Question asked by VRFuser on Aug 6, 2007
A USB -GPS mouse do cost around 100 Dollar maximum, and VEE software for this is available. So this is a good idea to get the time. Your problem then is - that  you have to have a GPS signal - and is this available in your insdustry environment , perhaps in a Hall ?

On the PC SW side, I do not like to change the PC's clock
in order to extend the license because this illegal walkaround
may cause some disadvantages for me.
