I've got a laptop with a dead CMOS battery, so this new feature in 4.1RC3 really appeals to me.  I'd love it if DSL would set the clock when it boots up.

Does anybody know a reliable Time Server I can use for Eastern Time Zone?

Is there any way to ask DSL to set the BIOS clock from this startup option if it fetches it successfully?

For a more local its check < >

The actual script called is gettime.lua in /usr/local/bin I wrote the script so that alternate its as well as timeout can be passed on the command line.

Usage: sudo gettime.lua {nist_time_server} {timeout-in-secs}
