3. How is the time we see on our computers generated? Where does it come from?

Our computers us Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).  This is similar, but not exactly the same as Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) however the variation is no more than .9 seconds.  (Apparently leap seconds are used frequently to adjust the time)

The calculation used in our computers is:

UTC + TIME ZONE + DST

An example:

16:49:32 + (-09:00) + 1 = 08:49:32  (Local Time)
