"some Web site" is likely mine, at least for the second script!


You can run the Perl scripts interactively to verify that the output is 
correct.  On Windows, you would run:

  perl ntpstat.pl

  perl GetNTP3000usec.pl godzilla

Both graphs suggest you could do a lot better, and I would be interested 
to hear your answers to Chris's questions.  I suggest updating to a more 
recent NTP as well, as it did virtually eliminate the "badformat" errors I 
was seeing from:

  ntpq "-c cv &2" <server>
