Let's start keeping time on our server. Otherwise logging and Kerberos won't work as expected and you might forget your coffee break!
If you have a static IP and a somewhat reliable internet connection, you might consider joining the pool.ntp.org initiative. See http://www.pool.ntp.org/ for more information.
Check your timezone settings by issuing:
Install the software:
apt-get install ntp-server ntp-doc
Adjust /etc/ntp.conf for the ntp-servers you want to sync to. Remember to check the policy for their usage! If you want more info about the Debian NTP packages, check the docs at /usr/share/doc/ntp and /usr/share/doc/ntp-doc
