    What software do you use to synch the time of your Macs (desktop and portables) with the Atomic Clocks?

    I use OS X's built-in automatic time synching via the Date & Time panel in System Preferences, set to time.asia.apple.com. I understand these time servers are synched to the nanosecond with official atomic clock servers, so there's really no need to get a third-party app for it, DJ.

    Good to know about the auto synching Adel, thanks.

    A little off topic though,

    One thing nice about Panther is that you can put your day,date & digital time on your desktop as a semi transparent floating window.

    Thing is, I can seem to set it using the 24 Hr. military type format. Anyway to do this? Tried to reset it in the Date & Time, but it never alters the floating window, still AM & PM.

    TIA, Cheers, :)

    Open system prefs, click date & time , click open international . Then you have all the options for time and date formats
