after the "ntpdate -- don't do this thread" subject line won the
award for longest thread in the last four decades, i thought i'd
send up a flare and see what y'all think about my erstwhile tip
is it kapiche? is it kaphut? hmm? (at least i didn't recommend
running it from cron, eh? :)
I use Debian/GNU Linux version 2.2;

SECURITY-CONSCIOUS? Good! Here's how you can use apt-get to keep
your system up-to-date with the latest security patches: in
/etc/apt/sources.list include these lines--
deb http://security.debian.org/debian-security stable/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/debian-non-US stable/non-US main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org stable/updates main contrib non-free
Thereafter, a quick "apt-get update && apt-get upgrade" is all
you need to keep the gremlins at bay.
