Re: "dmesg -T" date doesn't match "date" output

On Sunday 2018-10-28 07:19 +0700, Robert Elz output:
:  | The dmesg time matches what appears in kern.boottime but I don't see a 5-6
:  | second step in rc.log when ntpdate is run.
:You wouldn't now.  The system from which you showed that output has
:been up for a month.   During that month, either in one jump, or more
:likely, continuously, I suspect that the time has been slowed from what
:your system clock source would have generated, to match NTP time.
:So, while there has been a month and 13 seconds of clock ticks, the
:actual time has actually advanced just a month and 7 seconds.
:Or that is what I'd assume - but I'm no expert on NetBSD timekeeping.

Ah, I just rebooted it so that's 1 min and 13 seconds,
not 1 month and 13 seconds.
