A Possible Synch Alternative
Yeah I know CLI is cool and all but for those who want pointy-clicky I recommend Gnuclear Clock. Besides a certain amout of convenience it posts a menu of a list of time servers, lots of them, so one can always connect right now w/o having to repeat a failed command. The only problem for some is that it hasn't been updated in a few years ( doesn't need to as far as app quality is concerned ) so it depends on gnome-libs 1.x.x or at least needs to lock into gnomeConf.sh. I have installed Dropline Gnome which is based on Gnome 2.x libs and I'm still jumping through hoops to get GnuclearC on my new system. If anyone knows of a more modern equivalent I'd appreciate it since merely installing gnome-libs_1.x.x is not sufficient. It complains about libart incompatibility with Gnome 2 and only gnome-libs from v 1.x.x installed. It may be solved by the time you read this so if you can't help me maybe I can then help you if you're interested in this little app.
