Hey, SM, did you read the entire OTT? Really?
How the hell does Randall do it?
It's a movie with a frame-rate of 1 frame per 60 minutes! How can it possibly be so interesting?
What can the world possibly do if MARKETING discovers the secret?
And while I'm getting so rhetorical, when will I sleep?
Will I sleep?
Can I sleep?
What is sleep?

when I realised 1190 was changing (about 2 days late!) I left a machine running screen capsevery few minutes, then watched it at speed, stopping and going back as stuff significantly changed.
Eventually the 3TB disk filled and I had to just check as and when (every couple of waking hours.)
I missed some, then found the explained site and caught up.
The last few days, i went back to the screen caps, but every 15 minutes.
Randall is Lord. No person may speculate about the true nature of the Lord Randall.
CR, your link which says 1190 (Time) is pointing to 1110 (Click and Drag), which may have been deliberate (and possibly with evil "mess with my mind" intent but then again you may just have made exactly the same mistake that I made, long ago when I still knew what the word "sleep" meant) because when SM mentioned 1190 I thought he meant 1110 (which (1110, that is) I had thoroughly explored at the cost of vast amounts of time) but then I realised that he meant 1190 that I thought was just one frame the meaning of which I didn't really understand at the time (Ha! Time geddit? ) so I went and looked at 1190 and was amazed and immediately (possibly sooner) joined the Blitzers (which describes those who arrived late at 1190 and who resolve to read every 1190 forum post in order until catching up to the end of the thread) which could be a while because the obsessive nature of the posters on 1190 is such that so many are posting new posts to the end of the thread that those who start late are almost exactly exemplifying Xeno's Paradox which ironically has been mentioned many times within the subthread and no matter how fast one can read there will be more and more posts added to the end of the thread meaning that it could take forever to catch up but I've been able to read at a rate of roughly 20 old posts to one new added post so it's possible that I could catch up as long as I don't stop too long to check all the references that are made in each post (every one very interesting and spawning more links which need to be checked/read/watched before returning to the One True Thread about the One True Comic) (Gasp!) but you may possibly have misunderstood something and not be aware of 1190 (Time) and the huge following it has (Wait For It) and the obsessive nature (herinaforementioned) of its posters so if that's true then I feel I should in some way help you to convert to (One of Us! One of Us!) the readers of the One True Thread because like so many members of so many sects I feel I can't rest until all others convert to the truth of the One True Comic (Can I have a Halleluiah! Randall is Lord!) and although you may need to ignore work, family, life, and Oxford commas you will never know the truly unbelievable capabilities of the human mind until you have blitzed your way through the (at the moment, 1,397 pages (about 40 posts per page)) of the One True Thread.
Gasp. Wall of Text, Wall of Text.
TLDR: Been there, done that done that done that still doing that, but ever so ta, anyway.
