Can't wait!  (Although it's been said that Patience is a conquering virtue!!)

Anxiously awaiting launch dates as I have a few days holiday booked (with little or no internet access) and would hate for there to be a clash! (20th/21st June)

I'm pretty sure that, with you all being very bright sparks, you know what's going on perfectly well. But just for clarification...

Centuries ago, Geoffrey Chaucer created words, The Canterbury Tales. The days are numbered until we launch our tribute contest on 20-06-2022, and it will be time to get started at 10 AM GMT.

The date was chosen because Chaucer became a member of the royal court of Edward III as a valet de chambre (esquire) on 20 June 1367.

A small point on the time, predominantly for the UK puzzlers. Note that 10am GMT is 11am BST. Smile
