And which time standard are you using to judge this?

You will be surprised to know that time zones are all synced to the same minute, so its out for everyone by 2 mins. Changing to EST isn't going to help me. I could move 10 miles east, but that would only alter the local time by 2 minutes. Not GMT.

No it isn't. The server runs NTP, a highly accurate system for synchronising clocks, and synchronises with two servers in California, one in the UK, and one in Australia. Its clock is currently within 5 milliseconds of every one of those servers (see the offset column):

Code: [Select]
# ntpq -pn
     remote           refid      st t when poll reach   delay   offset  jitter

Maybe your system clock is two minutes behind?
when you try to mock anyone while also running the flat earth society. Lol
