Re: 1663: "Garden"

I guess the association is red -> hot and blue -> cold, with a mixture of the two giving a more temperate zone garden.

I'm up to three women now. I suspect the clone army shall be complete by tomorrow morning.

Re: 1663: Garden

I've now got a second copy of shoulder-hair woman, far off to the right, hiding behind a shrub staring at a copy of herself in the distance. It's slightly creepy, for some reason.

Re: 1663: Garden

It's giving those hindquarters a good soak, obviously. Helps relieve the tension.

In other news, it seems things have stopped materialising in my garden here. I guess I can always try another and come back to this one later.

Re: 1663: Garden

Well, since we're posting screenshots now:ImageThe rest of it seems reasonable enough, but I'm at a loss to explain the platform. It's like... some kind of watchtower, or a diving board.

Re: 1663: Garden

@ThemePark: Either save the hash when you have it, or just try hitting the back button in your browser. That saved my garden twice now.

And while I was writing this, a platform too.
Interesting, I have the same features.

Edit: And now the woman from http://xkcd.com/440/ panel 3 has appeared too.

Re: 1663: Garden

I just tried on a different device: the first 8 bytes of the hash are completely different, but the rest of it is nearly identical; the second and last parts (in terms of the digits being separated by dashes) have been incremented by a few though.

Re: 1663: Garden

The lamps do appear if you wait long enough, it seems. I have a cactus, and that's about it. I'll fetch the Tequila.

Re: 1663: Garden

The server's taking quite a while to reply, on the order of a minute - it's obviously overwhelmed. The browser is POSTing state information every time you make a change, but the replies don't seem to be anything beyond an echo of what's sent.

Re: 1663: Garden

On one refresh I actually got a tree in the garden. It didn't seem to be doing anything other than just sitting there, though.

Re: 1663: Garden

I can only presume you're meant to muck around with the lighting and wait until something grows. Although, I hit refresh, and now it doesn't seem to get past the spinning tree screen - a loading screen of some sort?

Re: 1663: ???

I've been playing with it for the past few minutes, and apart from mixing colours together, I haven't had anything grow.

Maybe I'm just a terrible gardener.

Re: 1329: "Standing"

The real question is how do you use those annoying trackpads on the laptop? Precise control would probably prove to be a bit difficult. Clearly, more research needs to be done in this area.

Re: 1308: "Christmas Lights"

Living in the Southern Hemisphere, it took a little while to get the idea of 'fire' for the big spectrum. The idea of fireplace at Christmas just doesn't 'click' to me.
