Setting Atomic clocks accurately
 
Here's a tip to how you synchronize your clock accurately, thanks to National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), made it much easier to do that via Internet that is compatible for WINDOWS XP Operating System. Just click on the time at right side of your START bar or panel and click on tab "INTERNET TIME". You have to update it and select the time.nist.gov. Set and snchronized your computer time. OPEN registry editor ( I think you know how to open a registry.. click START-RUN and enter regedit) and navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SYSTEM \ ControlSet001 \ Services \ W32Time \ TimeProviders \ NtpClient. In right pane, you would see "SpecialPollInterval". Double click and set a decimal number (unit is seconds) to the frequency with which you want to have the automatic synchronization carried out.

Also you can add many more time servers directly into registry because by default all that you can see is two time servers in the drop down list. List of many other time servers is available at http://www.eecis.udel.edu/~mills/ntp/. To add any other time servers, get details about the server and then navigate to [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\DateTime\Servers] and adding them into the list.


All times are GMT -4. The time now is 06:30 AM.
