What I’m doing is substantially the same. I’m using ntpdate or something, but still substantially the same.

And yeah. Talk about bad clock…

From an “obtw” standpoint, deunderclocking takes no time and it actually provides some pretty reasonable benefit. I run two slugs — on de-underclocked running debonaras (debian everywhere!) and the other running unslung underclocked (as a slow testbed).

I can definitely tell the deunderclocked one. And not just because it’s running a sweet distro. 🙂
