Frequently Answered Questions

Q: How do I access past prompts?

A: The '365 Pictures' prompt machine is programmed to show one picture/prompt per day throughout the year. Because each prompt is a surprise emergence, you may access past prompts only when they loop around next year on their scheduled date (see credits page for schedule). See, this way you have a never-ending loop of prompts to live for in anticipation and surprise!

Q: Is the rotation of prompts fixed?

A: Yes, this perpetual prompter will cycle annually according to the monthly schedule listed the credits page.
