Time and date

For some reason, despite options during installationi, my clock was not set to Australian Eastern Standard Time. I used the following commands...

rm -rf /etc/localtime

ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/Australia/Melbourne /etc/localtime

date -s ``19:52'' (that being the time it was)

/sbin/hwclock -systohc
