Countdown

Post by ratammer »

There's currently a countdown at the top of the site, and a line has started to appear, Time-style, in the corner of the image it's using as a background. Someone has set up a page that automatically adds the new image whenever it updates: https://munvoseli.github.io/xkcd-countdown/
I'm a rat, but you may remember me as a bird.

Now that a curve and a second bit of line has appeared, I'm gonna go wildly speculate, that it's the vertical stabiliser of an aircraft.

I reckon it's the trailer for a Time sequel. Time 2... Party!

I figured that was what the "Rosetta" thread was. Longpix make for a much more relaxed waiting experience.

It's turning into a plane. No idea where or why yet though. I wonder if the GLR is going on holiday soon?

Now there's some kind of tentacle reaching out?

I wonder if it's a cat.
If I disappear from the forum, I can still be reached via the "contact us" link at the bottom of the page.

Now there is a wingtip visible, and the tentacle/tail/scarf up above.
