I'm just curious: What was the original reason of creating that neat nc-based gettime? Plain lack of ntpd in busybox?
I had thought about switching to ntpd on some systems with lots of clock drift, but I never looked into it due to lack of time and running the script more often worked well enough hehe.

I believe it was simply smaller, and worked well enough.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.
