    Question Forum clock running fast?

    Can the Forum's clock be adjusted?

    If it uses NTP, has its NTP client stopped working, perhaps?

    The CosmoQuest Forum's clock seems to be running about 6-7 minutes fast. This can cause technical problems if it gets too far off. I happened to notice this discrepancy when I edited a post a little while ago. It said my edit happened at 4:30 PM EST although the current time actually was more like 4:24 PM.

    I'm sorry if this is a frequently asked question. I did a couple of searches with "obvious" parameters but didn't find any similar posts. I did find some posts mentioning the need to use ntp, though (dated 2013 in one of the archived "Build Team" development threads).

    Definitely off, but it doesn't really affect me.

    Is there perhaps a gravitational anomaly around the area where the server is kept?
    As above, so below

    In Elizabeth Tower where Big Ben is kept there is a plate on which rest some old coins to adjust the clocks speed....not sure how that works, but maybe the CQ needs a coin taken off or put on

    That only works for vinyl phonograph needles.
    Has anyone notice the forum skipping a lot?
