hey, it's still 10pm here!

I used to get a kick out of watching people come into the church service an hour late each year.

My clock sets itself 6 times a day by the Atomic clock in Boulder, Colorado. I'm a fanatic about correct time, so when I moved back here I got that clock. In California I could just call a phone number and get the correct time. Here, I can't. Of course, I married a guy who couldn't care less about time (unless we aren't home in time for Star Trek Enterprise!).

P.S. In addition to changing your clocks, don't forget to change the batteries in your smoke detectors.

BTW jkath, have you ever noticed that those same people don't usually show up an hour early when Daylight Saving Time goes off in the fall? LOL

Barbara L, here is the Official U.S. Time Clock.

I like your clock, I hate changing all the clocks in the house. My clock/thermometer also automatically changes the time itself.

Since DST begins at 2:00 am local ... I've still got 1hr 14min to go before I "spring forward". I really hate that ... it takes my biologic clock 6-months to reset .. and then they change the time again .... ARRGH!!!!

I don't have an "atomic" clock ... I just listen to WWV and set my clocks every couple of days. If I'm playing on the radio (amateur radio) I'll check it every day.

My PDA, computer, laptop, answering machine and thermometer clocks will reset themselves. Too many clocks and so little time!!

Michael, here are a couple web sites I use quite often. Some time I think they get the time from my computer

I'm impressed with the clock on this site. It contionusally updates itself. Accuracy ???
