So for a while there I was getting really confused. I kept getting the output from daily cronjobs on Chevette mailed to me in the afternoon but with a timestamp of the middle of the night. Lo and behold, Chevette's clock was just plain wrong.
So naturally, I needed to get me some of that NTP that the kids keep talking about. It turns out the folks over at http://www.pool.ntp.org/ are trying to organize a large number of NTP servers from volunteers. It's a really cool project and worth taking a look at since they discuss specific usage issues and how to best configure your client to update time from the 'net.
So initially I setup NTP on chevette and then I realized that neither siona nor friday were synching time so I did those too. After a little bit of reading on the above website as well as the ISC's site, I ended up deciding to try to run my own NTP server on the LAN. Okay, not really exciting, but overall, the setup is really easy and definately cool. Siona updates against the ca.pool.ntp.org servers and then chevette and friday both update against her. Kinda neet to have that working finally :D
Okay, back to work and my ever-growing TODO list.
