How different is "different"  ??

If it's just a few minutes, then this is no cause for alarm.  I find that my notebook clock sometimes runs slow, as if other tasks are blocking it, so I just adjust it now and then. It could be that the clock on your other computer has a higher processing priority.

On the other hand, there was a time (beginning of the year ??) when the RootsChat clock was definitely wrong, compared to the atomic clock here in Frankfurt.  Most industrial computers are connected to such a clock, but maybe the RootsChat servers are not.

Hello! Thanks for your replies. When I mean different I mean about 9 hours difference LOL.
My main pc is fine, showing the correct time in the bottom right hand corner as well as the correct time when someone enters or leaves the chatroom.
My laptop however, seems to think it is in a different time zone. The bottom right hand corner shows the correct time, BUT the chatroom shows a completely different time when people come in or go out!!!
I dont know why this is the case and need help LOL  ;D
