I don't have that kind of cash, and thought that I might be able to use it (not realizing that it has an epoch issue).

Can you be a little more explicit than just "epoch issue"?

If it really does NTP, it should be able to handle any date between 
1-Jan-1970 and sometime in 2038.

FWIW, I believe that Symmetricom bought TrueTime and provides whatever 
support is still availabe for TrueTime products.  This might include 
such things as firmware upgrades.

Support from Symmetricom is supposed to be available until 7-June-2007.
