Drifter 1.1.1

Drifter 1.1.1

Drifter Publisher's Description

Drifter is a simple utility program designed to keep your PDA system clock accurate without the need to synchronize with an external time server.

Updates

1.1.1 - Fixed broken registration on devices with newer ROMs.

1.1.0 - Adds a set timezone function. Using the built-in Clock settings application on the Zaurus to change timezones will cause your clock to lose up to 60 seconds (and badly confuse Drifter's automatic calibration)! Using Drifter to change timezones will eliminate this problem.

Details

The system clocks on most computer systems are not very accurate. In fact, it is not unusual for the clock to 'drift' several seconds each day. Over the course of weeks or months this error can add up resulting in a clock that is several minutes fast or slow. On a PDA - a device designed to keep track of your schedule and remind you of important events - an inaccurate clock is a bad thing.

Servers and desktop PCs solve this problem by periodically connecting to a time server on the local network and synchronizing their clock. But for a PDA, relying on time server synchronization may not be practical.

Drifter solves that problem by determining the amount of error in the system clock. Drifter then automatically adjusts the system clock at the exact intervals required to compensate for the error.
