Attention all drod.net passengers, this is a service announcement. As you can see from our bar, we are now approximately 20+6i weeks away from our arrival at JtRH Bliss International Airport. We know you have a choice in airlines and it looks like you made the wrong one.

But 57.666666667% is just too silly. :blink

There is something weird about having that 7 at the end of 57.666666667% just to round it off when you had a plain ol' 57.333333333% when you could of had a 4 at the end.

Maybe I'm just being too picky.

My head hurts.

Well, the next number in the 57.33333.. progression is a 3 and therefore rounded down. The next number in the 57.666... progression is a 6, and therefore rounded up. Makes perfect sense to me.

Yay! More progress! I'm wondering if they could give us a screenshot of the latest accomplishments(or not even the latest. Just a few new things would work). That would be so cool it would probably hold us over for about 2 to 3 months on the sheer speculative value. Multiple screenshots would both hold us over and make us happy, but I know there's no chance of that.

Even another 'Ketchup and Puppies' would do.

Actually, those aren't rounded at all - they're exact percentages, and just so happened to be similiar to 57 1/3 and 57 2/3.

Believe it or not, but pretty soon that 58% will turn into 68%, then all of a sudden.. 98%! Time sure does fly fast.

Or good bar-making, depending on your perspective. I mean, nothing makes for a good release like a one-month delay with new screenshots and a new list of features, yeah?

Yeah, I think all game companies should release their games a month past their advertised date. But who needs all those features? I mean, seriously, we can all do with about half those features, can't we?

But if you were given all these new features, would you not use them?

I do remember from somewhere that a developer said that it is fun to make the new elements, just not that fun to test them and debug them.

There isn't much point in posting every time the bar is updated (or even some of the times the bar is updated) - we can all see it there, and everyone is happy to see it grow slowly. No need to repeat the information.

But if we keep a record of whenever the bar moves, we can make a graph of the developers' productivity and be able to tell when they've been slacking. Caravel could even use such a chart to determine employee wages.

Hear that, developers? More incentive to keep churning it out!

We're all going to be very sad, though, when the developers realize they started it at 50 instead of 0... :P

We're going to be even more upset when we realize that the bar is actually counting down to the point in which the dev team decides it's time to stop watching full house reruns, get off the couch, and start working on Journy to Rooted Hold.

Except for the fact that this is the "Watch the Bar" topic, which is there to divert our mindless drooling for the update away from other topics. I mean, imagine how much it would diminish the quality of the "One Word Story" thread if "59.5!!!!" showed up

The problem with that is that without this topic, we'd all be so mindlessly drooling that someone else would have posted a "Watch the Bar" topic eventually.

But why not have "59.5" in the "One Word Story"? It may be random, but if it fit somehow, it could work.

I want them to just be toying with us, just so I can see you squirm.

EDIT: Your prediction is suspect for three reasons: One, I don't really use bold. Two, I don't write that incoherently unless JtRH Beta is involved. Three, you didn't capitalize Nostradamus, and therefore may be off by 1/12th in your prediction.
