Site clock issues?
      #95137 - Tue Jul 22 2014 12:36 PM

I know this is nit-picky but then I am a scientist and it comes with the mind-set. The clock on this site seems to pick up time very quickly. About 3 weeks ago it was over 10 minutes fast. I sent a PM to an admin and they adjusted it. Now today, I notice is it about 6 or 7 minutes fast again. Is that clock based on a single computer or a server clock or what? I am just curious how and why this happens. My computer clock is almost never more than a minute from actual time....thanks for caring!

Its an automated update issue (probably a host issue) that Mike is working on and it requires a manual adjustment until he can resolve the problem.

(While I'm at it, I'll move this thread to the Site Updates Forum since it will get more visibility there - and thanks for the inquiry.)

Thanks, Ed. One of your guys fixed it a couple of weeks ago when i sent an IM....I think it was Doug? I just keep noticing it. Not a huge deal but an annoyance for a scientific OCD like me.
