  1. 59! Just kidding, 0! No new record for you! Come on, everyone, you were only about 4.69% of the way to your previous record! Sorry, no time for responses yet; unexpected stuff happened this weekend and I was unexpectedly busy. I'll be more talkative next weekend! Maybe even during the week if I have time.
  2. I have been summoned! Rainbow pony all the way! 17!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  3. FOUR DIGIT NUMBERS?! I've finally made my way back! That last trap you laid for me was absolutely brutal! I'm guessing it was one of Cinnamon's, considering all the horror it contained. Do you know how hard it is to get back when you're sent to an alternate dimension within an alternate dimension? As you can tell, it was an incredibly effective trap. Still, you've got some work ahead of you if you want to devise a trap devastating enough to take me down long enough for the legendary duoquadraguple dethrone! (Fun fact: When I googled 'duoquadraguple' to see if I remembered the word correctly, one of the search results I found was the post history of my account on this forum, referring to a post I made in this topic. I must be famous now! ) So, I haven't been here in a while, so you may need to help me get up to speed. I notice Totally Not Not Lyra has become staff now, so here's my probably-very-late congratulations for that! Have there been any other noteworthy things that have happened in the past month while I was off exploring various planes of existence? Actual update on how I've been in this strange dimension called 'real life': I've recently finished my latest university semester, so you can expect to see more of me now for about the next month of two! After that, it depends on how busy my next uni semester becomes. My last one was especially busy, so I think it's unlikely I'll completely disappear again for a few months, but who knows? You can at least be certain that if I do disappear again, that I'll be back near the end of the year! I don't have enough time today to go through those 1237 posts, so I'll have to end this here for now. Congratulations on setting a new record for the largest number! I can assure you that you won't be setting any more records anytime soon!
  4. Again, time is sparse so I'm making my weekly rounds to briefly to bring you back to 0! I may perhaps be around a bit more often next week, though. However, I will respond to the one thing that caught my eye as I loaded this thread: That binary is ASCII code for 'a tree'. However, the last binary byte actually denotes line feed (pretty much the same thing as pressing Enter on a keyboard), so perhaps the quote would be more accurate like this: 'a tree ' There will surely be points for this! But they will be awarded when I have more time to go through things thoroughly.
  5. Just popping in to give you guys your weekly reset and reminder that I exist, I'm just really busy. What did you all do to this site while I was away? Is this a tactic to distract me? Also, I am highly skeptical of your claims that you have reached numbers as high as 4040404040404040404040 and the like.
  6. Turns out I was much busier this weekend than I anticipated. Well, not that much busier than usual, but my usual 'busy-ness' is still really high at the moment; that's why I disappeared for a few months, after all. Anyway, because of that, I haven't actually had the time to go back and reply to old posts like I promised. Sorry... But I at least have time to come on here and quickly stop your count. Not sorry!
  7. _o: I'll be good... Oh no, you don't understand. Cinnamon is absolutely terrifying and has most definitely earned the position of main villain! You and your chaos. I wonder how well you'd get along with Discord? I'm fine with chaos myself, just as long as you're not violating any mathematical principles. I tried to look into 41 and you're right, their actions are a bit suspicious. But that's all I could find out; I couldn't exactly investigate too much without arousing suspicion from them. Hope this doesn't get too serious. By the way, I don't think I ever asked what number base you're a part of? Nope! Not 'soon'! This is a reset! I think those two images represent Cinnamon perfectly. The second one is what she seems to be at first glance, and the first one reveals what is really beneath the surface! YES! SKY HIGH POKEMON/PONY! THIS IS EPIC! 42 HEARTILY APPROVES! +5 POINTS! Oh, no need for that face (also +1 point for epic Celestia). The only reason I didn't reply before was because your count was too low and not worth destroying at the time. I thought you knew by now that I brohoof without replying to toy with you! I do like you! I'm sure this isn't the first time I've brohoofed without replying. And besides, I've responded to that post now! No! Don't be like that! I will always be here to appreciate your art! I'm not normally a fan of ponies with guns, but this image somehow makes it work! So epic! So have +2 points for it! Now normally, I would go add 8 points for Trottermare to the running total. But that would mean searching for my last post where I awarded points, and that was ages ago... I swear to go look for it during the weekend when I have more time and add the points to it, and then finally resume replying to what are probably 5-month-old posts now! So, it turns out you all made a lot of posts while I was preparing my previous post, and now I have even more things to reply to. Thanks for the extra work, everyone! Oh, and there's one post which I have no idea why I missed the first time. So, here's the second lot of replies: Yes! Awesome use of factorials! You shall get +3 points for that! I shall! You can count on me! But please be sure to get back as soon as you can, I think I'm going to need the help! Uhh, can we turn normal mode back on again now? At least until Dovashy gets back? Hey, I explained my reasoning for the first brohoof without a reply! And the second brohoof without a reply was actually because I was in the middle of making my reply at that time! Yeah, Trottermare has been warning me about this attack for ages. But don't forget, I've been making some preparations myself, bringing Dovashy back here to help defend my throne! Let the battle begin!
  8. Aww, you 93% missed me? I'm so honoured! I'm only about 13% crazy so far, so I still have a long way to go! Of course Dovashy was gonna come ruin your day. He has a knack for appearing when he's most needed! Now, yes, that comment is a bit problematic... But good allies are just so hard to come by these days, so I'd rather not try to go into it. After all, it would only benefit you, not us; you're just trying to cause some dissension in the ranks, aren't you?! Dovashy has proven his loyalty to me countless times, so I'm just going to interpret his questionable derision of maths as humorous sarcasm. Dovashy isn't getting locked up anywhere. I'm not sure if you realized this yet, but you just turned on hard mode now that both of us are here! Yeah, that's right! My henchponies are free to act independently and think whatever they want! Just as long as what they do or say is whatever I wanted them to do or say. Oh Celestia, those base 11 guys... I thought I'd pop in just once to see what they're like. Nothing could possibly describe what I saw! They're unquantifiable! :-o You know, the base 14 crew are really cool. A bit unorthodox, but they know how to get things done. You should check out the base 42 group! It the best because, well, I'm the creator and leader of that one. Yes, exactly! Uhh, I mean, I need advisors who aren't afraid to speak their mind and tell me when I'm wrong... I have no need for validation...
  9. BOO! Well, it wasn't really a delayed train that stopped me coming on. I don't really have much of an excuse. My personal life just got extremely busy over the last few months, and I've been feeling rather worn out and lethargic lately. And it doesn't seem like things will slow down for me for at least a few months longer. I was originally thinking I'd hold off until then when I'm more free, but eventually decided against it. After all, I disappeared without a word, so I should at least come back now and then to assure you I'm still around. It doesn't take that much time out of my busy schedule to come on and ruin all your hard work! But hey, at least you know I'm not dead! That means it's time to reset your... Oh, you're already at zero? Good job, Dovashy! Thanks for covering me in my absence! I swear, I'll catch up on all those posts someday!
  10. OVER 300?! THAT'S... actually somewhat expected since I was gone for so long. But I've never been beaten so badly in a long time! So, uh, I suppose I can admit you've all done a good job. I've been plagued by lots of work hours and bad internet connectivity lately. And I remain dedicated to my promise to always include responses in my posts now, so one line posts are a thing of the past! So, I may have been lingering around without posting for a bit trying to get things to work in my limited spare time. All of these things worked together nicely, didn't they? And Trottermare, all those agents of destruction or whatever you've been recruiting against me lately certainly didn't help. As I said, poor internet and spare time at the moment so I can't afford to respond to much. Let's get into it! How did you know this would be appropriate several months later?! I did indeed linger a few days ago. That is such a scary coincidence! Did you get some sort of ability to look into the future? No, it couldn't be. We're talking about ninja Pinkie Pie here after all, it must be some variant of the Pinkie sense or something. They couldn't possibly see into the future! Ponies + Ninja's = 2 points for this picture! What is this? This is so contradictory! It's Fluttershy, the element of kindness, in a peaceful meadow, wearing a shirt with the word 'peace' on it... and then there's a big gun in front of her. Is it just me, or is that really unfitting? I am both very confused and very terrified of this. Still a really good picture, though. Have another +2 points for it!

  11. I've fallen into a terrible habit of promising responses then getting too busy, haven't I? Just last week I promised I would give responses tomorrow. Then Christmas happened and things got busy again. Replying to those now extremely old posts had been postponed again! WELL NO MORE! To break out of this cycle, I now vow to always include at least one response in all of my count resets from now on! At least until I finally catch up. Now, this will probably mean I'll reply to fewer posts than I used to do in my response posts. But since my last response post was over two month ago, I think I need a new system. It does seem like I'm going to be rather busy for the foreseeable future unfortunately, so making large response posts may be difficult, which is why I vowed to always make short response posts now! Never again will you see only a pony video with no responses attached! So, here are three brand new responses to get things going again! Gah! That's creepy! Thanks for the lack of sleep! -1 points for you! And then I'll give you +2 points since I feel taking away a point is mean and I like Flutterbat. Just make her more awesome and less creepy next time! I hear adding armor usually does the trick. Although is history is anything to go by, it'll be another 3 months before I respond to any such picture you find in response to this... What kind of average? There are many kinds! The median of the digits is 3, their mode is 2 and 4, their arithmetic mean is 3, their geometric mean is 2.8284 (or exactly 2*sqrt(2) ), their harmonic mean is 2.6667 (or exactly 8/3), their quadratic mean is 3.1623 (or exactly sqrt(10) ) and their cubic mean is 3.3019 (or exactly 36^(1/3) ). Clearly, you were talking about the median, right? THAT IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PICTURE IN THE HISTORY OF PICTURES! I am awarding you +10 points for that! And that's it for responses in this post. Now I'm only 3 months and 21 days behind! Points: Totally Not (Is?)

  12. Responses will be tomorrow hopefully. But I can still stop you anytime!
  13. I'm back! Feel free to start going all out again! I welcome the challenge! I should actually be able to get started again on replying to everyone again soon!
  14. I SHIP IT. 42 is back to reset your count! Then he'll probably disappear for a week again. But after that, good luck getting another dethrone, because 42 will finally be FREE from uni. For a little while, at least.
