the time from a internal stratum server.

I have for tmp measures created a cron job as below::

# Simple but effect email reminder that will prompt Chuck to check 
websites and change monthly WWW Guest pwd's.
# Website http://www.ukas.com the first day of every month.

#minute (0-59)
#|      hour (0-23)
#|      |       day of the month (1-31)
#|      |       |       month of the year (1-12)
#|      |       |       |       day of the week (0-6 with 0=Sunday)
