    AO clock is over 10 mins ahead

    The clock is 23:55 and the stats show this about users online at :
    Most On At Once:
    152 - Today 12:07 AM
    I have noticed this before also but thought that it might get corrected. Obviously not. Put the server to synchronize the time with some atomic clock every once in a while...

    Most On At Once:
    152 - Today 12:07 AM

    is the time that the most users were on at once...so it doesn't have any relation to the current time....

    Well, it would appear to be at least 10 or so minutes faster than NTP.

    Currently the front page says:
    Code:
    Most On At Once: 
    196 - Today 05:07 PM
    And when I checked it, my strat-2 host says:

    Code:
    Wed May 29 16:57:36 PDT 2002

    I noticed that when I started my account the other day, but I did not think anything of it.
