Nice to see they've got Indiana and Arizona colored differently for their time-zone quirks! (Have to wait until Spring to see if it works though!)

Hey, they even got GMT (UTC) correct for over here! Not that anyone would care much, but the whole of the U.K. is on GMT (EST + 5 hrs) in winter, BST (British Summer Time = GMT + 1 hr) March thru October.

Go here: http://www.boulder.nist.gov/timefreq/service/its.htm for a small program that will sync your 'puter clock with the atomic clock at the NIST lab...

My clock is never off more than a second, even if not updated for a few weeks...

BTW, if you have a GPS receiver, you have a dandy clock that is remarkably accurate to the "real time". I guess it has to be to work!

So far as I'm aware, the WWV stations on shortwave also still broadcast time data from Colorado, along with WWVH in Hawaii.

Over here a similar service comes from the MSF transmitter at Rugby.

You'd need suitable hardware to interface to a PC though.

P.S. Oh yes, I see WWV listed there. Should've checked Virgil's link BEFORE posting!
