Forum clock 11 minutes slow? Weird and slightly annoying.

I've noticed for a while that the forum clock seems to be about 11 minutes behind my clocks (radios, cell phones, laptops, etc.). Anyone else experience this? What's causing it? Can it be fixed?

How many cell phones do you own? Sheesh.

Two hours and twelve minutes slow compared to CST. I hope you are not planning a hit or a robbery that you need an alibi for where you were and what you were doing at said time.

AARRRRGGGGHHHHH. It is 13 minutes slow. From a relativistic perspective, time for us is going faster than for the PP computers. That must mean that we are moving at a slower speed. Since my time is 13 minutes behind PP computers, I must be going slowest. I guess that makes sense since I own a 220d. Your 11 minutes means that you are going slightly faster than I am. What does this all mean? I am not sure I can sleep tonight.

As a double test, as I hit submit, the us official time is 8:32 PM. Let's see if I have sped up or slowed down.

Okay still 13 minutes. Whew. I was worried that the universe was imploding and we were the only ones who had figured it out.

Okay, 13 minutes on the west coast, 12 minutes in Indiana, and 11 minutes in Massachusetts. Keep that data coming, people. That must mean that the only place where PP computers are correct is Kazakhstan. Hmm, what could it all mean?

Uh oh. That seems to challenge ShortsGuy's theory.

Some people are saying they can't post up pictures - not sure if that's still a problem.
