BTW ... I don't think I've needed to do that "net time" or even that
w32tm to set time on a Windows clients since ..*maybe*  .. the days of
Win NT 4.0. With a working AD  [...]

That stuff was from me, and I don't run any AD. I probably should have been more clear about my environment. I have Windows for $WORK only, but all data and most activity is on Linux, shared via Samba workgroup. There may be a better way to sync time for the 2 Windows machines, but since what I have has worked for me since forever I see no need to change it. Certainly AD would be massive overkill and pain.

Anyway, glad Art figured it out.

"Microsoft Tax" = the additional hardware & yearly fees for the add-on
software required to protect Windows from its own poorly designed and
implemented self, while the overhead incidentally flattens Moore's Law.
