> Immedietly i change i type date and it gives me the old time.
Do you get any error messages when you issue that command?
It may be unrelated, but the "date 1245" command results in error under Linux, too. I suspect that there are different implementations of the date command under different unices. Maybe your FreeBSD version contains a date util that requires a syntax similar to the Linux one? (I am just guessing).
If so, there is an older thread somewhere in this forum, where I posted a message with the syntax of the date command that worked for me on Linux. Maybe you could try that.
