9/19    How do you set date and time in freebsd?
        \_ one way is via date(1) like with most unixes/unix-workalikes
           root# date 200212041212
           another way is with the ntpdate(8) command given an ntpserver
           root# ntpdate ntpserver
           some ntpservers at ucb  are http://ntp1-1.Berkeley.EDU and
           This could also be combined with xntpd/ntpd to keep your
           clock in sync during operation. --jon

8/20    When I use rsync to backup, it's pretty cool except in cases where
        I rename a directory name from the source. Rsync will just do
        a plain copy. Is there a program that'll detect renaming of
        directories (by checking for children files), or at least
        move them to a dated directory?
        \_ Not related but beware of using rsync as a backup tool.

2/26    If I want to rsync a perforce or svn directory while users
        are checking things in, could I wind up with a corrupted copy?
        \_ sure why not.  if you are really cool, your copy of the svn
           repo is on LVM, and you snap the LVM to copy it.
           \_ It'll seem less cool when you realize you've taken a snapshot
              of a block level device, which only guarantees that this set of

4/3     In "p4 client", modtime/nomodtime sets the file timestamp to
        either the modification time from submitting client or the time that
        the file is fetched.  Is there a way to set the file timestamp to
        the time that the file was submitted, like what ClearCase does?  Thx.
        \_ How is this different from the modtime option? Are you concerned
           about clock skew or timezone differences?

3/17    Anyone using a Windows Mobile based phone and is using a mac to sync/
        backup?  I don't want the current iPhone, but my phone's on its last
        leg, so can't wait for the next iPhone to come out.  I'm considering
        the Moto Q (9h.)  Thanks.
        \_ I think the default iSync for Windows Mobile is not very good.
           Most people I know with a Mac and Windows Mobile use Missing

2/11    I want an rrdtool-like program that can store/retrieve/graph
        arbitrary data, but I don't want it to drop/smooth out data over
        time like rrdtool does.  The amount of data is relatively small
        and I want exact data points stored forever.  Is there something
        like that out there?  I've tried google and freshmeat but I'm not
        finding anything like that.  Thanks.

9/12    My mother-in-law bought an iPhone. I have a CD she would like to
        load onto her iPhone. I ripped the CD into MP3s and imported them
        into iTunes. How can she listen to the CD on her iPhone w/o
        blowing away the music she already had on there (from home) which
        is what iTunes wants to do. I don't have access to her home
        computer, which is the one the phone is registered with. How can I
