Watch that. If you only sync once, clock drift (or a bad battery causing 
clock drift) on some machines will put them out as much as several 
minutes in 24 hours. Things like network encryption depend on accurate 
time on all machines or they start slowing down and throwing errors and 
not connecting. It can be a big problem to diagnose.
