grandfather clock



"The hours I spend with you I look upon as sort of a perfumed garden, a dim twilight, and a fountain signing to it...you and you alone make me feel that I am alive...Other men, it is said, have seen angels, but I have seen thee and thou art enough."

RE: grandfather clock

can you make it smaller?
I can put it on the front if I can shrink it to no taller than 40
30 is what I now use for a height limit

the thread is very much a peek into what kind of [fun] forum Tb2k is.

it starts out with this post}


Time is running out - literally, says scientist

By Tom Chivers and Roger Highfield, Science Editor

Scientists have come up with the radical suggestion that the universe's end may come not with a bang but a standstill - that time could be literally running out and could, one day, stop altogether.

The idea that time itself could cease to be in billions of years - and everything will grind to a halt - has been set out by Professor José Senovilla, Marc Mars and Raül Vera of the University of the Basque Country, Bilbao, and Univerisity of Salamanca, Spain.

The motivation for this radical end to time itself is to provide an alternative explanation for "dark energy" - the mysterious antigravitational force that has been suggested to explain a cosmic phenomenon that has baffled scientists.

A decade ago, astronomers noticed that distant supernovae - exploding stars on the very fringes of the universe - seemed to be moving faster than those nearer to the centre, suggesting that they were accelerating as they shot through space.

Dark energy was suggested as a possible means of powering this acceleration of the expansion of the cosmos.

The problem is that no-one has any idea what dark energy is or where it comes from, and theoreticians around the world have been scrambling to find out what it is, or get rid of it.



some of the posts in the thread are very thought provoking others are poking fun :fingerpoke:

hers is sentimental:


Winding the Clock

When I was a little lad, my old grandfather said
That none should wind the clock but he, and so at time for bed
He'd fumble for the curious key kept high upon the shelf
And set aside that little task entirely for himself.

In time grandfather passed away and so that duty fell
Unto my father who performed the weekly custom well.
He held that clocks were not to be by careless persons wound
And he alone should turn the key or move the hands around.

I envied him that little task and wished that I might be
The one entrusted with the turning of the key.
But year by year the clock was his exclusive bit of care-
Until the day the angels came and smoothed his silver hair.

Today the task is mine to do, like those who've gone before,
I am the jealous guardian of that round and glassy door.
And until at my chamber door God's messenger shall knock
To me alone shall be reserved the right to wind the clock.

RE: grandfather clock

how is it looking on the index page?

a shame we can't use the pretty one!
if, when you are making it, they show the code for it's size
maybe you can alter it?
I've done that for the rss feeds.

I got a letter from the hosts of this site saying,
they will be updating our forum & adding a gallery and games.
