Restart (in the Services manager) is handy when you have just changed the 
config file and want to do a stop and an immediate start....

With Internet servers on Windows I would expect around 100ms accuracy - 
perhaps better.  That's an order of magnitude figure, though.

Glad you like TinyBen - I haven't measured it but I would hope that the 
hands change within about 100ms of the computer clock changing.
