    Re: Problem with Time-Server from NIST
    From: Marcel Tschudin

    @ Lu,
    In my first message I mentioned that the time shown was supposed to be within 0.4s, but the difference to the synchronised time was 2s. This same difference (2s) resulted after several repeated synchronisations. Later the difference to the time shown (within 0.4s) was repeatedly about 1s and finally repeatedly about 0s.

    @ John,
    My domicile is still in Istanbul. It is for this reason that I preferred previously to synchronise the computer clock with time servers from Europe. I did this with a little program called AtomIT, where one can select from a large number of different time servers. Windows 7 provides only its own time server and several from NIST. However, when performing now these tests the computer clock has been synchronised using the server time.nist.gov. Previously I used only the synchronised computer clock as reference. In recent times I trusted the time shown on the Web-page http://nist.time.gov/timezone.cgi?UTC/s/0/java This may possibly have been a mistake.
