    Also don't forget about pool.ntp.org; the people that seem to
maintain the software are also organizing public ally-available NTP
services, world-wide. There are several choices, mostly based on your
location, but if you'll point out "0.pool.ntp.org" for your time server,
it'll cycle through the pool of NTP servers offering the service.

    And once you get set up and comfortable with Ubuntu, you might want
to add yourself to that pool, too.

    Everything's at http://www.ntp.org/
