Aiseesoft FoneLab is the most reliable iPhone/iPad/iPod data recovery software

Chronograph is a simple utility that synchronizes your computer's internal clock to the atomic time. Standard internal clocks are usually very incorrect, and need frequent manual corrections. Chronograph automatically maintains correct time using atomic clock servers of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

The program is extremely helpful for every computer user. It is a must have for professionals who need correct time permanently (e.g. stock traders). Chronograph provides a high degree of accuracy - the difference between local computer time and actual time after correction will rarely exceed 0.5 seconds. This slight difference is caused by an unavoidable network transmission delay.

#125 & #126:

I would normally agree with you, but not in this case. Windows already comes with this and/or there are much better freeware out there. Just because something is free doesn't mean you can't critique it. If you don't want to hear complaints than you should disconnect from the world and go live in a cave!

Altrix team, thank you for the encore. I had missed the chronograph the first time around. Giveaway team ... thank you for reading the forum suggestions and granting 'encore' giveaways!

Bladed Thoth ... You were among the first to offer insightful, comprehensive reviews of the software offered on this site; you developed more than a following, kind sir. You and the handful of others (White Rabbit, Merril, Swan et al) writing in-depth reviews are, apparently, the only ones who understand the purpose of this forum. Others, bent on posting every thought that passes through their mind, are posting to inflate their egos. No surprise, considering their over-inflated sense of entitlement. Responses are like balm to them. Continue doing what you do best. We are behind you 100%, and support the Giveaway team and their efforts 100%.

(For those who do not quite 'get it,' the forum is supposed to generate feedback for the developers on the viability of their product. Helpful comments might include a list of the pros and cons discovered during your trial usage, your 'wish list' of features, thoughtful suggestions on the pricing scale and faults the program produced on your system. Go ahead and list freeware that serves the same purpose because the developers may not know about their duplicated efforts. The posts do not have to be lengthy or grammatically correct. And for pity's sake, stop asking for ways to hack the registration codes; dishonesty aside, such efforts are akin to pee'n in your own cornflakes...the Giveaway site will drop like a hot rock if your hacking continues.)

A salute to the Giveaway team .. thanks again for your efforts.

Hey #14 - What you need is the talking alarm clock. It will read off time at regular, user nominated intervals, sound an alarm at designated time and appear over the top of any screen, if desired. It is available for FREE at: http://www.lux-aeterna.com/clock.

This program is useless and beyond that, it doesn't work properly. I'm currently on a laptop running windows Vista and installed the program (doing the required run as administrator thing on the activate program because it didn't work without it) and whenever I ran the program it would look fine.. Would have a funny redish background behind the clock, but I could deal with that.. Then I started using the computer with it up, and found that whenever I minimize a window or have a window non-maximized, the redish background would go lighter and the text color of the clock would go white and I couldn't read the clock at all. I tried all the settings and changed between clock skins but couldn't fix the problem. I've uninstalled the program. Not even worth the price of free as it took away my standard clock and still didn't work. Would never dream of paying $19.95 for this...

To #83 (Hempman): Yes, I rebooted both; This was clock cycles specifically for this application and only went away once I shut down unfortunately.

To #96 (Kevin R. Martin): Mind me asking what specifically might be disliked about my reviews? Is it the length in particular?

Thanks all for your feedback :)

#10 What features are you talking about? The fact that it syncronizes your clock? There are plenty of free programs that do this and Windows already does it too.

I guess you aren't that professional than. Maybe you're a Doctor of psychology. Those are the only kind of doctors that can twist something like this around.

Paying $19.95 for this would just be total ineptitude, but I'm sure there are some consumers out there who will be ripped off by this software(eldery people doing stock trading).

I can't belive GATD would giveaway this and make us think people would actually pay for it. I don't usually complain this much about FREE s/w but when it is made to appear to be worth something when it's not I feel we need to make it clear to other people so they won't be ripped off!

I have to say - it would seem like a good idea, if Windows didn't already support it. I have issues sometimes with Windows updating my time, when I bring my PC out of hibernation, but this is not the way to go. I give the software a 1!

You're allowed to place a last minute bid on ebay--that's part of an auction and part of the fun. Sorry you can't understand how auctions work.
After your irrelevant whining comment, you complain about whiners!

I didn't download this giveaway because I already have a freeware utility that does the job, so don't need it.
I'm grateful to all the people who take the trouble to comment helpfully on the programmes.
I didn't require this particular program, but, as always, I look forward to seeing what tomorrow brings. Thanks, GOTD.

A chronograph is not just a clock: It's more of a stopwatch. It "graphs" the start-time and stop-time of an event, so to speak. This software is a time-synchronization utility with only a few minor enhancements over the usual Windows clock program. As such, it should have been called "Time Sync" or something like that instead.

I don't think the developer meant to mislead people by calling it Chronograph, but why would anyone who really needs a precise time display rely on software from a company that doesn't really know the difference? You can buy a real clock dedicated to synchronizing the time probably for less than this software and it won't use any computer resources at all!

Anyone who relies on their computer to tell them what time it is should seriously consider getting out for some fresh air. And anyone who would lay out $20 so their computer will show them what time it is should seriously consider therapy.
And Hempman, you should consider an evening with Maalox and Mantovani. You're a stroke waiting to happen.

I aggree with #58. I use Dimension 4, and have for several years now. The first atomic synchronization I had ever seen. Can run in the background then shuts down. Almost forget that it is in my XP machine. Dimension 4 v5.0 is the latest version out now. So simple, a caveman could do it. http://www.thinkman.com/dimension4/index.htm .

While I too at times have wondered what is BladedThoth's exact connection to GAOTD (note the direct link to his reviews on top of page) I trust it simply has to do with the fact BladedThoth each and every day does not only comment but actually bothers to write an actual review which is appreciated by many visitors. To #71; instead of making anonymous nasty accusations which clearly make little sense (self-serving and bordering on fraud exactly how eh?) have the courage to identify yourself and try substantiate. If not capable of that I suggest you STFU...

Hello once again, small people! Wise Owl here, with your daily WISE comments. Are you ready for them? Here they come...

Yes, another GREAT program! One that I will surely try, but my ESP tells me already that it is GREAT.

Why should you get this great program? I will tell you using small words that even penguins can easily understand:

Simple: this is far better than your normal house clock. For one thing, your normal clock is big and metal, and you must wind it. NOT SO, with this clock. It is self winding! And no batteries are needed, unless you just want to buy them strictly for juggling purposes.

What's more, this handy program utilizes ATOMIC CLOCK POWER. Basically, heavy water is used in a large vessel and the rapid change in temperature causes steam pressure which spins the mighty turbines. Never mind the details, because this all happens outside your computer anyway, in the atomic clock compound hidden in some pretty mountains.

One more big reason that you should get and use this clever program is that it will prevent you from being late. You don't like to be late do you? Haven't your friends complained enough already? Then get this program, and your problem will be solved. Of course, if you don't have any friends, and no job, then you will never be late anyway, but there is no program to help with that (yet).

So take the advice of WISE OWL, and use this great program, small people. Your life will be better, and the planet will surely be better, when time is on your side.

Your friend,

Wise Owl

To #71: I normally wouldn't warrant a response from such irresponsible drivel as what you have stated; However, I feel that this elicits a response. I do not have to give you any information, especially when you speak with such ignorance. If you would have spent some time on my site, you would have found more information on what my site is and my reviews but unfortunately you clearly have not gone beyond the review page so I have no pity on you. If you would have asked nicely, I would have no issues telling you; I have no qualms about taking criticism. I do however have an issue with people randomly throwing empty comments which border libel. All of my reviews are my own independent views on a software title and are my views alone. Feel free to look over my previous reviews and see that my reviews are educated and well thought-out based on my experience with it.

My reviews are aimed first and foremost towards the community of visitors of Giveaway of the Day to give them an insightful angle on the software title of the day. I do this so people can have a better idea of what an application entails before they download an application. If you were to install an application every single day just to try it yourself, soon your system will slow to a crawl and become unbearable, even if you uninstall them all (Registry bloat is a big issue, as is leftover files, etc.)

Secondly, I have no issues with the fact that the software publishers/authors read my reviews in hope that they can use my information alongside their loyal customers’ and others at Giveaway of the Day to improve their product, debug the issues and become a wonderful application; If it is already a good application - Congratulations!

I personally believe every application can grow into a wonderful tool with the proper care from both its author as well as the feedback from their users. Sometimes things don’t mesh up well - Other times it is a matter of a conflict of the software with another title which may be hard to hammer out. I have been contacted by authors of software titles after my review is done on many occasions so that they can get more insight on a bug I may have encountered, or an idea I pitched in a review. I have no issues with aiding anyone who asks of it. I am even willing to re-review a title outside the giveaway of the day if such is requested.

If you’d like to toss around terms such as ‘self-serving’ and ‘fraud’ further with no real statement of why, I have no interest in anything you say because you clearly are not mature enough to dignify an intelligent response. If you would like to let me know your opinion of why you feel my review is off today, I would gladly discuss it with you here, my forums or by email if you so desire. If you wish to know my affiliation with Giveaway of the Day, you can re-read my statements above and if it is not clear by this point, I have no issues letting you know further if you choose to ask in a less hostile request. (If anyone wants to know as well, you can ask me or even GotD if they’d like to respond as well.)

P.S. Thanks hempman for stepping in as well.

Setting the system time and displaying it are two different functions. People shouldn't be using these types of utilities that bang on stratum 1 time servers, whose primary purpose is to provide a reference for stratum 2 time servers (Microsoft's may be stratum 1, but they provide it specifically for the built-in Windows time clients). Do what #17 suggests, use a pool, or at least a large number of stratum 2 or 3 time servers. Most people are best served by Windows' built-in time client; you can use whatever you want to display the time. None of the information on this page about time accuracy is correct (nor are the claims about how the Windows time client works); neither these utilities nor Windows will provide the claimed accuracy. People who need seriously accurate time don't use the Windows time client, and certainly don't use any of these types of utilities.

There are freeware apps that do this too - and that use a lot less ram. My favorite is Atomic Clock Sync by Chaos Software. You can get that tiny gem of an application at Download.com or Winsite.com (and likely others - as well as the software company's website under their "Legacy" software section).

I am not aware of either ntp or sntp being proxyable in anyway shape or form, not in the sense of http(s) or socks proxies.
If this tool truely functions behind firewall blocking direct communication by using a normal http or socks proxy, then it is not performing ntp or sntp in any way that could be considered accurate but is probably just using the returned http 1.1 header time stamps which will always have an intrinsic error of the half ping latency compared to a true ntp or sntp server on the same target machine.

If you are in a locked down private LAN environment the IT staff have the responsibility to provide an externally syncronised NTP/SNTP server inside the secured perimiter and all on-site machines should be configured to use that local machine to sync their internal RTC's to. Plenty of 3rd party sntp/ntp clock syncronisers with built-in server capability exactly for this purpose.

That is the nearest one can get to proxying NTP or SNTP.

Simple way to reconfigure all on-site PC's would be to load the LAN's time.windows.com or any of the others in the windows "Internet Time" GUI list DNS entry in the internal caching DNS server to point to the internal NTP/SNTP server.

Problem solved and LAN remains secured.

To No.71 Norwood Enterprises, everyone that visits this website is self-serving. That's kind of the point, we want free software. Although I don't like the Bladedthoth reviews myself, his points are as valid as anyone else that traffics through here.

For the "FreewareAlchoholic" only:
go to > control panel > date and time, set a virtual date, let's say 20 days ago,
now run that program you love so much but it's only a 30 days trial version (few minutes later you can reset the actual date in the same way)
...well you can do this every day as long you desire, IT'S UP TO YOU!!
Yes, you can use "Chronograph" for monitoring the new date but remember to unchek the automatic time syncronization !!

I'v only had the time differ, when the battery went out on a desktop pre-2000. I check my time,(from time to time) with my cell phone, and its alway's right on.

I know it can't be easy to obtain quality good software on a daily basis, but many thanks to everyone doing the best they can. It just means that if you really want something, like most things in life, "good things come to those who wait", and are patient, and then seize the opportunity. Really, it makes things much "tastier".

That being said, I think too for all the "beta" testers, and those who really don't need a particular program, but have the time to download and just check out someones work, this is an excellent opportunity to "test" the waters so to speak and see what programs strike a chord, really work, and with constructive feedback, its a good thing.

I am not sure if this has been said previously as I unfortunately do not have time (no pun intended!!) to check - but no-one with Windows needs ths program - because they already have it.

Right click on your clock on the bottom right of your screen, choose Adjust Date/Time, choose Internet Time and then scroll to time.nist.gov - you then have kept over 2MB of uncompressed space free on your hard drive whilst have an NIST updating clock exactly the same as this software.

The free program Dimension 4 does the same thing, and can act as a time server for other computers on your local network as well. Sorry, this one rates as one big snooze.

By the way: people should use the time servers at pool.ntp.org and relieve the load on the government servers.

When Installing, got an "export" error of some sort. It installed anyway.
Had to active AFTER install, but setting did not "stick."
2nd activation AFTER install worked. [ Keeps registration ]
I have not experienced the CPU useage problem with program running.
My cpu runs only 5 or 6 percent even with it running.
Also no memory hog problem either.
I am running XP on a Celeron.
Program seems to do what it says it will.

A friendly WARNING about atomic clocks in general. I've tried to download atomic tray clocks in the past (NOT the one offered today I hasten to add) and my firewall has always signalled the following message :

SECURITY CONSIDERATIONS
......has loaded TrayClock.dll into the Parent application using a global hook which could be used by keyloggers to steal private information.....

I must reiterate that I'm NOT referring to the specific program being offered today! However, given that warning message concerning similar programs, I have decided not to entertain atomic tray clocks on my computer.

Despite the above, I remain a loyal fan of the GAOTD website.

Love, Light and Peace

Gotta love Win - CPU usage returned to a more normal state after rebooting. Now, Chronograph only hogs CPU cycles when checking the time. Still a huge memory footprint, though.


Also, no better than Windows Internet Time Update as far as sync'ing the system clock. I first set the time with Internet Time Update. Wait a few seconds, try Chronograph - got a message that indicated that it had nothing to do.

For those who claim problems with Win ITU, are you running a firewall? It is a fact that McAfee Firewall, for one, directly interferes with Win ITU (as well as slowing one's system down horribly).

If you like kludge, this looks pretty and lets you tweak the skin, but that is about that.

BladedThoth, did you try rebooting to see if CPU useage returned to anything near normal?

Not a bad program, not particularly useful though. I find that computer's clock internet time doesn't work because it can't connect or something. I've set mine to:
hu.pool.ntp.org
This one has never failed for me and it gives me the correct time.

Hope this is not a repeat post. I had numerous glitches and had to re-enter the site.

I installed Chronograph and find, just as BladedThoth, that Chronograph is a huge memory/CPU hog. With the service running, I am hovering around 16% CPU use. Normally, CPU usage is no higher than about 2% unless some real important program is running. Even as I type this, CPU useage does not go ever 8%.

Start Chronograph and CPU shoots to 100%, then settles in at about 16%. A WAY huge hog of CPU time. And, I am running an AMD 64 with Windows XP Pro 64.

Flaot the pointer over the systray Chronograph and BANG up to 100% again. While holding the opinter over the clock, now CPU cycles are stuck right at 23%. Way too huge of a performance hit.

Also, when I start Chronograph, memory useage shoots up - almost 1.2 M ram suddenly disappears.


To #71 "Norwood Enterprises". Exactly what about accurate volunteer reviews would cause your "legal department" idiots (or just you) such concern that you to post such inflamatory garbage as calling a someone who volunteers thier reviews "self-serving", and exactly what "borders on fraud"? Seems like YOU are the one with libel problems. Post your real name, or wallow in your complete lack of credibility.
