Getting the Precise Time

With daylight savings time coming into effect this weekend, I thought I would post two websites about getting the exact time.  This website will give you the precise time in every U.S. time zone.  This website, on the other hand, will give you a more visually attractive clock, but won't show you the time in the U.S.  It will show you Coordinated Universal Time (a/k/a Greenwich Mean Time), which is either five or four hours ahead of Eastern Time in the U.S., depending on whether you are on standard or daylight savings time.
Of course, if your computer is running Windows XP or above, or Mac OS X.4.x (Tiger) (and maybe even an earlier version of OS X, I'm not sure) or above, your computer is synced with a time server as well, so you can use your computer to set the exact time.
