You can set your clock back a minute every minute from cron using the
"date" command.  Try:

     date -s "now - 1 minute"

If that's not good enough, you can write a loop that resets your clock
back a second every second, again using the "date" command.

    while true
           date -s "now - 1 second"
           sleep 1

That should make time appear to stand still at the HH:MM:SS level.

Another possible method is to pause time itself.  However your
computer won't work any more, and will remain frozen without any
