    you know, i've never really paid attention and timed my clock. does it eventually correct itself, or do you sync to a time server?

    there's another thread on this exact phenomena (was it a coding issue?) it is recent too....

    I wondered about the old leap second - but they are pretty rare...

    Bet it does not happen with a Linux clock anyway!

    may I suggest you don't ask the guys? If you seriously want to know why not post on the December sigs/avatars thread? I do not really have an opinion on this one....

    i googled it and it appears that it's an animation glitch. the actual time is accurate - just the animation is off a little.

    it appears in almost all versions of windows. ;)

    I started a thread, then realized you made the same post a while ago, so I added the responses to my post on to your thread.

    or...I messed up, and fixed it
