  No no, today we are April 14th, 1976, and four days ago was April 10th, 1976, so time is actually kept  :-)
 Thanks everyone, I'll try tonight as soon as I have my computer in front of me.

But try the hwclock stuff first.

The relevant option is in /etc/conf.d/clock : --- # If you want to set the Hardware Clock to the current System Time # during shutdown, then say "yes" here. CLOCK_SYSTOHC="yes" --- followed by % rc-update add clock boot to make sure it runs at boot and halt.
