Heh heh heh. You said "Dongle".

I have one of those security keys that display a series of numbers that changes every n seconds. I use it whenever I log into work. The work server knows what numbers are on the key at any point, and can thus verify that the key is in my possession, adding to the security.

My question is this - how long will the key and the server stay in synch for? Without anything to resynch them, surely there'll be at least a second in slippage each month?
