in negilahn, looking out the portal viewer, i noticed something last night. there slightly beneath a fern frond, i found a pair of what appears to be blinking eyes. they keep a regular "blink" rate... two of them, quite small so that it is very easy to miss, but i noticed that i could even make them out if i had the lights turned off (both window switch and main power switch).

they appear as small brown eyes... blinking... ever blinking... anyone else notice them?

i'll try to find and post a ki pic i took...

(IC) The "DRC" has been told about this and have not commented or acknowledged this anomoly that many other explorers have reported seeing.

(OOC) It is almost impossible to get a picture of this in which you can actually see anything. It appears to be a video glitch.

Yep! Been there since day one of Negilahn being open. Flashing is not random like the programmed animals. It appears to be in sinc with the computer clock ( real, not D'ni ). I would tend to concur and say it is a video glitch.

i actually have a fairly good kipic of it showing the two "eyes" open... and yes, it is a regular, systematic blinking...

but why two of them? and why hidden just below that fern frond? wink3.gif you can see them from slightly different angles as you move to the left or right of that window.

oh, i forgot to mention that it is viewable from the portal on the middle level...

:::: imagination runs amok ::::

d'rbeh, perhaps you have discovered the elusive "Chronometer Monster". It is rarely seen but I know it exists because it affects us all.

I mean, have you ever noticed that when you think you have left sufficient time to do something, you invariably run out and then and say " where did the day go"? It's the CM, it has snuck out of the fern fronds and eaten away at the precious minutes of your life.

Well maybe, just maybe, you have caught a once in a lifetime glimps...... whistling.gif

I'll go take my meds now...... lmao.gif

The fact that IC characters seem to be unable to see them (something like the response of "Lag?" when someone complains about it to an IC character) makes me think that the blinkers are a technical/game issue. If it's OOC, then it doesn't exist. smile.gif

Blinky has been there for a very long time. And I always thought the blink and the sound weren't random at all. connectedness abounds

You found Blinky! (as Kurt said)... I don't know what it means but I sure hope the eyes will eventually show us something... whistling.gif

Yes I saw it too since day one. But since Sharper and the others made no mention of its significance I figured it was not all that important. I'm stilll waiting to see what these characters have to say.
