I don't have any idea how complex it is to make a
program (plugin) that calls an internet time server
and adjusts the system time. I think, that would be a
nice job for geoDT. Or at least, give the user the
chance to point the doubleclick on geODT to something
else, than the windows time/date settings. (i.e. a
timesync app)

    I've asked g9icy to have a look at doing this in
    geoDateTime or as a seperate plugin (which I could possibly
    merge into gDT anyway I guess).

    Can I suggest that this be taken care of by the sysinfo
    service? The sysinfo service is already going to handle the
    reporting of the date and time, so why not have it also sync
    with an NTP server.

    Remember, services control/define data, plugins/controls
    merely display and/or provide a UI with which to work with the
    data. IMHO, plugins/controls should not be able to inherently
    modify data.

    Heh. Don't mind me. I totally didn't notice that we were
    talking about R4 here and not R6. *blush*

    Windows has a timeserver service available already, I don't
    see the benefit of implementing that in a plugin where it
    would add overhead all the time...
