    What's involved? We use NTP quite a lot, especially for the Linux boxes
    (RH5 systems tend to drift a *lot* for some strange reason... it's not their
    kernel, as I see it on my home system which runs a custom configure from
    stock kernel source), and ECE is currently providing two publicly-accessible
    NTP servers; if nobody with more free time steps forward I'll *have* to
    address it, if only for our use.
