    No problemo. I have one of those alarm clocks that is supposed to get the correct time from WWV. Too bad the critter runs three minutes fast (?).

    Yeah, another quality item down the dust. Guess they'll be selling clock UPS's with crystal oscillators soon.

    I had seen the story on physorg.com. Pretty disgusting overall.

    Wonderful! [NOT!]

    All our alarm systems which feature scheduling ("Disarm yourself at 8:00 A.M. to allow employees to enter") will be fouled up.

    There will be a new "gps" clock on the market to fill the need.
