Re: 1190: Time

It's weird to run into OTTers elsewhere on the internet. I was reading through the comments on a dithering algorithm and noticed one posted by mrob. I tried to find the mrob there and I failed. But the dithering was interesting to me. You probably can guess why. Woah, I was reading this same post a...

Reeee: 1190: "Time"

Confusion is so confusing. I wonder why that is? Cool to see new people stumbling on the thread. In 100 years (or 11,00) some internet explorer (no pun intended) will find the thread and marvel at the bizarre dialects and primitive society. They'll get a grant from some internet conservation agency ...
