    Well I just resynced all my computer clocks
    some were out as much as 4 minutes. Not good.
    Not sure when I did it last.
    Quite a while back.
    Seems to have fixed a few of the problems.
    I zapped the pram man...

    To solve this problem of the clocks being off, you could set all the computer so sync the time automatically. Open System Preferences, click Date & Time, then check the box that says "Set date & time automatically". Then choose the correct server.

    Yes I usually do this but I must have reinstalled and forgotten.
    Seems a pram zap is called for to if your machine is more than
    3 to 5 years old. The battery life you know. I've got an old G3 700hz ? Imac running panther.
    I more though meant on my 2 PCs, they don't seem to care about syncronization for some reason. My 780hz Windows 2000 was out 29 seconds
    and my 800hz Windows XP out 5 seconds. No wonder they, these computers didn't like the internet.

    Mine are synced automatically via the internet. That is now my main source of a clock as i am nearly always on my computer.

    All of my macs have always had the right time syncing to time.apple.com. ANY PC has terrible sync. My mom's gateway is always out of sync by about five minutes.
