[Pool] time reset

  Its a Virtual Machine at (openhosting.com). A long time ago it was
working fine, no errors or anything. Then out of the blue, these
problems started up. So who knows what happened. It just might be a
crazy clock.

 As long as nobody sees anything strange, then I know its not a config
issue. Its likely a hardware/network issue. Now I doubt its a problem
with openhosting.com in general, because I have a 2nd server up and
running and its working just fine and has no errors at all. Here's the
ntp.org chart: http://www.pool.ntp.org/scores/128.177.27.52

 So I'll chalk it up to a hardware issue and get openhosting to research
the problem.  Its running on Debian (Lenny).


Thanks,
