Thank you Jimmy. Well done. I am a bit of a novice here and would never have worked out how to achieve the fix. I did not realise that such files were held on our own systems rather than on the WT server.
Thanks again . . . Rod

At risk of breaching netiquette by responding to my own post, I wrote: "Now all we have to do is figure out how to get it out of the server list?".

This worked: with Notepad, open wtservers.wtd in your World Time folder.
Delete the line containing "clock.nc.fukuoka-u.ac.jp" (no quotes) and save the file. WT wonīt check the time against this inaccurate server again.

Leave the "over 45 minutes" box checked, in case there my be other grossly inaccurate servers in the list.

It sounds to me like that server has a problem - Iīd suggest removing it from your list.

Itīs for precisely this reason that the more then 45min warning is there - donīt click "Yes" when itīs obvious that the time will be set incorrectly by the time server.

Thanks, Rod, I had set the 45-minute warning, too, and did what you did, with the same result, happily, so itīs still 2007 :-).
I guess it had to be the time server in Japan?
Now all we have to do is figure out how to get it out of the server list?

This is happening to me also. When I do a synch, it stops at the Fukuoka clock and tells me the time will change by more than 45 minutes, do I wish to continue? īYesī takes me to 2083, īNoī continues cycling thru the clocks and correctly completes the synchronisation.
