This problem must be unique to your setup there, as it has not been
reported to me by anyone else.  The clock here keeps almost perfect time
and I only reset it a few seconds every week using an update from the
Internet with a program called AtomicTime.  WiSP32 runs here 17 hours a day
along with the FBB BBS system.  While these are running I can use Word
Perfect and even Netscape.  All of these running at the same time and no

I have heard of some software programs that caused the clock to run slow,
but these were in the older DOS versions.  I don't think that WiSP is the
culprit here.

Does the clock run OK when the other software is shut down and WiSP is
running?  How much RAM do you have and have you ever run the Resource Meter
or the System Monitor while the problem was present?  What versions of the
WiSP modules are you running.
