As they moved in closer I knew only one thing could be done. I pointed my pistol and let my last shot ring out. I had won. All of the zombies moving in closer could do me no harm anymore. I had made sure I wouldn't rise again. The last thing I felt was the bullet's warmth filling me up.
You're right on both counts. I didn't listen far enough when I was checking. He first only mentions being out that night, then says after that he'd been out the previous day.
And I totally forgot Kelly gave us a time frame. What does throw me off horribly is Kc saying back when we were listening to chapter 18 the story was in August, but that obviously can't be the case. i think Kc giving the chapter 24 date is very helpful. At least there's a solid end date to count backwards from. we have far more accurate timings in the last few chapters vs 16-19 (or so).
Ok, I know I've been gone for quite a while, and I know I've said I would get it up on here before, BUT to those who are interested, I have a crazy detailed timeline for the story already written up. Problem is, it's in a notebook (kind of fitting now that I think about it) and I took a break between recording all of the details on paper and transferring them to a clean, attractive, electronic format. Between two new jobs, school, personal stuff, and the off-season, WA kind of got pushed onto the back burner for a bit.
Now that things have calmed back down and the semester ends this week, I'm determined to finish this project I started months ago. If anyone has any suggestions on a good program to use for making a timeline or has anything they would like to see included, I would love to hear it.
Right now, the timeline is organized by day and from there breaks down into approximate time that events in the story happened. Looking at the story this way gives a pretty good feel for what a day in the tower is like and how action packed some days could be for them. My notes also include where in the timeline characters are first introduced, where characters leave us, and a couple other little things like that. It also notes where individual episodes start and end, so that may help with tracking down events in the story when you want to re-listen to something.

Timelines are fun.
timeline in the wiki? or do we need to do it list format like th3_t3ch did originally?
I have been thinking about this. I think we can have several versions.
1) Have things documented in a very organized for as a list. We have to start somewhere.
2) Almost the same as (1), but constructed laterally. |------>
3) Take the events out of the list and write them on a "monthly planner". The ones that have a blank box for each day and fits on a single piece of paper.
4) More rigorous, but what I have already been thinking about in my mind is a hybrid. A Project Manager variant. Important events are given their own "line" and major milestones are shown. It kinda would look like this where " . " is actually a spacebar keystroke. I do not know if this interface compresses spaces etc.
[-----Event 1 -----|| milestone 1 || -------- || milestone 2 || ---------------]
...........................[---------------- Event 2 ---------]...............................
......................................[---Event 3 --].................................................
........................................[ -- Event 4 ---- || milestone 3 || ------------]..
We can see how things overlap. Like when Edward Scissor Kitty prepares to go all Jason like on the upcoming Friday the 13th. Meanwhile Lady is singing should I stay or should I go now....
Ok, it may not be perfect for fitting in with the Wiki, but I found some software online that I think could work well with the information I've collected for it. Check it out and let me know what you guys think. I'm entering Season 1 into it now to see how it looks so hopefully I can share that soon. Here's the link to the software along with a few examples at the bottom:
