    i had lost my DSL connection for 2 days, during which time I reset my Tomato several times. I noticed the logs had the wrong time, and I attempted to correct this using the GUI but found that there seemed to be no way to manually set the time? is that right? hmmmm :confused:

    "To set the system clock under Linux, use the date command. As an example, to set the current time and date to July 31, 11:16pm, type ``date 07312316'' (note that the time is given in 24 hour notation). If you wanted to change the year as well, you could type ``date 073123161998''. To set the seconds as well, type ``date 07312316.30'' or ``date 073123161998.30''. To see what Linux thinks the current local time is, run date with no arguments."

    There is also something called the hardware clock which must be set for the time zone corresponding to your locale on the globe. The system reads this hardware clock file and updates the system clock upon boot-up. This is the first time I googled for it. I only got half way through the first sentance to realise that I would strongly prefer the wrong clock setting over learning to set it. No wonder Jon didn't feel like messing with time settings.
