TimeFairy-A New Generation of
Network Time Synchronizer by the National Time Service Center
The National Time Service Center officially launched
on 1 May a new generation of network time synchronizer software-TimeFairy
that it developed on "http://www.time.ac.cn". The new network
time synchronizer is more user-friendly than the former ones, and is widely
adaptable and compatible with different operating systems and network
environment. It does not require the user to download and install the
software. Once you are connected with the internet, all you need to do
is to click on the "Time Synchronizing" icon on the "http://www.time.ac.cn"
front page, and the time on your computer will be synchronized, no matter
whether you are using Windows98 or Window XP, or whether you have to pass
a proxy server or the virus fire wall.
China's Web of Knowledge
On 12 May a conference introducing "ScienceChina-the
Chinese Science Documentation Service System" was held at the CAS
Documentation and Information Center. It took more than two years for
the CAS Documentation and Information Center, in cooperation with a number
of CAS institutions and on the basis of the Chinese Science Quotation
Database and the Chinese Science Documentation Databank, to build ScienceChina
(http://sciencechina.cn), one of the key projects in building China's
National Digital Library on Science. It has now started to serve the users
in the research institutes.
