Installing NTP daemon

Network Time Protocol can help you keeping your computers time accurate. This is important to maintain correct timestamps in log files. Not to mention how annoying it is with a clock not showing the correct time… Installing a basic NTP server will help your computer to have its time accurately controlled by NTP. The beauty of this is that when your computers time is wrong, NTP will speed up/down your clock to catch up. This is done so that cron and other time dependent tools will not notice anything.
