I have just gotten the control panel Network Time, which contacts time servers and replies you with the correct time. What are some good Canadian Network Time servers I could use?

The best servers to use are local universities, or your ISP.  Give them a call and inquire as to whether they are running a time daemon.  (Try my university: undergrad.math.uwaterloo.ca, or calum.csclub.uwaterloo.ca)  Otherwise, try some prominent businesses, like apple.ca or microsoft.ca.

If you are in an area to which 416 is a local call, then why not use the programme SetClock?  It uses your modem to dial up to the nuclear time clock.  Talk about being on time!  (It's also free...)  Find SetClock at www.shareware.com.  You may wish to use this even from long distance, as the whole call takes less than 30 seconds.  It is much more accurate than NetworkTime.

I hope I answered your questions...
