Re: ao-27?

I am still baffled as to why this is happening...  the clock on the AO-27 website agrees with my PC clock, we are both using the same EPOCH.TXT and TOPR.TXT files, and yet the website is somehow calculating different event times than my son's program (which, as you said, appears to be calculating the correct times).

I just checked now, and at this moment, the website is behind by just over 5 minutes...  I should try to get in touch with Mike Wyrick and see if he can tweak something over there at ao27.org.
