    Thumbs down Sorry guys, my computer clock was set wrong.

    It was all due to the fact that Windows 8 sets the BIOS to Real Time and Ubuntu sets the BIOS to UTC! I did NOT even notice that I had NOT reset the Time after booting back into Windows 8 again!

    If you need it '/etc/default/rcS' is where that setting is kept.

    'gksudo some-text-editor /etc/default/rcS' or 'kdesudo some-text-editor /etc/default/rcS'

    some-text-editor being gedit, kate, vim, nano, etc...

    change 'UTC=yes' to 'UTC=no'.

    Thanks, but now that I figured out that my Ubuntu Nightly Build Crashing Problem was due to my Second Monitor being Plugged In, I won't need to return to Windows 8 until Next Month's Security Updates are Available on the Second Tuesday of the Month, and/or when I do my Taxes on HRBlock.com (which still says Ubuntu is an Unsupported Operating System).

    No I have not tried that Add-on that you mentioned, and even if I did try it, I still need Apple ITunes in Windows 8 to Update my Sprint Wireless Apple IPhone 5 to the IOS Beta Builds I get from the Apple Developer Program (Also known as ADC).
