That's my story and I'm stuck with it.

Code:
ntpdate -b pool.ntp.org
Perhaps it works in the background until completed?

Put an ampersand at the end of the line and it will background:
Code:
ntpdate -b pool.ntp.org &


Thank you nightflier - I needed that bit of data.

Sorry about my sloppy language ("VL 7 talk").  I meant  just "VL 7."  I just don't know what "Front Page" is or where to find it.  Perhaps that's because I use xfce.

Yes roarde suggestion does work.   I've used for both VL 7.0 light xlde  and VL 7.0 Std Gold xfce.

To follow up on roarde suggestion:  The path is:  Home;  Profile;  Look and Layout Preferences.

From the "front page", select "PROFILE". From the left box under "Modify Profile", choose "Look and Layout Preferences"

Anyone know if Roard's suggestion works in VL7.0 and, if so, how to translate it into VL 7 talk?
I'd wondered whether it was an understandable post. I'm trying to cut my wordiness, guess I cut too far.

This isn't a VL feature, rather a feature of the forum. It exists on most viewed pages, certainly on the entry page, http://forum.vectorlinux.com .
Just scan down from your avatar after signing in to find "Home", look directly right to find "PROFILE". Click through to the rest.

There was a young lady named Bright
She traveled far faster than light
She left one day in a relative way
And returned home the previous night.

a package named 'adjtimex' has hit the untested repo. i thought it may be of some use to people with older hardware. at any rate it looked interesting. here is a quick snip from its readme

Code:
You probably already know that your computer has two clocks - the "real
time clock" (RTC) that runs all the time, and the system clock that runs
only while the computer is on.  The system clock has much better
precision (approximately 1 usec), but the RTC probably has better
long-term stability.  adjtimex can be used to approximately correct the
system clock for drift.

The handiest reference clock is the RTC.  
  adjtimex --compare
shows the time, the difference between the two clocks, the first
difference (how much the system clock has gained or lost relative to
the RTC since the last check), and two kernel time parameters: tick
and frequency offset.  After the first two comparisons, it also prints
suggested values of tick and frequency offset that will adjust the
system clock to approximately agree with the RTC.  Of course, the RTC
may have a systematic error of its own.  clock(8) uses the file
/etc/adjtime to record the drift rate and the time since the RTC was
last set.  adjtimex also consults this file and applies the correction
to the times from the RTC.
