Hi Martin, long time no see ;-)..
I'm assuming you mean NTP. I would suggest adjusting the time inside the
kernel since there is no standard device for a time source (or at least I've
never seen one anywhere). Cost seems to be low since this isn't an event that
happens terribly often. If you want to do anything that time anywhere else,
you will have to run xntpd anyway, however, that's an unneccessary overhead

Well, the docs that come with xntpd aren't bad for one thing. Also, how
about treating your machine to another 4MB? Come on, Valentine's Day was just
last week and maybe all it needs is just a sign of affection ;-).
