Grabbing the Date and Time From a Time Server on the Internet

Taking another kick at the cat here. I’d like to use something like
get url (http://[time server address])
to grab the current date and time from an official time server. This would be used in a LiveCode standalone distributed to collaborators and grad students who would use it to export time-sensitive data. I want the data to be date- and time-stamped, and I cannot count on their computer clocks being accurate.
I suppose an alternative would be to get the creation date and time of the file once it is received via FTP (or better still, SFTP) use the the server date and time as the standard.
