    Re: Problem with Time-Server from NIST

    First I also thought at leap seconds. Later, when I realised that the difference did not remain constant, it was clear that either the synchronisation or the Web-page would not be accurate. First I thought that the Web-page would be the problem. After some further reflections, I question this now.

    Previously I verified my wrist-watch by synchronising the computer clock. For this I took the time difference to the nearest second after repeating the synchronisation several times and by selecting then the "most likely" value. Some time ago I started to rely on the NIST-Web-page because it mentions also the possible error based on to the round trip. Do you have an idea which of the two options is the preferred one? Or, is there yet an other way using only the Internet?
