FWD: Re: Re: NISTIME 32 -- 32 bit TCP Time Client



When I dont use my Windows 95 PC at all (power off), it drifts about 4 seconds
per week .
When I run programs like Station, Word 6, Excel 5, WiSP, NecWin, etc, the drift
can be more than 30 seconds per day.
I suspect real time problems hidden somewhere in Windows 95.
(My time reference is a radio controlled clock)

Cheers

Is the PC time drifting?  Or is the internet link delay causing it to 
look like the PC time is drifting?
