Yes, but does '' or '' or.... you get the idea
actually *work* in The Real World?

I am *NOT* looking for a list of "what I use" or similar - the question is
a resource location problem.  For a piece of shareware that could be on *any*
machine in the Internet, is it worth trying 'ntp.<my-isp-here>.com', or similar?

I've heard back from a guy at Exodus (thanks!! ;) regarding their scheme.

Yes, I know many domains have a 'clock' or 'time' or 'clepsydra' or similar.

Maybe what's NEEDED here is a DHCP option.. that would help. ;)
