    I've noticed that the time on the board is about 4 to 8 minutes of from the actual time. Is there any way this can be fixed?

    I just ran this command

    Code:
    ntpdate time.windows.com
    and it fixed the offset.
    wasnt too hard, but i hadn't noticed before!


    edit: lol funny as the post above was posted before mine, but the time of the message says it was posted after now with the board time back to normal [​IMG]
