    Default Clock differences

    Anyone else noticed the "big" difference in posted time vs actual local time? Seems there is a 13-14 minute difference, such as a posted time of 9:44 pm and an actual local time of 9:30 pm. It is a minor nuisance when looking at the posts in the last 30 minutes, for example.

    It's not a big problem, just more of a curiousity as to why the site clock is that far off. ????

    I asked about it before, and didn't get an answer. It seems to be accelerating, too. Time must be flyin' by in AZ. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    That happened a long time ago, and Muhammad got it corrected. I think it was the server TBN uses that got the time off. The last time I looked we were only 10 minutes off, but guess it's gotten to be more than that now.

    Yep, 15 minutes on this post.

    I have a little freeware program that I've loaded on my computer called "Atomic Clock", available from World Time Server. I don't know if it would work for your setup, but it checks my computer's clock once a day and corrects any drift.
