Yep, unfortunately my home box has a dickie battery and so doesn't keep the
time well when it's switched off. I update the time when I notice it's
significantly out (which probably isn't often enough).

BTW, can anyone confirm if the server time.iinet.net.au responds to rdate
requests these days? I compiled the source to Debian rdate on my Slackware
box but never got a response from that server..
