Windows XP time sync


In getting ready for the two ARISS contacts this morning, I noticed the two 
of my Windows XP computers showed time about one minute different between 
the two computers.  When I tried to synchronize time by going to 
settings/control panel/date and time/internet time and do "Update Now", it 
failed with both of the time servers given there.

I put in the time server:  time-A.timefreq.bldrdoc.gov  (letter L in small 
in bldrdoc) and it worked.  Now these two computers have the same and 
correct time again.

I thought you may want to know, for accurate ISS tracking purposes, 
especially during ARISS events.
