FAQ: Why is there a difference between the WebClock time and my PC time?

Our servers are set to atomic time in tune with the atomic clock located in Ft. Collins, Colorado. The server constantly pings the atomic clock daily, so that our service time is as precise as possible.

A user's PC may have time discrepancies over time, as the user's PC's clock is run off of a CMOS battery. The fact that the CMOS may be intermittently losing power, etc could lead to the user's clock to 'lose' time, or maybe the user has set the clock ahead.

The user can download a free utility from http://www.worldtimeserver.com/atomic-clock/ which will sync up the PC's clock with the atomic clock, thus putting the user in accordance with the time(s) that our server uses.
