Thankfully, I don't have to re-set the clock enough to remember the commands as well. I like this idea.

Related question: I can't tease out of the manual where the accuracy factor is stored on the 41. If it is stored on the time module, then it is likely lost when the clock does a self reset, correct? If it is stored in continuous memory then RCLAF in a "clock restore" program would restore the accuracy factor in addition to SETIME, SETDATE and other display preferences.

Good point. I didn't even think of that, because I've had the good luck that the clock in my particular cx is extremely accurate without using the accuracy factor. When the time changes to and from daylight-savings time twice a year, I just add or subtract an hour and don't have to change the minutes. (Lots of HP-41 links at the bottom of the links page, )
