I remember I was impressed a long time ago, when I did some work with
the BBC, because the clock signal they had coming out of the wall in
every room came from their atomic clock.

Years later in a telecom switchroom I was shown five clocks. The first
four were GPS clocks. Only if all of those failed did they refer to the
atomic clock. So I guess they agreed with you! And they had the
advantage of being in a fixed location :)

Cheers, Dave

PS Have you got any further with the boot clock problem?
