07/18/05 Started and finished writing the Time Attack FAQ - v0.1

02: What is Time Attack
After clearing a level you can time attack it by pressing
the Start button. You have to get a given number of apes
as fast as possible. You get rewarded with a bronze, silver
or gold award. I will only list the gold times, because they
are all that count.
Time Attack is best attempted after finishing the game, because
you will need the transformations for it.
