Who set the clock on the Press f1 server?
Seems to be running about 5 minutes fast

Hi,

How about 10 minutes fast?

I recently made a post at 9:03pm and then after that, I saw 9:14pm.
Here's me worried about my CPU been faster than my clock!!

Have a look at this thread (http://pressf1.pcworld.co.nz/thread.jsp?forum=1&thread=36922&message=177799) also that thread give the resign why Press F1 clocks are fast.

It's the expanding universe, first it was 4 minutes, then 8 minutes, now 10 minutes. PF1 is now about 100 million miles away from Upper Hutt, we may also be experiencing a time distortion similar to the twins paradox. It is just possible that when Bruce gets back into our time he will not have aged at all, but we will all be greyed haired (as I am already).

And you should all be resigned to it. :D It's only a few degrees East, anyway, not 100 million miles. The sun doesn't rotate that fast around the Earth. :D

No no Graham, originally PF1 was a few angular minutes WEST of Upper Hutt, now it's somewhere heading for a galaxy far far away.

On the other hand, I suppose it could also be explained by a tectonic plate movement that has shifted PF1 12.5 degrees east with no-one noticing.

T P. do not apply for a job on the Enterprise,your calculations are way out!

Remember a starship's main computer, particularly when the computer has been fashioned in a cylindrical form. The computer core changes when in a time warp.
Or something like that;)
