    Daniel: did you use your laptop as a time reference?
    
    Please be advised: that is not going to work! Even with internet time 
    synchronization, the clock is not accurate enough. The indicated times are 
    unstable and depend a.o. on what processes are running on the computer! They can 
    be off considerably.
