Please be very careful.  Make sure you have permission
to use the web server, and make sure that your software
doesn't get distributed to people who don't understand
how to drive it.

  Tardis is a nice piece of software for synchronising the
  time on Windows PCs to Internet time servers. Unfortunately,
  due to an combination of circumstances, Tardis users of the
  world using the HTTP mode are mounting an unintended attack
  on our web server.

These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's.  I hate spam.
