TWP/MWR/C2 - Uncertainty in clock time
At ARCS2, the MWR computer clock was not being updated because no NTP time service software was installed on the computer. During Nauru99, on 6/24/99, the clock was found to be 3 minutes and 17 seconds fast. Assuming that the time was properly set at installation on 10/26/98 (which is not indicated in the installation report) and never reset until 6/24/99, the rate of time drift on the computer was about +0.8 seconds per day. However, if the time was not reset since integration at AIS on 1/14/98 (which is recorded in my integration notes), then the rate of drift is about +0.4 seconds per day. The computer was replaced and time service started on 7/30/99.
