Well, my Linux box has synchronized its clock with some distant server --I don't know where-- every time I connect to Internet thanks to NTP (Network Time Protocol) for years now. I gave a quick look to the download area, it exists for Windows too. I haven't touched my clock since I installed XNTP. Time-savings are automatic and I use my computer to synchronize all the clocks in my house. It's free, contrarily to the "talking clock" on the phone. (I'm definitively not sure that 'talking clock" is the appropriate name.) ObConlang: tlaji : be roicū vire dil·sae rasa tiyō cuzūga.
