I have one of those fancy dancy [dance] clocks that get their signal from the atomic clock in colorado. You are about 10 minutes fast. Just thought youd like to know.

Also look on the next pages for other threads on clocks or time, or do a search.

I'm sure this thought has already occured to TF, but a sticky thread about the time problem, and or a general 'known problems' thread would take care of this. Then again, the once every three months or so time is off thread isn't that bad is it?

When these threads pop up, ignore them or tell them it's been done already. It don't happen that often, do it? Or we could just ban the people who mention it... :goodjob:

Threads like this remind TF to set the time straight. It'll get out of whack again, but at least it'd be alright for a little while. :p

Maybe we could have a new forum, it could be "Clock Compliants"
:lol:

Hehe, same here! It's really one of those "you shouldn't be using CFC as a clock anyways" things.

"It's really one of those "you shouldn't be using CFC as a clock anyways" things."

I'm not the only one that thinks that, phew! Buy a watch, or just look out the window- if bright, day. If dark, night. If tie-died/funky, drunk.

Don't worry I don't use it as a clock and most others cannot, as otherwise we would have even more clock threads.

or in addition to ohwells comments about looking out the window just look at the bottom right hand corner off your screen and there should be a clock there

Yeah but that clock should be inaccurate as well. Mines a couple of minutes fast :)

Its a new time zone called cfctimezone Its not really a time zone but a zone where the timer zones out

I can't believe 'we' are still complaining about this. Just realize that CFC time is faster. :)

Exactly, get a watch or a clock as they tend to be much more reliable.

Well, Zyclen, your watch must be out. The forum is 8 minutes fast. Both of these windows were just refreshed :)

Yikes! Another old thread from August revived! :eek:

Anyway, how did the CFC clock become 8 minutes fast within three months?
