    Default Just wondering why the Basenotes clock is 6 minutes fast

    The Basenotes clock used to be about 3 minutes fast, but I just noticed it's now about 6 minutes fast.

    Grant, any reason for this, and can it be corrected?

    l noticed this too, & it is somewhat irritating.

    It is somewhat irritating. I like to set my clocks all the same.

    For some reason this happens every year when the U.S. enters Daylight Savings Time, which happens about 4 weeks before the U.K. does the same.

    Watch, when the U.K. jumps ahead an hour, we'll go back to the usual 3-minute deviation.

    It's very bad practice for a server to have incorrect time.

    It can breaks lots of important things (like authentication) and also system logs become problematic.

    An NTP (Network Time Protocol) client is built into every modern operating system, and setting it up properly is trivial, so there is no reason for it to be more than a few dozen milliseconds off perfect.

    I’ve often wondered this myself. *scratches head* :/
