I thought this was some sort of late April fools joke, 
untill I read the article about ntpd on slashdot.

My Centos 5.8 box is running ntpd, and I did not notice any 
problems with it. I do a weekly yum update early Sunday 
mornings, but AFAIR I have not rebooted the box yet.

Checking qps, it tells me the uptime is 4 days 23hours, 53 

Kind Regards,
