Ivan, we do run our own NTP server which all of our computers are sync'ed
to, then our NTP server is synced from tick.uh.edu. I have triple checked
all times and they are all correct.

I didn't feel the popup was a warning because I couldn't enter our Venue
Server at all. Each time I'd try to connect I'd get that same popup.
