I'm skeptical and am more inclined to think ntp has measurement
problems or a decimal has been missed or something but it's easy to
check with real world direct simple data which I always prefer, so we
shall see.

The reason I am skeptical is I have lots of machines that don't use ntp
and I'd expect but of course could be very wrong that I would have
noticed if I had to fix the clocks by 8 minutes per year. I'll mark
this mail and let the list know.

What I am less likely to get around to is comparing this data to what
ntp would suggest the skew is for each machine, but no matter for now.


 Why not do something good every day and install BOINC.
