Thanks for that - it helps put the values in context.

By the way: do check your motherboards - many still have the 10-pin 
serial port header even if there's no COM port on the back.  This was 
still true on a PC bought a few weeks ago (admittedly, using a Gigabyte 
board and not a Compaq/Dell/HP one).  I was able to fit a COM port 
adapter and have NTP working nicely under Windows-8.
