Default Forum clock incorrect?

I have my time zone set properly, but it seems the clock here is always 6 or 7 minutes fast according to both the windows time server and the official US time here:
http://www.time.gov/index.html

Would it be a problem to adjust this? Its not THAT important but it can be sort of anoying to have the forum time so far off.

EDIT: I really posted this at 5:17, not 5:23

So, maybe the forum clock just lags behind for some people? Thats still really strange. If my system clock is timed perfectly with the official US time, and the time on here is 6 minutes off... then something isnt right

EDIT: OK, NOW its correct... what the hell is going on?

Maybe it re-synchronizes at some point during the early morning. I'm guessing at 6 AM since K007 said it was 3 minutes off and grey_1 posted right before 6 and it was correct.

Looks like the time was "overclocked"

Problem is it is now 7-8 minutes fast. Clock chip gone bad? (reasons NTP is often used...)

Yeah, the time is still off. It's telling me it's 2:23 AM but it is actually 2:14. Weird stuff.
