Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Well, the problem is while the pc is running, the clock would just catch up pace and will just readjust itself to a time few minutes past the actual time e.g. if current time is 1500h, then it will read 1506h

    i have done that already, but still a day later the same problem returns and you will find a time deviation from the actual clock. So is that related to the Bios battery

    you might try to set at normal hrs not military hrs a few times first before removing/replacing battery how old is the computer?

  • sheroo_alsay Jan 03, 2011

    if u mean by military hours, the 24 hours system, then the computer is already set on the AM/PM. Computer is running for 24 hrs for about 2 years now

    Hi if the computer has been running 24hrs 4 2hrs replacing the bios battery might fix the problem but it should automatically adjust itself to your time settings anyway so i cant say for sure thats the proplem did you try to set it for 24hrs then back to am/fm a few times this might kick the computer to memorize it

Having major trouble setting it after D.S.T. Could you help? The "it" is a Universal TechTronics U.S. Perfect Time clock.

... I'm not familliar with your particular clock, but, I'm assuming you may have a;
BATTery operated, wall-hanging, 'self-syncronizing' clock with 'hands' on it.
These are often marketed as 'Atomic' Clocks that 'keep perfect time - all the time'.
Generally these work by 'accuratizing' the Minute-hand as it approaches the 'top-of-the-hour' position (e.g. the 60th. or the zero- minute marker at '12'. They often achieve this by either 'double-Clocking' or 'half-clocking' (doublespeed or halfspeeding) the electric pulse that makes the 'SECONDs' hand advance to it's next mark. These 'SynCHRONO-ize' to a low-frequency Amplitude-Modulated (AM) radio-wave signal, (perhaps near 430Khz?) emminating from a source near "The Atomic Clock" out in Colorado (I believe).

One that I used to have hanging had recommended something like the following:

-manually adjust the time (via the small grey wheel near the BATTery, but set it about 7 to 12 minutes 'early' or before the actual correct time, (preferably at about 10 min. before an Hour).
-then remove the one " double A" . . .
... battery (for about 30sec.) and reinstall battery.
-then hang it up, and watch for the second-hand to do its 'Double-clocking' (for part of it's revolutions ) as the Minute-hand apprpaches th '12'. {note; it may take ~2 or 3 hour-cycles for the minute-hand 'to catch-up on all it's "Lost" minutes}.
(then, hopefully, your model will stay 'synchonized' there, for that 'Hour's' setting, and accept It (DST Hour value) with accuratizing Minutes. (and not go crazey over the next few days trying to get back to "Real TIME"). /mm

How do I adjust the clock when it's running slow?


If your cuckoo runs too fast or slow, the best way to correct this problem is to set your cuckoo to an accurate watch or clock. After 24 hours, record how many minutes your cuckoo is running too fast or slow. Then adjust the bob up or down the pendulum stick to change the pendulms effective length. You'll need to take an educated guess as to the distance. Reset the cuckoo minute hand time to your watch or clock again. Repeat this process every 24 hours, recording the results, and readjusting the bob until you are within 3 minutes of the correct time. Then, switch from recording every day to recording every week. Use the same process described, recording the time difference, adjusting the bob up or down every week, until the cuckoo is accurate within approximately 3 minutes per week. Remember, mechanical cuckoo clocks are not as accurate as quartz or electric clocks! A three minute error per week is not bad. Maybe you can do better. What you are attempting to do is to obtain is the best timekeeping possible from your cuckoo clock. Afterwards, you will still need to sychronize the cuckoo (coo coo) clock minute hand to an accurate clock or watch, each week or as desired.

Radio controlled Barolo Clock with hands keeps resetting an hour behind.


It sounds like it is receiving a DST signal instead of an MSF signal or vice versa depending on your country, they are one hour apart.
Unless this clock has a choice of signal settings the best way is to gently remove and reset the hour hand to the correct hour.

How do I set the Chimes on the Ergo Westminster Clock


The controls on the back of the Ergo brand Wall Chime Clock are different than that of the Seiko. I'm not sure who makes the movement - probably Chinese or Asian. Anyway, always take the pendulum off the hook before moving the clock about as it can damage the mechanism. On the back, there is a dial for adjusting the time setting of the clock hands, which is awkward to use, but does work, easiest to leave it alone and use the minute hand, NEVER the hour hand. There is a dial for volume. There is a switch for type of chime - Westminster or Wittington. There is the night-time shut off or volume reduction. Some models have a switch for chiming every quarter hour. My advice is make sure you have fresh batteries, and set the switches on the back for the settings you want. Hang the clock, grasp the pendulum arm and re-hang the pendulum, making sure it's hooked in properly. Now, whatever the hands say the time is, ignore it for now, and gently move the minute hand backwards, slowly, to about 5 minutes before the top of the hour, then forwards to a couple of minutes past the top of the hour. This will cause the chimes to start. Let the melody play, then listen for how many "clangs" you get. That will tell you what the clock thinks the time is. For example, if it "dongs" 5 times, and you've set it to run silent at night, the clock thinks it's 5 p.m. If it's actually only 3:15 p.m., then gently run the minute hand backwards til the hands indicate about 10 minutes behind the correct time (it'll take you several minutes to complete the process) then gently move the minute hand back to about 5 minutes before the top of the hour, then forward to a few minutes past, and the chime will start to play the melody. If you let it, it will play out the full melody, then it will "clang" one more time than your previous test. Each time you move the minute hand back to 5 minutes before the hour, it advances the chimes by one hour. Here's a tip - you don't have to let the melody and "clangs" play fully, each time, once you know how it works. If you have it set to run silent at night (pre-programmed to silence after 10 p.m. to 6 p.m.), keep moving the minute hand back to 5 minutes before the hour, keeping track of how many times you've done it until you reach 10 p.m., or not, until you get to the point where you move the minute hand back and there's silence. At that point, the auto-silence mechanism is active, and the clock thinks it 11 p.m. So, from that point, keep repeating the process of gently moving the minute hand back and forth, from about 5 minutes to the hour, to a few minutes past, keeping track of how many times you've done it. After 8 sequences, you hear it start to chime again, at 6 a.m. So, at that point, go through the back-up and advancing of the minute hand sequence 9 more times, and on the 9th time, let the melody play, and let in "clang" to determine that you're indeed at 3 p.m., which you should be. Then simply gently advance the minute hand to the correct time, 3:10, 3:12, whatever, and you're done. You'll know for certain soon enough.

How does the e3200treadmill fat calories work with the regular calories burnt.


Add incline. Instead of keeping the treadmill on a flat surface, maintain an incline as you walk, jog or run. This will serve to replicate the wind resistance and terrain variation that you encounter when you run outdoors. Keep an incline of at least 1.5 percent on your treadmill throughout your workout.

  • 2 Increase your speed. If you run at the same speed every time you workout, your body will not be challenged and you may reach a fitness plateau. Up your speed by a quarter-mile per hour every few weeks.
  • 3 Vary your workout time. In order to challenge your body in different ways, variety is key. If you run for half an hour three times a week, opt for a one-hour run for your fourth workout. This will help to condition your body for endurance training, resulting in more calories burned.
  • 4 Use intervals. Interval training can dramatically increase your calorie burn in an average workout. Instead of running at a steady pace for your entire workout, mix in sprints. Jog at a steady pace for two minutes, and then increase your speed to a full sprint for 30 seconds. Return to the steady pace to recover. Your heart rate will rise on your intense sprint intervals and stabilize on your longer recovery periods.
  • 5 Incorporate incline into your interval training. You can use incline in the same manner that you would speed to interval train. Walk or jog at a 5 percent incline for two minutes. Increase the incline to 10 percent for two minutes and then to the 15 percent maximum for one minute. Decrease the incline back to 10 percent for two minutes and finally back to 5 percent for two minutes. Repeat this same pyramid interval a few times.
  • 6 Wear a heart rate monitor. This will monitor how hard you are actually working as well as how many calories you burn in each workout. You can then adjust your speed and incline accordingly to maximize your calorie burn.
  • 7 Drink plenty of water before, during and after your treadmill workout. If you are dehydrated, you won't perform as well as you can. You'll work harder and burn more calories if you're hydrated

    I have noticed a few times that my f3 life fitness treadmill changes pace on me, and so does the incline. i can see it on the monitor, also it has started feeling like the belt is catching or something, or...


    It might just need a simple adjustment of the running belt that can eliminate the slipping refer to you owner's manual for the procedure. It will be close to all treadmill adjustments.
    Here is a generic procedure for adjusting the belt:
    If the walking belt slips when walked on. Run the treadmill @ 3 to 4 mph, walk for a few minutes, Using the allen wrench, turn both rear roller adjustment bolts clockwise, 1/4 of a turn. Then repeat adjusting procedure until walking belt is properly tightened.

    Distances are WAY wrong.


    hi

    before you start running make sure you take the unit outside into the clear for a few minutes, dont just start running from inside a building or a new location

    erase the track log if you can so that the data is only resuts from the current run

    make sure you check the signal for the next few runs

    (also run a few extra for me)
