NTP on Solaris

I tried to unable NTP on a solaris machine. Here's how it works in a nutshell:
cp /etc/inet/ntp.server /etc/inet/ntp.conf
vi /etc/inet/ntp.conf

# comment those lines
# server 127.127.XType.0
# fudge 127.127.XType.0 stratum 0

# add those lines
# server list http://tf.nist.gov/tf-cgi/servers.cgi
server time-b.nist.gov

touch /var/ntp/ntp.drifts
svcadm restart svc:/network/ntp
svcs ntp
ntpq -p

Tortoise GIT

Lately I've use tortoise git and it seems windows support for git is becoming better :)

You'll have to install msysgit before using tortoisegit tortoisegit

The benefit is obvious, now you don't have to learn all the git command line tricks and tips and newcomers to git are less frustrated

I haven't use it on a day to day basis, but I imported a svn history and synchronised my git commit to a svn repo using git-svn rebase and it worked like a charm :)
