If you really want to know what time it is, this is a good place to start - a Tempus LX NTP stratum-one timeserver. Accurate to one ten-millionth of a second, can serve 200,000 computers at once, runs about $7,000.
For the rest of the world
Head over to time.gov in your web browser, or consider any number of radio-set watches. Less accurate, but under a second and less than $50 these days.
Status and plans
- Got the timeserver
- Right now, I have to do visual comparisons. Maybe OCR?
