Use the 'date' command

man date

There are other ways, but a general answer is using date. You can look into using servers to update your time as well, if this interests you, look into ntp on freshmeat.net or on google.com/linux

Cool

Ahh, just looked at my slack install scripts again too (pkgtool as root) and you can run timeconfig as well.

Cool
