how does jesse set the time on his palm pilot?

i used to use ntp, but i dont have a modem anymore, but i am still obsesed with having accurate time. My current solution is to put a radio of 5, 10, or 15mhz, whichever is coming in best, and listen for the time on there, the go into prefernce on my palm, and uder general, set the time by clicking on it, and pressing ok right as the radio beeps, i get 1 second accuracy. my palm Vx gaims about 45 seconds per month.

Pilot Install, as seen at has the ability to sync your Palm's time with whatever time in on the PC. If you keep your PC in sync, this will do a good job of updating your device.
