So today we had to move our clocks forward 1 hour (at 2am). Just realised that our Ubuntu box (
zeus) was not displaying the right time to begin with (prior to the change). So to keep your computer clock in time with the world, use ntp.
sudo ntpdate [timeserver]
|South Australia||ntp.ade.connect.com.au||stratum three|
|Western Australia||ntp.per.connect.com.au||stratum three|
driftfile /var/lib/ntp/ntp.drift server ntp.mel.connect.com.au
So how far off was
