Retrieving Date and Time From a Remote Computer

Hi Bob,

No, just my office Mac a few kilometres away.  I was thinking of other ways of not relying on the date and time settings of users who would FTP data to me.  If my client app can grab the date and time from my office make, then I have a consistent timestamp that I can rely on.
