No, I'm nearly 100% sure you can't, in fact I put that on the wish-list last
time we were asked for wishes for exactly this reason (and to be able to
make a ChucKoo clock, of course!)
I suppose that you could run some sort of batch script, or say a

Perhaps a script could call the .ck with the system time as a parameter?
That sounds reasonable enough, I'm no BASH/ batch wizzard but that should be
It's a interesting problem.
