    I’ve been keeping check of the time for several days now and observed that the reported server time is 22 minutes ahead of the time I show on my computer. Not really much of an issue but I wasn’t sure if anyone else had reported this. Keep this in mind when scanning the logs or making a report of the time for some reason.

    I’ve checked the available time settings and I have the proper GMT setting choosen so please don’t bother suggestting that I check my settings.

    I read the logs almost daily, and I’m positive I’ve never encountered this problem.

    I can confirm this.
    The time showing on the forum server is indeed off by 22-23 minutes.

    Has been for as long as I can remember (which isn’t long!)

    That’s the problem with being positive. @parasti wrote:

    Then that time has yet to come and I will be ready. In my own defence, I was obviously speaking about the game logs, not the “logs” of this forum or web-site.

    Attention Clock Keeper:

    Perhaps clock keepers have gone the way of lamp lighters, cobblers, stone masons, etc..

    As of the twenty fourth day of December in the year 2007 A.D., the server time is now approximately thirty minutes fast. Either the world is slowing or more likely, the clock timer on the server is running a bit fast as evidenced by the time difference reported in my initial post.

    It has come to my attention that the clock keeper has reset the clock. You may find that you need to go into your profile and reset your time zone. 8)

    That is all.

    Congratulations to the clock keeper. The server time seems to be stable.

    This is a test.
    It is only a test.

    This is a test of the server time settings.

    The actual time of this posting was 11:10 AM GMT

    Update : The server time shown (12:35 PM) is 1 Hour and 25 minutes ahead of the actual time.

    It appears that automatic updates utiliziing off site sources may not be desired. If so, then a closer study should produce a reliable formula for making periodic and automatic adjustments to the server clock using the server software only.

    The site linked below presents a running GMT clock for Dublin, Ireland.
    It is very informative about various time issues and is nicely designed.

    linux uses something called ntp (network time protocol). the scorched site seems to be on a dedicated server these days and, i dont know, but i can make a very confident guess that gcamp is the only guy around here with system level access.

    theres no point spamming up the forum. maybe you should send a pm.

    http headers report fedora. if you want to help constructively, try hitting up the fedora forums for terms like ntp, ntpq and ntp.conf, time drift and hardware clock.

    im sure gc would love some advice on how to fix it. xmas coming up, recession; thats probably exactly the kind of diversion he needs. id probably link him up with some wiki pages on time zones, leap seconds and the history of greenwich while i was at it. you can never have too much background information when planning an efficient and proper procedure for setting your clock.

    I’ve deleted one post by tumbleweed. tumble, consider this a verbal warning.

    IMO, there is no reason to make a clock issue a “player complaint”. This issue could be placed in several places…..

    None the less, the thread originated in “complaints” and I will return it to its place if you wish. However, I’m, just going to split it, and delete the newest, starting at whatever point you want, I will not be issuing “written” warnings this time. I will be trying to monitor the complaints forum more regularly in the future. I’ve been in the habit for some time since summer of not really checking all the forums as I got really behind.
