Thanks for the idea but these machines are sent out to various sites,
many of which do not have any connection to the outside world. The
application running on these machines requires accurate time which is
why the system clock is periodically synched to the hardware clock,
since it is more accurate in the absence of NTP.

Argh, that's one of my pet hates too. I only signed up for this new
gmail account yesterday and didn't realise it defaulted to html.
Thanks for pointing it out politely!
