotdog-infused brain, yappo.

In the "It's all related" department, I've been off doing my version of what Blitzgirl, et. al. did last wipend. Probably a bit more sedately. Specifically, my daughter took me to see a taping of Says You and one of the responses mentioned Baobabs. Alas, 'twas only a bluff. In any case, a good time was had. Now I must attempt more alignment of web-footed raptors, for the Wolpies and I will journey very soon.

There is a wiki, with a whole page about such things!


The wiki and this thread provide a place to join in clubby, posturing granfalloonery. I'm looking for a forum where people are discussing the comic.

Has anybody found one?


I have traveled from the past to warn of the foolhardiness of your quest. Remember, THIS thread started out as a place for people to discuss the comic "Time," and it has since spawned religions, sects, an order of knights, and a new language. Start another thread and who know what could happen? The entire world order could be overthrown, religious wars could be, the planets could slip out of alignment. More than likely, though, it would slip into more granfoolery.

Having said all that, despite the aforementioned GF, there is indeed running thread this thread an incredibly detailed and sometimes even thoughtful (sometimes not) conversation about The One True Comic. Just read through all 310 pages, and you'll see.

Now I return to the past, inspired by the brave Blitzgirl, to wade through the many posts, as one wades through a river, or perhaps an ocean.

Edited to cheer on Gingercat, and any other blitzers out there. Keep going, we're waiting for you in the future!


On Page 311, I have found my first Time Capsule! And it contains the magnificent word "granfoolery". This word brings to mind the concept of misbehaving old people, playing pranks on the younger generation who are blissfully unaware that "dear old grandma" is the cheekiest person present, hiding behind a façade of "I'm too old for such granfoolery"!

A delightful surprise for a Time Traveller such as myself, I must say... And I do believe it's time to update my signature with the musings that Time has provided thus far.

This is Schrödinger's Gingercat, continuing my holy Time Travelling quest!
I am Schrödinger's Gingercat.

Glass Ceilings!

Ding ding ding! You are 100% correct! This toy is the inspiration for glass ceilings.
I actually first programmed a software version of this puzzle over 10 years ago, in Visual Basic 6 :P Not sure how long I've had it. Maybe 15 years?

ETA you win a goat! The goat is this post.
