time-warp (noun) A hypothetical discontinuity or distortion occurring in the flow of time that would move events from one time interval to another or suspend the passage of time. The TimeWarp utility sets your computer's time for your time zone from a master atomic clock using a modem. Timing messages from either the United States Naval Observatory (USNO) or the National Institute of Science and Technology may be used. It gives you the capability to set your computer's clock to official US date and time in your time zone. It requires MS-DOS and a telephone modem on an IBM-PC compatible.
