Dimension 4 lets you network time synchronize your PCs clock for Windows systems

Thinking Man Software - Dimension 4 v5.0

Why should I care?

How many clocks do you have in your home or office? 5? 10? 15? 20? Undoubtedly, if you're like most people, you have a bunch. But, the real question is ... How accurate are they?

Everyone should have at least one clock that they can rely on. Why not have that clock be the clock on the PC you're using right now? If you have 5 minutes to spare, download Dimension 4 (right now) and make your PC's clock the most accurate clock in your possession.

Why Dimension 4?

Simply put, Dimension 4 v5.0 is the fastest and easiest way to synchronize your PC's clock for Windows-based operating systems. Once Dimension 4 is installed, you'll most likely forget that it's even running. It's that automatic.

Dimension 4 will monitor your Internet connection and automatically adjust your PC's clock when you're online at an interval you specify.

How's Dimension 4 work?

Dimension 4 uses one of a few well known and broadly implemented internet protocols to connect with publicly available time servers that have been operating on the Internet for over 15 years. These time servers typically have their very own atomic clocks, or are directly connected to other machines that do.

At an interval you specify, Dimension 4 connects to a time server that you choose from an exhaustive list of time servers. The time server then sends the correct time back to your computer, where Dimension 4 uses sophisticated algorithms to correctly adjust your PC's clock to with-in a few milliseconds of the real time.
