    It may be important if you need to prove what you were doing at a certain time of the day. :eek:

    Lot of us are IT people. IT people tend to want system clocks to show the correct time. In important systems, it can cause problems if you are off by 15 minutes. So, I'm going with "professionalism" as the reason people are asking about it.

    Really fixed?

    ETA: was off by a minute for me.

    But seriously to have a computer connected to the Internet not have the correct time in 2014 is pretty surprising. (and embarrassing for the sysadmin.)

    ETAA: Looks like it's off by a few seconds. No biggy. I'm happy.
