I guess try out the MolpyUp game if you haven't yet.

I've combined b's arrow addition with a modified version of mrob's auto clockspeed adjust, starting at 30 and increasing more slowly. It is indeed very addictive.
I've also made the game save every Tim you put a flag on a sandcastle, since I die far too often when it's going faster than about 70.
I still haven't gotten past 1800 in normal mode because... reasons.

So far, I took everything, including sand platforms, from the OTC – except the molpy and now the baltharrow.
I'll have a look at the grass, flowers, and sand in t-1 and t1i to find replacements.

Concerning molpies and other items, I don't want to [spoil] here what you'll encounter in the hotdog. But if you have a look at the files in the subdirectory assets you can see what is needed.

Well, you get two extra days this year. Also, filing is technically optional, it's paying they get fussed about.

Mostly the gators stay farther south, so I don't worry about them too much. Apparently someone spotted a 1/2 cue monitor lizard crossing a road nearby though. No word as to why.

Fixed. For a minute I thought it was a comment on my content - As in, it wasn't you telling her not to file.

I like TaxAct for doing mine. (But, I don't have state income tax, so mine is easier than some.)
But I think it was only about 10 whits, total.

This may make it a bit simpler: I compiled it into an app package using py2app. You should be able to just double-click it to launch it like any other Mac app.

Isn't the answer: "To get to the other side"?
Or maybe this SMBC comic contains the answer: https://www.smbc-comics.com/comic/2012-01-18
I haven't checked the context of SBN's comment, I must admit, so forgive me if I am writing nonsense.

By the way, I have also done a few whits of tax filing. That is, today I managed to find all the papers I was looking for, to everyone's surprise. I hope there aren't papers that I have forgotten that I should look for. But my deadline isn't until May 2; must have something to do with time zones I guess.

My daily paper didn't print an April fool's joke this year, as they traditionally do. Boring. They just printed an article explaining why not. But maybe that article was the April fool's joke...

OK, bedtime for me. Cheerio. (Sorry, I mean "molpy down". I have lost some OTTish skills in the basement.)

For better molpy-hunting, I removed the dialogue, and reframed the last panel. There's still some minor earthquake going on (is the Gibraltar dam starting to collapse?), but despite this, there might be some additional molepy activity to Cueball's right.

Another example of both the talents and the generosity of OTTers. Thank you taixzo! I am now happily MolpyingWayUp.Badly, but happily. :D Steakish hotdog, Sustainabilizer, and awesomeful ottification! At first I couldn't figure out what you did. :)

And steakish molpy-huntung, Zooman! I'll assume that there is another molpy to the right of the frame, just because I always prefer there to be molpies.

No worries. I'm sure both molpies and OTTers like Cheerios.

Oh, right, I hadn't even thought about the fact that it was that time of yip. I guess the mods have decided not to do it anymore, and just figured they wouldn't say anything and hope no one notices. Or maybe they're trying to lull us into a false sense of security...
