The subject says it all.
Where I work (an academic hospital in the netherlands), we have 4
Now I would like to introduce a fith timeserver but that one with a DCF77-
receiver connected to it so that we've always a real good notion of time.
I would say that is very important but I really can't give any good reasons
for that. Very unfortunate.
So my question is: why should we?
