This is a note about all Chrononautic tasks:

We need more of them. The Exploratorium, now Exxon, has begun to die as the time warps are numbered and we stop putting new material in. Fewer Time tasks are made, so the creation of tasks involving time has begun to die out.

I ask all players who read this note to submit one task dealing with time to attempt to revive the Group. It's such a good idea. We need more of it.

I agree. Let us not let CE die. (Although who knows what Everyday Life shall bring?)

Indeed. I wrote in a few minor tasks, but it doesn't look like they made the grade...

I'm trying to upload a proof, but the embed code from google video won't work. What should I do?

It gets filtered to prevent haxors. For GoogleVideo enter: "[googlevideo:url_to_video]"

e.g. [googlevideo:]

This task has been dominated by physical abuse. I find that mind games are much more fun.

We decided to destroy a clock by destroying its functionality. This provoked a series of experiments including: * completely disassembling multiple clocks * detaching wires and soldering them back in different locations (FAIL) * putting the battery...

In essence, GYØ hates clocks. Well, that's what we want you to think, anyway. This is "Project: Killing Time". For once, you have GYØ Ben, your trusty right-hand-man, writing up the praxis, going on the flip-side. I trust you enjoy ou...

The clock I chose for this task was my old and trusty New Zealand Silver Fern travel clock. It has served me well and faithfully in a number of countries and situations over the years, but the time had come for a parting of ways... Still - Given tha...

So I had a little difficulty finding a suitable clock to destroy because we really dont have many that aren't part of other objects, like cell phones or ovens for example. In the end, I stumbled upon a quite puerile watch with a fish for a face plate...

Boom. Boom. Boom. Boom. The foul rhythm of something beats deep beneath the earth. Those with sensitive minds and sensitive feet can feel the pounding of the drum, the beat of something stirring. Those of us who have battled fabled creatures, who ...
