Setting Date/Time on Linux

Note to self . . .

Every now and then I need to adjust the time on a Linux box and I always have to look at the man page or dig around online to remember.

To set the date/time to June 27th, 4:04pm:

sudo date 06271604

To make sure that setting sticks in the hardware:

sudo /sbin/hwclock --systohc
