RE: Time check

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The one that I particularly like is AtomTime 98 - an inexpensive shareware software that can also be loaded in your taskbar and set to automatically check and verify your system time against the national time server in Boulder, Colorado (USA) and retrieves the exact time - updating your system clock. You set the intervals, so if you have a DSL connection, you can synchronize times every 3 hours if you are really fanatic about it. This makes most computers more accurate time keepers than Rolex watches (which I never believed were any more accurate than my Citizen watches).
Some of the features include:
  • Dial-up Networking support
  • Scheduling support (up to every three hours)
  • Multiple clock servers (in case one or more are not responding)
  • Time display options (local, GMT or actual server time)
  • Ticking Clock display
  • HTML Documentation
  • Full Installation Package
  • Registry Settings (32-bit)
  • Proxy authorization improvements

Internet time setting is not as accurate as modem synchronization. If you want astronomical accuracy you need to avoid internet settings which can be off by as much as 5 seconds. A good program is AccuSet. You can find them at

In the early 70's, when we first got digital watches, seems like every day someone in the office would call out to Colorado to check the time.  We wanted to be as accurate as possible, I guess in case we had to launch something into orbit.
By now, there must be a place on the internet to check time.  Anyone know where?
