Changes


In light of recent comments that annoyed me, and disregard for the rules I set forth concerning commenting, I've decided to allow comments only by approval. If your comment is related to the post, you're good. If you're dragging your problems from other blogs to mine, I'm deleting it. What the other Masterminds do with their blogs is entirely their business, and I don't want people's grievances being dragged over here to irritate me for no reason.  They can do what they want--it's their blog and you should respect that. All other requirements in the italics above the comment box here still stand.  I've got enough nonsense to deal with in the real world where things actually matter.  I don't need people here giving me problems, too.  It's bad enough that I can't get in the mood to make the next episode--any more crap and I'm just going to wait until Portal 2 is released to continue the series.



I haven't slept in two days, to the point where even the slightest irritation makes it impossible for me to fall asleep at all.  I am INCREDIBLY cranky, INCREDIBLY annoyed at EVERYTHING, and I just want to write in peace.  I'll probably change things again when I'm in a better mood, but at the moment, in the wise words of Daddy's Ten Rules to Dating: 
"I've got a shotgun, a shovel, and five acres behind my house--do NOT trifle with me."


That is all.

  1. Do what you have to do, Cyh. Especially if it means getting some damn sleep.

    You rock, hard, and you shouldn't let anybody tell you otherwise or keep you from doing what you do so well.

    Just my $0.02, feel free to ignore/delete.

  3. I have some sleep tea if you wanna give that a try. It's quite tasty with a teaspoon of honey :)

  4. Horrible when you can't go to sleep. Happens to me occasionally, and it sucks. Forget about us, until you feel like you can do anything besides sleep. Work on getting your sleep in first, or else you'll start to go crazy.

  5. @StreetKid: Whine all you want. I've banned you from all times and continua, douchetard. Where you are now, no one can hear you scream.

  6. @Cyh: When I was reading the comments and responses in that blog entry, I was getting really worried and a little upset and also very confused. I mean, there is no need for those kind of words, absolutely no need at all.

    I really do hope you are feeling better. If you feel you need to delete this, it's fine. I just got worried and wanted to check by to see how everything was. I am also sorry if anything I said may have inadvertently sparked anything. I just wanted that line of insanity that you and I were reading to end.

  10. @Ian: Uh...yes. Yes I shall. Honestly, I don't care if someone thinks I'm being mean. It's my blog...money?

    I need money something terrible. Anybody wanna buy a broken CRT monitor? Because I have one. I don't need it anymore. I've got HIGH DEFINITION, bitches!

    Okay, sleepy time. 3_3..zZZ

  13. Man, you probably need to put earplugs on your ears so you can't be annoyed by noises, and try counting sheep if you can't fall asleep, Just saying.

    By the way, when is the next Chell's Mind going to come out?

    ReplyDelete
  14. @Ryan R: Well, he's the one who sent me the list, so yes.

    @Anon: The fourth dimension, inextricably wrought with space's three dimensions.

  15. @Anon2: When people stop asking me when the next episode is coming out. So far, I've been pestered every day, so I haven't even started thinking about the script, let alone recorded the video or VA stuff. Instead, I'm editing and writing my books. I have about five other things besides Chell's Mind that I like to do, and people continuously asking for the next episode just make me want to work on something else. It might seem like an innocent question, but when twenty people a day keep asking that same innocent question, it gets pretty annoying.

    Patience is a virtue. Impatience just irritates the people who give you all free entertainment.

  16. But does "time" really exist? Or is it just a figment of our imagination? It is not proven. We try to measure it. We see age. But "what is time."

    -The Riddler

    ReplyDelete
  17. @Anon: It exists. Physics requires that it exists. That's why it moves slower when you travel close to the speed of light, and faster when you're not moving, as well as why clocks out in orbit move at a different speed than clocks on Earth.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I disagree. Whatever. I'll be back with more riddles. If you can take them.

    -The Riddler

    ReplyDelete
  19. @Anon: Time does exists. The comment you made would make more sense if you say "how do we measure time?" rather than saying "does time exists?". The currently established method of measuring time (time zones covering the planet such as GMT -05:00) could be adjusted once people decide to move from our planet.


    @Cyh: What you had said made me remember something I learned about a little while ago. I've heard that GPS satellites have a problem with their own internal clocks staying in sync with clocks on earth. The planet's gravity plays as a factor. Time for the satellites passes faster up in orbit. From it's point of view, we are moving slower. It is kind of the same concept as if we were looking at someone falling into a black hole. They would look like they were holding still, but from the other perspective, they would be moving at normal speed.

    ReplyDelete
  20. @Anon: Unless you're a physicist, saying "I disagree" to an established theory and the observed data which back it up just sounds pretentious. And no more riddles, please. I'm too tired to rifle through your tangents.

    @CrazedNighthawk: Yeah, if you were watching someone fall into the black hole, it would appear as though time has stopped for them. However, from their POV, it's normal. GPS satellites have their own atomic clocks, each of which must be synced with the master clock on earth every so often. If they didn't get synced, our satellites would be off by miles at this point. Billionths of a second really matter in GPS.

  21. Cyh, youre awesome. No rush for the next mind episode, we know you have a life! Enjoy it! And not sleeping sucks, i think we've all been there.

    @CrazedNighthawk: that's very interesting! I didn't know that, i guess you do learn something everyday (cliches ftw).

  22. I see you've met my friend. But kow 'bout a joke to lighten everybody up, hm?

    An old couple was watching TV one evening, and the husband got up to go to the kitchen. His wife told him to get her some iced tea, and knowing that the years had taken their toll on his memory, she told him to write it down.

    "I can remember iced tea," he protested.

    "But I want sugar in my tea too," she told him, "so write it down."

    He told her he could remember iced tea with sugar.

    "I want a slice of lemon too." she said, "Just write it down."

    He left the room grumbling to himself. A few minutes later he came back with a plate full of mashed potatoes for her.

    "Now look what you've done!" she yelled at him, "You forgot my gravy!"

    Hee Hee Hee! Ha ha ha!

  23. @Cyh: Actually, the person falling into the black hole would become invisible to you very quickly. Light is redshifted to longer wavelengths as it rises away from the black hole. So if they are emitting visible light at some particular wavelength, you would see light at some longer wavelength. The wavelengths get longer and longer as they get closer and closer to the horizon. Eventually, it won't be visible light at all: it will be infrared radiation, then radio waves. Finally, one last photon will be emited before passing beyond the event horizon... then nothing ever agan.

    Great series by te way.

    P.S. You know, you should put up a donation system (paypal or something). You provide us with quality entertainment. You deserve appropiate compensation.

  24. Wait, if we (the fans) paid you money, would you be more tempted to work on Chells Mind? O_O

    So tempting...

    ReplyDelete
  25. @Mr. Htims: I don't really want to set up a donation thing. Then I'll just get annoying people complaining to me about how they paid and I'm still not uploading something every week. It wouldn't be a big enough incentive--I just need a regular job.

    ReplyDelete
  26. @Mr. Htims: As nice of a gesture it would be for people to donate money, I do agree with Cyh. Besides, this shouldn't be about money. It should be about expressing the story as told from the perspective of the character Chell (with Lydia's personality (who I still don't know where that is supposed to be from)). It's supposed to be a fun thing, not a money thing.

  27. Cyh!!!! I'm totally going to do this and figured (since, well, duh!) you'd like this too:

    (that's funny, just the other day I was thinking I could use a good wall mirror in my bedroom and bathroom.

  28. @Ian: Holy crap, I'm so doing that with the wall Mirror I already have. XD

    ReplyDelete
  29. Now you're thinking with mirrors.

  30. wow! nice find.

    now what if you put two of them across from each other....

  32. If you wish to be a strong woman, be my guest. I don't care for arrogance, and don't expect my help if you need it from others. Two can play at your game. I'll be happy to oblige.

  33. @adam.crook: Well, people like you are the reason why these changes went into effect...NINE MONTHS AGO.

    Pay attention to dates, would you? I don't need help from inattentive people like you.

If you're rude, I'll delete you from the space-time continuum, as well as the time-space discontinuum, and also this blog. Then I'll send Hannibal Lecter after you--he likes to eat rude people.

After reviewing comments, I have decided to include Valve Time, as well as variable-Valve-time--with Lift--to the above list of obliteration-friendly continua.
