How do you synchronise your computer clock to the latest time?

Alter it every year following a quick glance at your wristwatch? Occasionally dial 1-2-3 and attentively listen to the 'Time Sponsored By Accurist'? Or do you only bother when management reports for September start cropping up in August?

Well, whatever your method there's a better way.

Very few know it, but you can connect to the clocks of amazingly powerful computers from all around the world with just the Winsock control and a little crafty code.

It's worth noting that so few Visual Basic programmers actually know about the neat methods we'll be discovering today, one control company actually sells this functionality.

I'm not going to mention the company name it wouldn't be fair on Mabry (www.mabry.com) but a ten-user version of Time/X with source code would cost you well over a grand.

So read on to find out how you can synchronise your computer clock and perhaps save yourself a few quid in the process.
