    Brooke-
     That was my understanding, that the correction string (what is it, broadcast 
    once every 14 minutes or something?) in the GPS system kept the time shown 
    coordinated with UTC. But the article referenced claims a 13 second 
    difference...which shouldn't matter if the system is correcting for it.
     I've got to speak to Seiko or Casio about getting a special digital watch 
    made up just for me. The display changes once every season, the alarm goes 
    off four times a year to mark the solstices and equinoxes.
    
     "What time is it Mister?" "Late spring, early 21st century."
    
    Hey, sometimes that's all I need or want to know.
