Set Your System Clocks!
« on: October 31, 2013, 12:26:25 PM »
Hey guys,

The new 51% defense code is due to arrive in less than 100 blocks,

to take advantage of this new feature however, you will have to set your system date/time correctly.

Please set your system date/time according to http://tycho.usno.navy.mil/simpletime.html

Or

If you are a windows user, you can simply click on the time,

Now select "Change date and time settings..."

Now go to the "Internet Time" tab,

Now click "Change Settings",

Check the checkbox labelled "Synchronize with an Internet time server"

Select the server "time-a.nist.gov" from the drop down list,

And press "Update now"

Now press OK.

That's it, you're set!

Please remember that if you're system date/time are off by anymore than 30 seconds from network time, the client may malfunction.

This can be sorted at any time, simply by closing the client, setting your date/time correctly and opening it up again.

I recommend following these instructions, if you should find that your system loses time often:

What will happen the next time the US government shuts down and websites such as this are taken off line?

I don't know if this one was taken off line but the US Population Clock and the Amount owing pages were both deactivated during the recent shutdown.

If that should happen then simply use a different time server...

The one I linked is for military use, it won't go down unless there's something seriously wrong in the USA.
