The first post is upon me.........
arghhhhh!!!

The topic for discussion is The Clacks System: How Does it Work?

Recommended reading in non-cannonical sources include the posts on guild_of_damn's web site, under the entry titled "Clackwork Orange"
Suggested cannonical reading includes all the books from about "Feet of Clay" onwards. I don't remember if FOC includes clacks references, but it a bloody good read anyway. ; )

have fun!

hmmm, it might have been introduced in Jingo... but I'm not sure.
I recommend FOC anyway... it gives a little background. WAIT!!! It was the one when Fred and Nobby were on Traffic Patrol, which WAS Jingo!
I bow to your superior knowledge. Oh well, FOC is a good book anyway...

Lord Vetinari suggested that Colon and Nobbs ought to be given the traffic job at the very end of Jingo. The first mention of the clacks is in The Fifth Elephant, I think (since C. and N. are not seen actually doing the job until then).

ah, yes, that would be it. I am sorely in need of my own copies of the Discworld books so that when I'm in college, I'm not always stealing everyone else's......
Trying ti prove a point without having the book is difficult. Thank you.
