View Full Version : Polk's Clock Fast?

Polk can't be using the same Atomic Clock that I am. I'm on E.S.T. and I use an Atomic Clock to keep my time and I'm aprox. eleven minutes behind them...

....I think they have the server clock hooked up to a Bose wave alarm clock or something. According to the Bose engineers it may look like a crappy time but in gives but once you use it you won't believe your Atomic Clock anymore.

Yeah, I think the clock might be fast. It actually is looking on the server for the time, which is located in Texas, which looks for the time somewhere else.
I guess all that lookin' takes time -- so to adjust, they just make it extra fast. Besides, I can say "Hey look, time to leave" a little earlier. :p

I just knew there would be a method to your maddness.

Bob I'm hearing you loud and clear babe. I got a Junghans Mega (Atomic) in the HT room, and a LaCrosse Technology on my atomic wrist. I am definitely NOT accustomed to working within such loose tolerances, being a precision sort of person and all.
These ultra-coolman timepieces are reset daily to within one billionth of a second accuracy. They are reset by radio transmission, making them in fact, radio-controlled watches and clocks.
That's enough of that, I dwelled about 3.8 minutes too long on that one.

I bet those texan's are using a potatoe clock like from that one show with that one side-kick guy.
I wasn't picking on texans, that's where he said the clock was from. If I WERE picking on texans I would point out it probably is those rednecks just trying to the fastest and biggest all the time, no pun intended.
