    The past four days have offered me the easiest Number 1 schedules.

    16 hours total, 16 hours, 13 hours and today's at 7 hours total. ! 7 hours !

    I am not complaining, but this has been so odd in comparison to the breakdown on Topix. Yes, in the other threads I have read the mathematical - time zone - coding - string theory - dark matter is expanding the universe with numbers explanation. :wink: (I really do appreciate the efforts to explain it in a way that is understandable, alas, it is still Greek to me.)

    As long as I start my first task at midnight, the timing of the other tasks is so doable, that it is 4:30 in the afternoon for me, and I have finished all four tasks today.

    I don't believe in luck at all, but I hope I haven't jinxed myself. Watch, tomorrow I'll be saddled with a twenty hour total.

    Would you do me a huge favor? Would you go back to The Greek Thread, and see the last post (with a picture of the calendar and some blue font explanation) to see if it makes sense?

    I'd love to hear from someone who is still victimized by all of our chaos over there. :)

    Annette,

    <<Think of each day's four tasks as a four-course-meal on a restaurant "menu"
    Appetizer = Task One. (Top left corner.)
    Soup = Task Two. (Top right corner.)
    Entree = Task Three. (Bottom left corner.)
    Dessert = Task Four. (Bottom right corner.)


    You may only have ONE of each course.
    The courses must be in order (Appetizer, soup, entree, dessert)

    Look at the time your next Parchment Puzzle unlocks (by clicking on the Parchment)
    Until your new Parchment Puzzle unlocks, you can only order off YESTERDAY's "menu"
    Once your new Parchment Puzzle unlocks, you can only order off of TODAY's "menu"


    You must finish all four courses to earn the full 1,000 emblems.
    Be sure to eat your dessert!

    Does that make sense? Too silly?

    Incidentally, has anyone else noticed that this thread has had almost 20,000 views, meaning there are thousands of people out there, some of whom probably fled on foot after the first few posts, but some of whom may have suffered through almost 600 posts of confusion and programmers' solutions, and stories about talking computers, and all-around chaos, until good old direwolf came up with -- in essence -- "So am I the only one who's noticed that the Parchment sets at the same time as the task pattern calendar does?" >>


    This is perfect. The metaphor is apt. Thank you for pointing me back to this thread.
    Huzzah, I understand.

    Next week is fairly light except for 11/19 which is another "Drop and give me 20!".
    And then, two weeks starting 11/22 which looks like this...

    20, 10, 20, 18, 16, 20, 14, 20, 16, 20, 16, 20.

    :shock:

    I also had a 7 hour day today (1,2,2,2), but 8 hour yesterday as (1,2,4,1).
    Of course you had yesterday as (6,2,4,1), as you now understand why from other posts.

    And now off topic, it is dark energy expanding the universe. Dark matter is holding the galaxy together. :)

    If you're a stay-up-until-midnight kind of person, you could set your first task then, but you would need to set your second one by about 7:45 (I'd go for 7:30 just to be on the safe side, for a little time cushion) ... You'd finish by midnight, though you would need to stay up again to clear that fourth task when it completed.

    Notice I said "YOU" could do all that, and not "ME". :)

    I think the trick is to use our hard found knowledge to eat a light Appetizer, from the previous day when today's Appetizer, is heavy. In fact some people might want the Appetizer, and soup from the previous day!

    And we need to avoid eating the heavy Appetizer, from yesterday when the light Appetizer, is available for today.

    [Edit. Appetizer comes first.]

    And I think the trick is to use our brains to figure out how to just skip straight to dessert. :)

    Its not accurate. Today I got totally different schedules in both my towns, neither of which tally for whats listed for todays task lengths. This is the 3rd or 4th time its happened and I always set them simultaneously. :(
