Hmm,
Bell 1: Sail from sail boat
Bell 2: Sail in reference to QiYi Sail
Bell 3: ~Weilong, which sounds like whaling or whale if you nix the ong part
Ergo the bell is rung for things found in the book Moby Dick, obviously.
Alternatively it could just literally be general ocean-y things.

@Kit Clement
@ColorfulPockets
And the first one Kit said "snail" instead, which could ring the ocean-y bell
Maybe it’s just the sound “ail”

I have no friggin clue how US time zones work, but I'm assuming that's 12:00 UTC−7, or 19:00 UTC. About five and a half hours from now?

edit: I was there for the stream but my mind was half asleep at that point (as it is now), so maybe I shouldn't have been…

My Twitch username is a visual joke based on the same username I use for GitHub/Discord/etc. I chose my username here (xyzzy) to be as generic as possible, originally with some intention of being separate from all my other online activity, but at some point I gave up on trying to maintain a million distinct online identities so it's now a mishmash of whatever. (Also, since I live in a Commonwealth country, the canonical pronunciation is axe-wye-zed-zed-wye. ;))

Speaking of Twitch, I streamed a couple of 2-7 relays two weeks ago and a couple of people hopped in to spectate, but honestly it's boring to watch someone solve cubes for like an hour straight, and nobody sat through the whole thing (except for myself, duh). Cube-related streaming probably only makes sense if there's already some pre-existing community around the streamer, to fill in the void when they're solving cubes and not paying attention to chat. (You guys did already mention this in the show, I think.)

I listened to this for the first time today while taking the dogo for a walk. It was interesting and I’ll have to check out some old episodes. We got rained on so I didn’t get to finish KUKUKUKUKU but I wanted to post and say the podcast was well done and caught my attention

Kit says a symbol (i.e: colon, semicolon, apostrophe, period(dot), etc.)
That's my guess.

@ColorfulPockets I can't see the doc with the new rules. Is anybody else having that issue?

I thought my guess was different enough from yours, and maybe only one of us would get it based on the different wording.
