Yeah, I figured that if the Earth was gibbous, there's no way it'd be daytime on that side of the moon ... ;)
Mon 25 Oct 2010 10:02:08 EDT
So does this mean our viewfinder is acting up to were it jumps from past to present to future in any given order as of now?
Mon 25 Oct 2010 13:44:48 EDT
okay, so I get that the title's supposed to be red on the front page for some mysterious reason, probably, but any reason it keeps switching back and forth from red to orange and back today KM?
Mon 25 Oct 2010 14:01:54 EDT
I think it's a matter of visited coloring or not. The bulk of the title is switching from orange to red, which is distracting (me, at least) from the subtler change of typical orange to other typical orange.
Mon 25 Oct 2010 14:37:31 EDT
Yeah, it has slightly different colors depending on whether it's by itself, part of a link you haven't clicked on, or part of a link you haven't clicked on. And individual "link to someone's comment" links are marked "visited" or not separately from the main link.
It might also have something to do with the fact that up until last night or so, I'd been fiddling with the CSS files practically since I made the page.
Mon 25 Oct 2010 15:01:15 EDT
yah I figured you had separate CSS settings for the active/visited link colors for this particular page, but when they kept switching I began to wonder if it was freaking out and not loading them anymore or something
Mon 25 Oct 2010 18:02:16 EDT
Wait, I *know* that panel wasn't in space last time I looked. Dammit, Yuffin!
Mon 25 Oct 2010 18:05:08 EDT
. . . Uh. Nevermind. Either I got gapped or I'm going slightly insane.
Mon 25 Oct 2010 18:25:49 EDT
That was what looked weird with the image. I could tell it was on the moon, but it would be night on the moon, and in any case, the sky isn't opaque from the moon. Or at least it never looks that way. It should be dark to pitch black. I prefer dark, but that's aesthetics. Oh, by the way, awesome comic, muffin.
Mon 25 Oct 2010 19:14:12 EDT
Okay, now I KNOW that the sky wasn't dark and the Earth wasn't that visible when I first saw this comic...
Mon 25 Oct 2010 19:51:09 EDT
Wait a minute... Are you telling me there's actually a plot?
Mon 25 Oct 2010 20:07:26 EDT
Notice how it has a modified-time. And how I made a comment above. :P
Mon 25 Oct 2010 21:00:43 EDT
I knew it! I will henceforth call you Yuffin whenever something like this happens.
Mon 25 Oct 2010 21:12:04 EDT
I figure I might as well note the piddling investigation I did just now:
This character may be referred to as "Asky" (I think...). My by-now poor memories of my Japanese culture class, as well as my highly limited knowledge of Touhou canon, mean that I have no idea what that could be short for. (The "unvisited" color doesn't seem to match that of the Yatagarasu in In Possession Of Your Faculties, so that's one avenue off, probably.) Extrapolating from Chinese mythology, I'd guess that there are up to 9 (or possibly 10) hell-ravens or similar beings that have consumed corpses of three-legged crows, two of those being Asky and Okuu.
Okay, that's enough Wikipedia. (Random design question: how many people click the "Reset" button down here? How many do it intentionally?)
Mon 25 Oct 2010 21:39:04 EDT
You've, uh, certainly done a whole lot research than I ever did.
Mon 25 Oct 2010 21:52:38 EDT
Aside from poking around in the CSS files and comparing colors, everything in that comment was based on stuff linked to from In Possession Of Your Faculties. Two pages. Two of them. Quite simply, if you can't find it in your plans, or the character links at the bottom, it's guesswork.
(The Wikipedia article offers rather more Touhou-related detail than I expected, though I guess it's not much, in the grand scheme of things.)
Mon 25 Oct 2010 22:02:20 EDT
Ah, k. I actually forgot that "asky" is what I named the CSS-class, since I had to fudge things a bit ... :3
Tue 26 Oct 2010 02:56:43 EDT
Okay now I understand what is going on. I'm pretty sure that there will be no snuggles with Cirno.
@KM: By the way how many times did you have to edit this strip?
Wed 27 Oct 2010 04:19:55 EDT
This page itself? Once. :o
Wed 27 Oct 2010 08:29:42 EDT
Wait... "asky"... "A Sky". Ffff, how did I not notice this a day and a half ago?
I was going to draw further conclusions from this, but I rechecked the Touhou wiki, and it turns out my speculation gets deep-sixed by name order. Now, my only conclusion is that I have thoroughly confused myself.
Wed 27 Oct 2010 12:08:53 EDT
Touhou wiki? That won't save you here. We need a Nekokayou wiki.
Wed 27 Oct 2010 13:53:51 EDT
I was hitting it up for basic background information. The hierarchy of information I'm assuming is, for these purposes, Muffin canon trumps Touhou canon trumps historical record. Unless Muffin changed the intended name order as it applies to Okuu, the speculation I was going to lay out simply doesn't work.
(For the record, "asky" -> "A Sky" -> "kuu" -> "Utsuho". But that's her given name, so I'm barking up a tree in the wrong forest. Unless maybe it's some sort of traditional family name thing. Would/Does that happen?)
The one guess I'm pretty sure about is that there are a total of 9 dead three-legged crows, two of which we've seen to have been eaten. (There could be 10, but I'm pretty sure that would lead to the end of all life on earth so... probably not.)
Incidentally, for this comment, those numbers, that order—BANNED
So yeah, I'm doing my best to spin a lot from a little. I'm not sure a dedicated Nekokayou wiki would help all that much, because it's not like everything is just going to be a continual rearrangement solely of established concepts. Just not sufficient for purposes of fannish extrapolation. (Of course, with the original MSPA, it's worse, because many references are retroactive, and therefore not foreshadowed at all. I don't have as good a feel for CSA's reference speed chess factor.)
Wed 27 Oct 2010 16:43:51 EDT
Where is "there are nine of 'em" from? :o
And for the record, "asky" comes from the fact that you can't put numbers in the names of CSS-classes (or maybe just at the beginning), and I didn't want anything longer than four letters. :3
Wed 27 Oct 2010 17:00:09 EDT
From the fact that, in Chinese legend, there were originally ten three-legged crows, and all but one of them were killed when they went rogue and put every sun in the sky at once (which was a Bad Thing). I am assuming, therefore, that there is still one such crow alive, to prevent the world from being plunged into eternal night. (I'm applying Chinese myth because "Ten Evil Suns" is apparently a reference to this.)
I mean, by lack of a sun. People have ways to go about these things.
Point is, it's either nine or ten, and I'm leaning towards nine.
Numbers... damn. I wish I could see something in that to go off half-cocked about, but for the moment, it just seems... mysterious. (For the record, no more shenanigans of the type I struck out above. When I did that, I hit my personal quota on those. Forever. Just so you know.)

MW, you're thinking WAY more into this than KM is ;)
