    Tom, I compared the above clock via stopwatch with my local talking clock
    which I have used for satellite timing for at least fifteen years.
    It seemed about 0.5 seconds out. Considering the long transmission path
    and an interptred code (java) this delay does seems reasonable.
    It is possible to properly synchronize your computer clock with UTC
    using the NTP or SNTP protocol. You need a programme running in background.
    You will find some discussion on the USNO site.
    Also in the seesat archives.
