Comment: Universal skew reference? Nope. (Score 1) 470 470

If each computer has unique skew how are they going to establish a common time reference standard? You can't have one phisycal machine sniff the whole net. Having a few however, would mean that the skew they measure is based on their perception of time, which is (as per definition) uniquely skewed. Now, if they can sync many machines completely, then we can basically do the same.
