Re: NTP secure

Actually many ISP's include ntp service; look for a host named "time"
or "provider" in their .net domain, possibly after doing a traceroute
and trying the nearest router or two first (since many routers support
serving "broadcast" ntp, for the use of configuration-free clients.)

The "insane-clock" stuff is quite useful; one thing to watch out for
instead is that you don't peer with *inside* machines if you are
concerned with the "ntpdc -c peers <hostname>" function actually
finding out about them (this is more paranoia than security, but I
thought it was worth pointing out.)
