Indeed, including Windows (just don't use Microsoft's built-in
version, which is simplified, if you want the features I
described in my previous post).

However, this doesn't work, at least for Erlang systems running
uninterruptedly, if the Erlang runtime only gets the system time
at start-up...

So I am interested in hearing more about that.
