	For a variety of reasons, you really want machines on your 
networks to have very, very similar ideas of what time it currently 
is.  Therefore, it's best to get them all synchronising their time 
with NTP services.

	Note that this doesn't mean they all have to be in the same time 
zone or anything, as all programs I know of are capable of figuring 
out that Time X in Zone Y is equivalent to Time W in Zone U.
