I try and write my scripts so that they work even if the PC is a few 
minutes off (for those scripts which run every 30 minutes), and I allow up 
to an hour error for those which run daily (so that changing to and from 
summer-time doesn't affect them).  Thankfully, with NTP, I have never been 
that far off.
