Not "ready", as far as I know, but in principle it can be done as Windows
allows you to set the number of timer ticks required between each timer
interrupt to, IIRC, a precision of about 1 part in 150,000 (about a second
a day). So to catch up just set that value to about 100 less than it is
now, and catch up in a small number of days, smoothly, without any steps.
[Please check my sums!]
A "two line" program should do the job....you may even be able to do it
from the command-line with VB Script.
