We try to keep this a public place as much as possible. Like the fellows on the picture, we hate password protected sites, and look forward to your participation, ideas and comments.

Although we may sometimes try to joke around a littlebit, everyting on TimeDesk has a function. We hope you don't take advantage of our hospitality. We believe in the frontier feeling of the internet so there is no reason to steal anyting form our site. Just tell us if you want to use something before you do however. We might even give you some more and/or better ideas. We also believe that a free internet for value added ideas and services is not a sustainable business model in the long run, so might from time to time ask for a symbolic contribution for the benefits you receive by using TimeDesk.

At some point in time we may even be interested to use your ideas and services also...We are always open to discussions and knowledge sharing.
