NTP

To make sure your machine’s time is up to date all the time, install ntp (apt-get install ntp, or do it how your machine does it), and then add to /etc/ntp.conf:
server uk.pool.ntp.org
server uk.pool.ntp.org
server uk.pool.ntp.org
Yes, that’s the same line three times. See the usage instructions for why. Thanks to Peter Oliver for explaining this to me.


I'm currently available for hire, to help you plan, architect, and build new systems, and for technical writing and articles. You can take a look at some projects I've worked on and some of my writing. If you'd like to talk about your upcoming project, do get in touch.
