NIST still offers a dial-up service that will give you the current time.

@Famicoman There's also multiple radio stations that do the same. They've been in service for decades, and the voice speaking the time is likely long dead.

@Famicoman I think even the latest NTPd still supports time sync over the phone. Will be cool to set it up.

@Famicoman Makes me wish I had a 56k modem to fire up and call in with.

@Famicoman First, well done. I hadn't even thought about dialing into NIST in ages.
Second, bonus style points for using a Wyse terminal and an actual Hayes modem.
