Thread: Is there a windows clock program that updates it's display with subsecond accuracy?

  1. Is there a windows clock program that updates it's display with subsecond accuracy?

    Every clock program or display tried with XP seems to update at
    somewhat random intervals. Some updates will be a second or more slow
    and other wont be quite as much. Is there something out there that
    will display something closer to the system clock that's being
    maintained via NTP? Realistically I probably don't need a display
    that's perfect but sometimes it's fun to be a little better than good
    enough.

    Ryan,

    My Tiny Ben (as opposed to Big Ben) program should be within about 100msec
    or so.

    Thanks, Ryan.

    It came as a result of also having a speaking-clock program, and having
    that running on three PCs simultaneously. Having the three PCs all speak
    at /just/ the same time is a nice way to check that NTP is working. When
    they speak slightly differently, I can check (but usually NTP is still
    fine). The speaking clock also works in Swedish and German....

    Cheers,
    David
