Have no idea what is going on in your computer,  Bob.  Are you using the
latest versions of either MSIE or Netscape?  They have the correct Java code.

I ma looking at the site right now on the other computer,  and it is in
agreement with WWVH not more than 15 miles from my QTH,  as reading
out right now on my Heath Most Accurate Clock (syn'd to WWVH).

You computer should not be reading out the NISC clock with several seconds
error unless your Java code is not up to date.
