Publisher's Description

HiClock gives you an easy, thorough way to synchronize your system clock to the exact time using the Internet. This program queries the timeservers of the National Institute of Standards and Technology, which return the correct standard time directly to your computer. HiClock automatically converts Standard time to your local time and then compares this setting to the internal system time on your computer, making adjustments if necessary. Time checks occur automatically after each connection. The program has two alarm clocks and supports skins. Once set up the host computer can serve as a timeserver to any size network. The host can be set to check NIST time as often or seldom as desired, and each computer in the network can likewise be set to check time on the host computer as often as deemed necessary by the network administrator.

Again & again !!
1. Add week-numbers to the Windows XP clock : something that the WinXP clock is missing. Do not create something new here ! Just make an add-on to the Windows XP clock !!!!!!!
My goodness, I wonder when somebody will pick up this one instead of programming like a chicken without a head !!!!!
2. Add the possibility to synchronise the clock ONCE A DAY over a switched phone network
That should not be that difficult.
Do you want to buy us your stuff? then stop programming and listen first what we would like to have !!!!!

Actually Windows has many features and many programs do the same but Microsoft as usually did this work badly. So, why don't use some beautiful programs?

Pretty enough, but in XP the synchronization functions are unnecessary since XP has this built in to the OS.

I'm in agreement with the majority here - why on earth would I pay for a program when you have the same thing done with the large amount of quality freeware programs available to do the exact same thing. Why on earth would any programmer waste their time on something like this?

Okay, I usually test programs before rating them and never rate them blind, but come on. $25 to set your system clock, with free programs all over the internet? Why not go to the NIST - http://www.boulder.nist....imefreq/service/its.htm - and get their free program? It's small and free and directly from the source. This must be for AOL people.

Seems to be quite good at getting rid of the spam. It may not be perfect, but it catches the spam quite efficiently and I have yet to see it trash a real email.

OK, perhaps it is good. But I find a many tools for this as FREEWARE (www.lab1.de). This tools are for pupils (as me) absolutly FREE. I use YAAC (freeware), it works fine and I make a donation (5 EURO) to the author. I think, that a commercial software way ist wrong - save your student 'pocked-money'.

It has a very nice interface which is important. You can change the skins and customize the sounds. Very small and easy to use. I love it! :)

This program is ADWARE, which in my book does not qualify as freeware. I didn't even make it through the setup before it became obvious that it was trash time. There are plenty of great "real" free time syncing programs available, and this isn't one of them.

installs and works flawlessly in windows 2000. It's also quite useful without being overly bloated.

I have a computer system that just never seems able to keep the correct time on it, so this program will serve me well
