Out of the Blue

I recently noticed the clock on my PC was a bit off, which was surprising considering it is supposed to synchronize with a theoretically accurate time server. A little searching the tubes revealed I was not the only one unable to connect with either time.windows.com or time.nist.gov, as posts complaining of similar issues can be found going back months now. One of the posts suggested using time-a.nist.gov, which indeed works for me, but it is a bit odd that this seems to be so widespread.

Hot Links! Thanks Ant and Mike Martinez.

Instead of using one or two specific time servers, why not use several rotating ones, which are unlikely to be all down at any given time? Even better, how about being able to set a pool of time servers on the same continent as your location?

http://www.pool.ntp.org/

The pool.ntp.org project is a big virtual cluster of timeservers striving to provide reliable easy to use NTP service for millions of clients without putting a strain on the big popular timeservers.
