My guesstimate based on the map is...

[spoiler]in the vicinity of 9 pm cavern time (MDT).[/spoiler]

I'll be at work. Looks like I'm waiting until the second opening tomorrow afternoon, Yahvo willing and the creek don't rise. Um, rise further...

I suppose it's on the night side of the cycle now. Do you think it'll get any lighter later on?

if I'm looking at the map correctly, the portal should show up 4 hours after Neg.

You did?? I've been in there wandering around for over an hour [even cheated and cranked up the gamma.. LOL] and I found zilch!

Had to go back to the wardrobe and change clothes.. ugh! :?

EDIT: nevermind... I no sooner said that.. and went back in.. found it! lol

Any one else getting that sinking, Freddy Kruger, I should probably check my pressure readings feeling?

The pod is underwater:
  1. It's leaking.
  2. It's pod number (six) is listed in the middle of the ocean on the map.
  3. It's Linking Book color is blue.
But doesn't anyone else wonder where all that water is draining to? :?

Tetsonot portal time estimation:
[spoiler]On the map, each time zone is marked by a red line, meaning each red line is one "pahr-tah-vo" apart from another (about 1 hr. 13 min.). Dereno is about one time zone away from Negilahn, and Payiferen is about half of one away form Dereno. Thus, we make the conjectures that the Dereno portal appears about 1 hr. 13 min. after Negilahn's, and Payiferen's appear about 37 min. (36.5 min. rounded up) after Dereno's.

Using the map and Tetsonot's pod number, we see that Tetsonot is about 2 and a half time zones away from Payiferen. Which means it will appear about 3 hours after Payiferen's (182.5 min.), or about 3 hr. 40 min. after Dereno's (219 min.), or about 4 hr. 50 min. after Negilahn's (292 min.).

So the first portal should appear around 21:00 KI time tonight (I got 21:04).

But don't come to me if my calculations are wrong. Figure it out yourself why don't you. :wink:

JKC, your mistake is that you're figuring every time zone to be an hour of surface time. It's actually a D'ni hour, a "pahr-tah-vo" which is about 1 hour and 13 minutes of surface time.[/spoiler]

All that makes sense... I have another question though.

I.. and others... were assuming that Tetsonot must be the name of the island where the pod is... as with Negilahn and Dereno and Payiferen. But...
[spoiler]The pod is Pod 6... which is off the southeast coast of the island named Cheecho.[/spoiler]

What does Tetsonot mean, then? "Leaky"? "Creeptastic"?

Dunno about what it means.. but I'm huddled on the floor of the second level hoping that this intermittent power and all this water doesn't end up electrocuting me! LOL

The sounds all cranked up are downright scary! :twisted:

"Cap'n she canna take n'more!"

Sheesh... I gotta hand it to the D'ni, though, even under so much strain, it seems to be holding together well enough.

Creepy. Yeah, it takes a bit of doing to get the power on, especially if the light in your computer room is against you.

No luck with seeing out the windows... shame, I really want to see the ocean. I hope you can see more during the daylight... if it's not already daylight by now.

I think you're right, dinkygirl. The pod number being what it is, if you check it out on the map, you'll see [spoiler]it has no land under it.[/spoiler]

EDIT: which hordes of people have already pointed out. *looks like an idiot*

Which means several people with whom I argued were right, and I was, as usual, completely up a gum tree. :) That's how it goes. Sorry, people.

FURTHER EDIT: I'm looking at my pod books, now four in number, and I'm thinking about the mediaeval elements. Anyone know if the D'ni had an equivalent?

Heh. I don't think I argued with you.. But I wanted pod 6 as soon as I saw the map. Thanks Cyan! (My second choice would have been Pod #1)

Of course, have y'all seen the snake?

:roll:

[spoiler]I don't believe there is one, but some one once said that that was all that spooky thing needed![/spoiler]

Man.. I'm trying to get more light in there, and it just won't work.. Fire marbles won't go through the linking books with me, the fireflies refuse to go through to somewhere so wet, I dropped my flashlight and it shorted out instantly. I don't want to burn anything. I'm not sure how much oxygen is in there.

And I think there's a pump running to get the water back out of the pod.



[spoiler]Yah. I'm figuring that to be able to see out the windows, it has to be daylight, and you have to have the power on.

I'm hoping that since it's nighttime on the surface, that when sunrise happens, in 3-4 hours, it will be brighter. I just hope we aren't deep enoght that surface light won't reach us.[/spoiler]
