Setting House Clocks after Power Outage
Authored by: Mac Berry on May 05, '11 04:53:32AM

In the olden days (the 70's), when you got a new watch, didn't you phone up the speaking clock to get an accurate time check to set it by? This hint gives you that, without the cost of phoning the speaking clock.

There are other ways to do it of course, such as use your mobile's (synced?) clock, or your watch, or whatever, but this hint seems to me to be a good way to get an accurate time check that allows you to set clocks that have no internet connection.
