Replace ntpdate with ntp on Ubuntu

By default Ubuntu ships with an ifup script that starts ntpdate in service mode. Not sure why, but in my experience this script often does not work – at least it did not keep the time in sync on any of my machines.

back to root > syncing contacts

As part of back to root I want to move away from Gmail and with this from its contact management. This is a big step – and maybe a big step back – because Google does a great job. The contact management is very flexible, and easy to use. I never ever had to think about synchronization with my Android devices, not even one single second.
