Default TBM time ahead a few minutes?

Noticed last night that posts seemed to be appearing about 5 minutes into the future from my iPad time. Will test with this post, as I've checked my iPad, and it seems about 1minute ahead of actual.

Hey Catbird, how'd you make a post at 1:57 when it is only 1:54 now?

Do you have a time machine?

I thought the gravity of my posting was warping space/time. Still think it might be.

A hem.

That little episode was highly unhelpful. Especially since my kitchen clock was 10 minutes behind. Damn batteries.

Clocks drive me nuts, and MUST be synced in my house. I lived with my grandmother as a high school and college student. About 5 different clocks in the house with a 20 minute spread...on PURPOSE! I would have to remember which clock was off by how much, and calculate the true time. I do believe that was the trigger for my mental illness.
