Hi Mitchell,

Please explain it to those of us who're not too techie oriented. Are you referring to the clock on your computer or some kind of a clock that receives a satelite signal to keep it accurate?

Okay, thanks. Now I understand. I think my new CD player has one because I've never had to set the time on the damned thing, which is for me the greatest technological innovation of the millenium. No time glitches though.

They are clocks that receive a signal and it adjust the time on your clock to the atomic clock. Some cars also have them. It is a good idea to have one if you live in an area that has a lot of power failures.

Thanks Chad.


I've got one that occasionally goes haywire. Mine is supposed to receive a radio signal to keep itself on track but we have very poor radio reception here.

I suppose that stray radio waves in that frequency would play havoc with one of these things.

I was thinking this was all foolish, until my wife fried up some eggs and bacon last night for supper. She was looking a little older and had a few more grey hairs and kept babbling about AARP.

I quickly recognized the problem, thanks to TIJ and Captain, and ran back to the office and re-set the atomic clock.

Things are good in Mid-Mich now; wife is friskey, lower colesterol, no missed appts, etc..

Thank You Captain!
