Hi all,

I'm going back to this subject from February 2017! Two years already....
To inform you that I have made a small update of NetTime. You will again find the Automatic Synchronization option (which had disappeared) allowing your Newton to synchronize its clock with that of the TP servers, as soon as an Internet connection is opened. This option has also become deactivatable again. 
I also took the opportunity to make a localized version in French (you might as well enjoy yourself!) 
You can find these new versions and sources (NTK Mac) of NetTime on the page of a small article I made for the occasion, at this address:

And a short video to quickly explain the joint use of Daylight Saving and NetTime:

For memory, Jake Bordens, had modified the code in 2017 to make NetTime compatible with Newtons with the Y2010 patch.

For those who do not wish to read the article, here is the direct link to the new version of the NetTime.pkg:
(As usual, excuse me in advance for my poor English)

>>> I just have a question/suggestion, this Auto-Sync would be made to it frequency? 
>>> It might be good to put in addition a picker with several choices (1H, 6H, 12H, 24H, 1D, 1W, 1M). What do

>> Auto-sync is the default behavior of the app. It syncs automatically whenever a network connection is started.
>> I added the “sync now button” which allows you to force a sync for the first time or on demand.
>> The checkbox lets you disable the auto sync behavior, making it completely manual.
