VremyaI downloaded this program from an InfoMac archive earlier this week, it's a very neat little gadget, and if you like having your system clock precise to the nearest second, I highly recommend putting this in your Startup Items folder.
Here's the text from the Read Me file...
"Vremya is an application that sets your Macintosh clock using version 1 of the Network Time Protocol as described in RFC 1059 by D. Mills. This is a simple implementation of NTP, but the accuracy is sufficient for the Macintosh clock.
"If you just want to set your Macintosh clock occasionally and quickly, and you don't want Control Panels and Extensions, Vremya is the solution for you.
"Vremya requires MacTCP. Vremya has been seen working under Open Transport.
"You should also have your geographical location set using the Map control panel and the Daylight Saving Time checkbox checked or unchecked to reflect your current state."
You can get it from Kirill Levchenko's website at:
In case you have trouble downloading it from their server, I put a copy in the downloads folder here:
PS: It's scriptable!
