    Is anyone else using WinXP getting the wrong time in their system clock?
    My XP is set to auto update the time from the time.NIST.gov site once a
    week.
    This morning, after sending some NG messages, I noticed that my message
    time was 3 hours earlier than the time that I actually sent the
    messages. I checked my system clock and confirmed that it was 3 hours
    off. The time zone setting was correct for my computer.
    I manually reset my system clock to the correct time. I then went back
    to the internet time setting and manually reset my clock from the NIST
    site and my system time went back 3 hours again. If I use the
    Time.Windows.com site, the time is correct.
    I tried browsing to the NIST site and I got an operation time out.
    Perhaps the site was hacked?

    Update: It's OK now. The NIST site gives the correct time.
    Check your system time anyway, in case you have the auto reset feature
    of WinXP.
