If the workstation clock is out of sync, then you're out of luck.
Even if the clock is in sync, you can specify at jobs with minute 
precision - so if you intended to run a script, it may wait a minute for 
the task, and if you're unlucky, you'll wait 24 hours for it to complete 
(if you only give time (HH:MM) to at, and you're "late" a few secs, 
it'll be executed the next day.
