[time-nuts] Remove Pictic boards from envelopes

They just need the simple application of the little pink eraser (I was
going to say rubber :) at the end of a pencil and a bit of elbow
grease to come up looking shiny and new.

The nice thing about the little pink erasers at the ends of pencils is
that they are just the right softness and have just enough abrasive to
clean oxide off easily and safely. They are also just the right size
to get them into many tight places and what's more, they come with a
long stick attached that you can wield them with and, when they are
all worn out, you can sharpen the other end of the stick and,
hey-presto!, you have a working writing and drawing instrument.
Recycling at it's best.

The pencil is your friend.
