Okay .. I missed that one. I suppose I'm so entrenched with the hunt
for 'good time' that questions like these completely baffle me ;)
After spending a lot of time configuring ntp, fiddling with DCF/77
receivers and cursing at standard issue PC hardware clocks I have a
hard time believing that people willingly and knowlingly want to go
back to the days of my (dad's) first XT, that booted DOS 2.x or 3.y
and asked if the date was really somewhere in the seventies ;P
Don't you just hate commercial software that has these ridiculous
timers built in ;) I prefer open software that politely asks me to
purchase a CD every six months to continue its development ;)
