4:50 ... or might have been 4:49. I click slowly.
My explanation should have been more clear. In the BIOS
on Joule the clock is set to within a minute of UTC.
peter@dalton:~$ telnet joule
Trying 10.4.0.1... [don't worry; it's an encrypted tunnel]
peter@joule:~$ date --iso-8601=minutes
peter@joule:~$ exitConnection closed by foreign host.
peter@dalton:~$ date --iso-8601=minutes
Dalton is showing the correct time within a minute. joule:~$ date
is lagging approximately 10 (13:51-03:39) hours. Seems advisable
to set UTC in the BIOS of Joule, set the correct time in the Joule
Linux clock with date, check the LXDE time display and forget

Will keep that in mind in case the LXDE display is wrong after the

Yes but if the displayed time is off by +/- 12:00 hours the
distinction between an error in clock time and an error in
format is not immediate. If the error is other than +/- 12:00,
there could be a "display format error" on top of a time error.
