About the Story

If you keep it on your computer for three thousand years, you'll be rewarded by a message saying, "Welcome to Alpha Centauri. Now go home."

Baf's Guide

NOTE: This joke is based on a reference to the book "Only You Can Save Mankind" by Terry Pratchett. My only complaint is that the countdown timer assumes there are 61 seconds per minute, 61 minutes per hour, 25 hours per day, and 366 days per year.

-- Mark Musante

Gag game, pretty much summed up by the title. Subtitled "An Interactive Waste of Time."
