Is the forum time off from all of you folks PC times? Every time I post or reply I notice the post/reply time is off by about seven or eight minutes.

confused

Amie, does any of Ian and the crews new projects have anything to do with time travel that you are aware of? Just curious.

You are correct Rick, the forum time appears to be about 7 minutes faster than actual.

Most hosted web services connect to an NTP source (Network Time Protocol) to keep everything synchronized to the Atomic Clock wherever that is, I forget. Smaller or private web companies may not bother so it isn't unusual for them to get a bit out of sync now and then. Not a big deal until you get into online transactions. Then it is much more important to have accurate time stamps.

I think the Atomic Clock is not placed at to top of the Axiom Subwoofer testing tower.

C'mon you guys. It's Canadian time!

Isn't "the" atomic clock in Greenwich, UK?

That doesn't make sense. Canada is owned by the UK, so maybe the standard seven second delay isn't long enough for them to catch up?

there are dozens of atomic clocks all around the world.
the main one for canada is in Ottawa, at the NRC.
even some universities have them.

if anyone wants to synchronize time, he must do it with the nearest atomic clock center, because of propagation delays.

If Canadian time is 7 minutes fast, that means you get to the bars 7 minutes faster for happy hour.
