• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

A bit of a stretch for clock news - but a bit of a historical tidbit,

Stewart Prestley Blake, known as Pres (pronounced “press”), was born Nov. 26, 1914, in Jersey City, N.J., and grew up in Springfield. His father was vice president for sales at Standard Electric Time Co., a maker of clocks and fire alarms. His mother was a schoolteacher.
