The ONG (also GONG, BONG, DONG, or PONG) (but actually DING) is a timer established to measure time between updates of the One True Comic. The gong is set to alert followers of an immenent change in frames. Users who react quick enough may see the change happen before their eyes. Only a single user may be able to post the new frame first, however the chance for becoming a Ninja is great.
The delay on the gong is approx. 0.053 standard grains before the actual change in image. The gong provides the basis for the TimeFrames standard unit of measure.
