[PLUG] ntp

So I just noticed that my KVM server's clocks were way off. The host OS was 4 minutes behind and the guests were 4 minutes ahead of

Turns out the host did not have ntp installed at all. It's Ubuntu 12.04 and was installed as some sort of minimal installation. A sudo apt-get install ntp and five minutes later it's in good shape.

The guests are debian installs from and they have ntp installed but were not running by default!

To think, Google runs it's own internal NTP servers and had to spread the leap second out over a day, and I'm off by whole minutes!
