 The DOS clock keeps time just fine.  Chris' problem was that he was running in a DOS window on top of Windows 2000.  Windows NT/2K/XP are pre-emptive multi-tasking operating systems.  They will steal time away from other applications are regular intervals.  CT expects exclusive access to the CPU and hardware.

You must run CT in pure DOS, or be able to shut down Windows 95/98 to a DOS prompt.  Or use the CTWIN version on the web site.
