[sarex] Windows XP time sync

In getting ready for the two ARISS contacts this morning, I noticed the two
of my Windows XP computers showed time about one minute different between
the two computers. When I tried to synchronize time by going to
settings/control panel/date and time/internet time and do "Update Now", it
failed with both of the time servers given there.
I put in the time server: time-A.timefreq.bldrdoc.gov (letter L in small
in bldrdoc) and it worked. Now these two computers have the same and
correct time again.
I thought you may want to know, for accurate ISS tracking purposes,
especially during ARISS events.
