Give it time, Arthur...
This must be Thursday. I never could get the hang of Thursdays.

Coincidentally, it really is Thursday! For a few seconds at least.


Thursday's child has far to go. I was born on a Thursday meself.


2 more hours in London, 6 more hours in NGville, and 7 more hours for me.


I'm actually usually thinking in London/my own time these days instead of NG time/my own time like back in the day. EVE Online has primarily EUTZ players, although a healthy # of USTZ and some AUTZ as well, but the server is in London and so's the official time of anything going on in-game, so gotta think in London time a lot. ;)

Time zones are so complicated. I never know the time of places where I am not at, haha.

Plus this stupid daylight savings time. I really really hope they get rid of this soon.

Is that a new record or...? Ah. Right. Music. Congrats anyway!


Only ~70 submissions so far? My god... B may have just turned 18 (IT'S LEGAL, FOLKS!), but you'd think it was off to the old folks' home by now with this level of portal activity. Then again, I checked the id#s and apparently there's only been 21,000 or so movies and games submitted from August 16th 2018 to August 14th 2019, so... wowza.


I was just thinking this year's Clock Day seemed way more active than last year though. :) Tempted to make a statual comparison but: time. I'm happy to see it's still going strong each of these years though, seemed like for a while it was fading, somewhere after the last redesign, in those dark and dystopian days of waning interest... but it's all coming back again. People are spending more and more time here again! Clocks. Highly relevant.


One of these years I shall actually contribute something...


Noiiiiishe, mate, noiiishe!


Thank you thank you!

ahaha... just meant the portal seemed a bit quiet during primetime USTZ yesterday. But I checked back a few hours later and there were a fair bit of new entries. In the end, looking at midnight to midnight on Clock Day, there were.... 89 total flashes submitted on CD19. That compared to 87, 84, 89, 85 the previous 4 years. Pretty steady as she goes there the past half-decade, eh?


As for me, I went from 44 to 44 to 47 to 86 to 85 to 100+ saves and counting over the past 6 Clock Days... yes, counting a bit of saving a bit before midnight and a bit after midnight at the start/end of each CD, so more than just the literal day of.

I've already made the statual comparison so you don't have to! ;D But yeah, you were right, it's not really down at all, in fact... the # of flashes was the highest since 2016 when it was also 89, as per the above.


One of these years I shall actually contribute something...


Being a fan/viewer/listener/reader of content is a contribution in itself. If there were no audience for things, artists would only enjoy their own creations and not be able to share them at all. (which some certainly do by choice... but I mean even if they want to share... they wouldn't be able to. and that would suck)

Thankee kindly, sir!

But... you can still get the exact same amount of sleep, man! it just changes when the sun rises and sets. (sigh) Go to bed an hour earlier. ;)

... I passed 24000 saves years and years ago, man. Back in the days when blams were way easier to get than saves, my #s just happened to heading for 24k and 36k so I aimed for that... but the 24k (aside from being a nice reversed nod to 42) wasn't really something I was that attached to. Just a good round number.


In fact, I just passed 35,000 a Clock Day or two or three ago, though, and am now around 35,300 after yesterday's voting. Meaning I'll be re-retiring completely once I can get it up to around 36,000 like my blam count.


I wonder how often Wade (or whoever does it these days) clears out old whistled stuff and the wrongly whistled stuff gets put back in the portal and boom, lots of people get a buncha protects all at once.


Things like that = why I'll have to creep up on 36k very very very slowly once I'm a bit closer.

Yes, it's nice to not have to worry about the clock on the smartphone and computer. In our car it was too complicated to change the clock, so we never changed it. I don't know how easy it is in our new car, though.

Once I reached Supreme Commander I vowed only to vote to pass a submission if it was submitted by a friend or someone who I followed. I wanted to work on the blam to save ratio so I really only get any saves on clock day. I've probably missed out on about 10,000 saves over the years doing this and have only gain about 1-2 blams a day. I should stop worrying about the ratio and just go back to gaining the points while I still can.



I wonder how often Wade (or whoever does it these days) clears out old whistled stuff and the wrongly whistled stuff gets put back in the portal and boom, lots of people get a buncha protects all at once.


Does that actually happen? I only mod the forums and reviews, but I never saw that happen before.

Way steadier than I thought it was! Did you track numbers over the years before that as well? Curious if the activity decline I seem to remember was all in my mind. Maybe I just wasn't as active.

How do you actually properly count that?

Thanks for that! I'm bewildered, but pretty cool.

(which some certainly do by choice... but I mean even if they want to share... they wouldn't be able to. and that would suck)


Thanks. I still want to make something though. It's easier to consume than to create, and so simply consuming feels like taking the easy route, and the easy route's not the route I want to take eternally!


Consumption feels like the eternal side hustle, but on top of that: something bigger.

Like an echo of wisdom to which I listen. :) But it's hard. Winter. So dark and dystopian. You don't really want to get up at all over here. The daylight saving shift arrives like a warm embrace, one more hour of blissful dream time each new all the more darkening dawn of day! Till you can no longer differentiate between day and night, and life is a haze between two points by which the worlds bridge and reality is obscured in a crescent crescendo.


Not that beneficial sleeping habits are currently a forte of mine either... right now.
