I'd like to ask everyone **not** to use NCAR.NSF.NET ( or
any of the other * fuzzballs as time servers. Granted time
service doesn't take too many resources, the NCAR fuzzball is a
central node in NSFNET, with about 30-40 institutions on the other
side of the ethernet it is connected to and lots of traffic going
through it on its point-to-point links. It is already so congested
that it spasms from time to time. A few cycles here and there at this
point make a tremendous difference in the survivability of NSFNET. So
PLEASE use one of the others to NTP-peer with.
