If it gets thrown off, it is NOT a successful "clock design" and
therefore does not even qualify as a clock at all. So none of you idiots
gets to call the failed designs "a clock" because NONE of them qualify.
You got that, you idiots?
Function is a prerequisite for use of the term. PROPER function.
Which is why you are completely clueless about it. You do not know
what the term function means, much less along with the modifier "proper".
The latter rings true in your case in particular.
It's amazing how some people are so quick to hurl insults that they never bother
to carefully read the post they are replying to. How would buying all atomic
clocks solve the problem with my VCRs and DVR?
Your VCR and DVR do not rely on the AC line freq.
So, your entire post where you piss and moan about this "problem" is
moot, because there is NO problem, other than the one that resides
between your ears.
They BOTH use the same kind of clock a computer uses, which is from
your initial setting, and a 32.768 crystal oscillator.
IF the DVR uses a subscription service, THEY update your clock.
Anybody with half a brain does not rely on such a stupid source to
"gander at the time" with.
SO, asswipe... BUY the radio clock, and use it to reference the
CORRECT time. If you are having problems with your cheap, off-brand crap
electronics, use the radio clock to periodically (you do know that word,
right?) update your shit electronics' clocks.
Next time, buy a name brand. Coby sucks, big time.
Sheesh, you still have a VCR in your SHIT gear stack?
Why are we even responding to a Luddite putz?
How is that for getting the insult you claimed you already got (which
was an insult in itself), you stupid ditz?
Why do you question my ability to be able to tell time? The clocks on my DVR
and VCRs run fast. How could or would you know otherwise?
And my Win XP computer automatically goes periodically to a time standard web
site (nist.gov) to correct any drift that might otherwise happen. Not my
add-on, it's part of XP (as you probably know, since I see that you are a Forte
agent newsreader user).
As I said previously, if you would have taken as much time to read my original
posting as you are spending on spewing your hysterical insults you would not
have made this irrelevant comment. I have already said that I do not use a TV
subscription service, I get my reception over the air.
If you are having problems with your cheap, off-brand crap
By what supernatural powers do you claim to know the brands of my equipment?
You may not think much of Toshiba, Sony, but they are probably at least in the
mid-range of quality for consumer electronics.
Two of them. Enjoy the thought!
P.S. Don't bother responding as I've set up a filter to send your electrons

What is in question is not your capacity to examine a display, dorkass.
What is in question is your capacity to have decided that they were tied
to the line frequency when you have no clue what circuitry resides in the
The fact that you could not discern such a simple premise is quite a
tell as well.
Not always. Not automatic either. It has to be set up that way, and
it is not the default.
What a dope. It is not about what I am using. It is about knowing
what is being used.
A computer ONLY updates online if it is setup that way.
I do NOT set mine up that way, because I DO want to know how much, if
any drift my PC's clocks may or may not have.
Um... inaccurate clocks.
One does not hear of such things from name brand devices, so it was
easy to arrive at. It MAY not be true, but since you are withholding
instead of declaring what you have, the feeling sways even further toward
that assumption, asshole.
You're a total retard, in fact. Announcing your filter file edit
sessions is the second most retarded thing a ditzy Usenet user like you
The top spot is for filtering to begin with. Your behavior is pathetic,
