I *LOVE* the GNU version of 'date'

I wish my freaking alarm clock were as robust as GNU's date command.

For example, I looked at my wristwatch and noticed that my computer's
clock was 5 minutes ahead (my watch is synced with the clocks at work).
So I went to a console and typed this:

date -s "5 minutes ago"

And my clock was set back 5 minutes. That *rocks* :D

It's amazing how much better you feel once you've given up hope.
